We inaugurate the evening Just drumming up a little weirdness
It gets late so early now The waves come in in mountain phases I'd see fire where it's not supposed to be
I first saw her in a mega store The day-glow raven born into a free fall
The fulfillment of a 10th grade prophecy A motel masterpiece
Blind to the branching possibilities Teardrops were standing in my eyes Like deer before they bolt
I adored the way she modified my mornings When I'd wake up in the calm shoals of her bed Somersaults or smoke in a universe of sleep Before she slipped into her heritage and disappeared And she taught me to relight, relight and relight again

"The Way" by Fastball was inspired by the story of an elderly couple from Texas who drove to a nearby family reunion and kept going. Fastball's bass player imagined them taking off and having fun like they were young. The story didn't end well: the couple was later found dead after they crashed in a canyon.
Ronnie Van Zant wrote the Lynyrd Skynyrd classic "Gimme Three Steps" after making the mistake of dancing with a girl whose boyfriend was in the bar and probably had a gun. He asked for a 3-step head start.
