Faraway Look

I've sat with my fingers on the keyboard so many times recently wanting to type out what I think and feel.

Like I use to.

I remember back when I would bang out post after post about my pain, my feelings, my hopes, my dreams and fears, the struggles, the victories, all the good and the bad.

But I just can't seem to find the words anymore.

Then I heard this song.

Not since I first listened to Lana Del Rey several years ago have I felt so breathlessly taken by an artist.

Yola is phenomenal.

And this song...

Jesus, she took a snap shot of my life.


 You lit the candles on the cake
And threw the match down on the floor
Wish I knew what you were wishing for
Handing out the paper plates
To all your friends that you adore
Are you haunted and wanting more?

That faraway look in your eyes
It's getting harder to disguise
Nobody moves the way you do
Walking 'round the grocery store
Only you know what you're looking for

And when your working day is through
You walk the darkness to your bed
To dream the dreams that live inside your head
That faraway look in your eyes
It's getting harder to disguise
That faraway look in your eyes
It's getting harder to disguise
