about

Sometimes a person is convinced they are, in fact, a fairy in disguise, sent down to kiss people and then disappear into a black hole, wanting nothing, giving strange love and joy. Then occasionally a fairy gets trapped inside a slow-moving black and white world like a stop-motion dream. Why do some people find this so hard to understand?!

lyrics

Nothing ever seems real in the rain
When you sang yourself to outer space
I would look in, from my place outside the window
Fairies can dream of dance that can't exist

You lost all your limbs while I was sleeping
And your silver blood shone like the night
Touch my head, and we'll both wake up with a fever
How else will you know what it's like to think aboutcha?

Fairies make things real that can't exist
So I never thought that we'd end up like this
When we kiss you it's because we love you
Not just because we want another piece of you

Fractured trees hang restless in the sky
In a night where streetlights hid the moon from our eyes
The universe fades til the dust has no reflection
But I am still here, oh lord I'm still sitting here

Lily & King Melbourne, Australia
