When love came and told me I shouldn’t sleep

Written by

Rufus Wainwright – Bewitched

horizontally speaking he’s at his very best.

For one of such emotion, Wainwright summons great composure from every touch of key and crackle of throat. It’s a song that would bring a crowd to calm and stillness, but for applause at songs end. I’m in love with the piano pumping blood, with the voice of such great bravery – you can only help but feel privileged to be part of this, to be a witness. A distinct voice, a wandering eye over diary entries, a spillage of heart-discovery for you and for me. One of few songs to bring me to tears.

and long for the day when I’ll cling to him.

    It’s like the soft thigh of a lady coated in honey, and you’re delving in; all the while she’s telling you her most inner secrets. That, my friend, is better than alright. Rather delicious. Quite so.

    Dunno about that one.

Got something to say?
