A haunting bolero sets the scene of alcohol-numbed, claustrophobIc depression after a break-up. 1st-place winner in Jazz Category, 2006 International Songwriting Competition.


Oh, hello, it’s you
Won’t you please come in
I hope you’ll pardon me not answering the door
I’ve just been sitting in the dark again

Here, let me light the lamp
Won’t you have a seat
Please pour yourself a drink; there’s a bottle here somewhere
I’d get up, but as you see, I’m not too steady on my feet

But yes, I’m doing fine
Why, do I seem a little strange
I guess it takes a little time to find your way again
When all the scenery has changed

But thanks for dropping by
Won’t you come again, and soon
But in truth, I know I probably won’t be seeing you again
There’s no use hanging ‘round
When love has left the room


from Myths & Fables, released November 3, 2007
