40, West Past Thoreau

from by James Britt



A song inspired by trips across the New Mexico desert.


The rain prefers the rusted hills that we've left behind
Recurring sage marks time we're passing in sudden golden trails
Returning softly clouds confer with the patient fields
The light conceding to the road

What other days remain our own with such painted shape
Thoughts tired so familiar merge to our sure escape
It's now our turn to softly sing the lulling hum's refrain
A light preceding for our road
