about

hi
dear
friends.
thank you
for the loft
for the kiss
for the help
for the food
for the talks
for the hugs
for the tears
for the blood
for the flower
for the phone
for the photos
for the heartache
for the dog sitting
for the long walks
for the opening up
for the employment
for the encouragement
for the auto repair rescue
for the random texts to just say hi
for sharing your families and homes
for showing me how to build things with tools
for the sanguine, the sacred, and the sanctuaries
for not giving up on people even when they give up on themselves.
you are a great, great gift to me. here is a small gift from me, for you.
thank you.

Track Name: Treetops
my baby she lives in the treetops
way over yonder at the top of the hill
i've been sleeping on the sidewalk
waiting on a word from her window sill
waiting on a word from the lighthouse
waiting on a word from a holy ghost
but she keeps blowing them lights out
and i keep moving up and down the coast

oh lord...

abraham went up on the mountain
told isaac, "son, you'd better come along too"
he was getting ready to pull that knife out
getting ready to do that thing he didn't wanna do
and god, he don't wear him no kid gloves
but ol' abe he took it on the chin
cos he knew you can't keep god from the ones you love
so father abraham let old danger in

and jacob he wrestled that angel
and eljiah waited on that still small sound
my baby she lives in the treetops
and i'm waiting on the ground

oh lord...

who's that moving in the rafters?
whose is that shadow in the grass?
who's that crazy boy after?
(it's the grey-eyed lady in the kraken mask!)

oh lord, are you shaking them branches?
oh lord, are you shaking those limbs?
oh lord, are you shaking them branches?
are you shaking them trees again?

oh lord, i'm taking my chances
putting my seeds out on the wind
oh, won't you show me how that dance is
(if you feel like dancing again)
