All I had hoped for
I kept inside your car
The rabbit in the barn
Most of all I wait

  • I think I just found perfection in this world
  • from the series "sufjan plays lana del rey"
  • this song deserves way more love
  • Gorgeous.
  • You touched me inside of my cage / Beneath my shirt your hands embraced me - some of my favorite lyrics ever
  • Blood in the meadowlark
  • That falsetto kills me.
  • WOW
  • I crawl inside of this and get cozy as fuck.
