Lyrics

Healers & Drinkers
© Jeri Katherine Howell

I come from a family of risk-takers and dreamers
Well-worn path to our home
I come from a family of healers & drinkers
With an aversion to being alone

That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall
That’s where I pick up the pieces of it all
That’s where I lean into the wind
Just watch me, I’ll come back this way again
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall

My friends love me with careful abandon
And laugh, dance, fall, fuck and move on
They take me places I have never known
Hold space that still feels like home

That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall
That’s where I pick up the pieces of it all
That’s where I scream into the night
And shatter the silence we thought I put behind
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall

My lover listens, makes beautiful wishes
Mind racin’ and never quite done
Anticipate the sound of boots on the front step
Can’t wait to be with him, can’t wait to be alone again

That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall
That’s where I pick up the pieces of it all
That’s where I whisper goodnight
I love you, and I can’t imagine life without you
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall (That’s where I rise)
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall (That’s where I rise)
That’s where I rise, that’s where I fall (That’s where I rise)
