Song of the late evening. (Many late evenings.)


"Little Fire" by Patty Griffin (and Emmylou Harris).

all that I want is one who knows me
a kind hand on my face when I weep
and I'd give back these things that I know are meaningless
for a little fire beside me when I sleep

If those aren't perfect lyrics I don't know what are.

Oh Jonathan. I adore you. And the Wailin' Jennys! I think my favorite song of theirs is "Heaven When We're Home." Or "Beautiful Dawn." My sister went on a musical mission trip where she and her group sang "One Voice"!

But seriously, I think I'll tell my new therapist that my life as a single person can be summed up in this lyric from "Heaven When We're Home":

they say if you stop looking
it doesn't matter if you find it
and whose to say that even if I did
it's really what I'm looking for

UGH I so look forward to being your friend for life, Jonathan!

Aw I just saw this comment after posting mine on the one above. YES, I love Heaven When We're Home. I also listened to Something To Hold Onto a lot when I was breaking up with Jerky McJerkerson. Let's talk Patty and Jennys some day soon. <3
