Friday Five :: Songs about hands

Eyes, mouths and hands have always been my favorite features in people. They are the things I notice first, the points of attraction, the parts of a body I am forever drawn to, and fascinated by.

You see him and you die — that is, inside you — and have to go on living as a ghost.” ~ Long Day’s Journey Into Night  by Eugene O’Neill Into Dust :: Mazzy Star “I could possibly be fading, or have something more to gain.
