about

This is a very personal effort, a letter to someone ending a relationship that should not have ended... at least I thought so at the time... in the end, it was a bullet dodged.

lyrics

The questions that come up when we appraise our sacred acts
don't cover all the things we know they should
And if you must believe that you're the earth and I'm the moon
then the orbit that I've chosen's just as good

To say I've never felt this way before don't even matter
it's a fact that I believe can make me strong
And though you are so clever and so present I believe
in your heart of hearts you know you can be wrong

It's not a question of who hurt who or who holds how much blame
The only answer is to drop this act now,
drop this veil and drop this game
This is an act of love
This is an act of love

I owe you and I know you and I've never fooled myself
I’ve got a sea of tears, both yours and mine, to row
You owe me explanations and can show me that you still
can be the woman I loved and got to know

It's not a question of who hurt who or who holds how much blame
The only answer is to drop this act now,
drop this veil and drip this game
This is an act of love
This is an act of love
This is an act of love
This is an act of love

"Schweitzer Projects" under the "tindog music & stuff" umbrella is producing songs in the Pop / Pop rock or folk categories ... more
