Bon Iver - Holocene (Official Music Video)

The Quiet World..

In an effort to get people to look
into each other’s eyes more,
and also to appease the mutes,
the government has decided
to allot each person exactly one hundred
and sixty-seven words, per day.

When the phone rings, I put it to my ear

without saying hello. In the restaurant
I point at chicken noodle soup.
I am adjusting well to the new way.

Late at night, I call my long distance lover,

proudly say I only used fifty-nine today.
I saved the rest for you.

When she doesn’t respond,

I know she’s used up all her words,
so I slowly whisper I love you
thirty-two and a third times.
After that, we just sit on the line
and listen to each other breathe.

Once Upon A Time..

“Once upon a time there was a boy. 
He lived in a village that no longer exists, in a house that no longer exists, on the edge of a field that no longer exists, where everything was discovered and everything was possible. 
A stick could be a sword. 
A pebble could be a diamond. 
A tree a castle. 

Once upon a time there was a boy who lived in a house across the field from a girl who no longer exists.
They made up a thousand games. 
She was Queen and he was King. 
In the autumn light, her hair shone like a crown. 
They collected the world in small handfuls. 
When the sky grew dark they parted with leaves in their hair. 

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.”
