During years of songwriting, a celebration of spring is bound to happen.


Cross the bridge to my little town
takes me over the river
but I'd rather be going down
while the light on the water slivers

Everything's green now, everything's callin'
Everything's everything, gotta quit my stallin'

Long to be on the other side of that glass
kitchen window holds me fast
with the leaves on the trees of the sassafras
I let my wintery past pass

In the back of the closet, winter dreams get shoved
spring's gonna let us shed our fear
chocolate and oxygen spur us to love
let's get the hell outta here
