DOWNLOAD THIS SONG FREE this FIRST WEEK of SPRING

A dreamlike, hypnotic spoken/sung tune with a smoky vibe that gets under your skin. After an endless winter, an anticipation of swollen late-summer nights.

lyrics

in the evening
in the streets
as the shadows fall and rise

in the city
in the trees
in the gardens, lullabies

and the sky so dark
and the smell so deep and dusty and blue
and the world's gone mad just for you

and the houses are all haunted
and the shapes, the secrets of things
and the highway smells like the night

and I'm hoping you will see me
‘cause I want to be with you again
for a moment, frozen in time

words on paper, words in books
words in darkness, words in looks
words in silence, membranes and nerves

words on paper, trying to speak
words on fire, secrets to keep

words on paper, trying to say
words on fire, flying away
