Mary Chapin Carpenter: Between Here And Gone

“I thought a light went out,

but now a candle shines

I thought my tears wouldn’t stop,

but then I dried my eyes

And after all of this,

the truth that holds me here

is that this emptiness

is something not to fear”

    Beautiful song and meaningful words. Femme A La Guitare is very colourful as well as reflective.

  2. I never knew who Mary Chapn Carpenter was. I watched the video and enjoyed it. She has a powerful voice and plays the guitar well. I often play my guitar and sing for my own pleasure.

    1. I didn’t know you could sing and play guitar, Ally! 😎 What is your favorite music for playing? Mary Chapin Carpenter is new to me, also – a poet and story teller with such a unique voice. Thanks for visiting, Ally! ❤️

      1. I enjoy a variety of music. My favourites would be John Denver, The Carpenters, Abba, Seekers. I enjoy country music, most of the songs have been written about life experiences . Music is so good for the soul especially singing. I hope to join a choir this year. 🙂
