"Xanax" as written by and Henderson....
Afraid of an airplane
Of a car swerving in the lane
Of a dark cloud too low
Of being swept away by the undertow
Of a building tumbling down
Of the train when it's underground
Of the icy mountain roads
We have to take to get to the show

There's just a time when we must all let go of that that we hold
There's just a time when we must all let go of that that we hold
With not being known, we'll have to go

Afraid when the phone rings
Another breath of life has ceased
It seems it's just lost so easily

Afraid of my heart that beats too slow
Or that I died and just didn't know
Or of a fate I will have to choose
And I'm afraid of how much I love you

There's just a time when we must all let go of that that we hold
There's just a time when we must all let go of that that we hold
With not being known, we'll have to go

It's just now that I've found a place where I can breathe
It's just now that I've found a place where I can sleep
It's just now that I've found a place where I can breathe
It's just now that I've found a place where I can sleep
It's just now that I've found a place where I can breathe
It's just now that I've found a place where I can sleep
It's just now that I've found a place where I can breathe
It's just now that I've found a place where I can sleep

    General CommentI think it's actually "and I'm afraid of how much I love you" instead of "and I'm afraid of how much I'll lose".
    Well, at least that's what I'm hearing.
    Beautiful song, regardless.

    General CommentMaria's ability to write wonderful, poignant lyrics always makes me smile. She focuses on the most simple things and points out the beauty in them.

    General Commentits about how people think too much about things and how they COULD happen, instead of just letting them happen on their own. and yes...more literally its about how people are afraid to love, and how, in the end she lets go of her breath and lets things happen

    General CommentI saw Maria Taylor open for Mates of State and she was absolutely incredible. They played this song and it just blew me away.

    General Commenti saw maria live, too, and i thought this song was better live than on the cd. it's much louder. but nevertheless this is a fantastic song.

    General Commenti just realized something: "or like a died" is actually "or that it died."
