about

I just listened to this song for the first time since I wrote it last Wednesday, and it isn't exactly what I remembered writing. Perhaps my perspective has changed because my wife and I are on vacation, basking in ultimate west coast relaxation, but this song is lighter, far less burdened, and far more optimistic than I remembered it being. That's fitting. My mindset is open and sunny right now, and this song only let in an ounce or two of pre-vacation gloom. Spring is coming and life is going to change. The transformation from serious creatures to beautiful creatures described in this song was initially aspirational, but I now believe it to have been prophetic. So it goes.

lyrics

Had it up to here with this whole damn town
And digging for gold in the middle of the street
I want to see you
I want to see you smiling back at me

Spat a lot of words with my face into the wind
And making you a habit is the best I ever did
I want to be there
I want to be there smiling back at you

Oh serious creatures
Oh what serious faces
Urge the moment passing you by to linger a little longer

Drinking my wine and pondering the night
Running out the clock on an ordinary day
It's good to see you
It's good to see you cracking a smile lately

Oh beautiful creatures
Oh what radiant faces
Urge the moment passing you by to linger a little longer
