Stay, don’t go, grace is a lover undressing the soul. And I’ll wait here for her tomorrow where sunlight hides behind the moon. I go to confess with her hands to my chest all my sorrows fall into you. God, you feel like an eclipse, where I get so in-ar-tic-u-late, and the words just cling to my lips. Does that makes two of us? Faith, into hope, love lies down between them both. And I’ll wait here for her tomorrow, where sunlight hides behind the moon. I go to confess with your mouth to my lips my sorrows fall into you. God, you feel like an eclipse, where I get so in-ar-tic-u-late, and the words just cling to my lips. I guess that makes two of us? I guess that makes two of us? Can you make a crooked thing straight? Can you make a crooked thing straight? Can you make a crooked thing straight? Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble

This is my letter to the world that left no forwarding address all the secrets of a girl whose tongue would not confess save for the power of the pen Emily Dickinson took the boat for england lost her husband. took a child. thick lipped. yet delicate. she sailed away for new york Brownstone apartment. fire escape. a view of harlem from the stairs. The sting of wind against the skin the call of vendors in the air and all the downcast and downtrodden (who gather there) The white horse tavern took her in poured her absinthe and a shot of gin (lucky worked the bar on mondays, he said hello). She met a man who made her smile he made her laugh. it drove him wild. and when he turned to pay the tab he lost her to a taxi cab (E. D.) took the bus from new york bound her memoirs of the sea thick lipped. yet delicate. she drove to california Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble

Blue you make me smile when your mood lies down here for awhile could you afford a major chord to make us all smile? Moon shine down let your blue light hue touch the ground do you mind keeping time here with my sound? Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble

Warm is your breath. mysterious all my faith and fear beneath your silent shroud you draw me near ... like a child Voice undistinguished between — joy and sorrow the warmth of love. you call my name in the strongholds of peace break me to tears before the kindest maker Music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble

In the evening she kisses the earth as she kneels down to pray and her sorrows are all that are pure as silence becomes language He is a man bent on his rage with the passion that burns him too close to the skin a flame that ignites to a brilliant mistake and his conscience is all that is left there without stain I am Alyosha in a room full of souls give me your sorrow i’ll give you my hope faith, love, longing and joy and i'll be your angel with with the face of a boy The sins of the father run blood red with wine "Grushenka my darling" the old man still cries Brother you murdered your soul with your mind dissect all the parts to the whole where the whole leaves you blind And I am Alyosha in a room full of souls give me your sorrow i will give you my joy there is not one that heaven can't hold and i'll be your angel in earth colored clothes Who by fate or fire's dim light took from Karamazov the end of his life? There by the rope hangs the end of his curse ... * see note music and lyrics p&© Robert Deeble Artist note: my only regret to this live recording is forgetting the very last line of this song... "the son of a sensualist by idiot's birth."
