Build a Home, Breathe

Build a Home, Breathe

I love music, photography, and video and this short film inspires me to create.

Cinematic Orchestra “To Build a Home/Breathe” Dir Up The Resolution from Up The Resolution on Vimeo.

To Build a Home

There is a house built out of stone
Wooden floors, walls and window sills
Tables and chairs worn by all of the dust
This is a place where I don’t feel alone
This is a place where I feel at home

‘Cause, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust

Out in the garden where we planted the seeds
There is a tree as old as me
Branches were sewn by the color of green
Ground had arose and passed it’s knees

By the cracks of the skin I climbed to the top
I climbed the tree to see the world
When the gusts came around to blow me down
I held on as tightly as you held onto me
I held on as tightly as you held onto me

And, I built a home
For you
For me

Until it disappeared
From me
From you

And now, it’s time to leave and turn to dust…


Breathe

Oh, that song is singing
Singing in to me
Over everything
I used to be

Oh, that song is singing
Singing into me

Slow and sweet
It carries me
Carries me
Out to sea
And swallows me
Into the deep
And comforts me
And comforts me

Oh that weight is lifting
Lifting on me
It carries me
Out to the sea
And swallows me
And swallows me
And swallows me

Into the deep
And comforts me
And comforts me
In, into the deep
And comforts me
And comforts me
And comforts me

Breathe up to me
Breathe up into me
Breathe out through me
Breathe into me
Oh breathe out through
Through me
Why don’t you breathe in
Breathe into me
And breathe out
Through me
