July 2017 Prompt

I have long loved the dark and beautiful song Bury My Lovely written by Julie Flanders and Emil Adler and Performed by October Project. This haunting song and the music video that accompanies it seems to hint at a story. I wondered what that story might be.

To see the video of October Project, featuring the stunning voice of Mary Fahl, click this image:

 

 

The Lyrics, as taken from Julie Flanders Ideasmyth site are:

Bury My Lovely
(Julie Flanders / Emil Adler)

Cover the mirror
Hide in your dreams
Forget what they told you
Forget what it means

A picture worth a thousand lies
The memory and the mirror
Nothing but what came before
Nothing but a closing door

A picture worth a thousand lies
A thousand words
A thousand eyes

Bury my lovely
Hide in your room
Bury my lovely
Forget me soon
Forget me
Forget me now
Forget me not

Cover the madness
Cover the fear
No one will ever
Know you were here

A figure in the hallway light
Returning like a ghost
Something that was left behind
Something in a child’s mind

A picture worth a thousand lies
A thousand words
A thousand eyes

Bury my lovely
Hide in your room
Bury my lovely
Forget me soon
Forget me
Forget me now
Forget me not

Bury my lovely
Bury the lies
Bury me under
A thousand goodbyes

A shadow from another time
Is waiting in the night
Something happened long ago
Something that will not let go

Bury my lovely
Hide in your room
Bury my lovely
Forget me soon
Forget me
Forget me now
Forget me not
