about

In this part of the world we've enjoyed our season for celebrating bathing suits, ice-cream, fresh berries, bicycle bells… any and all other of life’s simple joys and pleasures.

It's Autumn's turn, and the memories linger with this song video - "Circular Reasoning".

Allison is joined musically by the simpatico rhythm section of Dave Baird (bass) and Laurent Boucher (percussion). Visuals are from a 1930s French silent film that also became a talkie.

"Prix de beauté” (“Beauty Prize” aka “Miss Europe”) is directed by Augusto Genina, written by René Clair & Georg W. Pabst and stars the endlessly radiant Louise Brooks.

Sláinte!

lyrics

Circular Reasoning

Words & Music by Allison Crowe

I
am running headlong into a train

and I
would like to give this thing a name
but for now,
I am just happy to be me

and I
can't believe I just said that

'Cause I have waited
so long for something
so ridiculously simple and
I can't believe that it is this easy but it is

I am walking down this street alone
but I don't care
I don't need somewhere to belong to
not with you in my mind

ya, you just make a little home here
but only if you want to
Lord knows I'm easy now

'Cause I have waited
so long for something
so ridiculously simple and
I can't believe that it is this easy but it is

You
you're a little light in my dark
and I can see you if I try hard enough
and while I work
to leave the life I led before
I realize I ran away
just so I could stay
but maybe with you somewhere, sometime

'Cause I have waited
so long for something
so ridiculously simple and
I can't believe that it is this easy but it is
