I have a god who
helps me see
and when I ask him
he walks on me
like a bridge that goes away
soon as I want him to stay

I have a god who
soothes my mind
and she tells me
to be more kind
to myself this very day
give myself the love I crave

and in between my
mind and me
I have forgotten
where to be
until I stop and quiet down
and I feel my god around

and I feel like I can hear for the first time
and I feel like I am here for the first time

and I have seen the
water rise
all the way up
in my eyes
and I suffer when I can
till I reach up my right hand
feel the ceiling suddenly
a presence on all sides of me

and I feel like I can cry for the first time
and I feel like I can laugh for the first time

David plays music to keep himself company. He digs records that sound like they were recorded in bedrooms and basements, and is inspired by the raw intimacy and honesty of Paul Simon, Elliot Smith, Blaze Foley and Gillian Welch.
