From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea

November 5, 2010

Photography by Melissa Lukenbaugh

F21 Sweatshirt, Cross Necklace & Tights, Thrifted Skirt, Sam Extance Necklace, Bracelet & Ring from Mexico, Alaia inspired Booties, Dolly & Angel “Lindsey Satchel” for Spring 2011


This was one of those outfits that just sort of came together 5 minutes before I went to do the photoshoot with Missy.  It was a good thing too because I was extremely emotional and sad for some reason that day.  I couldn’t even force myself to smile for any of the shots…but somehow they came out very nice.  Sometimes life is overwhelming and probably 362 days of the year it’s not a problem for me…but this day was different.  I was sad for no particular reason.  The Cure’s “Wish” is one of my all time favorite albums ever.  I could never get tired of this album in a million years.  This song in particular is also one of my favorites and it’s heart wrenching to me and it’s filled with melancholy which is exactly how I felt.  If you haven’t heard this before, I suggest you stop what you’re doing and listen.  I have so many memories from my youth tied to this song and that actually makes me smile.  (sorry this is such a debbie downer post, I feel much better now! 🙂

From the Edge of the Deep Green Sea:

every time we do this
i fall for her
wave after wave after wave
it’s all for her
i know this can’t be wrong i say
(and i’ll lie to keep her happy)
as long as i know that you know
that today i belong
right here with you
right here with you…

and so we watch the sun come up
from the edge of the deep green sea
and she listens like her head’s on fire
like she wants to believe in me
so i try
put your hands in the sky
we’ll be here forever
and we’ll never say goodbye…

i’ve never been so
colourfully-see-through-head before
i’ve never been so
and all i want is to keep it like this
you and me alone
a secret kiss
and don’t go home
don’t go away
don’t let this end
please stay
not just for today

never never never never never let me go she says
hold me like this for a hundred thousand million days
but suddenly she slows
and looks down at my breaking face
why do you cry what did i say
but it’s just rain i smile
brushing my tears away…

i wish i could just stop
i know another moment will break my heart
too many tears
too many times
too many years i’ve cried over you

how much more can we use it up
drink it dry
take this drug
looking for something forever gone
but something
we will always want

why why why are you letting me go she says
i feel you pulling back
i feel you changing shape…
and just as i’m breaking free
she hangs herself in front of me
slips her dress like a flag to the floor
and hands in the sky
surrenders it all…

i whish i could just stop
i know another moment will break my heart
too many tears
too many times
too many years i’ve cried for you
it’s always the same
wake up in the rain
head in pain
hung in shame
a different name
same old game
love in vain
and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles
away from home again…
