lyrics

and when i watched you sleep
i heard the ancients weep
tear their hair and gnash their teeth
for never having known you sweet
and when the soldiers came
and the bombs fell like rain
i cried not for pain nor hunger
i could only cry your name
now men in offices
will have their reasons
but what purpose could it serve this
taking you away from me
and when you rocked away
i heard the harbor waves
slap the sides of silver sailors 
say that you were gone now safe
now men in offices
will make their treatied peace
but i wonder could they have unleashed their guns dear
if they’d ever watched you 
how could they if they’d watched you
they could not if they had ever watched you sleep
spring 99 New Orleans

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
