Track Name: Recovering Eurydice--A Healing Story (8-15-2019)
Full Moon
Written and recorded live, August 15, 2019

Even after all these years
I can’t tell when you are lying
You think I’m silent now
I ain’t even trying
It’s not easy to ignore
The wolf that’s at the door
I can’t listen anymore
To its howling and it’s crying

When you tell me what you need
It doesn’t come so easily
So I will find a way to leave the conversation
You can write it word by word
Sing it like a bird
I’ll pretend it doesn’t hurt
And that’s your problem

Even after all my fears
Were held up to the light
We drank a glass of wine
Stumbled through the night
Now it’s easy to refrain
I won’t even say your name
You can carry all the blame
Go on, you know you want to

And you speak so honestly
It doesn’t matter much to me
Fill up the space between us in frustration
You can write it word by word
Sing it like a bird
I’ll pretend it doesn’t hurt
And that’s your problem

I don’t have to let the light
In the room I occupy
After all these years
Such a slow untying
It’s too easy to ignore
You knocking at the door
I don’t listen anymore
To your howling and your crying
