lyrics

I told you before my son died climbing the mountain
Reaching for something worth living for
Or so he thought, but at the top was a lack of oxygen
A tick bite infused him with muscle aches and such
So to the earth he left his poor mother
Clutching a picture, with water in the dust
When you look at me think of your mother
Oh how she loves you, loves you very much

Breathe into me
So dust can rise from sleep
(x2)

Promise this old man that you’ll give up on farming
You have my blessing to follow your heart
Or better yet, you will follow something greater than yourself
More than any wealth, or your pride, or your health
Behold my fields, glance at my kingdom
The dust of the nation cries out in thirst
Keep on filming son and keep on working hard
And I’ll see you in the movies from the hay bales of my heart

[Chorus]
(x2)

We fell in love on Easter morning down by the ocean; a sunrise sermon
I walked her home and she kissed me on the mouth
How familiar now? For over fifty years
Now she’s close to sleep and our apartment is a mess
I haven’t dusted, I haven’t swept; it’s been hard, I confess
Look at me boy and hear what I have to say:
You know nothing about love until it’s free to fly away

You know nothing about love until it’s free to fly away
(x2)
