about

It has always fascinated me how some of the most quotidian events or details could hold so much weight in hindsight. The colour of a dress, the muskiness of a certain cologne, the curling of lips mid-kiss. The imagery of Anaphora is cemented in watching a drunk couple wade into the ocean while my girlfriend at the time and I were sitting on a beachside log. I didn't think much about it at the time, but when our relationship fell through, I can't help but to see that couple as some sort of poetic foreshadowing.

lyrics

And I remember the dress you wore
It was blue as the shore and the sky I adore
Do you remember it?
Do you remember us?

And I remember where we sat on the beach
In perfect view of two lovers consummated by the sea
Do you remember them?
Do you remember us?

And I remember the scent of your skin
While kissing every single inch of the heaven above your chin
Do you remember me?
Do you remember us?

And I remember your eyes like fire
Burning my charcoal soul with a heart of a liar
Do you remember me?
Do you remember us?

And I remember the countless nights I spent
On the edge of my bed with my head in my hands
Believing that I caused everything to fall apart

And I remember swearing if you did this to me
I would immortalize you the best way I could
Do you remember me?
Do you remember us?

Do you remember us?
