What Is It About?

Lyrics (By Google Search)

I lie in an early bed, thinking late thoughts
waiting for the black to replace my blue
I do not struggle in your web because it was my aim
to get caught
But daddy longlegs, I feel that I’m finally growing
of waiting to be consumed by you
Give me the first taste
Let it begin — heaven cannot wait forever
Darling, just start the chase — I’ll let you win
but you must make the endeavor
Oh, your love, give me a heart contusion
Adagio breezes fill my skin with sudden red
Your hungry flirt borders intrusion
I’m building memories on things we have not said
Full is not heavy as empty, not nearly, my love
Not nearly, my love, not nearly
Give me the first taste
Let it begin — heaven cannot wait forever
Darling, just start the chase — I’ll let you win
but you must make the endeavor

My Thoughts

Somehow, this song was missing from my digital music collection.

I have the original CD for this and most or all of the other songs from this music album.

I am not sure how it magically disappeared from my digital music collection because it was among my favorite songs on this album.

Furthermore, I had not heard this song in years, and it came to my mind today.

When I was looking through my music collection trying to find it, I noticed that it was missing and that is why I have not heard it in so long.

This was possibly the most upbeat song from the album Tidal, the music video for it is pretty rare, and oddly there are no official versions of it on YouTube.

Fortunately, a few YouTubers have uploaded unofficial, lower quality versions of it.

I have now re-added this song to my digital music collection.

The end,
