From the album I Think I Am

This song describes life, after impact. It sings out against racism, abuse, neglect, being disenfranchised and left alone.
Played with one strong voice, and one gutsy guitar that takes a bassy tone that really sets the theme "not every story ends well." Lyrics cut deep into relationships gone messy, and blurry social lines where "you are here" is not always an easy "X" to find. Back of My Hand is a power full lonely song, that lets you know you are not alone.

Lyrics

This page of my life,
ink stained, blurring
colors cry
but don't ask why I made them,
do I.

Found a lock of your hair,
cut away while you held my hand,
I understand the season's changing.

Whatever went away,
at least had the chance to stay.
Oh I, I wrote your name today,
on the back of my hand.

Gone away in the night.
Running straight into
colored lines,
these broken times connect us,
don't they.
Don't they scar our skin
while the ink settles in.
Staining like a sin
on the back of my hand.

I can't chose the way
that you let my
thoughts remain,
if you blame them for your sorrow.

Let it scar my skin,
while the ink settles in.
Staining like a sin on the
back of my hand.
On the back of my hand.

Gone away in the night.
Running straight into colored lines,
these broken times connect us,
don't they.

I could not make you stay.
The ink began to fade, oh but I,
I felt your touch today.
I know so well this pain.
Like the back of my hand.
The back of my hand.
