"This whole life I remember has led back unto itself
and never turned me into someone else."

-- Dar Williams, "The Hudson."

Don't feel like talking about what it means to me, except to say I first heard it when some things were changing in my life and I was terrified by the prospect of both my future and my identity shifting around me. The song is about life and death as a cycle, the change of seasons, New York City (and [livejournal.com profile] green_maia , if you catch this, it therefore makes me think of you, a bit). The whole song resonates with me, and that line most of all.

If you look it up on a commercial lyrics site, there are some obvious mistakes -- Dar is a first-class lyricist; she writes metaphor, but not nonsense. Therefore, full lyrics are under the cut. )
