about

Porch was written sitting on a dear friend's porch shortly after I had moved from Vancouver Island to the big city. I was struck by how different the city looked at night...

lyrics

The mildness strikes me, yay
sitting in the complete night.
And everything is covered in an almost tangible gray
and features are highlighted in concord grape.

Well and the sky pulses,
the veins in the clouds,
rhythmic and soft
with the same energy that hums in my ears.

Flaring bits of light, like you just opened your eyes
invite the shadows to mesh into and in-between.
It's almost like you're looking across a fire rushing pebble and salt.
There and gone all in the same.

Well and the fire pulses,
with the heat of the flame.
With the same energy
that hums in my ears.

And the leaves were like plastic.
Demanding your detail.
So surreal,
like part of a play.
Like part of a play.

And the ground pulses
right under my feet.
With the same energy
that hums in my ears.
