These beautiful lyrics were written by my lovely and talented Water Sister, Carmen Castro (silentkry). She writes lyrics, poetry & songs, stories & novels but is most well known for being the amazing keyboard player in Elliot Schneider's awesome band!
When I saw these lyrics she posted on Twitter I immediately "heard" the music and asked if I could record it! Thankfully she said "Yes!"
I am a huge fan of short songs so this one delights me! I have always loved the short songs Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull would write and then fit between the more complex compositions. These jewels often touch me more than songs 5 times their length!
And so it is with this song. Thank you Carmen for writing such a gem and for allowing me to add music to it! <3
Mender Of Broken Hearts
So carefully he works
As he attempts to repair
Those with broken hearts
Reeling in despair
Some he cannot fix
The damage too severe
Yet try he will anyway
To make love appear
