Cocteau Twins Half-gifts Lyrics

Last updated: 06/01/2011 11:00:00 AM

It's an old game, my love
When you can't have me, you want me
Because you know that you're not risking anything

Intimacy is when we're in the same place at the same time
Dealing honestly with how we feel, and who we really are

That's what grown-ups do
That is mature thinking

Well I'm still a junkie for it
It takes me out of my aloneness
But this relationship cannot sustain itself

Intimacy is when we're in the same place at the same time
Dealing honestly with how we feel, and who we really are

That's what grown-ups do
That is mature thinking

I just have to know how to be in the process
Of creating things in a better way
And it hurts but it's a lie that I can't handle it
I still have a world of me-ness to fulfill
I still have a life, and it's a rich one even with mourning
Even with grief and sadness

I still care about this planet
I am still connected to nature and to my dreams for myself

I have my friends, my family.
I have myself
I still have me

Love this song | Reviewer: Andrew | 5/31/11

For years this song has haunted me. It is a rare song that combines honesty, sorrow, and at the same time belief in one self. One of the best songs on the planet. I too wish I could keep it for myself.

I love this song. It touches my heart and cradles my mind. A simple melody for great lyrics, very personal and very universal. It is sung like a confession. It takes courage to be so honest and it takes intelligence to be so real. You can feel the soul behind the voice. I adore this song and I would like to keep it for me only.
