Song of the Day 3,116: ‘Godspeed’ – Jenny Lewis

acidtongueJenny Lewis’ 2014 album The Voyager was my second-favorite album of that year and in my top ten for the decade so far. Just mentioning it here has me wanting to cue it up in my car — I think I’ll do that.

Despite my love for that album, I haven’t spent a lot of time revisiting Lewis’ other solo efforts, including 2008’s Acid Tongue, on which today’s Random SOTD appears. My guess is I’d appreciate this album even more in light of The Voyager.

No good, no how, no man should treat you like he do
So come on right now, it’s time for you to get up and out of his house
I’ve known you too long to let you carry on this way
When I was in bad shape I’ll never forget what you always used to say

What are we going to do with you?
You don’t make it easy on me
What am I supposed to do with you
If you won’t let me help you, won’t you?

Godspeed
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Put out the light
And hope that I make it alive

There’s no telling what he’ll do
I wouldn’t want him to hurt you in that way
Things you don’t say reach me somehow anyway

What are we going to do with you?
You don’t make it easy on me
What am I supposed to do
If you won’t let me help you, why won’t you?

Godspeed
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Put out the light
And hope you make it alive

Godspeed
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
Keep the lighthouse in sight
Godspeed to you
