about

a nude self portrait

lyrics

Cow-pies and cactus
Are what I grew up with
Cedar and oak
Fill my first memories
They reach to each other
Like old worn-out lovers
Just looking for comfort
No heat in their need

Dirt roads at sunset
Black cows at the Simonette's
Red cardinal singing
On our windowsill
Hiking the lake trail
Climbing the soft shale
First true thirst felt
And then drinking my fill

Fish fries on Saturday nights
Home games and family fights
Heatwaves
Cicadas
Are what I am made of
Cold springs on hot summer nights
Tales told by campfire light
Wood-smoke and legend
Are woven in my skin
Ahh-ooo

Tadpoles swim beneath the underpass
Thunder clicks and they swim faster
Old trucks and the smell of gasoline
Summertime and sunburned shoulders
The town got small as I got older
I had to leave

Fish fries on Saturday nights
Home games and family fights
Heatwaves
Cicadas
And all I was made of
Cold springs on hot summer nights
Tales told by campfire light
Wood-smoke and legend
Were taken from my skin
Ahh-ooo
