Album: Algiers (2012)

  • In the afternoon of orange blossom days
    Hummingbirds rest above where we lay
    You say it’s ok, no need to fret
    The weight of it all will ease as we find
    The balance in each step we make

    Swinging back n’ forth in a palo verde tree
    The wind in the needles hushes you asleep
    Even with the strain, your heart remains
    Don’t doubt why darlin’
    In time you will find we’re alright we were born
    Like the branch to bend and not to break

    Reconcile and resurrect, tombstone rose
    Growing up and over the gates to where our children play
    The future wraps ‘round like vines
    Inside these arms

    Darlin’ will you say in our final embrace
    Before returning ‘neath the clay
    After all that your heart still remains Writer/s: JOHN CONVERTINO, JOSEPH G BURNS
