This is how I feel right now...a song by Kathrin Shorr. She is an amazing artist I used to see perform live in LA. In fact, I saw her for the first time at McCabe's the day I bought my best guitar. I can't find a stream and can't upload it but you can hear an excerpt at the link (track 8). You'll just have to enjoy the words. I don't think i have to explain. I wish you could hear it. I'm working on my own version for guitar (the original is for piano.) I hope I got the lyrics right. I hope I can do it justice.

The Seed
Breathing in the air like a sawdust
I can feel like the rays of light like edges
And it cuts me goes straight for the jugular
Goes straight to my brain

I used to dig in a garden of phrases
I could fall in love with my own words
Something happened on the way to heaven
Something happened to these words

What if there were moments for miles?
What if the water in your hand just caught fire?
What if forever came, and went away?

Watch me now as I descend beneath the soil
I'm becoming my own seed
And I will lay here with my belly to the sky
Waiting for this cloud to bleed
Waiting for this cloud to bleed

What if there were moments for miles?
What if the water in your hand just caught fire?
What if forever came and went away?
What if forever came and went away?
