song 3: priya song

And it's day one of my one week song-a-day challenge, huzzah!

Er, this song was written at two in the morning immediately after watching Friday’s episode of Dollhouse. No, really. Because Victor and Sierra make me all squeeful and achey inside, and apparently that equals music, now that I’m in the headspace for that. Also, apparently I learned piano for this song? I don't even know. It needed something, and the African thumb piano was not doing my bidding (not that I actually know how to play that, either).

This is actually really, spectacularly exciting, because I cannot remember the last time I wrote a song, and gave it a melody -- honestly, if not for this project, I doubt this song ever would have existed outside of a very vague passing thought of "hey, you know what would be kind of a neat idea...?"

Also, my songs are streaming at last.fm! Check it out! Tell your friends!

light goes out
inside my head
but you wait for me
but you wait for me
sliding glass
and fingertips
wait for me
will you wait for me

stars went out
the day I arrived
stars go out
when I curl inside
will you wait for me
will you wait for me

I paint clouds
over the windows
over the windows
over my eyes
but I don’t sing
no, I don’t sing no, I don’t sing, I don’t sing
oh will you wait for me

there is no sun inside these walls
I don’t know how anything grows at all
except for you

stars went out
inside my eyes
but you wait for me
you wait for me
stars went out
inside my eyes
but you wait for me
oh, you wait you wait you wait you wait you wait
you wait for me you wait for me you wait for me you wait…

I don’t know how anything grows

stars went out
inside my eyes
but you wait for me you wait for me you wait for me…
stars went out
inside my eyes
but you wait for me
oh you wait for me
