Description
here is another repost. i deleted a lot of songs last year and i am slowly reposting my favorites and posting the work i am doing now. over a three year stretch i had five people close to me die. three of them i wrote songs after having spent time with friends and family. this one was for scot, my childhood and perennial friend who died in february 2008. because we grew up together it really brought a lot of feelings from my own childhood to the surface and in remembering and see our faces , the face of our youth, i could also see my own family as they played out there lives those years ago when they were much younger than i am now. looking through the telescope backwards is such a bitter sweet experience.

Lyrics
start here at the airport
feels like im going blind
middle of the day in a dark bar
1000 miles away from peace of mind
im tring to remember
when i was a kid
did the sun set in my back yard
i think it did

what comes before and goes on after

long hair or short hair
but always intense
the only thing thats goint to suffer
is on the other side of the fence
its snowing in moline
every ones asleep
the planes waiting on the paddock
and a feeling starts to creep
somewhere over milwalkee
some tears escape my eye
rolls down my cheek
a little baby cries

what comes before and goes on after

i can see my father
a drink in his hand
sun setting behind him
on our acre of land
when we going to eat i ask
im only about ten
he looks at his glass and he says
two more inches

you should have the picture
of him rising from the dead
no order , no rhyme, no reason
it was everything he said
empty bed five feet up off the floor
im missing all the laughter
i just cant open that door
ill try to keep my family happy as
spring hits the air

i can see my father
a drink in his hand
sun setting behind him
on our acre of land
when we going to eat i ask
im only about ten
he looks at his glass and he says
two more inches

Otherworldly, completely original
Otherworldly vocal pacing and production. The last verse is kind of astonishing to me for both the vernacular interjection of "im only about ten" and also answering the "when" with "inches." I'm shaking my head.
Check out my latest song called Happy Birthday (Na Na Na Na)
