Utter despair. One of the most frightening songs Happy's ever written.

Music, lyrics, voices, instruments and arrangements - Happy Rhodes
Bob Muller - percussion
Hansford Rowe - Bass


From the album Find Me.

Fans know what this song is about, but it's very very hard to explain to others. "This world lost me back two Junes" refers to Happy's hand injury (where it was unclear if she'd ever be able to play guitar again) two years before writing the song.

Fall

In Out
In Out
(indistinct voices)

All my worries here are through
I give all my colour to you
This world lost me back two Junes
I surrender
All hope to youth

When the moon comes up
I go down
For the first time
There’s a garden deep
Deep in my heart
But it’s blossomed
For the last time

Cold is mercy
Heavy and sweet
Leaves make my blanket, root at my feet

Life is only good for the living

Time out-ran me
But sleep is forgiving

When the moon comes up
I go down
For the first time
There’s a garden deep
Deep in my heart
But it's blossomed
For the last time

Will the angels cry
Over my past
Or over my love
Bringing him moss
To remember me by

Sleep

THE SAD SONGS
Happy Rhodes is an enigma. This is according to the Music Industry, which has never been able to pigeon-hole her into any category. Her music is otherworldly yet substantial and her 4-octave voice has a haunting familiarity to it. Most listeners find her work difficult to describe and yet she incites an almost unheard of devotion among her fans. She goes from Kate Bush highs to David Bowie lows and you find yourself being beckoned to follow her into her multilayered worlds.

...this song's such a beautiful creature ...and belonging of being here. -M-
