Music Mondays: Lisa Hannigan

[tweetmeme source=”stickynotestory” only_single=false http://stickynotestories.wordpress.com/]

As you all know, I’ve been having one heck of a time finishing this Fie Eoin re-write. I’ve been living in the same world, with the same characters, for months now. No visiting Phooka Tales or Book of Souls or even the Rebecca Stories. It’s draining me. But this morning I got the feeling. You know, the new character feeling. Someone’s hanging around just outside the Cafe, waiting for Elli to open the door. And when the door is opened it’s time to get to know someone new, which brings today’s song to mind.

If you haven’t heard of Lisa Hannigan you should – right now! She’s got a lovely, soft voice and brilliant lyrics. Her Sea Sew album is relaxing and wonderful to de-stress to, which I definitely need right about now. So, in honor of a new character, I give you “I Don’t Know”:

 

I don’t know what you smoke
Or countries you been to
If you speak any other languages
Other than your own, I’d like to meet you

I don’t know if you drive
If you love the ground beneath you
I don’t know if you write letters or you panic on the phone
I’d like to call you all the same,
If you want to
I am game

I don’t know if you can swim
If the sea is any draw for you
If your better in the morning or when the sun goes down
I’d like to call you

I don’t know if you can dance
If the thought ever occurred to you
If you eat what you’ve been given or you push it around your plate
I’d like to cook for you all the same
I would want to
I am game

If you walk my way, I could keep my head
We could creep away
In the dark
Or maybe now
We could shoot it down anyway

I don’t know if you read novels or the magazines
If you love the hand that feeds you
I assume that your heart’s been bruised
I’d like to know you

You don’t know if I can draw at all
Or what records I am into
If I sleep like a spoon or rarely at all
Or maybe you would do
Or maybe you would do

If you walk my way, I will keep my head
We will feel our way through the dark
Though I don’t know you
I think that I would do
I don’t fall easy at all
At all at all at all at all

If you walk my way, I will keep my head
We will feel our way through the dark
Though I don’t know you
I think that I would do
I don’t fall easy at all

    1. I’m glad you like it! I saw her perform on the Colbert Report once and thought she was amazing. I ran right out and bought the album! It’s really good 🙂

      Nice to meet you!
