lyrics

i would be sad if not for you 
you would be blue if not for me 
good thing we travel well together 
birds of a feather in the shivery breeze
i would be sitting in some station waiting
you would be riding on some aeroplane
we would have no one to turn to
when the fine weather turned to rain
now if i ever am unkind
please know i’ll never be untrue
‘cause even when you’re nowhere near my side
no one comes as close as you
and if the journey should take us separate roads 
for a week couple months half a year 
well then in turn we can only suppose 
that the time we spend together 
will be ever so much more dear, dear
i’ve put away my pipes and bottles
i’ve put away my childish things
the only chemistry that interests me
is the smoke and fire when you and i sing
i could be walking down some city street
you could be driving up some motorway
we would have no one to break into smiles with
when the sunshine break through the gray
and then i would be sad were it not for you
and you would be blue if not for be
good thing we travel well together 
birds of a feather in the shivery breeze
winter 98 New Orleans

about

Myshkin Warbler Astoria, Oregon

Myshkin and an ever-evolving crew of restless gamblers—string, horn, drum, key, and and wave players. Passions range from tango to electronica, folk-noir to gypsy-swing to modern classical to rocknroll. Literate & spooky. Myshkin mostly plays guitars. When warm, she sings like a shiver down your chakras. Like a heart breaking all wide open. Like one in utter control of uncontrollable things. ... more
