about

This song came straight from a dream where I was with a 10 year old boy, completely immersed in the moment with him. The sweet taste of life and being with him at the sea’s edge on a shimmering summer day. Nothing to do, nowhere to go, except where my desire takes me. The boy in my dreams teaching me to remember and feel the wild and free soul that lives inside me, always.

lyrics

I see you walking down a country road
hands in your pocket you are kicking a stone
you don’t know where you’re going but you don’t care
the world is your playground, and you’re right there

and I feel you now my boy
you are smiling so bright my boy

let’s go down to the old swimming hole
let’s go down to the sea
show me the snails that you found on the rocks
show me the things I forgot

and I feel you now my boy
you are smiling so bright my boy

you take my hand and we go down the road
I take your hand we are going home
kicking stones
you and me, wild and free

see the blue blue of your eyes
an endless day under an endless sky
so sweet you are inside
and my soul can not be denied

when I’m with you my boy
and you are smiling so bright my boy

knocking on my window pane
come on out you seem to say
come on out now, come on out and play
it’s a big world now why can’t you see

but I do see you now my boy
and you are smiling so bright my boy

you take my hand and we go down the road
I take your hand we are going home kicking stones
you and me, wild and free
smiling boy
