Vanilla Twilight

There is this song by Owl City that I am in love with because I feel like it is talking about the missing and longing that I feel for Michael. It brings me comfort to think about him and this song is talk about just that, thinking of the one you love who is no longer with you. This song is so good, I suggest downloading it!

The stars lean down to kiss you
And I lie awake and miss you
Pour me a heavy dose of atmosphere

'Cause I'll doze off safe and soundly
But I'll miss your arms around me
I'd send a postcard to you, dear
'Cause I wish you were here

I'll watch the night turn light-blue
But it's not the same without you
Because it takes two to whisper quietly

The silence isn't so bad
'Til I look at my hands and feel sad
'Cause the spaces between my fingers
Are right where yours fit perfectly

I'll find repose in new ways
Though I haven't slept in two days
'Cause cold nostalgia
Chills me to the bone

But drenched in vanilla twilight
I'll sit on the front porch all night
Waist-deep in thought because
When I think of you I don't feel so alone

I don't feel so alone, I don't feel so alone

As many times as I blink
I'll think of you tonight
I'll think of you tonight

When violet eyes get brighter
And heavy wings grow lighter
I'll taste the sky and feel alive again

And I'll forget the world that I knew
But I swear I won't forget you
Oh, if my voice could reach
Back through the past
I'd whisper in your ear
Oh darling, I wish you were here

  1. I found your blog when I was searching, like always searching. My husband was also killed in a motorcycle accident on Sept 5, 2009. It was 6 months this week and it is hard. Vanilla Twilight I would listen to over and over and still do when it first happened. I blog about him here because of criticism about choices I have made for myself and our children. I first blogged about it here
