Red River (When You See Me)

Jun 26, 2014

The pressure's down and the sun it is not falling
The wind is up but we have another day
There's a million peaceful places along this river
And no urgent need to find one word to say

When you see me
Spending time in spaces where we want to go
Just happy to be
Satisfied with friends in north New Mexico

The mountains rise like the trees upon their faces
That color in my eyes with greens and blues
No big sky country here to keep expanding
Just comfort like a blanket in my view


You'll cast a line and I'll fish for one to write down
We'll pull them up to see what's on the hook
Then we'll place them back to let them go on living
Like the packed out hiked out memories that we took
