about

Second single from upcoming solo album - Kites

lyrics

I caught a fever
I can't believe it
I should have left those things alone

I can't fight it
I've got the weakness and weasels
They're crawling around in my bones
I've got reruns and sitcoms and westerns and ray guns
And no cons and shakers and hoppers and fakers
I don't know why it's so hot, it's so hot

She comes alive
In old fashioned places
Carries a knife in her hair
I'll treat her right

Her love is a crying son
And I feel her spirit come

I'm having visions
Of water snakes on rocks
I should be leaving those things alone

I want to clear this coast
But I can see them sliding like ripples over river stones
I got campers and potholes and kickers and sea scrolls
And liars and washers and buyers and sages and crotchets
I don't know why it's so hot, oh it's hot

She comes alive
In all kinds of places
Takes her delight in watching me beg
I know she's right

Our love is a towering one
And I feel her spirit come
