about

This is a song from 2010 album Won Over Frequency that has always stood out to me as different from my other children. I made a remix sketch of it while preparing to make a looping video performance, and since the video never happened, I thought it'd be fun to flesh it out.

lyrics

When the sails of your tall ship
match the stillness of the water
from the petals of your small lips
falls the flower of our daughter

and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back

When the bugs in the tall grass
fan your face in the hot sun
you will walk down the rock path
touching moss with your thumb

and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back

When the crackle of an old creek
takes you back to our backyard
cutting ribbons from your daydreams
bowing presents from your scars

and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back
and you smile the whole way back

When that sunset through the oak tree
paints a leopard on the vast earth
you will wander in your bare feet
to this old heart murmur
