about

This is about my wife and first born. It was getting chilly that night in the barn and you can hear my fingers freezing up.

lyrics

Half child, stills my weapons,
cold as milk and bright as May.
Half wild, gonna be the death of me,
thinkin bout' her, till I'm old and gray.
repeat last line

See the young, runnin to the river.
See the young, floaten down the river.
They won't come home, till the end of the day.
repeat last line

Come the clouds, let's run through the roses.
They open up when it starts to rain.
Kiss me girl, we'll both get wet.
Maybe that all, that I could claim.
repeat last line

I'm old enough to know the way from here.
I'm old enough to know how it goes from here.
I'm old enough to know where to go from here.
But not how it ends...

Half child, stills my weapons,
cold as milk and bright as May.
Half wild, gonna be the death of me,
thinkin bout' her, till I'm old and gray.
