Jenny Hval – Cemetery Of Splendour Lyrics

Jenny Hval Cemetery of Splendour Lyrics

When you call, when you call my name
Breath fills a shut-down space
Mouths were opened here once
There was a band on
Hear the buzzing of the empty halls
Or all rooms that are empty at any point in time, sigh
Ah

Once you played in empty bars
Performing for the beer tap and the pool tables
Nobody giving you their card
Because you have potential
Almost nothing interrupting ideas
Jittering in the jiggers
They sound like the way to another

Now you go to the afterlife
You’ve heard good things about it
But the embers are cooling
And the spirits are just names plus one

And you see tagged-over posters with faces out of frame
Boarded up windows that watch you walk away
All things abandoned are following your steps
Associating from space to emptiness

Tagged-over posters with faces out of frame
Boarded up windows that watch you walk away
All things abandoned are following your steps
Associating from space to emptiness
