Lyrics for Thursday


Through to Sunrise
By Nate Borofsky & Ty Greenstein


I could stand to go outside
Always keep my options wide
Never mind the blinding skies
It all will up and leave you
You could let yourself feel sad
Government make the good go bad
Broken token and a subway ad
It all will up and leave you

Keep the faith, don't toe the line,
And watch it through your two eyes
Leave the light still on inside
And watch it through to sunrise
Leave the fight and go behind
Where all the stupid fear dies
Keep the light still on inside
And watch it through to sunrise

Bowing towers kinda left me dry
Sittin' pretty in my own pigsty
A little bitty of me wanted to die
It all will up and leave you
Turn the forest to a mud-drenched road
You never tarry to carry the load
It's never funny like it's money you're owed
It all will up and leave you

You sit and watch as the watch keeps time
Treat yourself to a nursery rhyme
Making bacon just to stake your dime
It all will up and leave you
Here we are in a Brooklyn dive
At a one one two twenty-five
Take the two down from one twenty-five
And in the time we have we'll

Keep the faith, don't toe the line,
And watch it through your two eyes
Leave the light still on inside
And watch it through to sunrise
Leave the fight and go behind
Where all the stupid fear dies
Keep the light still on inside
And watch it through to sunrise

I got to spend most of the day with dementordelta! We went out for lunch at California Tortilla, where older son talked her ear off, then went for a walk at Cabin John Park, where younger son talked her ear off, then finally sent the kids off with my mother and watched Bride and Prejudice, plus the deleted scenes and extended songs. gblvr came over and we discussed important matters like which Barbie & Ken clothes would look good on which action figures from which fandoms. psu_jedi joined us and probably thinks we are completely insane. *g* Then apaulled came home and we all had pizza and drove to the Barns at Wolf Trap, where we met beeej plus beaniekins and her sister, and went to see Girlyman plus local folk group We're About 9:


Nate, Doris and Ty signing my CD cover after the concert (there are no photos allowed during concerts at Wolf Trap even without flash).


Here's Doris...


...and Nate...


...and Ty...


...and here are the three of them again.


We're About 9's Katie and Brian talking to fans after the concert.


The sun setting on the way to Wolf Trap over the Dulles Toll Road.


Girlyman does a song called "Moose in the Road" that these moose cookies, made by apaulled, and this moose trivet, given to me by dementordelta, have absolutely nothing to do with, but the real reason for them is much too complicated to explain so here they are. *g*

The concert was fantastic, as Girlyman has been every time I've seen them -- this time they did "Young James Dean" which is probably my favorite of their songs in terms of the lyrics, and they did "St. Peter's Bones," "Kittery Tide," "On the Air," "Through To Sunrise," "Speechless" and many others whose music I love. They also did the moose song, the German song and the backwards song, plus songs about Obama, Clinton and McCain of which one was funnier than the next -- "Hillary Eleison" had its charm but I think my favorite was "John McCain" to the tune of "Purple Rain." And We're About 9's Brian Gundersdorf kissed Girlyman's Nate Borofsky onstage twice, so it was all good!
