poesia musicada [cardinal] 032
linda perhacs – (Hey Now) who really cares, 1970


//-----

Been coming down for a long time
Changes coming down on me
Can't seem to carry 'em all now
Been wishing there was someone else I could be

Hey now, who really cares
Hey, won't somebody listen
Let me say what's been on my mind
Can I bring it out to you
I need someone to talk to
And no one else would spare me the time

I used to think of ferris wheel light sounds
The friday hum of neons and blue
But now they're like circular cages
Of graded tin and rusted wind

Hey now, who really cares
Hey, won't somebody listen
Let me say what's been on my mind
Can I bring it out to you
I need someone to talk to
And no one else would spare me the time

poesia musicada [cardinal] 031
let me go, let me go, let me go - jason molina, 2006


//-----

Wait behind
Wait behind
Wait behind

Shadows still with us
The tides are with us
Silent sorrow with us
As long as there's no forgiveness
Wait behind

Owl above places of the dead
And I have to believe everything she said
As long as there's no forgiveness
Wait behind

Hymns still close to your ears
That you can still hear
Graves still close to the water
Moon still walking the shore
That mule's head still in the sycamore
Waiting behind
Let me go, let me go, let me go

So I can wait behind
