Hard to give. Hard to get.

PRESS PLAY:

Lucy wakes me up, stretched across my pillow.  
Whiskers tickling my face.  
I curse her loveliness and pull warm, heart-beating, softness into my chest and squeeze a little tighter than she’d like.  
But she lets me – for a moment.  
Eyes closed.  We both let it in.  
Knowing each other well enough to know what will be tolerated within sleepy love.

 All without words.

Maybe its the words used
between people
that make these moments of sleepy love
so rare.

“Forgiveness:, Patty Griffin
We are swimming with the snakes
At the bottom of the well
So silent and peaceful in the darkness where we fell
But we are not snakes and what’s more
We never will be
And if we stay swimming here forever we will
Never be free

I heard them ringing the bells
In heaven and hell
They got a secret
They’re getting ready to tell
It’s falling from the sky
Calling from the graves
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Open your eyes, boy, I think we are saved
Let’s take a walk on the bridge
Right over this mess
Don’t need to tell me a thing, baby
We’ve already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air
And we were blessed
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness

We are calling for him tonight on this
Thin phone line
As usual we’re having ourselves one
hell of a time
And the planes keep flying right over our heads
No matter how lond we shout
“Hey, hey, hey !”
And we keep waving and waving
Our arms in the air
But we’re all tired out

I heard somebody say
Today’s the day
A big old hurricaine
Is blowing our way
Knocking over the buildings
Killing all the light
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Open your eyes, boy, we made it through the night
Let’s take a walk on the bridge
Right over this mess
Don’t need to tell me a thing, baby
We’ve already confessed
And I raised my voice to the air
And we were blessed
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
Everybody needs a little forgiveness
