about

written and performed by a melancholy Emma Hitch
Thankful for a best friend
--when you crotchet I feel mesmerized and proud--

lyrics

driving down the windy road
back to the house I used to know
little house on the river bend
the four of us used to play pretend

picking apples as we climb the trees
thought we could fly but we scraped our knees
late autumn walks for asparagus
to get away from the smell of cigarettes

your mom always sang us to sleep
made us french toast with syrup to eat
he left oranges for the birds on the trees
we ate them and sang with the chickadees

it was chaos, it was confused
we didn't notice, we were amused
by the sun, by the water
by the laugh of his daughters

but that one dark night
chasing the red and blue lights
ran after him in our wet stocking feet
as your mom sat on the front porch steps and wept

your mom always sang us to sleep
made us french toast with syrup to eat
he pushed her against the wall
and now I'm watching as your family falls
your family falls
your family falls
