three doors down

Life in Donald Trump’s America is barely underway, and the White House is already wafting ominous Orwellian juju as the president’s spokesmen attempt to dismantle consensus reality with “alternative facts.” But if Trump’s inaugural weekend felt like a dystopian launch party, it never sounded like one. Instead of exuding an air of authority, or patriotism, or unity, or reconciliation, or hope, or menace, or anything, the hodgepodge of dim stars that Trump summoned to Washington to serenade him managed to reflect only the new administration’s incoherence. If anything, these ceremonial performances — at the inaugural balls, at a concert on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, at the inauguration itself — proved that Trump’s musical aesthetic is as confused as his politics.

Here Without You
Three Doors Down

Three Doors Down- Here Without You

But all the miles that separate
Disappear now when I’m dreaming of your face

I’m here without you baby
But you’re still on my lonely mind
I think about you baby
And I dream about you all the time
I’m here without you baby
But you’re still with me in my dreams
And tonight it’s only you and me

So hold me when I’m here
Right me when I’m wrong
Hold me when I’m scared
And love me when I’m gone
Everything I am
And everything in me
Wants to be the one
You wanted me to be
I’ll never let you down
Even if I could
I’d give up everything
If only for your good
So hold me when I’m here
Right me when I’m wrong
You can hold me when I’m scared
You won’t always be there
So love me when I’m gone
