lyrics

Who Are You

Sun’s beating down
So the city’s staying in
It’s a dried-out snake skin
But still full of venom
Trusted you as a child
Trusts his mama’s hands
You were my homeland
Now I wander round in exile

Who are you now
Who was I talkin’ to
Into tomorrow
Through the moon and the sun
And your army of one

The evening breeze
Brings a rumor of relief
But it’s such a tease
There’s no escaping this heat
I could tell you I’m sorry
But I won’t pay for my sins again
They were my only way in
The way into redemption

Chorus

We could take
One of our drives tonight
Windows rolled down
Breeze blowin’ in your eyes
Cross the Walt Whitman bridge
Sleep on a Jersey beach
Ocean lulling us to sleep
God, I wish that I could sleep

Ain’t no devil on my heels, babe
No lover in my bed
I’m just as good as dead
As any man in every instant
No matter what you say
No matter what you do
Ain’t gettin’ over you
And baby don’t I know it

Chorus

These songs weave beautiful, forlorn tales in a matter of minutes, but with a defiant note of hope.” The songs on 2018's Light Years album play like postcards & snapshots written during an endless road trip around Alaska - or along every other dreamy, scenic stretch of highway anywhere... ... more
