follow blind.
heavy eyes, hold position.
You’re right on time.
it was a lucky prediction

move on, move on.
It’s like the clock is pacing
the break of dawn, and our hearts are racing.
move on, move on...
there's nothing changing.

don't undermine,
my new resolution.
just to find,
A different light, a new direction.

move on, move one.
now the record's skipping,
i won't forget, i won't forget
the way you said move on,
move on, there's no point in waiting.

A New Feeling

"Even now, all possible feelings do not yet exist, there are still those that lie beyond our capacity and our imagination. From time to time, when a piece of music no one has ever written or a painting no one has ever painted, or something else impossible to predict, fathom or yet describe takes place, a new feeling enters the world. And then, for the millionth time in the history of feeling, the heart surges and absorbs the impact."

- Nicole Krauss
