District Line (Collab with Pepper Coyote)

Some of you probably know this tune, if you're a fan of Pepper Coyote you probably do since he performs it at nearly every concert he does now! What you might not know is that I wrote the lyrics.

The song's sort of a reminiscence of my days in London and a few past crushes I had there that I wrote in late 2008 when I was feeling stressed.

As for the lyric "Three years gone I still don't know what I was searching for," that has a powerful resonance for me because I figured out what it was I was searching for several years after I wrote this, and it was something far stranger than a lost romance. But that's a story for another time!

Lyrics:

Veins take on the prism
Of hearts' electric roar
Three years gone I still don't know
What I was searching for

Cross the map
Mind the gap
May I have your seat?
My heart is weak!

Calling here, cross the years
Does your heart still beat with mine?
Will you meet me there someday
At the end of the district line

Looking back, fade to black
From a memory sublime
Hope your travel card is good
To the end of the district line

London bridge has fallen
Kentish Town's too far
Waterloo's defeated me
In Richmond shines the star

Through the dark
To the park
There's a vulpine mien
in the sylvan scene

Calling here, cross the years
Does your heart still beat with mine?
Will you meet me there someday
At the end of the district line

Looking back, fade to black
From a memory sublime
Hope your travel card is good
To the end of the district line
