about

First single from the upcoming release, Telegrams (March 29, 2019). This song was inspired by a short story called "Travis B" by American author, Maile Meloy.

lyrics

Lyrics:
It started with a buzzing feeling
that turned into a ringing sound.
So, I fired up the head bolt heater
and headed on into town.

There was snow burning up in the headlights
and a cross on the side of the hill,
looked as cold as the steel in my right leg
that I keep be- neath the windowsill.

I still get letters from some friends in the army
forwarded from my last address.
Sometimes when I’m out feeding the horses
I feel something rising up in my chest.

I could drive through the night to see you,
I could fly to England or France,
or just slow down as I’m passing the schoolhouse
if you’re finished teaching your night class.

I keep my one glass eye in a bottle,
it’s always staring at me from the shelf.
Talk about seeing your own reflection
reflecting back on yourself.

I’m not sorry I saw you but I’m going back down
that Coquihalla highway alone
‘cause the horses will be needing their oats soon,
and I’m sensing you’ve got places to go.

Lately I’ve been having the same dream,
I’m falling out of the sky.
I pull you up into my saddle
and we ride on through the night.
