Lightnining Strikes [Mar. 22nd, 2011|04:21 am]
Previous Entry Share Next Entry


Life on telephones/Love on open roads
Into great unknowns I stumble brightly
Indigo/breathless yet
I’ll link to your regret
Sunflowers as teachers pets/Bent from lightning
I’ll bet/I’ll bend for you
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Eastern days I’m unfraid/cause love to me is such a game
that I believe I can’t embrace/the dreams of lovers
Shadows give your light to me
Shadows give your light to me

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

Zen baby/lightning strikes
the same heart/but never twice
Zen baby/we’ve got to fight
what’s real and what becomes the night

In the ways the city pours itself out
You can make this happen
Beyond your doubt
You can make this happen all right now

How to put this nicely and supportively, if you might even read it. I have been thinking about this as it has been happening. I feel like someone told you that your old singing voice was ineffectual and incorrect and inappropriate.

Billy, honestly, trying to mold your emotions into precise and pretty sounds just doesn't work. Your heart is getting trapped in the filter. I don't suggest you try to sing like you used to for ME. You don't owe me anything, and never have. I have always thought if I got to know you I would have your back, be a true friend. As that friend, let me implore you to start trusting your heart, your voice, your path again. I know you might not understand what I am saying because of how hard it is to trust people. I really understand. So just take care of yourself, if you do anything.

You've still got every bit of talent, explosions, and love that you always did. All of it. Even the stuff that brought Mellon Collie to the charts and Siamese to the masses. But those were only symptoms of your true power and you know it. This isn't about recapturing something you've lost. You just need to let yourself be what you are. I wish you whatever you want to make you happy.

Your Friend,
William

William, your comment reads rudely. I'm not sure what you're trying to say, but it reads rudely.

That's ok. It wasn't rude.

I think it's great. I like the effect of the synths.

Dont get me wrong I fell in love with Billy and all that he represented (in the past) but I think he should abandon rock altogether and do something all electronic, ambient and trip hoppy but with his voice over it, that'd be rad and I think I would like it more during *these* times.
