So close and yet so far awayAnd all the things I'd hoped to sayWill have to go unsaid todayPerhaps until tomorrowYour fear has built a wall betweenOur lives and all what lovin' meansWill have to go unfelt it seemsAnd that leaves only sorrowYou built your tower strong and tallCan't you see it's got to fall some dayYou close your eyes and speak to meOf faith and love and destinyAs distant as eternity,Truth and understandingThe wind blows cold outside your doorIt whispers words I've tried beforeBut you don't hear me anymoreYour pride's just too demandingThe end is coming soon, it's plainA warm bed just ain't worth the painAnd I will go and you'll remainWith the bitterness we tastedA mother's breast, a newborn childA poet's tear, and drunken smileCan't help thinkin' all the whileTheir meaning won't be wasted

Townes was such a fragile genius. Completely broken and completely beautiful. Just gorgeous -- and true -- music.

Townes' music is sincere and sad, some of it devastating, but it's also incredibly smart; I feel like I've gained awareness and intelligence just listening to his reflections - which, however dark the place they come from is, contain a great deal of wisdom.

I checked him out on Youtube , and yes he is something special. He has created a monster inside me. Yet i found him through Devil Makes Three, Youtube them. They just as addictive.

What a beautiful song, video, and collection of photos of this wonderful poet-songwriter. Talk about having soul. Townes had it in spades....or clubs or diamonds...whatever hand he was playing! This is one of my favorite Townes tunes...although I have way too many to call one the best.
