lyrics

I’ve sung your songs
of love and loss
Of new love
of true love
of heartbreak
of times without hope
So why can’t I?
So why can’t I
sing of my own?

I line my home
with the lines you wrote
fictional lives full of truth
stepping out of the frame
of the page
So why can’t I?
So why can’t I
live with my own?

Lips form words
from a racing, tangled mind
And melody trace
our soul’s deepest sighs
And muscles and neurons
and organs help the air
to carry a tune
if you can’t tell a story
you can still say a prayer

Elephant tears
for a secret soaked seven year old
Sun beams
for the rainclouds
that darken a teenage mind
And send out an olive branch
for the soul tossed on the sea
she carries a key
to a fortressed heart
