subject: [ig-news] soon to be nothing

[sherlyn's note: this message was originally sent to the indigo
girls mailing list at  not news, but...]

actually, i don't think these have been posted before, so i've tried to
figure 'em out.  (?) means i'm not sure if what i've written is correct,
and -- means there's a word or two that i am at a loss to figure out.

count(?) the mountain road, saw the heavy load
with the sagging heart, and they'll break apart
voices in release(?), stood as thick as theives
with no sympathy, for the beggar's art(?)

- - pass these crimes, bout a million times
now i grab the wheel, fear is what i feel
- -----, ----of me

and you tell me it's temporary, just a matter of time
by god, don't you think i know it's in my mind
and it's right over left, healin the -
i'll soon be nothing, but i don't know when

well the way i flee, on my crooked feet
- --happy horse, on a one track course
and i self-despise, crying out my eyes
cause the happy trail, led me to remorse
but the road is long, and the song is gone
i grow empty in my - shell
if i saw the choice, i might find my voice
but i don't know when, and i just can't tell


deep behind my face, is a safer place
but the gears are hitched tight to the gate
it's a daily grind waiting to unwind
till i hear the click that unlocks my fate

- ------------------------------------------------------------------
this is a scarier song than i first thought.  does anyone know what this
was written about?  hopefully emily didn't write it about herself -
sounds like someone she knew was in an accident and had suicidal
thoughts.  any info anyone?
