Damaged



Album: The Best Of Plumb (2000), Chaotic Resolve (2006)



Dreaming comes so easily
'Cause it's all that I've ever know
True love is a fairy tale
I'm damaged, so how would I know

I'm scared and I'm alone
I'm ashamed
And I need for you to know

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

I didn't say all the things that I wanted to say
And you can't take back what you've taken away
'Cause I feel you, I feel you near me

Healing comes so painfully
And it chills to the bone
Will anyone get close to me?
I'm damaged, as I'm sure you know

There's mending for my soul
An ending to this fear
Forgiveness for a man who was stronger
I was just a little girl, but I can't go back

It's too late


It's too late
You say you want me, and it's too late
Once my love for you was so great
But it's too late to love me now
It's too bad
You say you need me, and it's too bad
I know the feelin' and it's so sad
But it's too late to love me now
It's too late to love me now

Don't you know how hard I tried to hold out just for you?
Lovin' you from mem'ry day by day
Then someone came into my life, turned my dreams around
He's takin' all the love you threw away

It's too late
You say you want me, and it's too late
Once my love for you was so great
But it's too late to love me now
It's too late to love me now

Don't you know how hard I tried to hold out just for you?
Lovin' you from memory day by day
Then someone came into my life, turned my world around
He's takin' all the love you threw away

It's too late
You say you need me, and it's too late
Once my love for you was so great
But it's too late to love me now
It's too late to love me now

Only until this cigarette is ended


Only until this cigarette is ended...

    ONLY until this cigarette is ended
    A little moment at the end of all,
    While on the floor the quiet ashes fall,
    And in the firelight to a lance extended,
    Bizarrely with the jazzing music blended,
    The broken shadow dances on the wall,
    I will permit my memory to recall
    The vision of you, by all my dreams attended.
    And then adieu, -- farewell! -- the dream is done.
    Yours is a face of which I can forget
    The colour and the features, every one,
    The words not ever, and the smiles not yet;
    But in your day this moment is the sun
    Upon a hill, after the sun has set.
    Edna St. Vincent Millay

Thunderstorms

    Thunderstorms

    My mind has thunderstorms,
    That brood for heavy hours:
    Until they rain me words,
    My thoughts are drooping flowers
    And sulking, silent birds.

    Yet come, dark thunderstorms,
    And brood your heavy hours;
    For when you rain me words,
    My thoughts are dancing flowers
    And joyful singing birds.

    William Henry Davies


Thursday


Thursday

    I have had my dream--like others--
    and it has come to nothing, so that
    I remain now carelessly
    with feet planted on the ground
    and look up at the sky--
    feeling my clothes about me,
    the weight of my body in my shoes,
    the rim of my hat, air passing in and out
    at my nose--and decide to dream no more.

    William Carlos Williams

I Remembered




There never was a mood of mine

Gay or heartbroken; luminous or dull

But you could ease me of its fever

and give it back to me more beautiful.


In many another soul I broke the bread,

and drank the wine,played the happy guest,

But I was lonely, I remembered you;

My heart belongs to him who knew it best.


Sara Teasdale
