“i tried to give you my heart” no. 7 mixed media- illustration by K. J. Legry
 We looked for the scars left by the forest fires
with Ralph’s begonia behind your drivers seat
and faced a growing storm through the gorge
as shorter daylight hours darkened.
You read to me in bed for hours the night before we packed
just because I’d asked you to 
and the deep sound of your voice calmed my nerves,
how I wanted
and knew it always would.

The Noises 10 featuring Brandi Carlile “My Repair (ghost mix)” LYRICS:

Night sweats
sheets soakin’ wet
I toss and turn tryin to shake this regret
but i know I’ll do it again
water keep risin’ over my head
Cold bones
sink like a stone
down to the deep with the mooring slow
I know you reap what you sow
lost in the dark awaitin’ the glow
Oh another night another song
my angel comes to save before long
pulls me up for air
honey i swear
your love is my repair
Oh no sleep, swimming this deep
in the squalid corners
where the shiftless grieve
they lock in to my heartbeat drummin’
I can’t sniff ’em out, can’t see ’em comin’
And all these scars can’t be for nothin’
I swear to god I won’t be runnin’
’cause we know what nobody knows
we make the rules
they play the fools
Oh another night another song
my angel comes to save before long
pulls me up for air
honey I swear
your love is my repair
And lately well I wonder maybe
if we could know at all to which purpose we’ve been called
but still i’m grateful that you’re not hateful
for all the wrong i cause
still you never gave pause
 No~
Oh another night another song
my angel comes to save before long
pulls me up for air
honey I swear
your love is my repair
When nothin’ went right everything wrong
we lose the money we lose the song
I don’t care
honey I swear
your love is my repair

Mariam the Believer “Opening” from (Love Everything) LYRICS:

This could be the end

of all the ends; I could throw in the towel baby

Let’s not pretend that we’re not drained; there’s been so much fighting lately

and loving a big handful just as well as hurting deep at the core,

This love takes the breath out of me;

I’m getting tired but want so much more

so Please love me ’til I’m full of me

Love me ’til I’m full again.

Love me ’til I’m full of me

Love me ’til I’m full again.

(aaah~)

Laughing and dancing on the street,

Kissing on boats and planes; the richness of everyday meant

is riding on buses and trains.

The more life, the more I give to you

gagging back more than I could ever give

but still there is an emptiness in me

of more hold for every day I live

so Please love me ’til I’m full of me

Love me ’til I’m full

Love me ’til I’m full 

Love me ’til I’m full again.

Oh won’t you

Love me ’til I’m full

Love me ’til I’m full again.  Please~

Love me ’til I’m full

Love me ’til I’m full again.

“tried to give u my heart” no. 5 (hand-held geometry graphing calculator heart) mixed media illustrated by K. J. Legry

i read a 15th-century poem and

Cupid had three arrows:

golden was gentle and Smitten and easily cured;

silver was compelling;

and steel opened a love-wound that never heals…

there was also the matter of friendly fire.

“tried to give u my heart” no. 4 illustrated/mixed media by K. J. Legry

He said to mind the weather, something about it being chaotic 

but agreed for someone like me,

it would be fortifying when I was searching

for the center

of the universe.

I answered back, How

that only makes me think of him, basking

in the light

of his beautiful truth

and the Way

my desire burns

to be kindling with him soon

“tried to give u my heart” no. 3 illustrated by K. J. Legry

lashes against his cheek, impressing him with a flurry of

butterfly kisses we talk about

delicate love;

and how

it can survive frost because of what is deep down,

chrysalis or seed~

all hibernations reflect this truth.

I am grateful for: “what blossoms in my head…”

“tried to give u my heart” no. 2 illustrated by K. J. Legry

i dreamed i could 

give these songs to you

about when spring blossoms fell 
on my head
and the sky was floating full of clouds.
You came back to whisper 
how
winter is coming
how
you still want to keep me
warm.

The Cat Clyde “Like a Wave” (music video) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

Cat Clyde “Like a Wave” LYRICS:
I’m spinning like the undertow
Taking you way, way down
My thoughts are colossal
I can see they weigh you down

And I feel my soul is sitting on a dock
Looking at the endless sea
Hoping somehow
You are sailing back to me

Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come
Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come back to me

Like pounding on padded walls
My heart beats subtle
All I can smell is stale smoke
Dirty sheets, and covers

Just sweep across me like a wave
Taking me like a rushing river
And I’ll sink down, down, down
Into the deepest waters

(down, down, down)

Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come
Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come back to me

Like a wave, like a wave
You wash over me
The sea’s always, always, always
Like a wave, like a wave you wash over me
The sea’s always, always callin’ you away

Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come
Tenderly, heavily, you will come
You will come back to me

(You will come back to me…)

The Jesca Hoop “Bed Across the Sea (undressed)” (live music video) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

Jesca Hoop “Bed Across the Sea” LYRICS:

LA is hot as fuck
And Manchester is about to freeze
You’re on your way to the mail
To get a letter from me

And as of our seperation
At the Ancienne Belgique
I rock you every night
In a bed across the sea

Words are all we have for touch
They are our fingers
And I love our words so much
Write your lips to kiss me now
And I can taste you as I read your words out loud

You rise and start your day
With toast and black tea
While I’m in the still of night and pushing back sleep
And I ride the hands of the clock
‘til they fall upon three
And drop me in your virtual garden for eleven seas

Words are all we have for touch
They are our fingers and I love our words so much
And write your hands between my legs
And I can feel you as the words jump from the page
The sky is bruised
It’s a lusty dusk
With lovers rouge
Wet with sap and musk
Under you
Under dream spell dust under you
And its true
And I know that I must
And with you
I immediately trust
And it’s so
That I fell at first blush

And it’s snowing in Australia

Just now your letter came
And the pages did say
That you’ll fly from your home to mine
On January 8th
And just now I find that I can just barely wait
And from now until that time
I’m counting down the days

Words are all we have for touch
They are our fingers and I love our words so much
And write yourself inside me now
And I can feel you as the words come pouring out
Words are all we have for touch
They are our fingers and I love our words so much
Write your dreams out line by line
And I will stitch them in this heart of mine

Chela  “Full Moon” LYRICS:

Crash into each other
We blame one another (x2)

Hey beware
A different grace is in the air
Feel unreal
What is now is not the deal

The full moon is out and casting it’s light on you
The full moon is out and casting it’s sight on you

Don’t fight
Ride into the night
Safe until the morning light
Dance until you die (x2)

Crash into each other
We blame one another (x2)

Hey beware
A different grace is in the air
Feel unreal
What is now is not the deal

The full moon is out and casting it’s light on you
The full moon is out and casting it’s sight on you

Don’t fight
Ride into the night
Safe until the morning light
Dance until you die (x4)
