lyrics

Leaving St. Louis / gonna head for the mountains I know
It’s been too long since I laid beside you
It’s been too long since I let you go

Winter’s still with me / like the breath of a whispered name
there’s a cold wind blowing, leaving bare roots showing
in the lights of the westbound train

Time’s a cold shoulder / turns its back on your plans
and that wind it blows bitter through these empty hands
blows bitter through these empty hands

When I cross the state line / I’ll be sealing this letter I’ll send
say a prayer for the lonely / these thoughts that still own me
say a prayer that I’ll see you again

Time’s a cold shoulder / turns its back on your plans
and that wind it blows bitter through these empty hands
blows bitter through these empty hands

PopMatters: “…the 29-year-old combines Americana and lavish 1970s Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter fare with the confidence of a master."
