Time Will Do The Talking :: Patty Griffin

i am a very impatient person when it comes to a lot of things: eating, reading, travelling, waiting...resolution...healing. during this entire break up process (yes, this is another blog about my relationship/break up...i'm sorry!), i have noticed myself rushing though my emotions. one minute, i'll be so terribly sad and feeling devastated, and the next i am forcing myself to not feel that way by distracting myself with surfing the internet, going out, watching movies/tv, talking to friends on the phone (for some reason, everything but my homework). i don't like this feeling. i don't like that it is taking me, what seems like, FOREVER. in reality, it will only have been 2 months this coming sunday after thanksgiving. i'd like to think that i am doing pretty well, respectively. but these last 2 months have certainly been an emotional roller coaster, and the biggest thing i keep coming back to is time. time and space. i need both of them. desperately. i have been trying to take one day at a time and to breathe, and just try to deal as best i can by doing what i feel to be best for me.

this is all excellent advice given to me by my friends and families...and by patty griffin.

this woman is amazing. i have loved her voice since i first heard her my senior year of college. i believe one of my professors told me about her and let me burn a copy of one of her cds. (sidenote: i feel like this is something that could only happen at Luther College...) anyway, it's also a song that i finally can play on the guitar and sorta sing it at the same time...so this is an amazing feat in and of itself!

anyway, the song is raw. it's real. it's honest. it's so true. i feel like this song is expressing a common lesson learned when going through the end of a relationship. i'll let you decide for yourself though...

Time Will Do The Talking::Patty Griffin
You were so cruel
I hated being your fool
So I got a little bit more mud on my face
But the years will bring a bigger scheme of things
And make a pretty memory out of my disgrace
I don't believe there is such a thing as saying too much
There are those who like to look and
Those who ain't afraid to touch

Oh baby don't you know that
Time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
I'll just find a comfy spot and wait it out
Time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
Time will tell you baby what you can't hear now

Well we dig our heels in
And wonder who's gonna win this
Who is gonna win it or wear it out
I change the locks on the door
I learn how to take a little more
I can outrun all of the devils there
But never the doubt
Try not to throw all your money into 20/20 vision
For the world won't wait on politics or indecision

Oh baby don't you know that
Time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
I'll just find a comfy spot and wait it out
Time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
Time will tell you baby what you can't hear now

Can you hear the voice inside you
Yeah it calls you back to where you belong
Oh no, can you see the one beside you
Who's been standin' there all along
Baby, well you were so cruel
I hated being your fool
So I got a little bit more
Mud on my face
But the years will bring
The bigger scheme of things
And make a pretty memory out of my disgrace

Only time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
I'll just find a comfy spot and wait it out
Time will do the talking
Years will do the walking
Time will tell you baby what you can't hear now
Time will tell you baby what you can't hear now
Time will tell you baby what you can't hear now
