Pien Pouwels The first line was all it took for me. I swear, goose bumps arose everywhere and I felt like I couldn't breathe. Somehow, this is a very relateable song. And to be frank, it's a piece of fucking art.

lyrics

Steady as a rock,
I stand, I wait
With eyes that see,
but eyes that can't erase
and hands that hold,
but hands that can't embrace;
a creature longing for some saving grace.

Oh and I have long since
seen the sun
it set along the banks
when I was young
Oh, and it's been long
since you've been near,
but fate was never kind to us, my dear.


So send me out to space
and cut me free
and like a satellite
just look for me
oh and if there's darkness
in your sight
I'll be in the corner of the night


We live
We grow
We die
It snows

The ro-
tation
The earth
The sun

We write
We read
We love
We need

We need
We need
We need
I need

I need
I need
I need
I need

So send me into space
and cut me free
and like a satellite
just look for me
