Still falling Breathless and on again Inside today Beside me today Around broken in two 'Till you eyes shed Into dust Like two strangers Turning into dust 'Till my hand shook with the way I fear
I could possibly be fading Or have something more to gain I could feel myself growing older I could feel myself under your fate Under your fate
It was you breathless and tall I could feel my eyes turning into dust And two strangers turning into dust Turning into dust

Grayson from The Desertmay be their greatest song in my opinion
John-mark Ratcliffe from Lancaster (60 Miles From Manchester On The Nnwcoast)I first heard it in 2018 June ish. I just randomly decided to ask the real meaning behind her words. I applaud you, because you have hit the nail on the head. We have all felt this confusing concoction of abandonment/guilt/blame/why and then eventual growing colder towards a warm feelings for your loss nomatter what or who it may be. It was you breathless and torn ( not sure!) And because he was unsure if he wanted to maintain his partnershiwith her she cried her eyes into dust. As she witnesses two lovers who have now become strangers turn into the dust of time. She is beautiful, her lyrics are so human. I only discovered her because of rick and morty about a year ago. But im just glad know of her now. I don't remember hearing of her in the nineties in the UK.... (((we had the I.R.A. and gulf and Yugoslavia etc, etc....sadly too much indifference in our affairs for feelings of empathic human interaction, around that time, we had sinade o Connor and u2 and the GOD-Damn Smiths, ohH! And Do not get me started with the musical representation of clinical depression with suicidal tendencies...... the cure!!!!! ( They are known for not being known) )))))) about not knowing of her in the nineties, I'm just glad I discovered her and ain't going to snuff it not hearing her deliver a combination of everyday words in such a beautiful combination of such an explanetetry way everyone knows what she is saying to every individual listener. True wordsmith. Makes Lana look like a novice.
Cara from New YorkHeard this in the season 3 finale of Handmaid’s Tale. Had it on repeat ever since (is that still a thing??) It is the song I now associate with the Corona Virus and the strangeness of the world right now, as this is when I discovered this haunting song.
Mike from Idahoamazing & hauntingly beautiful piece of dark folk music. just incredible.
Smartalek from Boston, MaNot to mention it provides the backdrop for the first get-together of the protagonists in the great girls-coming-of-age movie "Foxfire," in which "Legs" (a young Angelina Jolie) tattoos first herself, then the other girls, to celebrate their triumph over the skeezoid teacher who had molested two of them. One of the most powerful & haunting scenes ever -- and made more so by this track.
Marie from Durham, United KingdomToday is September 20th 2011, and i heard this song for the first time last night on an advert for 'Gears of war' and i can honestly say it is one of the most beautiful, haunting tracks i have ever heard.
Bruce Springsteen wrote "Blinded By The Light," which was a #1 hit for Manfred Mann's Earth Band. The "Madman Drummers" line is a reference to Springsteen's first E-Street drummer, Vinnie "Mad dog" Lopez.
