lyrics

I have memories of midnight hot springs suds
float to me in my cold winter dreams.

And on that moon-less night when the stars were right,
and your eyes were turned to the sky.

I let you run toward the setting sun,
with the joy that you'd be home by dusk.

But you came back late to a cold dinner plate
with the news - it's our last night alone.

I'm reduced by one, but that one was fun -
and full of love that I never exclaimed.

I'm driving up to Seattle
to bring my boy back with me.
We're driving back from Seattle
eventually.

So now what I'm taught is that love ain't thought
but is free, beyond our control.

Well you know I brought all the love I got
in a sieve that leaked on the ground.

With my own two hands I will work this land,
bringing warmth and promise from below.

I'm a mud-soaked blight on this clear starry night,
'cause I can't see the drops for the rain.

So remembering you is all I can do
to believe that I will love again.

I'm driving up to Seattle
to bring my boy back with me.
We're driving back from Seattle
eventually.

So for now I rhyme just to bide the time
'till I see that you're looking for me.

I'll write "sad to hear", and I'll lend an ear
for a fee - come to the hot springs again.

I'm driving up to Seattle
to bring my boy back with me.
We're driving back from Seattle
eventually.
