Crush

"My future wife sleeps across the room, it's 3 a.m. I am far too shy to write a song like this in front of anyone, even her. Her apartment sits above a restored, historic theatre. The riff is stolen, but I can never say where it came from. I am shamed by that, but I make it mine nonetheless. I want to be an original, without a prior copy. I cannot escape that I am made up of tiny, stitched together pieces. Curtis Mayfield's poetry inspires the romantic lyric. The whole world shimmers for all at night. Light dances off the face of my beloved. I am both in love and crushed by love. The bells are there to remind me." -BC, Gish 2011 re-issue liner notes

 

Lyrics

you wrap your arms around
a feeling that surrounds
like liquid peppermint
just taste the drinks that she sent

and this feeling shivers down your spine
love comes in colors i can't deny
all that matters is love, love, your love

you're sleeping in your bed
just rest your weary head
maybe you shouldn't care
throw away those dreams and dares

and i wonder if it matters to me
love comes in colors i can't deny
all that shimmers is love, love, your love
your love
your love
