hi friends,

portraits in the film by Mike Disfarmer.
hope y'all feel for the song some.
best,

WHERE DID I BEGIN

you'll find me there
between the circle and the square
and what i don't plunder
i'm gonna strip bare
like a desert longs for the rain
i'm a mirror, shining
through a dark window pane

you'll find me under
a circle at night
beneath a pale moon
that won't give up its light
like a prisoner, looks for the key
i'm a halo
and you can't see me

like a rhombus
i live on the side
like a drunkard
with nowhere to hide
lay me down, lay me out
lay me down
turn me inside and out
of this shape, that i'm in
o where
did I begin

you'll find me there
between the circle and the square
you'll find me there
between the circle and the square
in this shape, that i'm in
oh where
did I begin
 
Great song. Tom Waits should buy it. Love that rhombus line.
 
Beautiful song, jon. Great lyrics!
