slip off my heels and i meet your embrace / toes slip off cold tiles; tonight, we are unborn / among stars and nebulas, you outshine them all / planetarium / your eyes, vast orbs that capture me in, reflect solar systems / and yet you are a chamber of secrets / even harry, with a brazen sword, couldn't pry you open / barefoot, we drift towards the heavens with all the time in this hourglass / darling, i'm not going anywhere, you know / who said the sky was the limit, little boy? / tonight we are the limit, and the peak is our fever dream
hand on cheek, arm on hip / you carry me like porcelain to the ends of our days / somewhere below, behind secluded streets with rowdy bars, someone plays a lullaby for us / tickling ivory keys on a bench, or perhaps, blowing in a sax made of gold / i know, midas made it himself / babe, we're the suffocating sand trickling out of an hourglass / time is liquid honey in the land of dreams: no place for a small-town girl / do you dream of bigger things? / don't we all?
your touch is hot wax to my flesh / God created lesser sins than you, babe / tick, tock / is our time here running, running faster than Eve to the apple? / i know, because snakes are of a different breed and yet mankind is twisted, twisted in fate / we may be unlucky, but at least we have each other / until tomorrow, when we diverge to different paths / somewhere below, in the city of chasing dreams, someone plays a lone melody on whistling wind
last night i rewatched la la land for the 385935nd time and it never gets old. the essence and beauty of the film is just *chef's kiss* all proper credits due! mia & sebastian... what i would give to have a bond like theirs
