about

Listening to this week's track, one thing is evident: I am really cooped up right now. This song is gasping for breath from under the boot-heel of a pretty oppressive routine. My wife and I have been ships in the night for months, working jobs that keep us in and out of the house at opposite intervals. Our most reliable time spent together is late at night as we fall asleep. This song is about pining for the woman lying next to me. It's a fantasy of leaving behind the routine that harries us. Later this week we're taking off for a brief trip to California for a family wedding in San Francisco, and to visit my dear brother's homestead in the hills above Santa Cruz. This song is my heart clawing its way to the airport, and threatening not to return once we get there.

lyrics

And I could say love
Look into my eyes
And I'll tell you dear
Listen to my voice
I'm begging you darling
Hold tight to my hand
And we'll go far from here
Be forgotten
We'll go on the wind
Disappear in the moonlight
We'll leave without word
Without thought of our sorrows
We'll go far away
Far from here
And never look back

And I been awake
All the whole night through
And I've been suffering
For learning the rules
Yes I been suffering
And the only thing true
Lies asleep next to me
In the silence
The truth in the arc
Of the light as it finds you
That here in the dark of the night
I'll be blinded
And you take me far far from here
And we never look back

And up in the air
The moon's like a bird
And the gathering wind
Is the voice of a friend
And the evening lets loose
All the voices we've heard
And we'll go far from here
Be forgotten
We'll go on the wind
Disappear in the moonlight
We'll leave without word
Without thought of our sorrows
We'll go far away
Far from here
And never look back
