And I can’t breathe
So open a window
So close it again
You say: It hurts when I do this
So why in the Hell would you do that
This silence is killing me
But it isn’t as hard as the fall
My pillar to stand on
And I don’t know, I don’t know…
This is my pillar to stand on…
This is my pillar to stand on
From Pillars by Allison Crowe
Note: As an admirer of Leonard Cohen, I find the thoughts expressed in the lyrics of Allison Crowe’s Pillars are, if not Cohenesque, then certainly Cohen-congruent.
Pillars by Allison Crowe and Band is scheduled for release May 1, 2020.
