One hand all around and I can feel the aroma of essence/
'Where have you been? My love has failed and in my absence back again'/

When you make a story out of something obscure, back to normality it goes/
'And in this time and place, where do you plan to run to forever?'/

If forever were a place, I'd say I'd hate to be living/
'When you find Love, be sure to show it here. Prove the lovely life, my dear'/

If I were certain, no abyss would I be, but as for now.../
'Take the fears and lay them elsewhere, Sundlandic kisses loosen the body'/

And am I so uptight? Having Youth and Spring?/
'Take your heavy head and float with me...'/

You talk too elegant, whereas I talk too subtle/
'Where will you be if you can never find the just right?'

Oh, to be in midnight I would want to fly. Pity for losing my sight.

The author's comments:
Semi-dialogue between a conversation and a man's thoughts.

I give credit to Of Montreal for their coined term "Sunlandic kisses."
