Sufjan Stevens - Futile Devices

English

Futile Devices

It's been a long, long time
Since I've memorized your face
It's been four hours now
Since I've wandered through your place
And when I sleep on your couch
I feel very safe
And when you bring the blankets
I cover up my face
 
I do
Love you
I do
Love you
 
And when you play guitar
I listen to the strings buzz
The metal vibrates underneath your fingers
And when you croquet
I feel mesmerized and proud
 
And I would say I love you
But saying it out loud is hard
So I won't say it at all
And I won't stay very long
 
But you are life I needed all along
I think of you as my brother
Although that sounds dumb
And words are futile devices
