about

Imagine curling up in a rocking chair in a Smoky Mountain cabin in late fall. A week in that rocking chair ... just me and my guitar and my wounded heart ... thinking of all the stories that I have told myself. We are all the sum of our stories. I am ready to write new stories, but before I could get to that point, I had to write this.

Myth Addict
© LaMonte 10/2018

I’m a myth addict – Tell myself stories
Over and over until I believe
The facts, they don’t matter
It’s the story I’m after
I get high on these threads I weave

I am a princess runs with dragons
I am a kind and benevolent king
I am the madman come from the forest
I am the wizard who knows everything
I am the drunk in the alley so broken
And I am the child who does everything wrong
Your stories and mine are so sweetly entwined
You hear yourself in my songs

I’m a myth addict – Tell myself stories
Over and over until I believe
The facts, they don’t matter
It’s the truth that I’m after
I get high on these threads I weave

I am three sisters in search of their fortune
I am the secret that no one can tell
I am the fool and uncomfortable laughter
I am three witches and I am the spell
I close my eyes and I see the faces
Remember places that I’ve never been
I am the hero and I am the villain
And I am the truth that lies in between

I’m a myth addict – Tell myself stories
Over and over until I believe
The facts, they don’t matter
It’s the story I’m after
I get high on these threads I weave

I’m a myth addict threadin’ that needle
Twistin’ and turning, blood and bone deep
I’m a myth addict – Tell myself stories
Over and over until I believe

Over and over
I’ll make you believe
