"Don't go borrowin' trouble," that's what you used to say
But we don't keep in touch the way we used to nowadays
Your eyes are not as bright as I remember them to be
The light inside's grown dim and that's hard for me to see

The creases on your forehead run like treads on a tire
The white stripe runnin' through your bangs a long twisted spire
You're sweepin' up the floods and you've been vacuumin' the fires
And you lay down every night next to a goddamn liar

You may be here today, but tomorrow, you're a ghost
I guess the most someone can hope for is to find a place to lay
Someone to tell your secrets to when the nights get long and blue
Someone strong enough to lean on when the roses fall away
Strong enough to love you when you're wrong
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
Wrong

When the day is winding down, my heart abandons me for you
You forgot yourself so long ago and I wish I could too
But you live inside a quiet hell no one can pray away
Leavin' would be easy, I understand why you stay

You may be here today, but tomorrow, you're a ghost
I guess the most someone can hope for is to find a place to lay
Someone to tell your secrets to when the nights get long and blue
Someone strong enough to lean on when the roses fall away
Strong enough to love you when you're wrong
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
When you're wrong
Mm

You'd be wrong if you were thinkin' that we all don't fade away
Like dew drops in the dawn, like sun beams through the haze
It's a long way to be sinkin', holdin' tightly to the weights
Of the one who pulls you down while you slowly waste your days

Someone strong enough to love you when you're wrong
Someone strong enough to love you when you're
Wrong
When you're wrong

Ooh-ooh
When you're wrong
Ooh, ooh

Love Brandi Carlile. Go see her live if you get a chance - just saw her in Berkeley and she was phenomenal.

When Bill announced this song, I thought a new song by the lead singer from the Go Go's, this is really beautiful.  I then looked at the associated acts and the Go Go's weren't listed.

I am a moron.

Anyway, this song is lovely.



I am with you freddy, made the same goof.  The 1981 birthdate was probably a hint as well.

Such a beautiful song. Brandi is a talented song writer with a unique and beautiful voice. I would love to see RP add even more tracks of hers to the rotation!
And you lay down every night next to a goddamn liar
Listening to this, I'm struck by how similar it sounds to Mai Nahar (River Waters) by The Idan Raichel Project. Brandi's vocal tone is very close to that of Anat Ben Hamo and the guitar has the same feel in both tunes.
Hauntingly beautiful.
Just upped this to a 7.  Nice way to reach the end of the working week.  
A bit on the "heard this before" side of things but not quite ho-hum. More like meh... IMHO. Opens with a 4  from Napoli on the Gulf of Mexico.
I love everything about this. 
She's such a brilliant artist and I love everything she does.  Thanks RP for bringing us new Brandi Carlile!
First hearing - very lovely.
gave this new one by brandi an 8
A new one from Brandi? Starts with a 7...
