Come By Storm




All that was
A picture was
A poem was a poem
Words were trees of brown of gold
You were a place I had come to know

If the dark falls early
Would you come in the night
Would you come with the morning
Come by fire or come by storm

...and I Will Shelter You


I left you heartbroken
but not until those very words were spoken
Has anybody ever made such a fool out of you?

It's hard to believe it
But even as my eyes do see it
The very things that make you live are killing you, too

So listen, when all of this around us will fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love
And I will shelter you


Ray LaMontagne - Shelter (live) : Live From Bonaroo 2005

Shelter From the Storm


Now there's a wall between us
something has been lost
I took too much for granted
got my signals crossed
Just to think it all began on some long-forgotten morn
"Come in," she said, "I'll give you shelter from the storm."


Waiting for tomorrow's hurricane.

I Want You (and to see Common, too)



If all goes well, hopefully I'll be seeing Common at the Rock the Bells Festival next month when it hits Boston along with Erykah Badu, Mos Def, Lauryn Hill, DOOM, Nas, and others (see the full line-up on the festival's official website).

obstinate, adj.


obstinate, adj.

Sometimes it becomes a contest: Which is more stubborn, the love or the two arguing people caught within it?
