lyrics

By the time the plane touched down we were exhausted
Bleary-eyed we shuffled down the jetway
You had a green bandana tied around your head
In my mind I always picture you that way

We were half-asleep for the drive up from Momona
I’m not sure how we kept ourselves awake
By the time that we checked in to our hotel room
We could only collapse onto the bed

You took my picture outside the Fortune Theatre
The wind blew my hair into my face
You laughed and said that that was one thing
You sure as hell didn’t miss these days

We had lunch outside in a little café
It was crowded but you didn’t seem to care
And I watched you like every move was a new revelation
Another piece of you laid bare

We rode out to the Head the next morning
To watch the albatrosses dance around
You laughed at all their arcane movements
I’ve never heard a more beautiful sound

Last night I dreamt that I was on the shoreline
An you were gliding overhead
I watched you awestruck as you sailed out over the water
Your luminous body lit up the whole sky
