"Invisible" - Lyrics by da Ballad

Posted by Malleus , 10 February 2013 · 301 views

Invisible song. Yeah. Yeah I like that.
 
Anyways, hi GDC blog. I am terribly sad and horrible and I was writing this really awful shit when I realized it would be kind of fun to not just write through the exact words I wanted to say, but be less obvious. It's still pretty damn obvious but you get what I mean. Anyways, yeah. Read them if you want.
 

I watched the powerlines go up
Men in orange then followed them
Then I watched the wires all get stuck
Then the tired men began again


It took some time but then they finished
The wires stood still, the sun got lower
I tried to keep them still as best I could
But you can’t stop the sky from falling over


And the poles stood tall
I made them with my heart
So when I watched them fall
You can guess it was hard


But I guess sometimes there’s nowhere to go
Sometimes the electricity, despite the heat, just doesn’t flow
And I need your hands to help me pick this up once more
But I don’t know where you went and my strength is on the floor


I heard the wind rip through my house
Stood by and watched it run through
I didn’t think to get out or try to move
I just stood frozen still and thought of you


The hardest part of letting go of something you watched grow
Is convincing yourself you’re happy, even when you already know


So when I walk sometimes I’ll look up to the sky
See the powerlines as some black birds pass by
And the next time they crash on me like they’ve crashed before
I’ll be ready for this aching heart once more

Really love this! The last four lines are my favourites. You have some great metaphors in here.
