the cavalry


friends,

 

episode 712 is a brief hello.

 

i'm persuaded that any serious transformation

must begin within our hearts.

 

related,

i'm inspired by - ayishat akinabi.

 

i'm thankful yr here,

and hope you'll - join me.

 

tonight's songs:

- curious (demo #2, 2020)

- the cavalry (demo #1, 2020)

- i'm a magnet (demo, 2017)

russell

 

p.s. - here're the lyrics to "cavalry"...

 

cavalry

 

the cavalry ain't one indeed

i don't think we can go back to where we were

accidents, in fact, are destined to occur

 

<chorus>

for someone who can't see the world

we have to draw some boundaries

 

am i what you think you see,

who's to say or disagree?

the focus must be on a faith,

a fortune we can't operate

 

<chorus>

for someone who can't see the world

we have to draw some boundaries

it's true i've given up, for hope,

an emptiness pervades us both

 

i want off this island here

i want love to re-appear

i want you to know your face

is beautiful, to be embraced

 

<chorus>

from someone who can't save the world

we have to draw some boundaries

it's true i've given up, for hope,

an emptiness pervades us both

 

but i can't wait for you no more

sinking right there at the shore

that's not how it has to be

g-d's alive in you and me...

 

<chorus>

from someone who can't save the world

we have to draw some boundaries

it's true i've given up, for hope,

an emptiness pervades us both

inside

+ hope you'll - join me.

del mar


friends,

 

episode 710 is an attempt at balance.

 

regret, failure, + loss

seem to have their proper place,

don't they?

 

it's tough stuff,

but working toward a healthy form of acceptance

(even when that seems impossible)

feels like maybe

just enough

hope.

 

let's keep going.

 

i'm thankful yr here,

and hope you'll - join me.


tonight's songs:

- sometimes you can't get over a broken heart (deep, deeper, deepest, 2014)

- del mar (demo, 2020)

- sanchez and 29th (splitting, 2015)

 

love,

russell
