about

This song alone was recorded from my tiny house on the banks of the American River.

lyrics

there's no time but the present
and our hearts are all ours
we could swim in the river
or make love
under the stars

toes in the water

a caustic shimmer on translucent leaves
retune my eyes
to see the glow
behind all that we know

I'll draw you a map
so when I don't come back
you'll know where to go
to find me

I live in a house with no walls
no doors to lock
and the Hill Nisenan gave me mugwort
to dream of a river
in it I'm weightless
both ancient
and newly born

oh caustic shimmer on translucent leaves
retune my eyes
to see the glow
behind all that we know

follow your map
so when I don't come back
you'll know where to go

toes in the water
