[COVER] Deciphering Me

I couldn’t take it anymore and finally did a cover of this wonderful song by Brooke Fraser, which I was exposed to by Lorr a couple years back when Sycamore played it at LOAH. This version just has shoddy acoustic guitar and even shoddier singing — we should really replace that singer. Maybe in the near future I’ll add some drums and sexy piano/guitar riffs eh?

…but here we go:

Lyrics:

Friend, it’s getting late
We should be going
We’ve been sat here beneath these flickering neons for hours
while I am cracking their code, you are deciphering me
for i am a mystery, I am a locked room in a tall tower

Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home?
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining just to show we belong?
We belong.

Your telescope eyes see everything clearly
My vision is blurred but i know what i heard echoing all around
while I am tuning you in, you are deciphering me
not such a mystery, not such a faint in a far away sound

It’s love, it’s love that holds us
We will be alright
It’s truth, it’s truth that shows us
If we’ll walk in it’s (his) light

Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home?
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining just to show we belong?

Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home? (we belong)
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining goes to show we belong?
We belong.

[ORIGINAL] Foxes Chasing Mustard, Catching Trees

After having over a year of not being able to complete any of my horrible ballads, this little gem just popped out from my heart. On one side, its a (hopefully, or hopelessly) romancing song (to God and…nevermind, let’s not over-analyze, right?), on another I’m being as damn honest with myself that I am insufficient as a mortal man, and on another I’m asking you and myself what is in our hearts. Oh, and I somehow was able to allude to faith, if it applies to you. Foxes? yes, I’ve always wanted to use that phrase ever since mewithoutYou’s 2nd album, and ever since one of my first Sunday school classes I’ve always thought of those foxes to be cute (instead of malicious). Cute like the ones in Mini Ninja or Foxkeh.

Take a listen (don’t give up on me until its done, yo):

Lyrics:

Catch for us the foxes,
with the torches on their tails.
Tonight they run through our fields,
destroying all their yield.

To chase and to be chased;
to catch and to be caught.
I’ll see you face-to-face,
and see everything I’m not.

Go into the vineyards,
try to find the mustard seed.
Has it died on the trail now?
Or did it grow into a tree?

I’m a part of you,
you’re a part of me.
Take a look inside (of your heart),
tell me who you see.
