I like Kate Walsh. I like her a lot. In fact, I like her so much that I'm really not sure how she didn't rate a top spot in my Songbirds of 2007 list. It was a tough call to begin with but I think she was just narrowly edged out by Meiko in the end. So anyway, I like her a lot and she's been a good friend of mine the past few days as I've been contemplating whether or not to tell someone something that I was pretty certain was going to damage them. That's never a good place to be...to be in the position of having to tell someone something that you know is going to hurt them and yet something that totally has to be said because they either demand to know, deserve to know or both. And so as I took the great personal risk of telling this person who both demanded and deserved to have his questions answered, I thought of how often they hadn't been honest with me and how their dishonesty had wounded me over the years and thought that if I had to finally hurt them, I might as well hurt them with the truth. The truth is ALWAYS preferable to a lie...always. Even when it hurts.
But I digress...I shant be giving any life lessons tonight. I'm in the process of learning some big ones myself at the moment so doling out words of wisdom is probably the LAST thing I should be doing. I think you have to have some pretty hefty initials after your name before anyone takes you seriously about life advice anyway, right?
So...Kate Walsh...yeah. I've been listening to her and liking her and growing to love her the past few days so I wanted to share. So, here. This is me...sharing.
Kate Walsh - "Bury My Head"
Kate Walsh - "Don't Break My Heart"
Kate Walsh - "French Song"
Kate Walsh - "Is This It?"
And a nice little video of Kate performing "Tonight" (probably my favorite track from the album Tim's House where you can find all these ditties) courtesy of YouTube:
And I don't care about the girl behind you
And I don't know what it is about you
It makes me want to run and jump inside you
Cause you don't know about me,
And you don't care how this affair will break me.
And why should I care about you, if you don't care,
You don't care if I love you?
