I walked, cause you walked

Sufjan Stevens er en av de få artistene som holder meg stadig interessert, stadig imponert. Jeg har hatt gleden av å se ham live to ganger, og særlig den siste konserten var en ganske intens opplevelse.

Han har kommet med et nytt studioalbum. Alle hjerter gleder seg, i alle fall mitt.

Lover, will you look at me now?
I’m already dead to you
but I’m inclined to explain
to you what I could not before
Whatever you didn’t do, what you couldn’t say
I am sorry that the worst has arrived
For I deserve more.
for at least I deserve the respect of a kiss goodbye

Tell me, do you think of me now
as I think of you?
For I could not have shaken the touch of your breath on my arm
For it has stayed in me as an epithet
I am sorry the worst has arrived
For I’m on the floor
In the room where we made it our last touch of the night

I walked, cause you walked
but I won’t probably get very far
sensation to what you said
but I’m not about to expect something more
I would not have run off
but I couldn’t bear that it’s me
It’s my fault
I should not be so lost
but I’ve got nothing left to love

Lover, will you look from me now
I’m already dead
but I’ve come to explain
why I left such a mess on the floor
For when you went away
I went crazy. I was wild with the breast of a dog
I ran through the night
with the knife in my chest
with the lust of your loveless life

I walked, cause you walked
but I won’t probably get very far
sensation to what you said
but I’m not about to expect something more
I would not have run off
But I couldn’t bear that it’s me
It’s my fault
I should not be so lost
But I’ve got nothing left to love
