lyrics

if the tsunami were to hit
a year or two from now
me on the road you here at home, i would be orphaned
i would hole up in pittsburgh
california with my last friends
i would be haunted by the ocean

& still alive, i would scatter myself across the sea
in hopes that the particles that once were you & me
would find each other

& on the shores of fire island
i will find religion in your breath
& i won't know how or why or what it means
but it will be all there is for me
& that's why you can't leave
confiscate your car & legs but it wouldn't work

love you so much that it hurts
love you so much that it hurts
love you so much that it hurts

& in the morning, trapped inside our offices like ghosts
cement, across long island, connecting us somehow beneath our feet

if the tsunami were to hit
the middle of last night
so much to lose, so much left undone
but we would be each other's last words
bodies tangled up in the water
trapped inside this room for years
correct for the explorers

love you so much that it hurts
love you so much that it hurts
love you so much that it hurts

rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
