Pretty Poetry #5

You know which films had great soundtracks? The Twilight Saga. Outstanding song choices every time. Say what you want about the story, but this is an area where they did a really great job. For Pretty Poetry #5, I have chosen song lyrics that were featured on the Breaking Dawn Part 1 soundtrack. I saw a SKAM post on Tumblr with these lyrics, I had no idea they were featured on Breaking Dawn’s soundtrack, but I’m somehow not surprised. The artist is Sleeping at Last and the song is called Turning Page. Give it a listen and pay attention to the lyrics, they’re pretty great.

I’ve waited a hundred years
But I’d wait a million more for you
Nothing prepared me for
What the privilege of being yours would do

If I had only felt the warmth within your touch
If I had only seen how you smile when you blush
Or how you curl your lip when you concentrate enough
Well I would have known
What I was living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Your love is my turning page
Where only the sweetest words remain
Every kiss is a cursive line
Every touch is a redefining phrase

I surrender who I’ve been for who you are
For nothing makes me stronger than your fragile heart
If I had only felt how it feels to be yours
Well I would have known
What I’ve been living for all along
What I’ve been living for

Though we’re tethered to the story we must tell
When I saw you, well I knew we’d tell it well
With a whisper, we will tame the vicious seas
Like a feather bringing kingdoms to their knees

What do you think?
