about

This is a song about staying behind when somebody goes away. It’s a simple little song, written deliberately simply to give me more time with a person who is heading out the door for a little while. It’s about feeling a little provincial when getting ready to miss somebody so worldly. Ultimately though, it is about embracing that provincial quality, and recasting it as reliability. You’ll know just where to find me.

I neglected to mention last week, by the way, that you’re hearing a new guitar here on Mount Everest. It’s a beautiful Fender Telecaster given to me by my good friend and frequent collaborator Nick Mastors, who played it often on early Everest tracks. Many thanks to him!

lyrics

You’re on a plane
Heading oh so far away
For so long
I wouldn’t listen to the hum

I got a long list
Of places I’ve never been
It’s been a long while
But you’ve been to most of them

When you see
The sun rise up
Ahead of me
If you look back
I’ll be here

I need a green light
Shining up in the trees
I got a cold road
Barking cars out in the night

You’re in a dry land
Yes it’s bleeding dry you see
You got a good hand
Putting pressure on the bleed

When you see
The sun rise up
Ahead of me
And stars you saw
Hours ago
Now I can see
And when it’s time
You’re gonna know
Just where I’ll be
When you come back
I’ll be here
