Unreleased Song from upcoming Monica Pasqual Album

Lyrics

I’m gonna write it as it comes, I’m gonna stop it when I have to,
When there’s nothing more to say
But right now you’re all around me, slant of sun on the floor, smell of coffee, and all I cannot throw away
You keep breaking down my walls
Walking through these halls
Like you still own me

I can recall the night I met you, when I didn’t think I would get you, I watched you from the stage
And the time you stood behind me, admiring a painting, and asked if you could stay
You started breaking down my walls
Walking through my halls
Like you could own me
Breaking down my walls so you could own me

It was October my bed in the sun-porch
We lay together our hands traced the contours
Our faces we couldn’t see
But every bone, every breath felt familiar,
Locked as we were to the future
There was no time for sleep
I felt you breaking down my walls
Walking through my halls
Like you would own me

Some days I’m like a leaf that’s fallen far from home
Longing and searching for the branch where I am known
Some days are more like claws, I long to leave what was
The scrape of memories , the painful scar of love
