The Ladder

Nothing real significant to say about this song and video, just that I like it and I resonate with the lyrics on some level. Sounds like he’s speaking this to another person as opposed to God, so that brings me to the idea of the importance of community in our midst. I certainly do often feel that “woe is me” and a sense of clatter between my ears often. So the song is comforting that we can leave a key and a light on for each other. Especially I think of this with my partner in life – my wife. Which of course fits better with the “gaze on you discreetly” and “preys upon you sweetly”, which I certainly resonate with you my darling. Even if we can’t always clear our minds, we have each other. Thank you for sharing life with me and putting up with me – I love you!

Andrew Belle – The Ladder

woe is me
faithless you and selfish me
i will leave a key for you outside my doorway

woe is me
one if by the land, or two by sea
so won’t you leave, for me, a light outside your doorway

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i cant clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time

Woe is me
Sentimental you and faithful me
And i will be the one to gaze on you discreetly

Slow your speed
Turn yourself around and follow me
Cause i will be the one who preys upon you sweetly

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can’t clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can’t clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time
