Ladytron “Melting Ice”

As she skated the rink
In the blink of an eye
I negated to breathe
Any more than a sigh
The storm clouds perceived were unthinkably mild
Overseen by a child inexplicably wild
As she skated the rink
To the steepest toe pick
I discerned the vaguest whisper of a smile

I glanced all about me
In state of confusion
Elated mistaking my favourite illusion
Unless by the farthest stretch of my imagination
She was facing me with every kiss when her lips duly blew them
I felt unseen fusion of fear and captivation
Some way beyond my keen articulation
As she skated the rink
In the blink of an eye
My dreams received the sweetest themed narration

Angel eyes
And graceful lines
Across the ice
Her name she signed
Inflamed I discerned the vaguest whisper of a smile
Unchanging was its flicker
Not a glimmer of denial
Life had paraded so many a trial
As I downwardly spiralled
Undetected
Angel eyes
And graceful lines
Across the ice
Her name she signed
So how could I then fail to be affected

Her figure of eight
Was unweighted and freighted the brave air about her
In faith celebrated
I waited impatiently
Like a kid basically
Vacantly gazing skybound
Lost in a melody
Found within reverie
Ever togetherly
Tenderly crowned
As she skated the rink
In the blink of an eye
My eyes dressed the sight of resound
As we gleaned the adulation of the crowd

    1. I love that you downloaded it Mouse. Ladytron are my favourite band and Melting Ice is one of my all-time personal darlings of theirs. They are well worth exploring and have several albums available, the best of which are Velocifero and Gravity The Seducer. Another song they did which always gives me chills is called Tomorrow. 💙

      1. The sound of that particular song is exactly what I enjoy so can’t wait to explore and pilfer more 🤩 Haha their Tomorrow will certainly be different than the song of same name by Sandie Shaw 😅
