There’s one thing that I’d like to know-did you ever believe the lies that you told-did you own the fool’s gold that you gave me?

11 May

Listen. Cry. I know I have.

(The lyrics if you can’t listen)

Fool’s Gold-Lhasa De Sela

You told me that you’d stay with me
And shelter me forever
That was a hard promise to keep
I can’t blame you for the bad weather

After all that has been said and done
I won’t ask you where you’re going
Don’t keep in touch, I don’t miss you much
Except sometimes early in the morning

Now use your silver tongue once more
There’s one thing that I’d like to know
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool’s gold that you gave me?

I forgive you wanting to be free
I realize you long to wander
And I sympathize with your roving eyes
I just can’t forgive your bad manners

Now use your silver tongue once more
There’s one thing that I’d like to know
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool’s gold that you gave me?
Did you ever believe the lies that you told?
Did you earn the fool’s gold that you gave me?

    Lhasa is a goddess. I was listening to her La Llorona today… there’s nothing like the pure anger and grief she sings so eloquently.

      it’s my entire marriage, in one song. I’m bawling, but it’s a good bawling. Wish I had of known of her BEFORE she died. 😦

    She is exquisite. I felt the same when I found her, about two weeks after she died… it was crushing to realize that she was gone.

      I think that makes the crying worse.
