Written by Anna Horton


"Don't hang onto my words," he said, tumblin' out of my bed
Where's your conviction? Why don't you just listen?
And maybe I'll meet you half-way
Don't worry your mind with doubt,
It may take your whole life to find out that you know nothing
But in that there's something worth talkin' about

You've got a way with words I can't explain,
"It's all a bunch of lies," they cry from the sidelines

"I won't hang onto to your words no more,"
I said walkin' out the door
It was quite a lesson of useful expression in what not to do or say
And in my tactless youth, I know not where I'm goin' to
I have every reason to follow the seasons and just go where I'm blown

I've got a way of twistin' everything you say
"Oh yeah it's all a bunch of lies", they cry from the sidelines

"Don't hang onto my words," he said tumblin' out of my bed
Where's my conviction? Why didn't I just listen to what he had to say?

"Experiencing a Handmade Moments show is kind of like enjoying a spoonful of political discourse wrapped in local organic bacon and deep fried in hemp oil — and it’s all silky." - Nick Brothers, Free Weekly
