Word and music by Jenee Halstead

lyrics

She gave me light
I could understand
She noticed I was always alone

She gave me words
I would not understand
She noticed I was on my own

The life I bore into my hands
I thought i’d been seen and known
Oh I’d been known, I’d been known
I’d been known, I’d been known


But I was a wisp
An invisible slip
touched by the meadowlark
full of moon
bowing and swaying
creatures swimming through me
a hollow husk waiting to be filled

And I would wait there for years
I would wait there for years
A plea to God only knows
God only knows what what

I pushed toward the edge
Away from the others
in agony, I filled my cup
At the edge of world

Oh I carried thing inside me
Inside me it grew
And I am not sure of this love
The only love I knew

To heavy bear
It became too heavy to carry
So I buried it in a shoe box
For years to come
For years to come

I knew I was trouble
Sleeping with ghosts
Stretching out on the sheets
Writhing my toes
my hips pressed into the mat
I was with an invisible man
An invisible man

about

Jenee Halstead Somerville, Massachusetts

"She, like Neko Case before her, mines allegories and fables for her songs, but Halstead isn't a cyclone. She floats and observes, almost achieving a spectral presence on her own songs." Stephen Thomas Erlewine - All Music Guide
