I Dedicate This Album To You, To Us.

n27421445_37609719_2298This past weekend I found myself wanting to hear some live music – and often I end up at The Ark when this happens.  So last Saturday night Katie Herzig was playing,  I was not familiar with her music but I went.  WOW!

I cannot stop listening to her album “Apple Tree” and have been listening to it on a continuous loop ever since.  Her songwriting and lyrics are smart, bittersweet, ironic, funny…it is just fine, fine music.  Great voice.  Love it.

Did I mention that I really like her music, really LOVE IT!

Because my brain does these things – I have linked up all of these songs with my last relationship.  I would dedicate this whole album to you ,to us.  Most especially this song…this is my break up song.  When I hear it I smile broadly — I think about how grateful I am for music, for love (even when it doesn’t work it is the most brilliant mistake), for you, for loving you…still.  I listen to this song and I smile broadly – I want to touch the sky.  Love.  Love.  Love.

I, I want to wish you well
I didn’t watch you go
Cause I suppose I don’t know how
I, I will remember you
Not the way you left but how you lived
And what you knew

I, I want to feel your hands
I want to feel your fire burning
Right from where I stand

I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want toknow it’s you
When I hear your voice inside my head
Inside my room
I, want to touch the sky
I want to see the stars twinkle
Like they were your eyes

I’ll find my way
You showed me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how

I, I want to smell your scent
I want to breathe the air I did before
Before you left

I, I want to wish you well
The only reason my heart beats
Is cause you showed it how

I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
You show me
I’ll find my way
Cause you showed me how
You show me how
You showed me how
