Recorded live @ John Sloans house, early 2014


A whole life, an invitation burning in the wind. An old song, in the graveyard, singing through the dirt. Golden days, with silver linings, cutting through the dark. Sweet love, pushing poems, making it all of it up.

And I know that your fever's going down, and with any luck, You'll be back on your feet again...just smile.

Wobbly chair, I think I'll fix you, steady as she goes. Silver hair, I'll learn to love you, shine you up like gold. Umbrella, It's nice to know you, I think i'll keep the rain. Soak down, past the heartache, and wash away the pain.

And I know that hate will never change me, but love can rearrange me, sit with me a while...and just smile.

Picture perfect. What is perfect? I don't want to know. Clear and honest. If it's flawless, I'll throw it out the door. If I die, before I wake, would you even know? Just keep me with dead roses, So other ones can grow.

And I see, the world is not the enemy, on the contrary, it let's you see the sun for a while...just smile.
