lyrics

She’s counting on the candlelight
To shake the shadows
And to sanctify another night
Of eating dinner alone.
A couple miles from home

She’s vulnerable… Invisible
But she ain’t fragile
She’s Imperfect and impossible
She didn’t answer the phone
She’s probably already gone.

There’s something rare
In the air tonight
A certain sweetness in the southern breeze

A little worn
A little ready to fight
A little faith in what she has to believe

She reads the note
In the candlelight.
Says “you can lean on me.”

And Emma Breathes.

The boy refused to wear his shoes
He started crying
Now they’re thirty minutes late for school
She’s only trying to cope
And Keep from losing her hope

The blessing and the remedy
Evaporating
Like the harmony and trinity
And now she’s going alone
And leaving all she’s known

There’s something rare
In the air tonight
A certain sweetness in the southern breeze

A little worn
A little ready to fight
A little faith in what she has to believe

She reads the note
In the candlelight.
Says “you can lean on me.”

And Emma Breathes.

Trick Shooter Social Club Chicago, Illinois

The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
