  1. Downstream

From the recording Roughing It

Written in late fall. Inspired by my wife, my life, and the goodness yet to come.

Lyrics

Goodbye's no way to begin
Stiff wind, and I'm set adrift my friend
Two leaves on an autumn tree
You stay and I'm in the stream, alone, my friend

Between a rock and my heart
How I'm worn by the beating
Wanna be back where you are
Even if I'm only dreaming

Maybe we're not so far away
Maybe the wind at our back ain't cold as it seems to be
Maybe there's more left to say
Maybe what we think is past ain't gone
It's waiting up downstream

Every day I sail on feels like
I'm further from home, from you my friend
But are we really so far?
I wonder if you are drifting too, my friend

And in the roaring water
I'd have sworn I could see you
Now everything becomes clear
There you are, can it be you

Maybe we're not so far away
Maybe the wind at our back ain't cold as it seems to be
Maybe there's more left to say
Maybe what we think is past ain't gone
It's waiting up downstream
