(New full, decent song. Yay me.)

Two first things to note:

  1. This song could stand alone, but for the full effect, you should read jarofclay’s It Takes Two. Yes, the song is named after the fic, which is beautiful and just… aaaaaah, the aokuro feelings, yes!; and
  2. This is my very, very late birthday gift to itsthechangingoftheseasons. Forgive me, Ahleesi, I could do no more than this. >_<

Secondly, one should never edit a song over a duration of two weeks, else one would like certain inconsistencies to bleed into the audio.

I keep having this dream about clothes
threadbare, unraveling at seams
I feel like floating, drowning
in a violent stream of sounds
Seems somebody is holding me up
I can taste the water from my lungs
seems somebody is keeping me up

The tower so high, the places I fall
The top where you stand, where you see it all
The mountain is far, the river is cold
The blue in your eyes has darkened to coal
And now we know 
It takes two to fall

I keep pushing my feet as I run
breathless, dizzy with the fear
I see afternoons bathed in the colours
of bruises and sunsets and fire

It seems somebody is falling behind
I can feel the stitches at my sides
Seems somebody is waiting for a sign

The tower so high, the places I fall
The top where you stand, where you see it all
The mountain is far, the river is cold
The blue in your eyes has darkened to coal
The lost and not found, the games that we know
The light and the shadow, the story untold
And now we know 
It takes two to fall

It takes two to break and bend
and though I cannot see the end
I will run and reach the end if you wait for me
Promise I’ll meet you there
It takes two to heal and mend
It takes two to breathe again
Still unsure how far it goes, but I see it clear
the shadow is closer again

The tower so high, the places I fall
The top where you stand, where you see it all
The mountain is far, the river is cold
The blue in your eyes has darkened to coal
And now we know 
It takes two to fall

happy birthday alice
