about

"Goddess" is for Ashley Brown, Bekah Kelso, and Ginger Doss, partially inspired by the mass of lovely women who work in coffee shops in Austin, Texas. I wrote "Goddess" in the space of about five minutes, sitting in Ginger and Bekah's apartment in South Austin, on a beautiful January day, almost alarming myself with the simple, jazzy, pop songness that was emerging from my body.

This is how it is: the vast majority of gorgeous girls in this world go through their lives never knowing how truly beautiful they are, because people are afraid of telling them. Don't be afraid to tell people when they look good, and don't be afraid of hearing it from others about yourself, either!

lyrics

I'm in love with the goddess who lives down the street
I've got clouds on my agenda and a spring in my feet
and I wonder if she knows.
I am smiling at strangers like I usually will
like a cat with a canary who will surely fit the bill
and I wonder if she knows
What am I thinking? I've got too much to do!
I've got no time to go running after dreams or chasing after you,
but there's this sleepy sense that everything's gonna work out right.
May I visit you tonight? Starlight, star bright!

I am in love with the goddess who lives down the street
The girl may work at Waffle House, but she doesn't miss a beat
so I wonder if she'll hear what I propose.
I just wanna make her happy, no, I don't wanna lay a claim
If there's damage to be done, I am no good at taking blame
and I wonder if she knows.

I am in love with the goddess who lives down the street
I've got clouds on my agenda and a spring in my feet
and I wonder what she knows, if she knows!
I could always buy her coffee, but she'd see straight through the ploy.
I'd love to walk beside her in the place of all those boys,
and I wonder if she knows.
