Timelapse Love

Timelapse Love
George Kelly

(4 bars intro)

Through binoculars or a telescope, you are far away but you seem so close. I am staring up into the nighttime sky at your face looking down from on high. I'm always hitting rewind on our timelapse love, captured on camera with the whole wide world watching on a monitor. I'm always hitting rewind!

I cannot recall when I first zoomed in on your comet eyes or unearthly skin. I am so suffused with astonishment. You appear to me to be heaven-sent. I'm always hitting rewind on our timelapse love, captured on camera with the whole wide world watching on a monitor. I'm always hitting rewind!

(16 bars)

I'm always hitting rewind on a crazy dream only the other night: we were bathing together under the cool moonlight, and the universe accelerated at a blissful clip until I came awake to discover that you'd given me the slip. I'm always hitting rewind on our timelapse love, captured on camera with the whole wide world watching on a monitor. I'm always hitting rewind!

(16 bars reprise)

  1. [this is good] I’m digging this, George. The tempo shifting is perfect.

    My only recommendation is to re-approach the opening line of the third verse. “…[C]razy dream only the other night” reads and sounds slightly awkward in construction, especially with how well the rest of the lyrics flow.

    Only you could drop “suffused” into a song like it ain’t no thang.

  2. [this is good] George, I dig this. I wanna replay it while I’m journaling in the coffeehouse tomorrow. I hope it’s raining like it was this morning. Sweet!
