lyrics

The Honey Dewdrops - Guitars

we are born unto our own
sapling seeds from old growth
raised up tall and cut down low
so we are, and so we go

turned from home, handled, and hauled
shaped and sanded, bent and sawed
many hands and many years gone
write every one our songs

play we all
true songs
we sing them right
we sing them wrong
tuned up tightly
and passed along
like old guitars
we breathe
songs

long to be held in arms
and loved and played by heart
days of light and days of dark
all resolve the broken parts

hands of old, hands of young
hands of gentle, hands of rough
every one with a song to teach
some sing pain, some sing peace

play we all
true songs
we sing them right
we sing them wrong
tuned up tightly
and passed along
like old guitars
we breathe
songs

upon our faces many lines show
traces of time like pen strokes
words and changes and passing notes
and scars where the skin broke

play we all
true songs
we sing them right
we sing them wrong
tuned up tightly
and passed along
like old guitars
we breathe
songs

we breathe songs

about

The Honey Dewdrops Baltimore, Maryland

Laura Wortman and Kagey Parrish share more than most couples. As the Honey Dewdrops, they share stages from performance venues to festivals across North America, stretches of rolling, infinite roadway, and a lot of songs; they share one mic and a hunger to pay attention to what endures.
Seven years of touring and 5 albums later, Laura and Kagey continue to write and share songs and push forward.
