“…since I do purpose to marry,
I will think nothing to any purpose that the world can say against it,
and therefore never flout at me for what I have said against it.

For man is a giddy thing, and this is my conclusion.”

The Lament of Eustace Scrubb

The Lament of Eustace Scrubb

“Brother, forgive me
we both know I’m the one to blame
when I saw my demons
I knew them well and welcomed them

but I’ll come around
someday

Father, have mercy
I know that I have gone astray
when I saw my reflection
it was a stranger beneath my face

but I’ll come around
someday

when I touch the water
they tell me I could be set free

so I’ll come around
someday.”

“Helping the kids out of their coats
But wait the babies haven’t been born
Unpacking the bags and setting up
And planting lilacs and buttercups

But in the meantime I’ve got it hard
Second floor living without a yard
It may be years until the day
My dreams will match up with my pay

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old

I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house
And we’ll collect the moments one by one
I guess that’s how the future’s done

How many acres how much light
Tucked in the woods and out of sight
Talk to the neighbours and tip my cap
On a little road barely on the map

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old
Old dirt road
Rambling rose
Watching the fire as we grow
well I’m sold”
