Sunday Samples 277 (very late)

May 29, 2012

Somehow this didn’t go up as scheduled over a week ago, which I just noticed now. WordPress has been acting funny…

Anyway, as I was riding the Metro back from about 26 miles of biking, I could actually feel my skin drying out, leaving the salt that precipitated out of my sweat. This, of course, reminded me of “Salt”, by Hybrid.

Ooooh…

Burn in the distance,
I can see the shape–it won’t be long ’til you taste salt with me
I heard the wind whisper something to my mind

I feel feverish a little, it starts beneath my skin
It’s the moment before when something stops and something begins, I can taste salt on your skin

I have found another place to play
And slowly and steadily, I am falling away

And so I’m finding I’m getting the right things
And finally you are losing your head
I always wanted to taste the bittersweet and you’re swept away.

Ooooh…

Birds and bees, torment me and use my shape
On other matters bring me air to breathe and let me feel salt in my hair

And I feel feverish, a little it starts beneath my skin
It’s the moment where the fear digs in… Yeah, I can taste salt on your skin

You have found a better place to play
And slowly and steadily we are, falling away

And I’m finding I’m getting the right things
And finally you are losing your head
You always wanted to the taste the bittersweet and you’re swept away

Oh, I will be rolled over and over
You’re getting pulled down underwater
And as the bittersweet digs in, I can taste salt on your skin.

Ooooh…

I can taste salt on your skin! (repeat four times)
