Thaw

You Ripped my heart from my chest
And fashioned a fine pair of slippers
So with each step you tread on me
So tread lightly please
That penny jar won’t get you far
But you can hitch a ride with me
How could I know you, how could I not
You’re like something I forgot
Like a twist in the plot (its got me tied up in knots)

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

The forecast called for a drop of rain
and then the flood came
The man I was is gone
Well good riddance and so long
Woman Woman won’t you help me please
You look through me with an ease
Tell me what do you see

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

All this running never taught us what we’re worth
So press me down between your body and the earth
Till it hurts, till it hurts no more, no more

Life ain’t all that we thought it’d be
I ain’t no prince but you can be my queen
I suffer well life’s made sure of that
and I may lose my cool but I get it back
The thaw of the winter is the bloom of the spring
Its amazing what good things a bad thing can bring

House For Two

We often hope that through the passing of time our relationships will stand true. That no matter what challenges befall us, we’ll be able to come through on the other end, hand in hand.

I’ve watched people stay together despite themselves, and spread apart when they ought to fight for each other. Yet I still find it within me to hope beyond hope that my invested love will carry on throughout my life.

This song is a nod towards the unseeable future. A vow to light a beacon in the distance that we can both return to no matter what storms push us apart.

Lyrics:

Say you’ll be mine, wherever this road takes us
When the house is for sale, and the kids are all grown
Say you’ll be mine, I’m not sure if I’ll believe you
But every little bit helps, if it all goes to hell

If suddenly I’m cynical, or critical of you
Thats not the version of me I wanna be
I just wanna show you how my heart has grown

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you

Say I am yours unconditionally
And we’ll learn what that means
Probably the hard way
So I am yours for better or for worse
We’re scared that things will change,
Or that they’ll always stay the same

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you

You’re not my mother you’re not my child nor my prize
You’re just a little bit of the good life
All we are is all we dare to be alone
So won’t you call me home

I can build this house for two
I can live this life with you

Live Album

People have asked me for years where they could find my music. I’ve stubbornly wrestled with my own inhibitions and finally released something. Its raw, its honest, its live, its for you now. I can’t keep it to myself anymore.

The last few years have been bountiful in experience. I’ve written songs as true to the feeling as I could, and there have been many. I began producing videos as an outlet for the music. At the beginning of this new year I find myself with all these honest recordings made sometimes hours after the writing of the songs. I’ve decided to compile a selection and present them to you listen to and hopefully share. Here is my Live Album. https://danielmoody.bandcamp.com/album/live.
