My apologies to all who visit regularly. I’ll be going away this weeked, and as such all my spare time is being spent doing things that need to be done for before I leave and getting things ready for when I leave. And I work too, you know? I don’t think I’ll ever get used to saying that.

But, as you might have noticed, others have been doing a swell job of holding up the fort. Much thanks.

I’ve been listening to Dave Matthews Band’s The Central Park Concert over the last few days. Very nice album. Anyway, this is not from the album, but it too is very nice. Maybe I’ve posted it before.

The Space Between

Dave Matthews Band

You cannot quit me so quickly

There’s no hope in you for me

No corner you could squeeze me

But I got all the time for you, love

The space between

The tears we cry

Is the laughter keeps us coming back for more

The space between

The wicked lies we tell

And hope to keep safe from the pain

But will I hold you again?

These fickle, fuddled words confuse me

Like ‘Will it rain today?’

Waste the hours with talking, talking

These twisted games we’re playing

We’re strange allies

With warring hearts

What wild-eyed beast you be

The space between

The wicked lies we tell

And hope to keep safe from the pain

Will I hold you again?

Look at us spinning out in

The madness of a roller coaster

You know you went off like a devil

In a church in the middle of a crowded room

All we can do, my love

Is hope we don’t take this ship down

The space between

Where you’re smiling high

Is where you’ll find me if I get to go

The space between

The bullets in our firefight

Is where I’ll be hiding, waiting for you

The rain that falls

Splash in your heart

Ran like sadness down the window into

The space between

Our wicked lies

Is where we hope to keep safe from pain

Take my hand

‘Cause we’re walking out of here

Right out of here

Love is all we need here

The space between

What’s wrong and right

Is where you’ll find me hiding, waiting for you

The space between

Your heart and mine

Is the space we’ll fill with time

The space between
