The love I felt for you is like a frozen photograph [Circuit Breaker]

[CIrcuit Breaker]

A day ago — an hour ago — he would have given up anything for her. He would have quit his job, broke up his band, dropped out of school, given away his dog… ok, not the dog. But we’re talking highest mountain stuff, here.

And yet now here he was staring at her carpet between the toes of his boots, thinking, I don’t feel anything.

And he didn’t. Or, maybe, really, what he felt was nothing. There seemed to be a whole lot of nothing smack in the middle of his life, a life that only a few hours ago had seemed troubled but full, but now seemed on the verge of imploding.

Circuit Breaker

Honey there’s a circuit breaker
deep inside my heart
late last nite I felt the whole thing blow
I felt all my feelings stop

Isn’t it amazing, doll
how fast it all can change
the twitch of a tiny hand
and today is yesterday

The love l felt for you
was like a frozen photograph
where you watch the ghosts appear
baby, step into the past

Isn’t it amazing, doll…

Wasnt there forever
at least for a little while
wasnt there a time for us
too bad that’s out of style

Isn’t it amazing, doll
how fast it all can change
the twitch of a tiny hand
and today is yesterday
