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

Wherever You Go

It took me a long time to write this. Its the feeling of being between two worlds. One you’re leaving, one you’re embracing. Yet there are moments when you feel stuck in the middle. Like you can’t go backwards or forwards. All you can do is observe this life you’re putting behind you, and experience a kind of numb, objective, clarity.

Lyrics:

I’m moments from home and it feels like a stone has hit my chest
Like a newborn I am fighting for a breath
This dawn is the wave that rushes my shore then rolls back
Revealing a clean slate and memories washed away

High up here everything gets so clear
Its over you know
Hope can taunt you and love, well it can haunt you
Wherever you go

My city sleeps beneath a blanket of clouds
Do not wake her, let her dream one last time for me
Oh how I wish words could mend all the same wounds that they make
But there are some things we only know how to break

High up here everything gets so clear
Its over you know
Hope can taunt you and love, well it can haunt you
Wherever you go

Over the hills, an ever changing landscape
A chance to be anything but me
No tears to shed, we’ve already formed the lakes
And the rivers, and the oceans that separate us
And liberate us

High up here everything gets so clear
Its over you know
Hope can taunt you and love, well it can haunt you
Wherever you go
