about

Recorded and mixed late into the night at Patrick's studio, Unseasonable Sound. This song is normally performed by my band Traveling.

lyrics

Down Here, stuck in solid ice, there’s not a lot of things I wouldn’t do. I couldn’t spend more time with you if we were rafting on open seas. Back home I was frozen with indecision, too many options, no real plans. Down here there’s no demands except work and warmth. You have to agree, we’ll be bunking here tonight, if we weren’t feeling right, we’d still be bunking here tonight anyway. I felt like the unremarkable daughter of a famously predictable home. But I'm not some lamb for the slaughter on the altar of youthful enjoyment. I’ve got to feel something real. I came all the way here. Just to feel something real and not escape. Went out on the ice tonight. I’m still surprised when there’s not much to see. And the white’s as black as the blackest sky when you leave the light of base #3. Slipping and sliding along, it’s not the quickest or easiest path to destruction. I want to touch your skin under those layers of warmth and protection. Adrift, a drift, a snow drift, an endless sea. If we pass each other like ships without seeing I’ll lose all desire to see this drift, this drift, this snow drift this endless sea. If we pass each other like ships without seeing, I’ll lose all desire to see...
