Earthbound Starlight - Duncan Sheik

Posted by Atish in ,

The video is a little creepy, sad, intriguing and classy at the same time. And it tells a story. My first introduction to Duncan Sheik was through a friend. Subsequently, Spring Awakening put him on my mind's map. But I guess, it had to do with the time I discovered him (I had other things happening in my life) - that I never really dug deeper. Today some random YouTube browsing brought me to his music again. And this time around, I was in the perfect mood to explore.

Check out the website of the new album Whisper House and know the story behind it.



Lyrics
[]

What are you looking at, what do you see?
Is it the truth or a strange fantasy?
Whenever you're watching
You're changing the scene
Time is a place, this place is a song
Where mothers are distant and fathers are gone
He too may be watching but he's not letting on

Can't dry your eyes
Or say it's alright
Even though he might
And she can't kiss your cheek
As the days become weeks
No rewind
No repeats
Days, nights, wrongs, rights, earthbound starlight

Hey, are you listening?
What is the sound of things that you lose that you never have found?
You're finding the way
Or turning around
Dancer with destiny
Tempter of fate
The life that you lived is only a taste
Sometimes the sweetest is the time that you waste

I won't dry your eyes
Or say it's alright
'Cause sometimes that's the lie
[ Duncan Sheik Lyrics are found on www.songlyrics.com ]
Even if she kissed your cheek
Still the days become weeks
No rewind
No repeats
Steal your heart
Life is hard
Never easy, believe me

Need no more questions
Maybes are mights
Darkness descends, run out of light
When you go blind
You get second sight
The deeper you dive
The greater the heights

So don't dry your eyes
Or say it's alright
Life is hard
It's a fight
Even if she kissed your cheek
Still the days become weeks
No rewind
No repeats
As the days become weeks
No remind
No repeats
Days, nights, wrongs, rights, earthbound starlight

Duncan Sheik is one of the most creative artists in the world. I loved "White Limousine" as well.
