For what it’s worth, I heard and appreciated your lyrics the first time I heard the song. I can’t remember where I first heard the song, but I was struck by the irony of those lyrics ringing out unacknowledged in the midst of some party.
I’m someone who notices lyrics worth noticing, and I’m also someone for whom the message in the lyrics is very resonant. Let’s just say I misspent some years burning my inner candle from several different ends.
It’s a beautiful song, and I hope it keeps getting play, and I hope people hear the warnings implied in the lyrics. Thank you for singing about the truth.
