Bat For Lashes – Pearl’s Dream

Tick. Tock. There was a countdown. Seconds before the ominous twenty-ten, he was actually feeling blue. Another one was upon him.  Big expectations. Mightier disappointments. As he strolled down the misty streets of an intoxicated city, the people surrounding him were violent and lost. At home he lit up a candle. Sipped on homemade Irish cream. And wished for a year full of actuals. So the disappointments were put on the back burner.
Then he fell into a big sleep.
