Smoky orange light distant flaming trees Smoky orange light on the hazy breeze Smoky orange light distant flaming trees It's the breath of the BC sun Music in the bay dancing in the sand Music in the bay where the mountains stand Music in the bay dancing in the sand Under stars and a silhouette moon Under stars and a silhouette moon Crooked Cafe makes a great big sound Crooked Cafe spread the word around Crooked Cafe makes a great big sound Yes I will return one day Sleeping under stars in the man's back yard Sleeping under stars isn't very hard Sleeping under stars in the man's back yard Hold on to the one you love You better hold on to the one you love Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress Olive oil skin and my heart's a mess Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress Girl I'd like to be with you On the side of the road not too far from town On the side of the road want to turn around On the side of the road and I'm all broke down I'm leaving against my will I have not yet had my fill I'm leaving against my will I have not yet had my fill Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress Olive oil skin and my heart's a mess

I'll miss these trees again Before the mountains at the summer's end Yellow freckles in the Earth's green skin Change it frees us of our regrets and sins The highway swirls in Earth kaleidoscope The train tracks climb a most gentle slope Cars are passing as a I set afoot One after the other will I escape for good Follow a stream until it turns to snow Follow a dream that lets you down so slow Climb a ridge up to the autumn sky I pushed on how I really tried And I tried, and I tried, oh I tried On the bus moving down the road To some places I said I'd go I won't be back until I feel I'm done Don't I know I'm the I'm the selfish one And in review I will miss you While I'm gone But it won't be long Yes it's true I will miss you While I'm gone But it won't be long No it won't be long No it won't be long I will miss you while I'm gone

She met me out at quiz night We talked of here and home Her chocolate truffle eyes could do me harm She spoke to me in Hebrew I thought of her in rhymes And when we left we parted at the door But oh I wanted more She's my ticket home She's everything I've missed Memories flash by me now that she's my ticket home She's stuck again on milkshakes And those classic cruising cars Her hair turns with her skirt when she floats by I'm a tragic minimalist Doesn't get me very far I bake for her tartes aux poires Bourdaloue Dans sa rue She's my ticket home She's everything I've missed Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by She's my ticket home She's everything I've missed I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause She's my ticket home Hold on seasons dropping in so fast I dreamed a house of perfect viewing glass Now I call her from the west coast Say the winters here are mild But they don't have those windy city charms She's a drifter with her theories Her philosophies run wild Now who could tame an ocean from its side I think I'll take a dive She's my ticket home She's everything I've missed Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by She's my ticket home She's everything I've missed I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause She's my ticket home I'll sing my style of song again 'cause She's my ticket home

I moped around this town looking for a spark In spite of the sun I was in the dark Loneliness and cowardice are two sad states of mind Happiness could be now just leave the past behind Oh I'm down again I've picked up before I bought a ticket for a bus ride out of town I couldn't thumb a ride crawling on the ground Everybody else seems to have their lives all figured out While I follow a map of the sewers in a city of doubt Oh I'm lost again I've been found before And I am a truth seeker Begging at your door And oh I'm old again I've been young before And I am a silhouette Fading from your door And I feel like a cigarette Stomped out on the floor And I am a shipwreck Sunken off your shore Sunken off your shore

They said you can stay Only if you pay Not just your money We want your days So take it or leave it She said you should stay Only if you want These are different stars They can be your stars So take them or leave them Well I can't sing my way out of this one Stuck in my own divide With my broken stride Who will harmonize with me It's been a lonely time just me When will I realize just where I wanna be So take it or leave it Well there's no moon quite like a new moon Well there's no moon quite like a new moon Drawing out its encore While stars silently roar I've got a backstage pass Behind the curtains we laugh And if the rain drops fall will they miss me at all So take it or leave it She said you should stay Only if you want These are different stars They can be your stars So take them or leave them Well I stayed So take it or leave it Well I stayed

about

Jesse Rivest DF, Brazil

I was raised to move and shift—damn the availability of fast airplanes! But I'd have escaped via water ship, anyway. And it probably still would have sounded like this.
