about

Even Now is a song about sorrow that interweaves itself within our family narrative. It is not only a reminder of deep human longing felt in wanting a family, but the anguish we all experienced (myself, my wife, our birthmother and our daughter) at various times in the story. This mutual sorrow is something that bonded all of us together. And while our story ended in the ability to be her parents, the sorrow in the story is something we readily accept for our daughter. We knowingly accept that she will have to negotiate her own complex feelings for all the characters of her story – which she loves equally. So this song represents all of us.

lyrics

EVEN NOW

Night shines
through the window
where the moon paints the wall
I find you sleeping
like branches of trees after the fall
and the wind it blows through the curtains
whispering hope in a voice yet so small

And even now
as you lie still
sorrow hides
'neath a dam of self will
that would flow effortlessly
to the ground

Long cries
as a woman
with a barren womb
I try to be faithful
to the promise of an empty tomb

Even now
as you lie still
sorrow hides
'neath a dam of self will
that would flow effortlessly to the ground
from your head – to your heart – in a whelm where we drown
from your head - to your heart - through your arms – into mine
