Which line from this album made you finally shed a tear?
>Should I tear my heart out now? Everything I feel returns to you somehow.
What do you think the meaning of this line was? I understand that his mom had schizophrenia, so maybe it's from his mom's point of view during an episode, asking grown up Suffy genuinely, what was wrong?
I'm like 90% sure he sings those parts from the point of view of his mom, due to him prefacing them with like pet names you'd give to a child (my little hawk, etc). It's more like she's telling him not to be sad because everyone dies eventually and that she's in a better place
basically Sufjan's mother comforting him about her own death :(
>tfw got friendzoned by the perfect girl
This line kills me
>On the sheet I see your horizon
>All of me pressed onto you
>But in this light you look like Poseidon
>I’m just a ghost you walk right through
lots of good lyrics on this album but thats the kicker for me
>I love you more than the world can contain
>in its lonely and ramshackle head
>there’s only a shadow of me
>in a manner of speaking I'm dead
gives me chills every time. and these>>61957023>>61957201
>For my prayer has always been love
>What did I do to deserve this?
also not lines that touched me personally but i feel they describe the feeling of losing a loved one and reflecting upon death and life very accurately, very good lyrics :
>My brother had a daughter
>The beauty that she brings, illumination
<Don’t back down, there is nothing left
>The breakers in the bar, no reason to live
>I’m a fool in the fetter
>I am a man with a heart that offends with its lonely and greedy demands
