Keep Me.

Becca and I got our sister tattoos yesterday, the long awaited day finally arrived, and it felt good.

I haven’t felt the need for tattoos lately. Maybe I haven’t felt the need for that pain, the rush of adrenaline afterwards, the feeling of a needle on skin. It’s probably healthier than I haven’t felt that need, because I think my dad was edging closer to killing me with each new idea I had:)

Still, we’d been waiting for yesterday ever since I had the idea a year ago. My sister is always on her own time schedule, so when she said she was ready, it needed to happen.

Dave Matthews has a song called “Sister” that I played for Becca last year on her birthday:

Passing time with you in mind
It’s another quiet night
Feel the ground against my back
Counting stars against the black

Think about another day
Wishing I was far away
Wherever I dreamed I was
You were there with me

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, keep me

I hope you always know it’s true
I would never make it through
You could make the sun go DARK
Just by walking away

Playing like we used to play
Like it would never go away
I feel you beating in my chest
I’d be dead without

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, you keep me

I hope you always know it’s true
I would never make it through
You could make the heavens fall
Just by walking away

(Chorus)
Sister, I hear you laugh
My heart fills full up
Keep me please
Sister, when you cry
I feel your tears
Running down my face
Sister, sister, you keep me

We’re sisters, we both have a deep love for Dave Matthews, so BOOM! The tattoo was born: keep me.

I love her.
