    Mother Mother - "Body Of Years"

    All the remains of a cadaver of days
    I keep hidden away, keep them there just in case
    I want to visit that place and blow the dust from the bones
    Off a body of years that I leave all alone
    Just a body of years

    See the skin disappears and the blood turns to stone
    In a body of years now a pile of bones
    Like a sheet of veneers
    Each a piece of my soul
    Like a body of years that I leave all alone
    It's just a body of years now a pile of bones, you know

    Old soul who falls down
    Can't stop tripping on these old roads I go down
    Get back up and get my...

    Foot in the door and my face on the page
    Make my mark in the world with a bat and a blade
    Just a body of work that you can't ever change
    Like a body of years that you take to your grave

    It's just a body of years
    That I leave all alone
    Just a body of years
    Now a pile of bones
    Like a sheet of veneers
    Each a piece of my soul

    Old soul who falls down
    Can't stop tripping on these
    Old roads I go down
    Get back up but I'm an
    Old soul who falls down
    Can't stop tripping on these
    Old roads

    It's just a body of years
    That I leave all alone
    Just a body of years
    Now a pile of bones
    Like a sheet of veneers
    Each a piece of my soul
    Like a pile of shit I can't seem to forget
    Just a body of years that I leave all alone

    Tell tale diary pages
    They unveil a ghost from the ages
    When bodies of years were breaking from all of the weight
    Of diary pages
    Tell tale diary pages
    Ah ah ah ah ah

    Same here. I can't figuire out if she wrote it or if it's song lyrics.

    But if you wrote it yourself Christina then it's really good, and you should post more of the things you write. :biggrin1:

    I'm pretty sure she wrote it herself, because she's awesome like that.

    But I do wonder if they're lyrics or not?

    Mother Mother is a Canadian group consisting of Molly and Ryan Guldemond and Ali Siadat.

    Here's a video for Mother Mother and Body of Years:

    Body of Years performed by Mother Mother

    Although Christinab may well be their lyricist/composer. Nice song.

    in my mind, when i read this i heard a slow acoustic song. i was kinda dissapointed when i heard it, but it was still good.


    edit:Dissapointed because i wanted it to be how i heard it lol.

    The song itself wasn't really for me, but I'm too stuck in the 40's/50's, so disregard that.

    I'm glad you took it as a compliment though, a well deserved one at that.
