a tree stands in a field. the field is bordered by a road. the road leads to a house on a hill. i live there still. no house stands on that hill. never did, never will. and where that road goes no trees grow. i live there still. when i was a child i hid when you called my name. but then you found me and pulled me out. and hurt me just the same. i saw the open would. i saw the blood flow out. i saw my mother turn to me when she heard my voice call out. this would will never heal. and nothing could matter less than what i think or what i feel. this would will never heal. i hope you love me. i need you wil all my soul. but what you feel and who you are is something i will never know. what surrounds me gives no shelter. what binds me does not hold and the light that bathes me and warms my skin in my eyes is always cold. that light falls through a window see the figure that's seated there. she hold an ivory handled comb and draws it through her hair. there is no light to see by. there is no one sitting there but the coldness that is in my heart is more than i can bear. this would will never heal and nothing could matter less than what i think or what i feel. this wound will never heal.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals
He certainly did earn that reputation.

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Little Feat
Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
