lyrics

“Rose Window”

I wish that I could see you
like I see you sometimes
with a valley between us,
your fullness in my eyes.

But wholeness is hard to know,
the world is so up close-
Swear I still know the view,
the story from the truth.

When I can’t see the sun for the blinding
Or through the rose window for my reflection--
Lover, I know you’re kind.

How’d I come to hang,
this mirror unknowingly upon you--
Catching what I long to lose,
looking back so foolishly?

But the small, naked hours
lift if from you while you sleep,
And I know you like I want to,
without wolves in the sheets.

When I can’t see the sun for the blinding,
Or through the rose window for my reflection--
Lover, I know you’re kind.

Always trying to shake it loose,
It’s such a heavy hand to hold,
But it ain’t free not to be alone.

about

Lorain Portland, Oregon

Lorain plays woozy American music. Singer Erik Emanuelson's expressive tenor, which recalls ghosts of Nashville Skyline era Dylan and the late Jason Molina, floats over lush textures and the band's understated groove.
