Slowness

Album: Carried to Dust (2008)

  • Miles of highway poppies
    A stretch of maybe flowers past Signal Hill away
    We were parked and searching
    For a hubcap rolling into the fields of thorn

    Although we couldn't see a thing that night
    And the stars in their slowness
    And their slowness took us by surprise

    If I never told you how you helped to rescue
    The car and all inside
    Remember roads were steep and
    You and I went sliding down the grade from Gate's Pass

    You asleep and me behind the wheel
    Hovering in, in that slowness
    And that slowness has never gone away

    Although we couldn't see a thing that night
    And the stars still shone and the stars still shone
    And the stars still shone

    In their slowness, in their slowness
    In their slowness, in their slowness
    And their slowness has never gone away
