The Here And After



Jun Miyake
"The Here And After"

album: Stolen From Strangers (2007)


spawn inside this memory again
one earthbound minute, unbent
a moment broken
softly spoken, magic
so here we are

night has thrown its heels at our door
and stormed its way in, bidden
our feet in drunken incantations, moving

happily, happily, ever after
with kisses and curses, dripped in laughter

happily, happily, would I disappear
wishes and wasted breath
at closest dreaming
so far away

counting down
in twos and in threes
with never a word, out loud
this hidden temple, decalescent, stepping

happily, happily, ever after
with kisses and curses, dripped in laughter

hurry to lay it down
where I've made my bed
wishes and wasted breath
at closest dreaming
so far away

as we grow
as we go
to the here and after
I've never forsaken you
that's really something

so hurry to lay me down
where I've made my bed
tends to a wilted pale
throwing up a beat
kick it down
