    "Soft Shoulder" Lyrics

    Ani DiFranco

    i don't keep much stuff around
    i value my portability
    but i will say that i have saved
    every letter you ever wrote to me
    the one you left on my windshield
    outside of that little motel
    is in the pocket of my old gig bag
    from back when life was more soft shell

    letters littered with little lewd pictures
    drawn by the ghost of woody guthrie
    who would use you big thick hand

    just to draw one or two for me

    i think of your letters as love letters
    which is how i think of songs
    in that it is the writing of them
    that tends to carry us along
    and i danced to one of your old tunes
    with my true love on our wedding day
    and you voice sang the way my heart would sing
    if it finally knew just what to say

    two people pulled over on the same night
    to look up at the same stars
    they both found their wheels were spinning
    in a soft shoulder
    when they both got back into their cars
    and they missed fates appointed rendezvous
    and then a whole lotta time wnet by
    and then one day they were done
    worshipping the landscape
    and they just put down their hands
    and moved into the sky

    they had barely said hello and it was time to say goodbye
