It’s been a long, strange week. I’m very aware of patterns in my life, and once again, it seems to repeat itself. I’m not going to elaborate. While attending the Decemberists concert at Hard Rock Live tonight, I teared up when I heard these lyrics:


The Engine Driver

by The Decemberists

I’m an engine driver
On a long run, on a long run
Would I work beside her
She’s a long one, such a long one

And if you don’t love me let me go
And if you don’t love me let me go

I’m a country lineman
On a high line, on a high line
So will be my grandson
There are powerlines in our bloodlines

And if you don’t love me let me go
And if you don’t love me let me go

And I am a writer, writer of fictions
I am the heart that you call home
And I’ve written pages upon pages
Trying to rid you from my bones
My bones
My bones

I’m a money lender
I have fortunes upon fortunes
Take my hand for tender
I am tortured, ever tortured

And if you don’t love me let me go
And if you don’t love me let me go

And I am a writer, writer of fictions
I am the heart that you call home
And I’ve written pages upon pages
Trying to rid you from my bones
I am a writer, I am all that you have home
Home
And I’ve written pages upon pages
Trying to rid you from my bones
My bones
My bones

(And if you don’t love me let me go)
And if you don’t love me let me go
(And if you don’t love me let me go)
And if you don’t love me let me go
