A Beautiful Song

Because I don’t know what I’m doing with my life, I joined Tumblr today. I can almost swear that that blog is not going to be half as interesting as this so I shall not post the link. But I found this beautiful song today.

It’s called “Magnificent” by Paola Bennett, and it’s a fanart song about Doctor Who companion Amy Pond. It’s heartbreaking and beautiful and stellar.

i have seen worlds born in my head
hanging on silver threads
for that, they cry “crazy”

i’m burning up under a small-town sun
but give me the chance to run
the skies will obey me

hitched a ride on a madman’s heart
i’ve never been out so far
the cosmos are beckoning

and there is a beast round every door
but what else is courage for?
each step is a reckoning

so don’t you promise 
unless you swear on it
there is no coming home from losing innocence

but in my hair are comets
i’ve never felt so honest
never mind all the times they’ve said i don’t make sense
because the stars have christened me “magnificent”

i carry my own guns for a fight
but that little girl poised for flight
each time i still bring her

but she’s taught me not to trust so hard
because patience just gives you scars;
they burn and they linger

so don’t you promise 
unless you swear on it
there is no coming home from losing innocence

but in my hair are comets
i’ve never felt so honest
never mind all the times they’ve said i don’t make sense
because the stars have christened me “magnificent”

falling through cracks to older times
planets along my spine
there’s so much i want to keep

pirate ships and flying whales
out of some fairytale
they’re all still there in my sleep…

so i will promise
to sometimes think upon it
but i don’t need daydreams in the present tense

i still look for comets
but if i’m being honest,
this last bow, the story now, seems to make perfect sense
i was then and i am still magnificent

I am getting chills right now, and I love it so so so much. Hitched a ride on a madman’s heart – never mind all the times they’ve said I don’t make sense. Ahhhh. It is so beautiful. Thank you, Paola Bennett, for this work of art.
