Valentine 03:01
Will you be my valentine Hold my hand and call you mine We can learn to dance together Under blue skies and in fair weather Will you stay when night has gone Make the coffee mow the lawn Unbrushed teeth and unkept hair Perhaps you'll leave to get fresh air Babies crying in the night Unwashed dishes they start a fight Photographs of unlived dreams Remember how we thought it would be Will you talk till three with me Balance budgets climb a tree Under grey skies when it rains Sometimes it seems this is in vain Would you be my valenine Can we stand the tests of time Would you reach across the rift If I get out my sewing kit

You bring the flowers And I'll bring the tea Good old fashioned Like you and me Under the rain We'll discuss broken dreams Till night breaks open Revealing the trees We first walked seeking solace From moments falling stars can't wish away What we found was a place where Black and white unite with grey We never knew How far we could run Till the future was calling With notice to foot the bill So we ran Till all we could see Was a shadow fortelling The past that we had won And we ran And she ran And I ran away We first walked seeking solace From moments falling stars can't wish away What we found was a place where Black and white unite with grey You bring the paper And I'll bring the pen All that I own Is who I have been

Free 04:01
I want to be with the sun and the green With the wild things beneath my feet Then I can forget the cold night that you left And remember what used to be When we were free When we were free When we were free When we were free Free to forget what it's like on this planet Where all of the strong things break When we were free like children With minds still at ease too young naive to see When they were free When they were free When they were free When they were free Free to love others like no one is watching and Free to believe when we were Free from the burden of knowledge If they had not eaten of that tree Would we be free Would we be free Would we be free Would we be From the heartache the binds The cold that blinds The fear that tomorrow It's more than we can bear Free of the war zones A place to call home Beyond conflict's reach Would we be free Would we be free Would we be free Would we be free If we could choose it I want to be with the sun and the green With the wild things beneath my feet Then I can remember a warmer November When we were free

Umbrella 03:59
We've been waiting here For far too long our shoes are wet Waiting for this rain to pass us by I can see the storm clouds rolling in Lightening illuminates your trembling chin I'm an umbrella and they are the rain on a stormy day I'll stand with you keeping us from drowning The world keeps throwing all she's got at you I'll be the place where you can dry your wet shoes We've been standing here For far too long the chill's set in Wishing we could come across a dry spell I'll wait with you till rain filled skies are blue I'll help you build the home you cannot ask for I'm an umbrella and they are the rain on a stormy day I'll stand with you keeping us from drowning The world keeps throwing all she's got at you I'll be the place where you can dry your wet shoes

Walls 04:41
Yellow walls Stained glass sunset Late night fires In the woods Dirty hands Grandmothers garden If she were here To see this mess Hold on Hold on To these walls Unmade beds Chickens laughing Empty souls Fill the old farmhouse August days Hot humid tension Broken mirrors l Line the walls Hold on Hold on To these walls One more word Typewriter tapping Lies poured out For us to see I said goodbye September’s mourning Black beauty left One last time Hold on Hold on To these walls Their witness will live When we’re gone And so I hold on Please hold on Hold on

200 03:23
200 miles Across the room I’ll sit with you I’ll leave at noon 200 times I said goodbye But now I know That i’ll never be home People grow cold And I grow old Watching memories fade As you drain the bottle And I turn to walk away Away As I turned I turned 200 years Away from you If this is love Than I never knew you People grow cold And I grow old Watching memories fade As you drain the bottle And I turn to walk away Away As I turned I turned Stale whiskey and cigarettes Cling to your breath Stale whiskey and cigarettes Still cling to your breath

Love's Not 02:56
Love’s not climbing a mountain Or walking 5,000 miles It’s not whispers in the darkness Or the pounding of a heart Love’s not shunning your family Or winning in a quarrel It reaches for forgiveness Laying down all desire I’ve heard it said To love your neighbor Just as you do yourself But I neglect To look outside me To see the world beyond my door Love is like a little child Believing in the good of man Love is like a raging ocean Swallowing all fear and doubt Christ taught To love your neighbor Just as you do yourself

Winter 03:43
It’s always winter in my soul Death should turn to life But I am stuck here It’s always winter where I go The quiet of the falling snow Stares at me as I stare out my window People rushing to and fro Are made to crawl along like little children It’s always winter in my soul Death should turn to life But I am stuck here It’s always winter where I go I hear the crackling of a fireplace Imaginary snowmen fill the yard I see the treetops swaying in the breeze They shudder as they think of the spring It’s always winter in my soul Death should turn to life But I am stuck here It’s always winter where I go I sit on my yellow swing Remembering the grass that used to grow here I hope for a brighter day Where bluebirds build their nests and children play

Come Home 03:45
I don’t know if you’ll hear my words Across this spacious void Are you sleeping or you’re hiding Darling still I have to try I’m staring into silence These walls are made of fears If I speak across the distance Would you just try to hear me Darling come home to me Darling come home to me Darling come home to me Darling come home to me I’m not sure what I’ve done I’m not sure how to fix it All that I can do Is ask for your forgiveness Darling come home to me Darling come home to me Darling come home to me Darling come home to me

about

Anna p.s. Goshen, Indiana

Indie folk musician Anna p.s. conveys a sense of weariness throughout her simple but resonant songs, but it’s a weariness that keeps a blanket of hope tucked up under its chin, even as the rain keeps falling outside the windows. Grace always lurks around the corner on tunes that layer delicate vulnerability over the hearty stock of this songwriter’s spirit. ... more
