The farther I wander the more I look back.

And I smile,

And then I laugh.

Over The Rhine

—All My Favorite People

plenilune:

all my favorite people | over the rhine

all my favorite people are broken
believe me, my heart should know
some prayers are better left unspoken
I just want to hold you and let the rest go

all my friends are part saint and part sinner
we lean on each other, try to rise above
we are not afraid to admit we are all still beginners
we are all late bloomers when it comes to love

all my favorite people are broken
believe me, my heart should know
awful believers, skeptical dreamers, step forward
you can stay right here, you don’t have to go

is each wound you’ve received just a burdensome gift
it gets so hard to lift yourself up off the ground
but the poet says we must praise a mutilated world
we’re all working the graveyard shift
you might as well sing along

'cause all my favorite people are broken
believe me, my heart should know
as for your tender heart, this world’s going to rip it wide open
it ain’t gonna be pretty, but you’re not alone

all my favorite people are broken
believe me, my heart should know
awful believers, skeptical dreamers, you’re welcome
yeah, you’re safe right here, you don’t have to go

'cause all my favorite people are broken
believe me, I should know
some prayers are better left unspoken
I just want to hold you and let the rest go
