i just want this frame to freeze

sometimes life goes so fast. hard to believe, but it's been nearly a month since my last post. in a little over a week, my life is going to get considerably suckier because my girlfriend is moving 2,500 miles away. in the meantime it's been all about finding as much together time as possible before she leaves, which explains why i have not been making time for any of this. it's been hard at times to be happy in the face of this impending distance, but never for a moment have i not wanted everything to freeze.

portastatic : "song for a clock" mp3
from the lp be still please (merge records, 2006)
last night we just fell into bed
and let the poison drain out of our heads
before the sun strikes shade across the back of your bare legs
we'll be sleeping
heavy with love instead

heavy with love instead

be still, be still please
oh i just want everything to freeze
those skinny little arms are a windmill
we all tumble forward like a crooked old wheel, i know
i know, but tonight be still
please be still

this morning i was made aware
as i tried to cut the back of my hair
of the first mosquito of the year
buzzing down the surface of the mirror
like winter never happened and another summer's near
but i just want to keep the calendar here

be still, be still please
oh i just want this frame to freeze
those skinny little arms are a windmill
and we all tumble forward like a crooked old wheel, i know
i know, but today be still
please be still
