  1. Change

From the album Do Be Do

Lyrics

There’s a warm wind whipping
Through the mountains and the sage
Driving through the desert
Ghost town planes
The gas station’s closed
But the welcome sign still hangs
Tattered and frayed through years and days
And sunrays

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction

Take a picture thru the window
Engine revving high
Watching the windmills
Wave on by
My life in backseat boxes
Your shadow in my mind
Spinning broken record
Of our last goodbye
I’m leaving you behind

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction

I’ve got a suitcase
of tattered trail ways
and tips
A meditation bell
The smoke of your kiss
Imprinted and engraved
In the marrow of my hips
Oh quiver, quake
And quicken me
Away from your lips

I have only to change my direction
I have only to change
I have only to change my direction
