There’s crazy people in the city and I do not feel so safe
There’s times my heart is feeling heavy and I’m tired of this state
There’s times my heart aches for the garden my grandmother used to tend
A pile of dirt beneath the willow where my afternoons were spent

All these people mean no evil, it’s just they have not been taught
That the books we are not reading make for emptiness of heart
That the bodies we are given are the ones we have to love
It’s a gift that keeps on giving, so we’re never giving up

And we need good things, and we need good things

And all things considered, what we do with our lives
The memories are bitter and sweet as cherry wine

And we need good things, and we need good things

Ben Hermanski is an observer, a sensitive writer. A finder of melodies both engaging, catchy and familiar; a teller of stories both true and remote at the same time.

He keeps his eyes closed on stage, because these moments are for giving. To you.
