Driving through the Deschutes National Forest by myself during a snowstorm, putting my hand out the window to feel the freezing night air and smiling the whole way through.
If my bones were wrapped around you
My skin was right in front of you
Would you smile and close your eyes?
I’m yours tonight
If you stay
I promise to keep it alight
For all these days.
I sent her my warmth and my silence
and all she sends me back is rain . . . rain
the Universe, she’s wounded
but she’s still got infinity ahead of her
she’s still got you and me
and everybody says that she’s beautiful
the Universe, she’s dancing now
they got her lit up, lit up on the moon
they got stars doing cartwheels, all the nebulas on the tune
and the Universe, she’s whispering so softly I can hear all
the croaking insects, all the taxicabs, all the bum’s spent change
all the boys playing ball in the alleyways
Such an intent stare
One eye at a time
You are a rare bird
I mean I know that now is all there is
And love’ll just make you cry
So I live for the sight of a rare bird
Suddenly flying by
You can have Manhattan…I’ll settle for the beach, and sunsets facing westward, and sand beneath my feet.
An indie kind of love.
I discovered this band while watching a pretty great movie called “Take Me Home.” Love the escapism and the romance around being on the road. I might have cried a little.
