Have you ever seen an musical artist do a concert in someone's living room? It's a pretty cool experience. Last Saturday night, I went with a couple of friend to see a woman named Terra Naomi sing and play for a couple of hours at Paul's House in Potero Hill in San Francisco. There were probably only about 25 people there total. 

She was really quite good. Much better than I would have expected. There's something about seeing an artist live though, it's almost always better than hearing a recording or even seeing the video. Don't you think?

Her song's are pretty heavy on the smart-and-rather-angry-young-woman-done-wrong-or-otherwise-suffering side, which I have nothing against, I just preferred some of her more positive and poignant ones like the one below.
 


You For Me

I wanna make enough money
To run my life
From the top of a mountain
In the dead of night
It’ll be you and me
And a couple of dogs
And the rest of the world
Can just move on
Cuz i got what i want
And i got what i need
And there’s nothing
In this world
But you
For me

And there’ll be fish in the lake
And there’ll be chickens on the lawn
And we’ll never go to sleep
And i’ll never even yawn
And you’ll tell me lots of stories
About when i was old
And i wasn’t too much fun then
From all the stories i been told
Now i got what i want
And i got what i need
And there’s nothing
In this world
But you
For me

And all the those little things we like to talk about
All those little things we like to say
Nothing even matters at all
‘cept for how we live today

And we can sit up on the mountain
I can hold your hand
And we’ll forget all that we learned
And we’ll forget our plans
And we can see things clearly
In the absence of the light
And we’ll realize there’s nothing
More than this tonight
And i got what i want
And i got what i need
And there’s nothing
In this world
But you
For me
