modern ink mag was an online lifestyle publication that placed an emphasis on uncovering, highlighting and exposing the clever, adventurous, artistic and eclectic side of life.
our impression feature was unique to modern ink mag as we highlighted lyrics by artists through our own creative interpretation. little talks, by of monsters and men, continues to inspire me and will always hold a special place in my heart.
i don’t like walking around this old and empty house so hold my hand, i’ll walk with you my dear. the stairs creak as i sleep it’s keeping me awake, it’s the house telling you to close your eyes.
and some days i can’t even trust myself, it’s killing me to see you this way. ’cause though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore.
there’s an old voice in my head that’s holding me back, well tell her that i miss our little talks. soon it will be over and buried in our past, we used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love.
some days i don’t know if i am wrong or right, your mind is playing tricks on your my dear. ’cause though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore.
you’re gone, gone, gone away, i watched you disappear all that’s left is the ghost of you. now we’re torn, torn, torn apart, there’s nothing we can do, just let me go, we’ll meet again soon.
now wait, wait, wait for me, please hang around i’ll see you when i fall asleep.
don’t listen to the words i say, the screams all sound the same. though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore
