lyrics

a stray dog running through an old train yard
his body as black as smoke
that fills my heart
i am cold by the fire
i'm cold now wherever we are

i have become my father's son
the land a bridge divides
is a hollow place or is not there

hold my hands steady on the wheel
i'm through i am through

count the hours by passing lights
the night is yours my heavy hands
i count the hours by the passing lights
i won't be home tonight
to a scene in shades of white

i combed your hair along the lines
as far as i can see
you are softer now
no one to follow you around
and will always be

holding my hands steady on the wheel
i'm through i am through
counting hours by passing light
the night is yours my heavy hands
i counted hours by the passing light
i won't be home tonight
to a scene in shades of white

about

Spirits of the Red City Minneapolis, Minnesota

We've been touring the country since spring of '09, sharing our music with folks in practically every state. Along the way we've been honored to perform with incredible musicians everywhere from theaters and art galleries to backyards, basements and ocean piers. We feel blessed to have met so many good friends.

Thank you for listening. And for saying hello. It's the best kind of support.
