about

This track was written on vacation in Cancun, Mexico, sitting on a beautiful balcony, in-between meditations and relaxing under an umbrella by the ocean.

lyrics

You tell your friends about the things you wanna do-
I don’t belong to you.
You tell those faces about the mountains you will climb-
But, I did all that a long time ago.
And, you want a person that you can tip and toss like your divining rod
But, all the water in the world, won’t pull the desert from your girl.

Fallacies, they’re all so caked in mud in a, in a cenote in Mexico.
Horses trampling on the limestone roadways-
Down here we call those “the melting places.”
And, you want a partner that you can flip and flop
Like all your shooting stars,
But, all the fire in the world, won’t shift the waves around your girl.

And, when you’re seven you’re a little girl,
And, when you’re twelve you’re in a woman’s world,
And, when you’re dead you’re in your family’s head,
And, the ladies stay up and cry all night.

And, you want a vision of the earth-made-whole
With all its buried gold,
But, all the treasure in the world won’t buy the secrets in your girl.

And, when you’re dead you’re in your family’s head,
And, when you’re found you’re living in the ground,
And, when you rise you’re in the ocean’s eyes,
But, all the water in the world, won’t pull the desert from your girl.
