current favorite lyrics

Squint skyward and listen
Loving him, we move within his borders
Just asterisms in the stars' set order.
We could stand for a century,
With our heads cocked,
In the broad daylight at this thing
In bodies that don't keep,
Dumbstuck with the sweetness of being
'Til we don't be.
Told: Take this,
And eat this.

- From Emily by Joanna Newsom

Genius. Read the lyrics to Sawdust and Diamonds too - The part about knowing when the wave breaks gets me every time.
