I opened with this song with my live band for many years on both coasts. This is the third time I've recorded it, and the first time I played everything on it. It's always held special meaning to me and it's one of my personal favorites.

After many years of working on my craft as a singer, songwriter, musician, and producer, it finally sounds as big and dreamy as I've always wanted it to sound. It's got personal meaning for me, but I wonder how others might interpret the lyrics.

I hope you like it. Thanks for listening as always.


I'm down and dirty
I'm under clouds and needing rain
I know it's early
to reap rewards from this old game

What am I lacking to seduce you?
Our time means everything to me

It's taken years for us to grow
Sometimes it's like we'll never meet

I want you more than you could know
To taste it now would be so sweet

I can feel the light
Her deadly rays shine on my head
I'm through the soil
I'm two days old, but I've dropped dead
