Futile Devices (Acoustic) by Sufjan Stevens

It's been a long, long time
Since I've memorized your face

It's been four hours now
Since I've wandered through your place

And when I sleep on your couch
I feel very safe

And when you bring the blankets
I cover up my face

I do

Love you

I do...

Love you

And when you play guitar
I listen to the strings buzz

The metal vibrates underneath your fingers

And when you crochet
I feel mesmerized and proud

And I would say I love you
But saying it out loud is hard
So I won't say it at all

And I won't stay very long

But you are life I needed all along
I think of you as my brother
Although that sounds dumb
And words are futile devices
