i started writing a song with someone, a co-write.
it’s wild because we are doing this all virtually.
once upon a time, i would’ve never done this.
my song lyrics as of now, a letter to Theseus. you know, the myth with the damn ship that was taken apart and put back together with new pieces and the paradox that exists…..is it really the same ship? perhaps written from ariadne and their story…but just lightly drawn from their tale
————–

dear theseus

i thought that i was in love in love
but actually i’m in love with you

dear theseus

remember the night in my cocoon
the tent the tent i (wove)built for you

dear theseus

we played inside under the moon
my tent it was not waterproof

oh you took me to the waterfall
where my tears and paddles
found their call

and now i’ll
never be the same

dear theseus
oh my tent was built of vinyl sleeves
and the thread of my bohemian tees

i told you we could put up the fly
you said you wanted to see my eyes

i was simply trying to stay here
on the shore where you left me
i was simply trying to stay here
but you said you’re growing
and i know i’ve grown wings
the sun is rising

dear theseus
i thought that i was in love with love
but actually i’m in love with you
