lyrics

A Matter Of Love

I could hide here in the warm folds of the distance
I could survive here in the spaces between two instants
There’s no one else here, no more laws here in the numb
There’s just one pulse here, no applause here
For the deaf and the definitely dumb

I guess I never left a trail back home
I’m never coming back to you
But girl, it’s not a matter of love

I didn’t stroll here, I didn’t wander to the dark
I was pushed here by the soft hands of a love
Now I must stay here with this armour around my heart
Please don’t come here, don’t invade me
You’ll find the end is waiting at the start

I guess I never left a trail back home
I’m never coming back to you
But girl, it’s not a matter of love

I could drown here in the thunder of a breath
Lightning strikes here on the same place on my chest
And it’ll crack down until there’s simply nothing left
But I survived you, so this torture
Is something that I’ll readily accept

I guess I never left a trail back home
I’m never coming back to you
But girl, it’s not a matter of love

A matter of love

A prolific artist, Butcher has recorded over a 100 tracks and will cap off a decade of disturbing dirge by releasing a compilation of demos on Bandcamp. It promises to be as handsome as the man himself. He may have written his own bio. ... more
