What had she not known?  He admitted his sins to her, and yet a detailed look anew suddenly changes who she thinks he is? He thought she wanted a friend to turn to, he thought he had a friend to turn to.

Bright Eyes: Ten Songs For New Ears

      No Comments on Bright Eyes: Ten Songs For New Ears

One of life’s most pleasurable “little things” that I relish with youthful zeal is sharing new music with new ears, or old music with new ears.  I should rephrase that first sentence.  The music itself may or may not be “new,” but when it’s new to the listener that’s all that really matters, isn’t it?

A sad fact widely known How the most impassionate song To a lonely soul Is so easily outgrown But don’t forget the songs That made you smile And the songs that made you cry When you lay in awe On the bedroom floor And said: “Oh, smother me, Mother…” The passing of time And of all its crimes Is making… Read more »
