Incubus Monuments and Melodies Lyrics

Last updated: 11/05/2013 05:21:56 AM

My hands are trembling
And my eyes are on fire
This house is crumbling
Left brain, left out, on the wire

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph

My past is perilous
But each scar I bear sings
Monuments to where I have been
And melodies to where I am going

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph

When will I see you again?
Still-life can only go so far
I need you in front of me
Saying my name
Saying to me...
"I want you the way you are
You, the way you are"

You make me happy
You magnify my better half
You make me certain
Though all I have today is your photograph
You make me happy

Magnificient song | Reviewer: BieberLover | 11/5/13

I Love the flow of his poetic mind. This song and Admiration makes me melt..

If I had the opportunity to have a response to this song, I would sing with this verse,

"...if you find my beloved,
what will you tell him?
Tell him I am faint with love."


Sad | Reviewer: Ty | 6/11/10

Hard to put into words how this song makes me feel. The haunting guitar with the vocals telling the tale of a relationship lost. It reminds me of my ex girlfriend and how the only memory I have is that photograph and how I wish she was in front of me saying she wants me just the way I am. Such a powerful song. Tear up every time I hear it. An amazing song by an amazing band.

great song! | Reviewer: Esther | 3/12/10

I love it, despite being soft but it catches my hart,its so romantic! and has that special sound of the guitar that gives it that feeling and mistery. Incubus can play all styles and being the best.

magnificent, and breath taking | Reviewer: Ana | 9/10/09

I first heard this song on the way to work, and i replayed it 3 or 4 times because it was such an amazing song to hear, and to hear it so heartfelt coming from Brandon was an even better treat. I LOVED the instrumentals were also so beautiful, Incubus is an amazing group of men! Thanks for the memories guys.

Exquisite! | Reviewer: Miria | 2/7/09

A perfectly exquisite song, backed up by beautiful instrumentals. Brandon's delivery of these poignant lyrics is so heartfelt. The words express what everyone wants in a lover: unconditional acceptance at the heart of the love. This song moves me tremendously every time I hear it.

great song & lyrics | Reviewer: Deborah | 9/22/07
