lyrics

i can be you
and you can be me
if you give me the authority

running into
fields of green
i see you in a silent dream

cause i am wide awake to the gift
and i am lying down in the way

the girl that i love
is from ohio
she's from ohio
i see her in a soft dress
see her bending time
see her through the laundry lines

so step into my head
light a match and
that's all

i'm breaking even
feeling grace somewhere
in middle america

i have seen god breezing by
underneath a toll booth sky
oil drum is rusting in
my place of origin
i want to release myself
into the day

cause i am wide awake to the gift
and i am lying down in the way

so step into my head
light a fire, i said
i'm willing to break the law
i'm breaking even
feeling grace somewhere
in middle america

about

David Waingarten Portland, Oregon

David plays music to keep himself company. He digs records that sound like they were recorded in bedrooms and basements, and is inspired by the raw intimacy and honesty of Paul Simon, Elliot Smith, Blaze Foley and Gillian Welch. His songs are about healing, living in your car, longing to be found, gratitude, riding subways, finding silence, and stumbling along your path. ... more
