lyrics

Slipping
(Lyrics by Amber Bird, Music by Varnish)

I don’t understand your words anymore
How they slide past my ears and sink through the floor
I grasp them with fingers on nothing but air
If I read them I'd know how to keep myself here

Just a moment
I'll forget
Just a moment
And I'll slip
Just a moment
To lose grip
Just a moment
And I’ll slip

I don’t remember my face anymore
What colour my eyes when I met you before
I slide them unfocused and stare into space
If I don’t blink I'd know how to stick to this place

Just a moment
I'll forget
Just a moment
And I'll slip
Just a moment
To unhinge
Just a moment
And I'll slip

I envy the fragment who’ll slide in behind
If I'm shaking I'll know how to keep it all mine

I don’t inhabit this skin anymore
Who wears it tomorrow is who you’ll adore
I envy the fragment who’ll slide in behind
If I'm shaking I'll know how to keep it all mine

Just a moment
I'll forget
I'm scrabbling at ice
Slide life to life
Just a moment
And I'll slip

I don’t understand your words anymore
How they slide past my ears and sink through the floor
I grasp them with fingers on nothing but air
If I read them I'd know how to keep myself here

Just a moment
I'll forget
Just a moment
And I'll slip
Just a moment
To lose grip
Just a moment
And I’ll slip

about

Varnish Seattle, Washington

Varnish is steeped in the influence of dark, jangled pop via post-punk UK music that was dressed to kill and to do it fabulously, as well as "pre-punk" NYC bands that set the stage for the modern and alternative rock scenes that came next. Music where confusion becomes clarity and the extremes of human emotion are separated by a precariously thin tightrope, all backlit by a beautiful dissonance. ... more
