19 Jun Wide Awake, It’s Morning
words and visuals from my last may days in barcelona.
the sun came up with no conclusions.
I tried to talk but the words got in the way
I’m not sure what Im trying to say,
maybe it’s something about this place
the other day I woke up in a dream
collected things I will not keep
wildflowers and borrowed books of poetry
teabag sunrise vanilla honey steeps
what language do you think in?
in what moments do you feel most alive?
can you live with no conclusions?
can you be you
and not you
all at the same time
and this is what I come back to
In the early morning light
words too many, lives too few
almost out of sight
I’m trying to remember
what it’s like to close my eyes
to be a part of a part of moving
all golden and alive
the sun came up with no conclusions
“I’m Wide Awake, It’s Morning” is an album that has been a cornerstone to my source of inspiration, as has the music and words of Conor Oberst in all it’s many forms. The album goes through a wash of poetry and feeling and ends with the first line of the last track that has sunk into my life. the sun came up with no conclusions.
