Recorded LIVE on 102.5 WDVE Coffeehouse with Randy Baumann on July 13, 2017


My Chimera

She is a song with no ending
She is a harp with fresh strings
She is a permanent coda
At once she is all of these things

She’s my chimera <x4>
But no one can hear her but me

She splinters my eye with her light
Her feminine chakra’s bright pink
She is a black hole for lovers
She disappears when you blink

She’s my chimera <x4>
But no one can see her but me

I got hope to remember
I got dreams to forget
I’ve got pain, pain
With my hands in my pockets
My lips zippered closed
It’s a limb on my body, I just can’t let go

It’s hard to acknowledge
But deep down I know
My chimera can’t help me anymore

Her body is dust in a sunray
Her dance is a breeze on my cheek
She is the hair that grows in my legs
When the day is cold, windy, and bleak

She’s my chimera <x4>

No one can feel her but me <x4>
