oh. lot's of driving around the country in those days. the mid-west, time zone changes, missed gigs, writing on one knee while driving getting pulled over by police and smiling. when a girl's in her mid-20's and on a mission, no road seems a lone stretch of miles.


do you know the difference 'tween good 'n what we had?
good'll gobble up like Cookie in a Bag.
good'll keep you floating
off the bottom of the ocean
good'll rock you like a baby
baby we're no good
when we rock
we make an avalanche.

i tell you how i miss you
it's like missing make believe
clinging to a cliff wall
when you know you'll fall from naivete.
coming up for air
to find none there
you were deceived
you got no more life in your tires.

baby when we breathe
we make god perspire.

everyone i know 'round here knows this
the swimming hole is deep
swing on the rope right off the cliff
the water's gonna catch you baby
that's the juice of the earth's kiss
you can't think twice when you dive
you scramble in the wind
like the wind
pushed you in
and you can't swim
and you don't know where to hide.

baby let me sink with you
drown let me drink with you
down to the depth of your personal mess
i left my bag in there
where you don't get no air
i wanna talk baby language
to your most
unlearned places.
