My Dear My Doubt

lyrics

Where are you when I need you
To watch me struggle through
Not to save me
I can swim
Just to bear a witness to
A moment made all the sweeter with you

Can't remember how it felt
When you were my best bet
That's a lie
I should have said
That I really can't forget
A moment made ever bitter with you

There's a line but it bends
Where it smudges
Where it fades
An illusion drawn between us
And a memory over-played
Find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt
Go and find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt

Thought that you could weather it
From one state to the next
But it's harder than it looks
When you've got your every muscle flexed
A moment made out on a tether with you

There's a line but it bends
Where it smudges
Where it fades
An illusion drawn between us
And a memory over-played
Find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt
Go and find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt

‘Cause there's a line but it bends
Where it smudges
Where it fades
An illusion drawn between us
And a memory over-played
Find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt
Go and find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt

Go and find a way around it if you can
Go and find a way around it if you can
You can find a way around it if you can, my dear
But I have my doubt
Oh I have my doubt

My dear, my doubt
My dear, my doubt
My dear, my doubt
My dear, my doubt

Leslie Hudson Stratford, Ontario

Leslie Hudson is what happens when Tori Amos and Loreena McKennitt swap set lists. She sings about the paths women walk through life and myth and media. A mistress of the keys, powerhouse vocalist and evocative storyteller, she is the synthesis of influence and invocation, a sonic tapestry of vulnerable ferocity pursuing equity in all its forms. ... more
