lyrics

When I was a young boy
6 strings and America
One not like the others
Eyes like an island lost at sea

Baptized in the ocean
Heartbreak in the summertime
Something like a spirit
burned red rocks on a land locked beach

Hidden in the hemlocks
a stones throw from the synagogue
Let me be your lover
Arms that are open - lips and teeth

When I am an old man
take me to reunion
Wear a yellow raincoat
write my name on an empty beach

It's been a long while just barely a memory
You wouldn't remember me
We took a bus ride invented an alibi
And treasured a melody

If we could slow down I'd know how
to breathe deep and hold it in-
side us forever
I never thought I'd be here again
Close your eyes tight and count to 10

Make me in the mountains a secret for the summertime
Something undiscovered
Eyes like an island rescue me

Stay with me forever be my yellow raincoat
Something like religion
Over and over and underneath

It's been a long while just barely a memory
You wouldn't remember me
We took a bus ride invented an alibi
And treasured a melody

If we could slow down I'd know how
to breathe deep and hold it in-
side us forever
I never thought I'd be here ag ain
2x
Close your eyes tight and count to 10

When I was a young boy
6 strings and America
One not like the others
Eyes like an island lost at sea

Baptized in the ocean
Heartbreak in the summertime
Something like a spirit
over and over and underneath

When I am an old man
take me to reunion
Wear a yellow raincoat
write my name on an empty beach

Keep me here forever
Stay still unexplainable
Something like a vision
Beautiful perfect and out of reach
