There used to be a greying tower alone on the sea
You became the light on the dark side of me
Love remained a drug that's the high and not the pill
But did you know —
That when it snows
My eyes become large
And the light that you shine
Can't be seen?

I compare you to a kiss from a rose on the grave

I was a DJ in college when I realized that I had been pronouncing 'album' as 'alblum' (with a second L) my whole life. Somehow I had never been corrected, maybe I never had to spell it out. It's all a weird, shameful mystery.
