Less To Give – Ilana Charnelle

From the collaborative live art project, Tensions: Curated Work (2015)

After ‘Drift’ by James O’Donoghue

 

It all starts with a goodbye

Staring the void in the eye

Might not realise at the time

Another part is gone

You felt it coming, the decay

Stem the break for one more day

But over time it wore away

And now you’re on your own

 

Like plastic breaking down

My half-life’s getting shorter now

Every time I break apart I’ve got a little less to give

The point of no return, crumble more after every burn

Every time it happens it’s a shorter life to live

Every time I break apart I’ve got a little less to give

 

Can’t rip you out that easily

When I let you go, you take some of me

So I lie beside you quietly and wish I was alone

Early days are always good

The joy of being understood

I said I will when I thought I never would

Life’s exhausting on your own

 

Like plastic breaking down

My half-life’s getting shorter now

Every time I break apart I’ve got a little less to give

The point of no return, crumble more after every burn

Every time it happens it’s a shorter life to live

Every time I break apart I’ve got a little less to give

 

I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine

Smile a little, breathe real deep

Say it till you don’t lose sleep

I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine

I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine, I’m fine

 

 

I’m at the point of no return, crumble more after every burn

Every time it happens it’s a shorter life to live

Every time I break apart I’ve got a little less to give
