about

Biographic song, everything is true.

lyrics

At 17,
I took at trip back home to where I was born,
Indiana.

And I'd forgot how high the corn, the fireflies,
and how warm, it stayed
at night.

I thought that I had "arrived,"
when Grandpa John let me drive,
his new deVille, his new deVille,
how it shined in the streetlights.

He drove a truck long haul for 30 years
and cautioned me,
to watch for their tires against the lines at night,
to see if they were,

comin' over
comin' over
comin' over to me,
repeat

And I can't forget, can't stop thinking about that day,
Will I know the place?
Will we recognize each others' faces?
I just hope that I can step into,
a long slow embrace. repeat.

We carrry 'round
all the sights the touch the taste the smell,
of all the days, passing over us.

And we're so charmed
by the lights the smoke the chimes the bells,
and the spells, that we cast upon one another.

We stumble to these caves,
we pour it, drink it down, get it out. The spoiled fruit, and the gathered seeds of the Earth.

We grow so light, so light
we want to fly. repeat.

But we're always...
crashing to the ground
crashing to the ground
crashing to the ground. repeat.

And I can't forget,
what I learned one day at the low tide.
No I can't forget,
what I learned one day at the low tide.

I think we'll move like starfish, in the end,
to the wet and the dark.
I said I think we'll move like starfish, in the end,
to the wet and the dark.,
