about

Micropause is a bit of a rescue tune. I wrote it in a non-committal sort of way on the back end of 2005, borrowing very heavily from another song by Andrew Huang called YOUR HEART (released under the alias SPOKESMAN). Realising I was basically plagiarising (!), I adjusted the verse melody while adding a dramatic falsetto chorus and a more Caryl-esque bridge.

If you play the two songs together they actually sound quite pleasant. Try it.

And make sure you buy SPOKESWOMAN. It's a fairytale for the ears.

lyrics

Your eyes dismantle my heart
Until I'm left standing in a white room
Your touch shakes my foundations
Until I'm left crumbling in my silence

Could you hear me think?
Have you watched my dreams?
Did you touch this pain
In the micropause that we shared a thought?

You know nothing of this struggle
As I try to forget all of you

Looking for the little things
To let me know, to give me hope
Knowing in my heart of hearts
To let you go and give you up

Could you hear me think?
Have you watched my dreams?
Did you touch this pain
In the micropause that we shared a thought?
Don't make me believe
Messages received
That you touched this pain
For a micropause, for a micropause
You won't reach this pain
For a micropause, for a micropause
You won't reach this pain
