Sunflowers 03:20
This my favorite season since the last one Hanging from the cherry tree shooting cap guns Downhill red wagon ride on a wooded road Tried to pull you off the path so you couldn’t go Got my ten digits dirty with a shade of green Nurturing the tomatoes and the basil leaves Put the work in, waited back patiently And saw a whole garden grow from the baby seeds Maybe we ain’t got a clue, that’s okay with me I’ve been good at playing make believe But this change will break me to my aching knees I can’t always be as strong as I claim to be Shit…I’m still afraid of being normal Still won’t let myself pray to be immortal Still looking for the light and shine Cause when I get it, love, I like what I find I’ve a long way to go All the things that I’ve done and the hours I’ve grinded Made me a better man and made the sunflowers giant I’ve a long way to go Was in a hurry to grow, but I've been changing my mind And learning how to take it all in a day at a time This my favorite season til the next one I got the cuts and scrapes to prove its been fun Staring at the sunflowers with their heavy heads hung I can tell that our bittersweet ends come Handle it when it’s finally time to handle it For now the horizons lined with shiny amulets Things are simple, September with a sweaty brow But I got a feeling that’ll flip when you bounce My backyard is a colored jungle wonderland Full of bamboo, hydrogeneas and sustenance Funny how we can’t depend on what we've planned The growing season’s now something that I understand Still don’t know what to do But I still got an ear and a shoulder for you Still looking for the light and the shine Cause when I get it love I like what I find

Natasha Kmeto: If you and I were to be apart Well that would simply break my heart If you would ever leave my side Well I would truly lose my mind But it’s nice to know that even though I need you so, I want you too But it’s nice to know that even though I need you so, I want you too Will time consume an old desire Routine subdue a lustful fire Will true love last as dependence grows These are only things that time will show But it’s nice to know that even though I need you so, I want you too Yes, it’s nice to know that even though I need you so, I want you too Lucas Dix I’ll pack the oney up and pour another glass of Riesling So we can toast to thunderclaps and bee stings When the dust skidaddles and the day slips into the bygones We’ll freak it with the covers off and lights on Our forming wrinkles are reminders we don’t get younger But let’s remember that our age and years are just numbers Things we discovered in my 25th summer Turned me to an off-trail, river walking, bridge jumper Thanks boo. We faced the ocean wave blues And looked from the precipice while the tunnel trains chooed Fogged up the windows in the rainy winter wait through Now I’m trying to figure out if it’s okay to chase you We still giggle like children when we lie in bed While you help me clean the spider webs from inside my head Might have said that four letter L-Bomb A lot sooner if I didn’t think you thought it would have felt wrong What’s on your mind Clementine? Trying to define the design? I hope you find what gets you through the fight And if I ain’t included, don’t even sweat it, just do it But stay for now, because I want you tonight.
