So beautiful, right? Have you heard both songs Ellen did with us? Very different but both gorgeous! https://www.hookist.com/music-hookist/

I love the song! I do think that some fiddle would definitely add to it. I also have to say that I really looked forward every day to seeing all of the lyric submissions. There are a lot of deep thinkers out there. I also looked forward to your videos Ellen, although no matter how I try I can’t seem to erase the memory of you making out with your coffee cup. Thanks for that.
this is such a great song !!! beautiful , i’ve listened to it like a bazillion and one times now. would love to hear a fiddle!! this has been such an amazing experience and thank you so much for the shout outs and for choosing one of my lyrics !! you’re an amazing artist !! hilarious ,thin and pretty 🙂
Hi Ellen – I am loving the song and really enjoying the ‘Hookist’ experience. Thank you for my lovely shout outs – you have been most kind. Although you do keep referring to me as ‘her’ – Whilst this should not bother me as gender does not really matter – I am at the moment sporting a rather handsome beard and am looking at my most masculine. So I am a he…..or maybe a hairy she…… or maybe a…

ABAB can be nice in lyrics, though I’m thinking that it can be tricky in this system of submissions coming in line by line. If people have unlimited choices it is actually more limiting than if they just make their own rhymes. Know what I mean? It seems the majority of lines that come in are rhyming couplets.

Its tricky for me…as in…Ive never written songs without being with the person – to work things out personally. This is an experience though. I’m used to working out a riff with the band…jamming on it for a little bit…and having a melody and sometimes lyrics come to me right then and there….so this is a great exercise for people that aren’t used to writing this way. 🙂

I agree with you Kathryn. It is an honour to have a line ‘chosen’ to be used in a song by an accomplished artist. For me this is a real learning experience and often, trying to fit my thoughts into a defined number of syllables is not an easy task. Also, Mary Gauthier is quite a song writer and Kathryn, you have a few good licks of your own. Looking forward to seeing more from you!
