finally! after a few weeks of constant shows & constant work, i have a new song to post here. but it’s not mine - it’s actually a collaboration between the always, always wonderful&perfect rachel levy (R.L. Kelly) and my friend/former bandmate eric livingston. rachel wrote an incredible song based around a poem eric wrote & showed me forever ago that i love, so naturally i was very, very excited when i heard about it, when i heard it, and when i got permission to post it here. it’s not mastered or anything yet & im not positive if this is the finished version or a demo, but it’s the one rachel sent eric & later me.
the lyrics/poem is as follows
my friends do not know about
the soft black thing inside me when
i am talking to them. while i am sleeping
it floats next to my bed.
it is not for any of
them. soon they will
start to see it. when i kiss them
they will feel it protrude into them and when
they are laying
next to me they will feel
the warmth of it.
nothing is keeping me from it and i know
one day there will
be nothing that anyone
can do for me. it will become
me it will envelope
read more of eric’s stuff here and listen to more of rachel’s songs here (among other places)
they’re both incredibly talented and i love them a lot.
this is song 100.
