If you forget my love, I’ll try to remind you…

Tonight we went to see Patty Griffin at ZooTunes for Autumn’s birthday. She has saved me over and over again with her music making. When she played this song, I lost it, rocking Autumn back and forth and secretly crying into my sweatshirt and singing into her ear.

It felt so much like the future for some reason. If I could only keep her as close to me as she is now. This letting go and letting them grow into their own person thing is so freakin’ hard.

“When It Don’t Come Easy”

Red lights are flashing on the highway
I wonder if we’re gonna ever get home
I wonder if we’re gonna ever get home tonight
Everywhere the waters getting rough
Your best intentions may not be enough
I wonder if we’re gonna ever get home tonight

But if you break down
I’ll drive out and find you
If you forget my love
I’ll try to remind you
And stay by you when it don’t come easy

I don’t know nothing except change will come
Year after year what we do is undone
Time keeps moving from a crawl to a run
I wonder if we’re gonna ever get home

You’re out there walking down a highway
And all of the signs got blown away
Sometimes you wonder if you’re walking in the wrong direction

But if you break down
I’ll drive out and find you
If you forget my love
I’ll try to remind you
And stay by you when it don’t come easy

So many things that I had before
That don’t matter to me now
Tonight I cry for the love that I’ve lost
And the love I’ve never found
When the last bird falls
And the last siren sounds
Someone will say what’s been said before
Some love we were looking for

But if you break down
I’ll drive out and find you
If you forget my love
I’ll try to remind you
And stay by you when it don’t come easy

Forever my girl…
