Description
this is the second song from the rpm challange. i think i was more struck by the fact that it is the month of february. i have always had a thing for the month. it is the coldest even thoughthe days have been getting longer for a good 40 days. as a child i always was a little scared that it took that long for the suns heat to reach us. so we sit in this fetal position waiting. i guess whether i want to or not i feel that way every february. the events of the year somehow catch me, sometimes trip me up and i find such a release to finally turn around and confront them . anyway what a challenge it was and so productive.

Lyrics
you are like the rain that falls with the snow
or is it the other way around
i dont know
all i know is i love you
and cant get above you
it is driving with no place to go
the muscle and the bone i find
that keeps my heart in line
just confuses me

i am driving in my car
all alone
i could keep driving
or i could go home
there is nothing to be proven
there is nothing to be sown
and i wont let any body know what i know

you traveled so far
it is such a shame
that true love is still such a game
if you let it it will
always be the same
i hope in the end
i am alright
and every one else
can sleep tight
but i know , but i know it is only a dream, only a dream
i tried to cross that rive
i tried to do it right
i knew you would be waiting
in the middle of the night
i kind of missed the buss
so you came to me instead
you made me want to swim
you took my heart to bed
i could have stopped it anytime
but i wanted you so bad
i quickly crossed the line
i smudged it with my food
and i covered it up with leaves
i didn't want to see it
when i came back for what i believe

i called you from the bluff while i was taking off my cloths
you know i see me as the river
and you cant swim and i didn't know
so i teach you how to swim
and i kiss you one last time
i float on down the river
past everything we know

Life
Your music is like the rain that falls with the snow. Or is it the other way around? Every word you sing, every lyric, has a ghost, a kindred spirit, a love attached to it. You paint living. Love your stuff.

I dig the backing chorus. Where are those sounds from?

Symphonic rust
You have the vocal presence of a Vic Chesnutt and the performance and production frames your voice like a seasoned orchestra of rusted strings. This is (The video, btw, does you great justice -- I saw it in your forum.)

love it
Tim, it's so good to hear your new tunes. Very different pace from the older stuff but still has that poetic immediacy of the soul and that tenderness you always deliver like a humble and loving gift.

Wow
I really enjoyed listening to this song. Your voice reeled me in and kept in falling into that "love kind of mood". Wanting so much to learn what was going to happen at the end. You did an awesome job here singing the story and the music was perfect to my ears. Thanks for sharing this with us.

great production on your music and great emotion in your performance...... it's always a bit like reading a good book you can't put down....... or a film you don't want to end. Lovely words always and boy do you just know how they should be said. I just love your work, regards M
