Liner Notes: 

OK, here's lyric No. 2. There's a very thin story in here. As a lyric writer, I, of course, love words and I love music that brings the words alive. But if this lyric becomes a song, the words are really just an excuse to create some cool music.

Please let me know if you'd like to set this to music!

--Doug

Lyrics: 

Diamonds cutting
Through the glass
Of yesterday

In your hands
Offenses unatoned

Diamonds cutting
Through the glass
Of yesterday

In your hands
The reasons I’m alone

(Chorus)
Somehow
You wring blood
From roses
(4X)

Space is losing
Its race
In the universe

In your hands
Infinity’s a stone

Time is losing
Its race
In the universe

In your hands
Forever has no home

(Chorus)
Somehow
You wring blood
From roses
(4X)

(Bridge)
You once…
Held my heart
You once…
Held my heart
You once…
Held my heart…
Like a rose

(Instrumental)

(Chorus)
Somehow
You wring blood
From roses
(8X)

This is a great lyric, Doug. Wow. I don't do dream pop (and I'm on a self-enforced curfew against collabing until I get a couple old projects done) but I do hope you get a collab for this one!

Cosmically cool lyrics. Strong images, and bridge puts it all together. I really like the repetitions and short lines. They make this very singable and easy to put into music. I would like to give it a go if it's not taken.
