Peaceful as a Sleeping Nun

Purchase on  The Queen of the Western Hemisphere - Big Medicine Head  and all online music stores

Watching through the windshield as they rolled
thinking of a summer long ago
dusty river roads covered in sun
every day folds into one

Something happened to me when we met
what it was I haven’t found out yet
close our eyes to feel each other breath
float into each other’s dreams

Weightless in the dream
and I am not the wayward son
we are weightless in our dreams
close your eyes the day is done
rest beneath the healing sun
peaceful as a sleeping nun

When we kissed we were everything
east and west and everything between
holding hands and never letting go
crying at the movie show

Stretched out then on Highway 65
never more awake or more alive
fields of lavender and cottonwood
when were ever things that good?

Weightless in the dream
and I am not the wayward son
we are weightless in our dreams
close your eyes the day is done
rest beneath the healing sun
peaceful as a sleeping nun

Photographs seen through a dusty lense
An Oldsmobile is rusting by the fence
fast asleep and fading in the sun
peaceful as a sleeping nun
