For Emahoy Tsegué​-​Maryam Guèbrou

lyrics

I don't want to mispronounce her name
Emahoy Guebrou is an Ethiopian composer
She plays the piano in a monastery in Jerusalem now
The way she plays the piano
Affects me in a way
It affects me in such a way that
I wish I'd gone to DC to see her back in '08
But I didn't know of her then
And I listen so often
