Every Other Note

from The Ghosts Beneath Our Feet by Nora Nygard

/

lyrics

they bulldozed the sanctuary
took it all away from me

you told me never to write
about you so I won’t
I’ll remember you in
every other note

every single thing. the coinstar
the toddler in the toy car
the rain in my shoe
makes me think of you

disappear into the void
of black bean patties
demonoid pink to the spine
your persistent memory

you told me never to write
about you so I won’t
I’ll remember you in
every other note

I’m so glad I waited for it
my first time in a forest
so young but I knew what was important
instant coffee in the morning

we need to make a point
of doing this our whole lives
packing up our bags
waking in wild light

you told me never to write
about you so I won’t
I’ll remember you in
every other note

I know I’m not always patient
I know I’m not always kind
I’m working to be better
I swear to God I’m trying
all I wanted was to love you

deja vu about deja vu
this route’s so strange without you
lungs like a pipe organ
counting bunnies every morning

they broke her leg in the spring
she held it up all summer
last time I saw her there was snow on the ground
somehow she stuck around

Reclaiming my voice from the choir, reshaping my voice after punk rock. Years of isolation, hormone therapy, production studies, and hundreds of releases with various projects. ... more
