“Honey Jars”


I recently heard this song for the first time and have listened to it over and over.  This is love.

I pick up a broken comb
Run it through my thin grey hair
Though I don’t have any plans tonight
I’m not going anywhere
Well, I should’ve seen this coming
Don’t know why I’m surprised
Every vessel on its way down
Takes with it the captain’s lifeThough I’m blind, my dear, I see
The parade goes on without me
My body aches, my mind, it weeps
For you, for youTonight I’m locked outside my building
Guess I must have lost the keys
So I’ll sit here on the sidewalk
Let the snow fall on my knees
And if I made it to a payphone
I don’t know who I would call
So for now I close my eyes and rest
My crooked back against the wall

I read that old men will see visions
Young men will follow dreams
I believed it when I read it
I see your face in everything
Now your honey jars are frozen
In the window your books have browned
And there’s too much room inside our bed
I think I’ll join you in the ground

Though I’m blind, my dear, I see
Let the chorus sing without me
My body breaks, my mind it sleeps
With you
