about

This week's entry is a love song about gratitude. There are so many kinds of love songs. There is the fire and excitement of new love. There is the longing and desperation of lost love. There is the nervous anticipation of love yet to be. I have written all of these songs over the years. Lately I find my love songs falling into a different category. Lately I write about the gratitude and safety found only in sustained love. My love is growing up, and that's the right place to be a couple of years into my marriage. People don't typically write top-forty hits about this kind of love, but then again, I've never been accused of writing a top-forty hit. Thanks very much to Rebecca for continuing to find new ways to be my muse. She holds me up and faces me to the front when I need it. I love her very much indeed.

lyrics

All the dark cracks in the Earth
All the little life in the cracks
All the little eyes
Blinking as they're looking back

As you hold my hand
Remind me sweetly
Eyes to the front
Face home, my love
There's always a way back home
Oh my love
There's always a way back home

You could be my late night ride
You could clear the stones from the road
And I will carry them
Any place we need them to go

At the edge of day
Remind me darling
Feet on the ground
Face home, my love
There's always a way back home
Oh my love
There's always a way back home
Oh my love
There's always a way back home
Oh my love
There's always a way back home
