about

Galatea (once a statue, now a woman) explains her feelings about hero/romantic worship and keeping people on pedestals.

lyrics

Your body is growing on me
I’m getting so close that I can’t breathe
Your body is growing
We keep on growing older...
I’ve set myself up to fail
Always cutting the wind from my sails
I’ve set up myself
Built up myself for permanent winter...

All the sheets are cold in my neighborhood
And it’s not worth it anymore to stand where I’ve stood
White is the color of marble, powder and bone
My pedestal was raised to high and I’m tired of this throne

When did these boys all get so bold
Barely out of their mother’s mould
I don’t wanna hurt you, babe
But I’m not a goddess I am man-made...
So you can touch me if you’d like
I am the statue coming to life
I am not perfect and that’s not fair
But it still happens so I don’t care...

My maker carved my eyelids see-thru
And even when I close them tight, I can’t shield from the beauty of you
As stone is constant, so am I
Even with this ancient heart you come as a surprise
Come as a surprise...

Dogwood Seattle, Washington

Hailing from the hedge and loam of Seattle's undergrowth, this chimerical songbird aims to weave historical and wax hysterical in the old-new traditions of mountain men, shantymen, and her fellow men as she tromps and twirls acro'st both ancient myth and accidental malady. This little troubadour delights in bringing life to the voices of the past, so come and share a pomegranate seed or two! ... more
