song length: 6m 21s

blogging from india. i'm having a sleepless night in a hotel in mumbai. the tv is on, but even cnn is incomprehensible. my room has a view of the arabian sea; i see nothing but darkness, interrupted only by faint yellow light bulbs. i need to wake up in four hours, but i can't even close my eyes, yet neither am i fully awake. my mind is way away. i turn my laptop on. he sings softly in my ear, and he breaks my heart again.
carry me ohio
mark kozelek

sorry that
i could never love you back
i could never care enough
in these last days

her tears fell
on her pages
found me well on her words
i don't know what to do or say

wading through
warm canals and pools clear blue
Tuscarawas flow into
the great lake

riding
back where the highway met dead tracks
ground and now cement and glass
so far away

heal her soul
and carry her my angel
ohio

green green green
what about the sweetness we knew
what about what's good, what's true
from those days

can't count
to all the lovers i've burned through
so why do i still burn for you
i can't say

sorry that
i could never love you back
i could never care enough
in these last days

heal her soul
and carry her my angel
ohio

children blessed
gather round the home she rests
so poor and cold in their midwest
moon and sun

flashes bringing on
my open eyes to lightning storm
the touch of mist felt soft, felt warm
on my face

graving dreams
a million miles ago you seem
the star that i just don't see
anymore

words long gone
lost on journeys we walked on
lost her voice is heard along
the way

sorry for
never going by your door
never feeling love like that
anymore

heal her soul
and carry her angel
ohio

thanks to sadreminders for the lyrics.
how was your sleep?

  1. Revisiting some old posts and came across this little gem. It's included on the CD you made me, but it has yet to make it to my iPod. That's going to change.

    What a beautiful song.
