Here is the song lyric of Okkervil River : and you can also sing and watch music video
Hot breath, rough skin, warm laughs and smiling, the loveliest words
whispered and meant - you like all these things. But, though you like all
these things, you love a stone. You love a stone, because it’s smooth and
it’s cold. And you’d love most to be told that it’s all your own. You love
white veins, you love hard grey, the heaviest weight, the clumsiest shape,
the earthiest smell, the hollowest tone - you love a stone. And I’m found
too fast, called too fond of flames, and then I’m phoning my friends, and
then I’m shouldering the blame, while you’re picking pebbles out of the
drain, miles ago. You’re out singing songs, and I’m down shouting names at
the flickerless screen, going fucking insane. Am I losing my cool,
overstating my case? Well, baby, what can I say? You know I never claimed
that I was a stone. And you love a stone. You love white veins, you love
hard grey, the heaviest weight, the clumsiest shape, the earthiest smell,
the hollowest tone - you love a stone. You love a stone, because it’s dark,
and it’s old, and if it could start being alive you’d stop living alone.
And I think I believe that, if stones could dream, they’d dream of being
laid side-by-side, piece-by-piece, and turned into a castle for some
towering queen they’re unable to know. And when that queen’s daughter came
of age, I think she’d be lovely and stubborn and brave, and suitors would
journey from kingdoms away to make themselves known. And I think that I
know the bitter dismay of a lover who brought fresh bouquets every day when
she turned him away to remember some knave who once gave just one rose, one
day, years ago...
