about

from DM Stith:
Now I think I know what people aim to mean when they use the word ‘Love,’ but for a long time the term struck me as a precious tool blunted by misuse. And instead of a clean heal after the cut is made, your life is left to manage a series of rips, breaks, and bruises. Your experience with Love is confusing. The mention of the word utterly drains you. Sometimes it’s best just to walk away. This humble happy little kick-up-and-whirl of a song tumbled out one morning in Spring 2011 and cleared the way for a new body of work.

lyrics

Mother tries to run before her brittle legs can walk
I am withdrawing
I back away from it
Father tries to love more than his little world can hold
I am withdrawing
I back away from it

And it’s all for what
Our love could never grow strong enough

I have tried to focus on an invisible love
I am withdrawing
I back away from it

Have I tried to force a word to sound
To hold its own to hold its own
And have I tried to force a sound to speak
To hold its own to hold its own
I back away from it
I back away from it
