lyrics

I LOOKED FOR YOU
(e. fischer)

i looked for you to look for me first
navigate the thorns of another crowded room
i didn’t really mind, it was worth it to find
something to believe... have nothing to hide

i looked for you to look for me first
as the waves kept coming, wild hearted and weird
waves of discomfort, sailing the deep
a man with a mission... and me, a thief

i spit in your eyes and split your lip
you sliced up my stories with your razorsharp wit
free as the wind but caught up inside
in perfectly tragic shattering... delight

and if you or i did finally become
the fallible alien, breathing open air
to need nothing and no one
is a tempting grace
but to instead leap laughing
into ravenous space
is fucking brilliant, everything’s fair
in the cool compassion of shared despair

i looked for you to look for me first
in an oddly brutal comedy of thirst
it’s useless to rage at mindless fate
damaged forever. but face... to face.
