03. Ask Me Now

The Great Depression
by Blindside



 

And so one morning just before dawn You came
Out of the forest towards my window
With a smile in Your hand
As the moist air up to Your knees started swirling like smoke
I saw Your lips move
Asking: Did you lose something
I stood glued to the window

Emotions running through my vein
How I know a word I canít explain

I think Iíve known you all along
Just lost Your face in the crowd for awhile
I think I have been holding my breath all my life
Can I exhale and go into exile
Ask me now and Iíll run away with You

And so with the dawn Youíve come
Eye to eye with nothing in between but this fragile glass
Your lips move again
I try but I canít detect the vibrations in the air
How Iíve longed to inhale Your breath
Itís still early and I see your words getting caught
In the window slowly turning into frost

I see Your hand move and I canít detain
Scraping down a word I canít explain

I think Iíve known you all along
Just lost Your face in the crowd for awhile
I think I have been holding my breath all my life
Can I exhale and go into exile
Ask me now and Iíll run away with You

Behind the Song:
'There are parts of this record that are very broad in view. There are also parts that are very personal that focus on the relationships that help to connect us.' - Christian Lindskog (Blindside)
