waiting on the front porch

she just stood there on the front porch waiting for her will to come and get her she was packed she had a suitcase full of noble intentions she had a map and a straight face hell bent on reinvention she was learning about please and huge humilities then one day she looked around her and everything up til then was showing and she wondered how did i get here without even knowing where i was going? ~ani difranco

i'll celebrate halloween later

mount washington, by beth orton

Watching the sun coming up over Mount Washington
Forever testing your intention
Watching the sun going down over Mount Zion
And what you sing you never could say
It ain't because there's any question
do it to before it's done unto you

It ain't because there's any question you love out of frame
And nobody can keep you from the one you know you are
Nobody to steal away your sway the way you walk
Need there never be a time that you don't walk through
May there never be a time that you don't live through
Be a star, be an altar, and I will hang it on you

Watching the sun coming up over St Jude street
Forever testing your invention
Watching the sun going down over Mount Zion
And once awake you never sleep on
It ain't because there's any question
Do unto as you'd have done by you
It ain't because you ever question
Your love out of view

And nobody can keep you from the ones you love
Nobody to steal away your sway the way you walk
May there never be a time that you don't walk through
May there never be a time when you don't live through

Be a star, be an altar and I will hang it on you
You are, you are alone into the unknown
You are, you are alone into the unknown

May there never be a time that I don't love you
May there never be a time that you don't pull thru
Be a star, be an altar and they will hang it on you
Bring it on, bring it on
Bring it on...
