she still echoes (like a summer)

my wife often leaves for months to work on film projects, and her absence always gets me wistful. this track’s more about this feeling than anyone in particular.

summer songs endless skies
a lifetime in each other’s eyes,
but that wave crashed on a midnight drive.

time never meditates
rivers never hesitate,
every choice tempts the fates
and opens up a door.

she still echoes thru my world
but she’s an echo of that girl
who still echoes thru my world

faded paper photographs
washed up on the beach we laughed
as we ripped them all in half,
and traded them for days.

i’ve carried one for all these years
the image’s all but disappeared
faces are just empty spheres
and all those shades of gray.

she still echoes thru my world
but she’s an echo of that girl
who still echoes thru my world

she said, “with you i’d never live a quiet life.”
but she just couldn’t sleep over the marquee light.

time never meditates
rivers never hesitate,
every choice tempts the fates
and opens up a door.

she still echoes thru my world
but she’s an echo of that girl
who still echoes thru my world
