about

Earlier this month, Rebecca and I reached three years living in our current apartment and neighborhood. That milestone solidifies this as my longest running home after the one in which I grew up, although that milestone was technically reached some time ago (at two years, one month, and one day to be precise). Lately I've been feeling at ease here. The familiarity is a comfort to me. Knowing what to expect around the corner holds a kind of romance. I think that's part of the seduction home. Your mind holds a picture before you open your eyes. You open your eyes and the picture is the same. This song is trying to capture some of the romance of the familiarity I feel in my neighborhood while leaving room to be surprised from time to time.

lyrics

The morning's alright
The evening's usually better
I try to get errands over with

All over the block
Confetti turns to litter
The streetlight turns to glitter
In the rain and it's raining again

All over the town
The doorways are like temples
And I'm giving you an earful

I follow you home
You catch me at the corner
My senses dull in summer every year

And we'll be extras
We'll get paid to walk in circles
And drive a vintage model
In a costume on HBO

All over the town
The doorways are like temples
And I'm giving you an earful
