30 I Know You'll...

    Newer Older

    Sheets of empty canvas, untouched sheets of clay
    Were laid spread out before me as her body once did
    All five horizons revolved around her soul
    As the earth to the sun
    Now the air I've tasted and breathed has taken a turn
    Ooh, and all I taught her was everything
    Ooh, I know she gave me all that she wore
    And now my bitter hands chafe beneath the clouds
    Of what was everything?

    Oh, the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by some kids at play
    I can feel their laughter, so why do I sear
    Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin round my head
    I'm spinning, oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can drop away

    And now my bitter hands cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures have all been washed in black, tattooed everything...

    All the love gone bad turned my world to black
    Tattooed all I see, all that I am, all I will be
    Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...

    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star
    In somebody else's sky, but why, why, why
    Can't it be, can't it be mine
    - "Black" by Pearl Jam

      OMG, this is one my favorite songs. I remember hearing this song all the time when I was really and never knowing what it meant or what it was about but I loved it anyway.

      i came across this image on some random reblog site, and it's inspired me to get a tattoo soon someday very much similar to it, i've heard this song a million times but never recognized the lyrics until I decided to search the words in google and found your flickr, so hi and thank you :)
