Lonely Resonator

from by Fish & Bird

lyrics

we moan with morbid satisfaction
who can sing the saddest song?
we teeter as we sing along
we live for that wincing reaction
who expresses heartbreak best,
who can get us right in the chest?

a heart’s a part of something greater,
it’s just a lonely resonator

we sit in the concrete stairwell,
it sounds like a cathedral
reflections ward off evil
tease out an ode or a farewell,
I’ll sing you one I swear I know
how’s that chorus go...

these mumbled incantations have the most power
when they’re sung in the smallest hours
the tune sounds appalachian & the words are modern
they sting like a rope burn

a heart’s a part of something greater,
it’s just a lonely resonator
see how it grows in the echoes

the sleeplessness of psyche
you sit there at her feet, just to feel her heat
it all seems so unlikely

a heart’s a part of something greater,
it’s just a lonely resonator
see how it grows in the echoes
