A song written by my friend Katie, put to music by me.


Waitress from the west who wooed me
Wore me well
while a Wednesday wind was wailing
Water starts to move

Letters from your first wife's body
Paper thin, return to sender
When you get them water starts to move

I remember when Bushwick was tumbleweeds
I remember when men would stay
And women they would leave
Don't you know the moon is closer than it seems

Everything in your life will change in two days
So remember this park and this tree
The way it stood
Every common complication will remain
But I still will want to kiss you more than he would

I believe in electric people
I believe that a church and steeple can be good
If we all stop knock-knocking on wood
