Ode to the Exhausted (live)

from Which One's You? by Amy Annelle



written on Clinton Street in Portland, Oregon


it's late
and your head is aching
it'll work itself out
if you'd just be patient

get up
and go to the window
radio tower flashing
what you already know

to be true
is not such a hard thing
to do
not such a hard thing

let go
it'll all come back to you
would you think
or would you do
what your heart's
been telling you?

close the door
and open a window
listen to the traffic go
you're broken bad and blue

it's late
and your heart is aching
it could be so easy
if you'd just stop faking

let's go
it'll all come back to you
what you say and what you do
is that what makes you true?

there's nothing wrong with you
there's nothing wrong with you

recorded live by Mike Gustafson at a show in Des Moines, Iowa
