I Am Not Willing

about

This is a rather obscure Moby Grape cover. It was written by Peter Lewis. This is a song I use to perform with my cellist Matt Goeke in our quartet GIANTfingers. When this album was being assembled it took on a whole new meaning. Some people give up on life, on facing the challenges presented to them. For them, it's easier to throw in the towel. Which leads into the last track on the album...

lyrics

I AM NOT WILLING

NEVER DOUBTING
ALWAYS FAITHFULL
SHE’D RETURN

SHE SAID SHE LOVES ME
AND I COULD ALWAYS
COME TO HER

SHE CAN’T IMAGINE
HOW ANOTHER LOVER
CAN MAKE HER TURN

AND I’M SO GRATEFUL THAT I’M STILL WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

AND I’M SO GRATEFUL THAT I’M STILL WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

(SOLO)

SAID SHE LOVES ME
SHE WON’T FORGET ME
THEN SHE’S GONE

SHE THINKS THAT LATER
WE CAN PICK UP THE PIECES
AND CARRY ON

AND I’D FORGIVE HER
STILL NOT SUSPECTING
SHE COULD BE WRONG

NOW I’M SO GRATEFUL NO LONGER WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME

NOW I’M SO GRATEFUL NO LONGER WILLING
TO HAVE HER HOME
