Story

One of the first original songs we did in our first open-mics in 1997--just a few months after Eric quit commuting between Toledo and Detroit.

Lyrics

When I get to your foothills

When I get to your fields

I will go to the river

You'll hold your hand out to me

You'll hold my hand

And I will come to understand

and be gladly swallowed

 

I'll hit Toledo by morning

And by then I'll be halfway there

I'll come out from where it's storming

You'll come out your window

and meet me there

And if you say you'll lead the way

I will gladly follow

 

I can only give in so long

singing words to someone else's song

till I finally hear a song from you

I'll give in to you

I'll sing with you

I'll sing for you

 

I've got too much weight tied on me

by men who want to sell me fear

They tell me everyone disowns me

But as they're yelling at me

I close my ears

Turn my head and look away

And see all you gave me

 

I have wasted forty hours

I have wasted thirty years

But recently I have been thinking

I need to go back to you

And find my name

I hope that when you see me there

You will save me.
