about

For the second last track of the Crankbox Obeys series, we asked for a suggestion that had been given to us sometime in the past year, but that we hadn't picked. The one we got was "storytime", and of all the options that presented us, we picked a rare choice: a love song.

lyrics

Love me
As I tell my story
Revel in my glory
Feel my failure, too
There is such a lot to tell
If you love me, listen well

Mistakes
Tiny jewelled heartbreaks
Stupid, treasured keepsakes
These I offer you
Notice how they glitter bright
Even in the dimmest light

If you truly care for me
Build a house for me in your memory
For love earns a story

Sculpture
Chiseled, worn and rendered
Artists swinging hammers
Chisels fresh and keen
Do you want to leave your mark?
Do you want to heal my scars?

Vital
No process is final
When the hammers idle
Paint a pretty scene
Hang a painting in your room
Scent the frame with my perfume

If you truly care for me
Build a house for me in your memory
For love, it earns a story

And a lover listens
A lover listens
Ah

If you truly care for me
Build a house for me in your memory
For love, love earns a story

And a lover listens
A lover listens
A lover listens
