"Mushaboom (Feist cover)" as written by and Leslie Feist....
Helping the kids out of their coats
But wait the babies haven't been born
Unpacking the bags and setting up
And planting lilacs and buttercups

But in the meantime I've got it hard
Second floor living without a yard
It may be years until the day
My dreams will match up with my pay

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old

I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done

How many acres how much light
Tucked in the woods and out of sight
Talk to the neighbors and tip my cap
On a little road barely on the map

Old dirt road
Knee deep snow
Watching the fire as we grow old

Old dirt road
Rambling rose
Watching the fire as we grow, well,
I'm sold

    General CommentI can't believe no one has signed this yet...

    This is a beautiful song, I absolutely adore it. However, I must admit that it was better as a Feist song. Conor's voice is amazing, but he doesn't quite pull this one off. Good, but not amazing.

    General CommentI know he covered this and all, so we can't throw him tons of credit; but I definitely can see why he might have chose to sing it. It seems like something he'd write, with all the imagery and such.

    General CommentThis song is good, but the postal service did a cover as well.
    Which is much better.

    But nothing compares to the original.
