"Modulation" as written by and Ani Difranco....
in order to say thank you to you
i must do it intentionally
but tonight with every breath
i can feel my death
as sure as i can feel my knees

you are my modulation
and that's what you will always be
we took each other higher
we set each other free

we set each other free

course, neither of us were wearing helmets
and our blood was just everywhere
and when the morphine kicked in later
?the censors/census? threw their hands up in despair

and that's when the truth came marching in
and promptly pulled the plug
but you were better than any drug
you were better than any drug

in order to say thank you to you
i must do it intentionally
but tonight with every breath, I can feel my death
as sure as i can feel my knees

you are my modulation
and that's what you will always be
we took each other higher
we set each other free

we set each other free

    General CommentWhen I saw Ani in 2004, she played a song she had just written that week, in her hotel room. I believe it was this one - she said she was still learning it because the modulation was tricky. I think it's a neat metaphor, comparing a musical progression to a relationship. For anyone who's ever who's ever loved someone the way they love a song, going up and down with them.
