Sharp Cutting Wings (Song To A Poet) by Lucinda Williams


Sharp Cutting Wings (song To A Poet)
by Lucinda Williams
from:  "Happy Woman Blues" CD

you're the one, you're my shinin' star
you're the one I've been waiting for
let's fly away to some foreign country
where nobody knows who we are
I wish I had a ship to sail the waters
I wish I had about a hundred dollars
but I'll just stand with this glass in my hand
feelin' like nothin' even matters

your words run thru me
like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love
before I knew your name
before I knew your name

every day I miss your smilin' face
no one here can ever take your place
the sun can shine down over my town
but it never shines in my day
I told all the stars above
I'm gonna shower you with my love
I won't demand you, I'll try to understand you
my love is as free as a dove

your words run thru me
like the blood in my veins
I could swear I knew your love
before I knew your name
before I knew your name

you're the one, you're my shinin' star
you're the one I've been waiting for
let's fly away to some foreign country
where nobody knows who we are

Nobody on earth sings the blues like Lucinda Williams.  I have all of her music and listen to it often.  Check her out if you've never experienced her soulful tunes.

Blessings,

Marion

There are blues in the air Marion...they are everywhere. I think that here, where blues play hymns of melancholy moods, we live full center. No edges here Marion. Blues are where we begin, from where our soul takes first step.

Blessings! ~ Annie

I'm not sure if I've heard any of her stuff before or not. I like the one I clicked on in your sidebar player, though (Lonely Girls).

Hope you're getting some of this sunshine today, Marion.

the word longing is long like a snake. i wonder on its garden. i wonder as it rears its head so often. it does its work. it waits for the next day.

i like Lucinda. i only like longing when it pays.
