Boats slip down the river
The world is split in two
One half shines and shivers
The other half is mute

Cars slip by my window
The wet streets hiss like cats
Stretched long and sleek and heartless
Tear your heart out just like that

There’s roses in the yard
Forgetting in the wine
It’s snowing in my heart
But it’s only raining outside

Been to London, been to Berlin, Paris, Amsterdam
Made my home down in the ninth ward of New Orleans
First days of October and the winter’s coming on
But it never gets too cold here and the winter soon is gone

So why this icy feeling
That’s settled in my mind
It’s sleeting from my ceiling
It’s only raining outside

I need one long day in your woods
One night under your stars
Lay in the leaves looking deep
Into the fire’s heart

I need that fire to warm me
I’m so cold I’m keeping this whole city cool
With my blackberry winter
Through May and into June

I’m glowing such a rich red
A cold, unholy light
You could ice skate round my kitchen,
It’s only raining outside

I’m glowing such a rich red
Burning with a cold, unholy light
You had better come on in my kitchen
Cause it’s raining outside


from Corvidae, released June 1, 2004

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
