DBT #184 Monday Morning Song - The Roses by Emily Johnson-Erday
Good Morning, I'm going to bring you to a textured reality of colors and choices. Emily Johnson-Erday put out a pair of what she describes as intimate songs pondering choice, loss and loneliness. While I could apologize for the morning downer, I look at the pondering part of this world. She brings you for a walk in a world of colors and nature, to let you wonder exactly what bringing the roses down means exactly.
This is a beautiful song, but I highly request you read the words as you listen. That extra connection will gently place the thoughts in your head for the rest of the day.
I count the days since I last missed it Cause lately I’ve been getting sickness, Every morning when the moonlight fades, Into the light of day But I don’t want to be a harbor For a man who comes and goes Leaving nothing but an empty chair And the scent of his clothes So- Cedar red, cohosh blue Wild thistle and cotton root The saints won’t answer when I call And so I call on you To bring the roses down Bring the roses down Bring the roses down Make this tea, don’t be a mother Drink it down, try to forget But if I drink this bitter water Will I only taste regret? Or - Cedar red, cohosh blue Wild thistle and cotton root The saints won’t answer when I call And so I call on you To bring the roses down Bring the roses down Bring the roses down Ophelia had Rue and Pansy Pennyroyal, Fennel and Tansy Rosemary, and Queen Anne’s lace Wild Myrtle, and Herb-o’-Grace, And - Cedar red, cohosh blue Wild thistle and cotton root The saints won’t answer when I call And so I call on you I will not be silent I will not be chaste I cannot make a life If it means mine goes to waste I will - Bring the roses down Bring the roses down Bring the roses down
This would not be my first go to because of the song quality outside, but after you know the song, here's Emily singing it.
This one sound is a little better and it has the new group The Starlight Darlin's that have made the blog before, and you know I love those harmonies.
