Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - The End
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ upcoming album would have to be my most anticipated release for 2012. They have made nothing but memorable, passionate music since they began working together.
I won’t go on too long about this song, but I thought it was an appropriate track to finish the year off with. In the midst of your partying, chilling, or whatever you end up doing, spare a thought for this song and the gorgeous piano (which is a sample of ‘Another World’ by Antony and the Johnsons.
2012 will not be the end, but when you listen to this song, it almost seems like it. Enjoy and I’ll see you in 2012.
Came in together, but you held me..
The process walking right through that door, at the entry.
I can’t seem to remember, the lights were so bright,
And the disco ball blurred in the turn of that night.
But it was perfect, I was told the tux was starched and all.
Grabbed the glass of punch, nervousness, structured by that wall.
Arms folded, myself, I didn’t know yet.
Until you came over, stood by me, you posted.
You put your hand out like I was stranded.
Tried to pull me on that dance floor, I stepped backwards.
See I wasn’t ready yet, but you were my medicine..
Showed me that trust through that love that you held me with.
our backs against the wall as the DJ would spin
The soundtrack had changed as he played that mix…
Our lives flashed in front of us, just a glimpse,
We were together and experience this..
You finally pulled me up, I didn’t want to..
But you filled me up, from the bottom of my heart.
And as we walked through that gymnasium that I’d been watching,
Feeling like my chest would explode from my heartbeat.
To the middle of the floor I almost panicked,
You put your hand out and I fearfully grabbed it.
The most beautiful thing that I’d seen on this planet,
She laughed ‘cause you could tell that I didn’t know how to dance yet..
We started moving and I, didn’t know what I was doing.
“don’t you love music it’s such a gift and I’ll give it to ya, but you gotta use it”
I strayed, you brought me back in..
Trying to sneak a flask outside of that gym.
She said “You don’t need that, look within.”
She hugged me, looked into my eyes, she gave me a kiss
And she said, “I can’t help you, if you don’t let me.
You’re here to live just be, don’t forget me.
The end of this dance you don’t want to regret me, live..
‘Cause tonight you’ll all be set free”
“Last dance!” the Dj yelled.
Looked into her eyes and I could see myself..
Slow motion, frozen, toast to this moment.
Like there is no morning, like there is no morning.
No emotions, you on my shoulder, me lead and you follow,
As we circle the floor like the globe through this infinite mass..
Makes us seem so small,
With you in my hand like the skyline holds the stars.
Not letting go, but I can’t hold on
Fading through my fingertips, watching us fall..
I try to catch you with my arms
I would never take you for granted when I had you in my palms.
To all I ever wanted, please play my song.
And put the record to the needle, don’t ever touch that off switch.
You are perfect, forget that prom dress.
My God, seconds away from God, yes.
Somebody turned the heat on in this party,
Or we’re becoming one because I’m melting into your body..
one being, heart beating, universe falling.
The ground split right between us and that concrete..
Separated my love, I could hear her calling.
Separated, but I could hear her calling.
Goodbye forever, never see you again
