about

An old Jewish tale...

This song was recorded live... sort of. Actually, we had a computer glitch and had to stitch together three different takes, and then overdub the vocals because of an engineering mistake. No fixing, no pitch correction, just as honest as we could get it under the circumstances.

lyrics

I found you sleeping in the desert,
you were bleeding and your head hurt.

You could not look me in the eyes,
how did you get here, darling?
You could not look me in the eyes...

I bought some new clothes for you,
I did everything that I could, darling.
How did you get your new dress dirty?
You made love to everyone here,
You made love

You would not look me in the eyes,
how did you get here darling?
You would not look me in the eyes,
can you hear me calling?

Come on and look me in the eyes,
how did you get here, darling?
Come on and look me in the eyes,
can you hear me calling?
