about

I wrote "May You Be" almost exactly a year ago, while I was in Paonia, Colorado. The snow was deep, and I was welcomed by strangers to make and share my art. I was so moved, and grateful. So this is a love song for that community. It's a song of what I want for the world, and for each of you.

Thank you all for being here. So grateful to have you at my shows, to see you around town, to see you in my feeds, and that you're here with me on this musical journey.

Please consider joining my Patreon to receive this song, and to keep up with me on my musical adventures.

lyrics

May you be happy
May you be Heart broken
May you be heartier than you ever thought you could be

May you be playful
Well rested and may you be grateful
May you be resilient in the face of adversity

May you be may you be, may you be
Right here with me...

May you be full of good food
In a good mood when the world is rude
Shutting down on your dreams may you find an opening

May you feel sexy
In the way you want with whoever you please
May you practice the fine art of vulnerability

May you be may you be, may you be
Right here with me...

May we all fight for justice
Muster up the courage we must
To keep the garden growing after we turn to dust

May you be present
May you listen to your body
May you shiver at the sight of a red wood tree

May you be may you be, may you be
Right here with me...

May you take long walks
With strangers you meet in coffee shops
May you speak your truth and speak it honestly

May you be may you be, may you be
Right here with me...
