about

This is one of the first Boy With Strings songs. The melody in chorus reminds a bit a song from one of my favourite artists Kate Bush.

lyrics

I can hear you breathing near
your arm so warm around me
And still I feel the cold, the fear:
loneliness has found me.

Again I shiver in the calm
when restless dreams come swarm me
I've placed my being on your palm
so how come you can't warm me?

And you sleep like a child, like an angel

How can you do it
aren't you afraid
that I might be different
when you awake
That I might be older,
that I might be gone,
that we could be colder
in warmth of the sun?

I'm half awake and half asleep
convictions passing by me
although I know I'm yours to keep
my feelings still defy me.

But you sleep like a child, like an angel

How can you do it
aren't you afraid
that I might be different
when you awake
That I might be older,
that I might be gone,
that we could be colder
in warmth of the sun?

And you sleep like a child, like an angel

His powerful and emotional vocals are combined with looped violins, string orchestra, subtle beats and warm ambient synths. His story is a musical fantasy written in the form of ear-catching pop songs, chasing after moments that were not, spaces between memories. ... more
