By the river’s far bank
Flows what’s current
With echoes off these cliffs
I’m still silent
On the waves in that gulf
Floats my distance
In my sky-blue eyes
You’ll find my blues
No need to contrive
Some long-term sense of drive
Hard work made me thrive
Let us survive
Now my old designs
Look like some kid’s kite
Flying right out of sight
From this ball of twine
On some days all I do
Is let things slip right through
That string and its kite too
Far away from you
Beside the track ahead
Drifts my distraction
Round this corner to the right’s
My conscience
Low over our valley’s
My depression
In my sky-blue eyes
You’ll find my blues
Just look at these words, babe
See how blue I can be
Listen to these chords, girl
Hear the blues in me

Sing this once or twice, babe
Feel how blue I can be
Look me in the eyes, girl
Find the blues in me


from That string and its kite too, released November 25, 2016
