Welcome Home - Radical Face

I first heard this song on a Nikon commercial and I liked it.

I searched for it and found it on YouTube and I have been listening to it ever since. There is something about the melody that I find  so very moving and beautiful. It makes me long for something that I can not express in words.



 

Sleep don't visit,
so I choke on sun
And the days blur into one
And the backs of my eyes hum with things I've never done
Sheets are swaying from an old clothesline
Like a row of captured ghosts over old dead grass
Was never much but we made the most
Welcome home
Ships are launching from my chest
Some have names but most do not
If you find one, please let me know what piece I've lost
Peel the scars from off my back I don't need them anymore
You can throw them out or keep them in your mason jars
I've come home
All my nightmares escaped my head
Bar the door, please don't let them in
You were never supposed to leave
Now my head's splitting at the seams
And I don't know if I can
Here, beneath my lungs, I feel your thumbs press into my skin again

Interesting where people find their favourite songs from, is it not?

It really is, isn't it?

It really is.
