What's On My Playlist Nowadays?

It's been a while. I am so busy (and so un-inspired) I haven't been writing. Anyway, I fell in love with this song. It has such a beautiful lyrics, so I just want to share it ^^ Her song reminds me of Brooke Fraser's Albertine (don't know why). Here goes:

Laura Jane Scott - The Librarian

I know the distance it takes
to sail around the world
I've done it many times
on seas of Van Gogh green
And every night with certainty
the stars descend around the whole like fireflies

It's no surprise I'm here tonight
Holding out hope for a change in the tide

Painted windows on the skyline
Sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone

I know the secret waves
that lap around the world
The mermaids sing of them
as they brush their hair with coral
Where every lighthouse sends a beam
like Roman columns to a city down below

And this I know: to plunge down and breathe
Is more than possible if you believe

Painted windows on the skyline
Sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone

La la la la (8x)

I know the distance it takes
to sail around the world
I've done it many times
behind my knotted desk
In quiet service to the stories I collect
Until it's time to close and go home for the night

Without the pirates
Without the sirens
Without the love notes in bottles at sea
Waiting for someone
Waiting for someone like me

Painted windows on the skyline
Sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone

Painted windows on the skyline
Sail me off this empty island
I'll be home before you know it
I'll be home before you know I'm gone
