Double-Edged Swords - Allison Crowe live-in-the-studio avec paroles

6 years ago32 views

Allison Crowe here performs "Double-Edged Swords" - a song from her most recent album/CD, release, "Spiral" - recorded in the same live-in-the-television studio session which captured Allison's piano take on Patty Griffin's "Up to the Mountain" (that video is also on Dailymotion).

Allison performed the two songs live on the super-popular culture and news magazine, "Out of the Fog", filmed in downtown St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada

Big thanks to the OotF team - Michael Fisher, Television Producer, Bruce Lane, Camera - and all the hosts and crew at Rogers television.

Double-Edged Swords
Words & Music by Allison Crowe

Going backwards on the train to France
As Germany flies by
I find myself distracted and
Wondering where and what and why

I'm running away, running faster still
Slamming into a wall
The trips that I take myself on
Always lead to a fall

So don't hurt me, well, then maybe do
Maybe just let me be
I don't want to believe in anything
And I am not sure that I am free

If anything, don't lie to me
Just to play at words
Either run, walk, or attack me
You and your double-edged swords

I don't know why I get so close
So enraged, so serious
I don't know why my lucidities
Always lead to delirious...

But, they do, oh my they do
And I delight in the blood
Now, far beneath these wings, I think,
is something less than good

So, don't hurt me, but, then, maybe do
Maybe just let me be
I don't want to believe in anything
And I am not sure that I am free

If anything don't lie to me
just to play at words
Either run, walk, or attack me
You and your double-edged swords

Now, maybe this is just my imagination
If so ignore this proclamation
Hell, now I'm filled with indignation
So please accept my resignation

I'm unpredictable, unwise at times
Dangerous in changing light
Too deep, too dark to see through
Or clear, calm and bright

So, if you think you're trouble
Honey, what does that make me
If you think you're the forest, baby
That makes me the sea

So don't hurt me, well, then, maybe do
Maybe just let me be
I don't want to believe in anything
And I am not sure that I am free

If anything, don't lie to me
just to play at words
Either run, walk or attack me
You and your double-edged swords

Don't hurt me
Maybe just a little
Maybe just let me be
I don't want to believe in anything
and, then again, I kinda do

So, if anything don't lie to me
just to play at words
Either run, walk or attack me
You and your double-edged swords

Either run, walk or attack me
You and your double-edged swords
