Annie J. Dahlgren: Music

Blood From a Stone

Annie J. Dahlgren, Kate Wallace

Kate was participating in a songwriting workshop presented by the incredible Dana Cooper and came up with the 'blood from a stone cold heart line'.  We set about trying to do it justice and knew it needed to be kinda' bluesy.  This is my version and she has a killer one on her CD, Ruby Slippers.  I later produced a music video of the unbelievably talented Jesse Marin singing the same tune that you can find on YouTube.  

Blood From a Stone


In the beginning it was like a dream

Just goes to show you things are not what they seem

Every day all day only one thing I was thinkin' of

All that I wanted was just a taste of your sweet love


My desire to please, like some dark mortal sin

Burns like poison somewhere under my skin

How lucky for you, you took all you could get

Like candy from a baby without breakin' a sweat


Blood from a stone

Blood from stone

Tryin' to keep us from comin' apart is like tryin' to get

Blood from a stone cold heart


Tell me I'm crazy, you might be right

It took me way to long to give up the fight

I've tried and I've tried but what can I do

There's just no way to get through to you


Blood from a stone

Blood from a stone

Tryin' to keep us from comin' apart is like tryin' to get

Blood from a stone cold heart
