about

Love & Loss cuts with the same blade. The beauty of knowing someone, loving them, and holding them. Then to loose them is both a blessing and a curse.

lyrics

An Intimate Curse
Music & Lyrics by Stavros

Babe, you're gone, but here's a song
I wrote for you
And you don't care, anymore

Remembering how we used to laugh
and wanted more
Couldn't wait to speak with you

About everything and everyone
And nothing much in particular

Now, I wait by the phone
but there's no text from you
And the silence is deafening

Woe oh, memories of you
move through me like a ghost
Woe oh, haunting with hurt
such an intimate curse
Woe oh, I wouldn't change a thing
because I got to know you
Woe oh, I may not want the pain
but I will always love you

Thinking of the shape of you
lying next to me
But now you're gone, with some one else

I realize just how unspecial
I made you feel despite
Everything I ever did

And maybe that I can't change the world
or, how you see yourself in tact
Within the cage of your mind

But I still love you
through all the hurtful things you've said
When you over-react

Woe oh, memories of you
move through me like a ghost
Woe oh, haunting with hurt
such an intimate curse
Woe oh, I wouldn't change a thing
because I got to know you
Woe oh, I may not want the pain
but I will always love you

Babe, you're gone, but here's a song
I wrote for you
'Cause even now your touch fades

Thinking of how you looked at me
carves me up with sympathy
Hollowed out like a dying tree

Does love rot when unfelt
or, does it linger on
To your last breath

Holding our for just one chance
to say good night
And kiss your lips one last time

Woe oh, memories of you
move through me like a ghost
Woe oh, haunting with hurt
such an intimate curse
Woe oh, I wouldn't change a thing
because I got to know you
Woe oh, I may not want the pain
but I will always love you

about

Cherokee Starlight Albuquerque, New Mexico

Music is! It's the language of my heart, my mind, and Spirit. It is the language of our Earth, the stars; it is life. Every vibration that moves within us, around us, and through us, can be heard, felt, and played. I play with the sounds of Folk, Rock, Punk, Funk, Hip Hop, Spoken Word, and Jazz to explore the journey of this odd flesh suitcase traveling down this organic ghetto. ... more
