I could not get Whisper by A Fine Frenzy out of my head because it’s the song used at the end of House’s last episode. Yup, House again. I’ve heard the song before but after watching the episode, I felt it more, and as of late, it’s not solely because of the show. It’s such a beautiful piece. The title of this post was taken from it.
Running the race / Like a mouse in a cage / Getting nowhere but I’m trying
Forging ahead / But I’m stuck in the bed / That I made so I’m lying
But if you keep real close / Yeah, you stay real close / I will reach you
I’m down to a whisper / In a daydream on a hill / Shut down to a whisper /Can you hear me still?
Don’t know what to do anymore / I’ve lost the only love worth fighting for
I’ll drown in my tears, don’t they see? /That would show you, that would make you hurt like me
All the same / I don’t want mudslinging games
It’s such a shame /To let you walk away
Is there a chance? / A fragment of light at the end of the tunnel? /A reason to fight?
Is there a chance you may change your mind? /Or are we ashes and wine?
Ah, all the thoughts I associated with this song before. It’s crazy. The Judith kind of crazy.
There was also a time when I was so into Almost Lover, after my friend Pay sent me its music video and asked me to listen to it over and over, hoping to help me get over, you know, it. It worked, though not instantly, but a few months after she asked me to, hehe.
I never want to see you unhappy / I thought you’d want the same for me
Goodbye, my almost lover /Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I’m trying not to think about you / Can’t you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance / My back is turned on you
I should’ve known you’d bring me heartache / Almost lovers always do
If you know me well, you would know that I like relating myself to any song that catches my fancy. I’m always a lyrics-before-melody kind of person. At this point, I’m just going to smile at the parallels. Life’s fun if lived this way. Try it.
