A collaboration with Alfred Howard for the Alfred Howard writes project

lyrics

Can you frame a moment
underneath the waterfall
right off the winding highway
where the time comes to a crawl

And it's green down in the valley
by the river's verdant veins
but I'm walking down an ally
by the newspapers remains
the newspapers remains

We set off to meander
All the treasures of the coast
beneath the redwoods reaching
and the canopy of ghosts
the canopy of ghosts

Patience is a virtue
that I'm trying hard to learn
watch the minute hand as the season's turn
and I'm ready for the silence
for the whispers on parade
to lay down on a riverbed unmade

And will it lay in waiting
beneath the waning moon
that glistens off the ocean
in the midnights navy bloom
Where the shouting of a city
turns to whispers through the rocks
and the wind moves through the cedars
and I listen when they talk
I listen when they talk

Patience is a virtue
that I'm trying hard to learn
watch the minute hand as the season's turn
and I'm ready for the silence
for the whispers on parade
to lay down in a riverbed unmade
