Knights of the Pain Table

A Camelot for Sufferers of Chronic Pain

Suffering Writes Stories for Us

Suffering writes stories for us.  We visit places we have never been.  We feel things we never felt.  We see people in different ways.  We show lines across our faces of memories we wish to forget. And these stories to others seem to be in another language and they do not understand.

All of these lines across my face

Tell you the story of who I am

So many stories of where I’ve been

And how I got to where I am

But these stories don’t mean anything

When you’ve got no one to tell them to

It’s true… I was made for you

Brandi Carlile – The Story lyrics

But someone may be there, someone that can truly hear your words.  They enter your story with you and they do not desert you along the way. And at that moment, a gate flings open and peacefulness enters your heart.  Your story now has wings. 

A heart-rending song by a new Minstrel,  Brandi Carlile

    While Brandi brings the song to life it is indeed her bass-playin’ partner in crime (Phil Hanseroth) who penned the words to that tune. Brandi wrote most of the songs on The Story, her second album. Her debut album is filled with songwriting collaborations with The Twins, Phil and Tim Hanseroth. Just thought I’d let ya know. The Story is one of my fave tunes of the Brandi Carlile Band.

    Good Morrow Holly,

    The composer of this song should be credited as it is beautifully written. Our appreciation from Camelot. Brandi was recently in Vancouver, Canada and performed live on the “Jenn and Joe” show on CFUN radio. Her sincerity and pure talent came across during her live performance. During her interview she was very down to earth and captivating. Jenn and Joe loved her music and became one of their favorites. Your website is a lovely tribute Brandi Carlile, an artist that is evolving every day. Thank you.
