"baby, i know you cannot hear me now,
'cause you're fast asleep,
but, i love you now.
colors inside your head go spinning around,
like a ferris wheel,
exploding and falling to the ground.
oh, people are screaming,
people are screaming,
my baby, she's dreaming.
oh, people are shouting,
people are freaking,
i'm just staring at the ceiling,
waiting for the feeling."
i have much more to say, and will sort out a more (i'd say "proper", but my reviews are nothing near "proper") detailed review later. all i want to say, right here and now, is ryan is amazing; pretty much fucking amazing. and, i see monsters blew me completely away. i am still completely unhinged by it.
just wow - i mean really - wow.
thank you, kate. i needed the music more than i have words to say.
