Sarah Jarosz: “Song Up In Her Head”

Written by June 21st, 2010 at 3:36 pm

The Virgin Mary
All dressed in blue
Sings “My First Lover”
For an audience of two

The New York boy
All dressed in black
Old leather boots
Old souls in tact

Time moves forward
And time moves back
Like a mixed up engineer
On an endless railroad track

Miles to go
From me to you
From a town that gets old
To the city that’s new

This flame burns brighter
With every poem read
This bird flies higher
With a song up in her head

Time moves slow
And time moves fast
Oh the future now
Will soon be past

    these lyrics are simply excellent, and inspired me to leave my first comment on this site. honestly, most of the time i just delete the “lyric of the week” emails in disgust and sadness.

    this song really stood out, and i wanted to congratulate you on writing it. good luck with your music!
