Breathe to Dream

April 15, 2015

Writing helps me breathe
Like carbon for the trees
I take the bad
And turn it into good
Internalize it all
Just like you knew I would.

Trees and birds passing notes
I’ve got this place that no one knows
They’ll never find us there
So leave behind your worldly cares.
This is where yours and mine,
They can unite
And all our dreams can finally fly.


Everytime I Fall

November 14, 2011

This is how I feel everytime I fall
Scrapin’ my knees,
Gettin’ caught on it all
Poundin’ in my heart, takin’ me home
So this is what it’s like when you’re never alone

You’re pulling me under with all your might
Please keep me safe and I’ll hold on tight

Show me no mercy as you love me full
Everything you say is just so powerful
There’s beauty in your words
And I love them, too
I could spend days
Listenin’ to you

You’re a fresh breath on a brisk spring eve
Spouting thoughts I ne’er could concieve
Whistle me a tune, sing me to sleep
Just please promise me, you’ll never leave

Your beautiful symphonies
Wrap me up in soliloquies
You surprise me with your harmonies
Kiss me with your melodies

Keep me from sleep
With all this loving energy
It’s all so earth-changing
I toss out any complaining,
Happy instead simply to take part
Singing songs written from the heart.

(This is a song I wrote in April 2010 about how deeply in love I fell with the Wailin’ Jennys’ beautiful music that night)
