All my days I have lived by the riverside
Old tin roof, Queen Anne’s lace, skeleton pine
Painting the expressions of all the pretty faces that pass me by
Some say I’m a dreamer always want what I can’t find

Grow your hair down to the cold ground my little girl
Dress your words up in glamorous gowns, ink and pearls
I don’t recognize you when you criticize my unkempt ways
I long to belong on your doorstep, I cannot stay

I’m not sure what it is you want me to say
Sentences spur, I’m no follower you bird of prey
Lazy little schemer walking towards you backwards, she’s chosen fear
30 minutes on a highway, this tune that you wanted to hear


from AFRAID I CAN'T SWIM, released October 20, 2015
