I found my voice
Over Gillian Welch
Wet eyes in the screen light
The longing we felt

I found my voice
Over Gillian Welch
Wet eyes in the screen light
The longing we felt

If I could take your heart
Out of your chest
Flesh in my hand
Pushed through my breast

I’d have your heart beat
Inside of mine
I’d have your longing
I’d give you mine

I found my voice
Over Gillian Welch
Wet eyes in the screen light
The longing we felt

I found my voice
Over Gillian Welch
Wet eyes in the screen light
The longing we felt

It’s like the way you pictured your mother in the 70s
Bike wheels on the sidewalk, bare-feet, southern street, oak trees
Riding down 13th in her blue jeans to the university
She crawled through the window, front row, rock show, soul glow

She found her joy
With The Allman Brothers Band
Her baby boomer parents
Could not understand

She found her joy
With The Allman Brothers Band
Her baby boomer parents
Could not understand

She married at the young age of 18
No need for career
No completed degree
Yet she spent hours in the library
Her life always full, with always more to read

She found her joy
In the museum of art
Regardless of her losses
She would still have this part

She found her joy
In the museum of art
Regardless of her losses
She would still have this part

When you’re down and feeling lonely you’ll have
All the things that you have built for yourself
If you ever lose your man or your wealth
You will always have the things you built yourself

When you’re down and feeling lonely you’ll have
All the things that you have built for yourself
If you ever lose your man or your wealth
You will always have the things you built yourself
