Billie Holiday - I’ll Be Seeing You
That Old Poets’ Song - Emily K. Thiessen
last night, we stayed out too long
waltzed through empty streets
sipped the wine of a day long gone
‘till we lost our feet
you said “no one has ever sung
me that old poets’ song.”
and the words all too easily come
i have whispered them all along.
come tomorrow, i’ll bite my tongue
‘till the song fades away
you say “darling, we’re far too young
to be burdened by fate.”
but with darkness you come undone
with your trembling hands
so i’ll lend you my scarf and we’ll run
to the streets where we used to dance.
tonight, we stayed out too long
but we found our feet
and the words from that old poets’ song
from your mouth, they taste so sweet.
“Come Ye Weary” - Emily K. Thiessen
A song for Christmas; a song for the new year. Thank God we made it here.
Emily K. Thiessen - Somewhere Only We Know (Originally by Keane)
Just a pretty little reinvention I stumbled upon one day. With this song being nearly a decade old, I think it’s probably overdue. Enjoy!
The Staves - Mexico.
I can’t recommend these guys enough. This is one of the absolute most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced.
