"Salt Year" as written and performed by Chris Phillip Bathgate....
Seventeen years before
Yeah I should’a hauled off and kissed her
Now I lace my wine with ginger
Just let my evenin’s pass,
They pass, they pass, they pass,
They pass

She’s whistlin’ in a candy store
And I’m just screamin’ in the dark here
I’m just chokin’ down a salt year
When sugar’s all I’ve longed for, all I’ve longed for,
All I’ve longed for


Try again

Try again

Try again

Try again


Seventeen and there she stood
A photograph in my doorway
And I felt all my light leave me
My thoughts all tumblin’ under, tumblin’ under,
Tumblin’ under

After then my days resigned
To static and grey hair and soft cryin’
Like a cracked crystal secondhand wind chime
Just clangin’ for a lover, for a lover,
For a lover


Try again

Try again

Try again

Try again
