that list of charms was longer than my chain of broken hearts

i am excitedly off to iowa for a few days to stay with anna and joseph. there will be antique shopping, cooking, catching up, and hopefully a trip to see brian at his grandma's farm. i'm pretty much over the moon about the whole thing, and am feeling grateful for all my wonderful friends...

while i'm gone, listen to this song from the pretty mix brandon made me. i had never heard of ane brun, but i am about to become kind of obsessed with her.


When I woke
I took the backdoor to my mind
and then I spoke
I counted all of the good things you are

that list of charms was
longer than my chain of broken hearts
and when the day was done
I figured I had already lost
from the start – from the start

I was gonna love you till the end of all daytime
and I was gonna keep all our secret signs and our lullabies
I was made to believe that our love would grow old
we were gonna live in a treehouse and make babies
and we were gonna bury our ex-lovers and their ghosts
baby we were made of gold

so many times
we drank fine wine in one swallow
and in those late nights
we painted our walls bright yellow
