about

Original song by Joyce Todd McBride

lyrics

Love is a story that changes in the telling
In the mouth of the wolf, in the belly of the whale

And it's love that has eaten whatever is missing
and this is a test, and this is a blessing.
Love is a punishment of roses that bloom
only at midnight when no one is looking

Love is perfect like an uncommitted crime
as long as you do nothing but think about it all the time
You press your lips together it's the sea on which you sail
But you want to be the wind so you can rip the veil

Love is sour, bitter, salty, sweet
Love knocks you over, and lands you on your feet
history remembers and the memory forgets,
Love just leaves you alone with no regrets

Love is a story that changes in the telling
In the mouth of the wolf, in the belly of the whale.
