about

Jeffrey Altergott Chicago, Illinois

Jeffrey Altergott isn’t afraid of the uncomfortable and uncertain that lurks in the dark places. He has become adept at traversing the darkness; learning its lessons; and returning safely to the light with a sense of hope and wonder. It is this sort of shamanic sensibility that Altergott brings to his music and his listeners. ... more

Thank You

I feel broken, I feel broken
My pieces are scattered, my pieces are scattered
You clean up my mess
You pick up each piece like it matters
And put me together again
You’re all of my horses; you’re all of my men

That’s when I knew
You see something special
Something special in me
You see special, special in me

I’m turned around dizzy, turned around dizzy
I’m losing my balance, I’m losing my balance
I fix my eyes, for a place that I recognize
It’s your form; it’s your face,
Saving me from disgrace

So, my love

How can I thank you, how can I thank you
How can I honor all that we’ve been through
If I sing you this song, if the world sings along
If I give you my life
And the warmth of my nights

Maybe you’ll know that it’s true
I see special
I see special in you
I see special, special in you

And I don’t feel broken
And I don’t feel dizzy
Anymore
