about

Originally titled "Second-Hand Life" before the chorus was added.

lyrics

My wife and I bought another second‐hand couch to match our second‐hand rug and second‐hand lights. We’re building a second‐hand life, but at least we’re getting a hand somewhere along the line. She looks around and all she sees are tattered things. All bruised and bandaged, pieced and packaged to bring peace – Peace, like so many things that from day one, we’d been open about. Like our family dream. Like moving from the couch stays, the parties, and the boozing. She’d sing, “My gift is life. So, my life, I give to you. And, my song is love. That’s why I sing for you. So sleep, Sweet Babe, in peace, while I sing for you.” I’ve been painting houses and she’s been cutting hair on the side. Oh, but we still – we barely get by. Oh, but, we’re getting by. Well, in a smaller town, we might have found religion or prison by now. But, here and now, I’m pleased to lay my cheek down to her belly round and sing, “I’ll always sing for you.”
