Lyrics

my father was once a kid
just like his father was before
now I get there - I can see them in my face
no kidding anymore


he always used to laugh
didn’t measure love or money
said sit here one more minute with me

before you carry me down in that old wagon
carry me down in these clothes I’m wearing
carry me down to the edge of the tide

said: if they’re asking for you still, you did something right.”

obvious, not obvious
the trail ever thinning in the brush
steps behind you - shadows chasing
the same light, that you’re still trying to touch.
now I can hear his laugh
in my own it’s quite uncanny
and his voice asking so kindly

would you carry me down across the slow grassy hill
carry me down to the edge of the tide
carry me down - it’s a task I’ll return

said: if they’re asking for you still, you did something right.”

so, take your shot it’s worth the shock
you might surprise yourself
no reversing, you’ve rehearsed
those lonely pages wilt under your breath
