All the girls in the Paris night
All the girls in the pale moonlight
All the girls with the shopping bags
All the girls with the washing rags

All the girls on the telephone
All the girls standing all alone
All the girls sitting on the wire
One by one fly into the fire 

Be careful how you bend me
Be careful where you send me
Careful how you end me
Be careful with me 

—Patty Griffin (Be Careful)

Patty Griffin - Cold as it Gets

I know a cold as cold as it gets
I know a darkness that’s darker than cold
A wind that blows as cold as it gets
Blew out the light of my soul
Blew out the light of my soul

Don’t bring me bad news, no bad news
I don’t need none of your bad news today
You can’t have my fear, I’ve got nothing to lose, can’t have my fear
I’m not getting out of here alive anyway
And I don’t need none of this things, I don’t need none of this things I’ve been handed

Kelly Clarkson - No Bad News [Fan Request]

Watch Patty Griffin’s dreamy, nostalgic video for “Ohio,” which artfully combines intriguing design with earnest folk music. Directed and designed by Roy Taylor, the video’s backdrop is made entirely from cut paper and pulled from the history books. Along with the beautiful paper visuals, Griffin’s video also features a special cameo from a familiar face: her beau Robert Plant, who adds harmonies to the track.

Sometimes we need to learn the lesson of letting go. This is probably life’s hardest lesson, but trust that there is great beauty in learning it.

I’ll let Patty Griffin take over from here. She says it better than I ever could.

Let Him Fly – Patty Griffin

There’s no mercy in a live wire

No rest at all in freedom

Of the choices we are given it’s no choice at all

The proof is in the fire

You touch before it moves away

But you must always know how long to stay and when to go


And there ain’t no talkin’ to this man

He’s been trying to tell me so

It took a while to understand the beauty of just letting go

‘Cause it would take an acrobat and I already tried all that

I’m gonna let him fly…
