i walk the dark star, the lost sky
searching for your signal, receive mine
i called you cold and our tears became laughter
happy ever after

out of our secrets, we built a home
confide and fortify, blood, bone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

the bitter burden of a signal run cold
you became the dark star and left me all alone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

the bitter burden of a signal run cold
you became the dark star and left me all alone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

and when we said the words 'i love you'
i said them 'cause they are true
why would you say those words to me
if you could not follow through?
go wash your mouth out, child

i walk the dark star, the lost sky
searching for your signal, receive mine
i called you cold and our tears became laughter
happy ever after

out of our secrets, we built a home
confide and fortify, blood, bone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

the bitter burden of a signal run cold
you became the dark star and left me all alone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

and when we said the words "i love you"
i said them 'cause they are true
why would you say those words to me
if you could not follow through?
go wash your mouth out, child

i walk the dark star, the lost sky
searching for your signal, receive mine
i called you cold and our tears became laughter
happy ever after

out of our secrets, we built a home
confide and fortify, blood, bone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

the bitter burden of a signal run cold
you became the dark star and left me all alone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

the bitter burden of a signal run cold
you became the dark star and left me all alone
a love like i was comes 'round once in a lifetime
sending you a lifeline

and when we said the words "i love you"

After long experience, I truly believe that folk in relationships should never say "I love you". Even if it's true at first (whatever 'love' is) it very quickly becomes a pointless ritual, and carries so much baggage it could be used as an airport carousel.

Agreed.

Wonderful. 
The video of this on you tube is weird — really weird,
truly disgusting
I seem to have heard this more than 6 times on RP  during the last 30 days...
New music.  Cool!
I found this song very annoying

She was happy after recording this...

 

You could say she was cock-a-hoop


Lyrics paint a sad picture.
She sounds so much like Sarah Slean that I keep double checking the credits.
I kept waiting for it to kick in and take off, but it never did. It just kept going til it didn't.

8->10 without a second's thought.

Thank you BillG for introducing me to so many fantastic artists! 

 
Agreed! Although for me it's a 6->8, for now at least.  The kudos to BillG are the same.

Jesca opened up for the Eels when I saw them live several years ago.

I became a big fan immediately.

After she was done she went out and worked her merchandise table by herself. 

 
That's where I know her from...the Eels show...thanks for reminding me as I couldn't quite put my finger on it!
What happened to her eye?
Inquiring minds want to know.

Slightly reminds me of "Listening Wind" by Peter Gabriel. 8
