Milkshakes

Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash
Oh, baby with your pretty face
Drop a tear in my wineglass
Look at those big eyes
See what you mean to me
Sweet-cakes and milkshakes
I'm a delusion angel
I'm a fantasy parade
I want you to know what I think
Don't want you to guess anymore
You have no idea where I came from
We have no idea where we're going
Lodged in life
Like branches in a river
Flowing downstream
Caught in the current
I carry you
You'll carry me
That's how it could be
Don't you know me?
Don't you know me by now?

- "Delusion Angel" by David Jewell, Before Sunrise

I like those lyrics, you're right - it's actually more like a poem than a song, where did you hear it? How's the project going, are things less stressful?

It's a poem from "Before Sunrise." A couple, Jesse and Celine, listens to this poet reciting his poet made from a given word, "milkshake"... I really like the poem. Celine did, too, but not Jesse.

He's a "crude, dumb, vulgar American who has no culture". LOL.
