about

Sometimes, I really love Norah Jones.

When those times come around, I write songs like this one.

lyrics

If older days have wandered through my father’s radio,
Playing songs I haven’t heard for someone I haven’t known,
Will I take the chords and melodies and sing them as my own?
I don’t know.

If my children bear themselves a name that’s not the one I gave,
And take to life the questions that I must take to the grave,
Will I answer them in an afterlife, could I greet them at the gates?
I don’t know.

And if a lover finds herself left loving after me,
And takes to me like moonlight does the horizon as it flees,
Will I love her any different than my truth has loved my need?
I don’t know.

If I put faith and love and hope and trust in every song I write,
Will they play themselves ‘til the morning sun turns to the darkness of night?
Will they turn inside out and upside down just to make me right?
I don’t know.

If older days have wandered through my father’s radio,
Singing songs I used to hear for someone I used to know,
Will I take the chords and melodies and hand each a shred of hope?
I don’t know.
