From the recording Tara Craig

Drums by Marco Arroyo


We talked until the sun came up
Then we talked some more
Books spread out around our feet
We sat on my living room floor

I told you of things I know
Like religion and philosophy
You read aloud the most beautiful poetry

When you’re near me
My heart beats so fast
I feel like my chest
Can’t hold it in
When I’m with you
I can’t stop smiling
Can’t stop laughing
It’s just what we do

We climbed to the highest spot
To watch the setting sun
Radio towers, jet streams, whispering children

You slept next to me
We dared not touch
I dreamt of kissing you in the freshly fallen snow
