about

I've often called this a run-on sentence song, stream-of-consciousness, however you want to say it. It came pouring out of me, verse after verse after verse. I probably wrote 30 verses for this song. It took me a long time to pare it down, though some of them were truly rubbish to be honest. I went on a long solo backpacking trip and wrote this song along the way. It's always fun to play this one live and have folks sing along on the chorus. It felt like the right way to end this album.

lyrics

Now I don't wanna say it
But I ain't gonna lie
There's somethin' dangerous about you
I cannot deny
Yes and I don't know the answer
Baby I can't tell
If you're leadin' me closer to heaven or hell

Oh but I would not control you
Darlin' I would not demand
I would try my best to find you
Instead of understand
Because I don't understand you
And I would not pretend
But you're the angel in the castle
I'd give my life to defend, to defend

Hey Hey Hey

Now you're the answer to this question
Ah this question I have raised
Is there somethin' out there better than
What I know today
Is there somethin' out there better than
What I know today
Oh darlin' you have got a pricetag
I don't know if I can pay

I have loved you since I met you
I will love you till I die
Or at least till little kids stop lovin'
Homemade apple pie
I'm just tryin' to be clever
The truth is I'm afraid
Darlin' you have got a price tag
But I love ya anyway, anyway

Hey Hey Hey

Now open your imagination
Let your fantasy run wild
Throw your head back fill your lungs
And laugh like you are still a child
Though this world is full of danger
Though this world is full of doubt
You and I are gonna find out what this life is all about

Run down to the open meadow feel the fullness of the sky
Race the wind until our feet lift off and we begin to fly
And the higher that we're climbin' the further we could fall
But if you've never loved wide open
You have never loved at all, at all

Hey Hey Hey

Now I will light you like a dry fuse I will hold you like a vase
Wrap my arms around you in a Cannonball Embrace
I will wrap my arms around you I will kiss your pretty face
I will run you through my fingers
Till the world is washed away
