Without thinking, this was the line I chose:
I am not very good with lyrics, preferring to listen to the beat and the melody. But some of the lines in Black (written by Eddie Vedder) are incredibly beautiful.
Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clayWere laid spread out before me as her body once did All five horizons revolved around her soul as the earth to the sun Now the air I tasted and breathed has taken a turn, ooh And all I taught her was everything Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the cloudsOf what was everything Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black Tattooed everything
I take a walk outside, I’m surrounded by some kids at playI can feel their laughter, so why do I sear Oh and twisted thoughts that spin ’round my head I’m spinning, oh I’m spinning, how quick the sun can drop away
And now my bitter hands cradle broken glassOf what was everything All the pictures have all been washed in black Tattooed everything
All the love gone bad turned my world to blackTattooed all I see, all that I am, all I’ll be yeah Oh oh ooh
I know someday you’ll have a beautiful lifeI know you’ll be a star in somebody else’s sky, but why Why, why can’t it be, oh can’t it be mine? Ooh, ah yeah, ah ooh
