I think the middle of the second stanza is "To ease the loss of youth & the many years I've saved you."

I'm not sure about "saved", but that's what I'm seeing.

Also, the missing word in the next line could possibly be "pages"...maybe?

Its a combination of yours and mine now that i look at it.

"To ease the loss of youth & the many years I've loved you."

'There's nothing like another soul/mind that's been cut up the same'

That one is tricky I think it is either soul or mind though.

Haha, me too! But why did he have to put his hand over part of the lyrics?! Evil or Very Mad Normally I would bring out the frying pan, but I just can't do that to Brian. Razz

Yes! I think you got it! "There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same". That looks right.

That line kind of kills me, in a good way. Sad I love you

I don't know how much sense it makes, but on the last line of the second stanza, I keep seeing "Pages plead forgiven, every word handwritten." scratch

Edit: whoops, sorry Christophe, I didn't see that you had just posted that.

yes i think your right about the pages part

now bea wrote it as

"__ plead forgiven, every word handwritten"

but do you suppose that the "pages plead forgiven" comes after actually, and is another line?

im not sure if the line before "every word is handwritten" is crossed out and is being replaced with "pages plead forgiven" or not.


maybe its suppose to be

"___ every word handwritten
_ pages plead forgiven"

I think the orginal line is crossed out so it is supposed to go:

'Pages plead forgiven, every word handwritten.'

I think so it's hard to tell. It sounds better like that. Every word handwritten sounds more final than pages plead forgiven so to me it makes sense to be the last line in that section.

i agree, but i think there is something written before the "pages plead forgiven" its kind of mushed in there.

it looks like
"of the"
or - " on the"
or even just - " of "

do you see it?

edit : it might be "after" actually

^I think that might actually be &... I'm not positive about that though. Can you tell what is written in the margin of the page next to that stanza?

Yep yep! It's time to have us all committed. Maybe we can get adjoining rooms in the looney bin so we can continue discussing our obsession. geek

pull it out, turn it up, whats your favorite song?
thats mine, ive been crying to it since i was young.
i know there's someone out there feeling just like i feel
i know they're waiting up, i know they're waiting to hear
and i've been holding my breath, ive been holding my breath
for too many years to count...

& we waited for sirens that never come
and we only write by the moon, every word handwritten
and to ease the loss of youth and how many years I've missed you
Pages plead forgiveness, every word handwritten.


let it out, let me in, take a hold of my hand
There's nothing like another soul that's been cut up the same
and did you wanna just drive without a word inbetween
I can understand, you need a minute to breathe and to sow up the seams
after all this defeat...

being in the dark, I cherish the moonlight...
I am in love with the way you're in love with the night
and it travels from heart to limb to pen...
