about

Words and Music by Kimon Kirk

lyrics

An opportunity that landed right in front me, almost like a smack in the face
A big ascending harmony that takes off like a mystery but always winds up in the right place

I could feel it like a thunderbolt, a Brian Wilson powerstroke of genius in an overdriven way
An amalgamated siphoning, a heart attack of timing summing everything you wanted to say

Don’t cry baby, take my hand and come with me
Let me show you, cause I know you
This is all you’ll ever need

It started as a hopefulness, a glimmering -- and I confess -- a sparkle from an older guitar
As Sherwood as a marathoner
Second look and I’m a goner
Wanting just to know who you are

Impurity but nonetheless a miracle of mindfulness
Has prompted sending out of state cards
As earnest as a Valentine
I’m just trying to make you mine
and keep this thing alive from afar

Don’t cry baby, take my hand and come with me
Let me show you, cause I know you
This is all you’ll ever need

You’re the whiskey I was nursing, a blessing and a cursing, a novel from an earlier age
It takes a while before it hits you but I never could resist you
And I’m not about to turn the page

Don’t cry baby, take my hand and come with me
Let me show you, cause I know you
This is all you’ll ever need

Don’t cry baby, take my hand and come with me
Let me show you, cause I know you
And I’m all you’ll ever need
