"San Geronimo" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
Somewhere, up fifteen miles
Sifting through crackling vinyl
Lost memories of my youth
Are coming into view

Between lost hills divide
Quietly we sleep inside
Lost summers of my youth
I spent them all with you

Take ways by withered creeks
Lizards sunning in the streets
Small kitten stretches through
Green, empty yards you knew

Weekend in San Geronimo
Love how the starlit skies show
Weekend in San Geronimo
Sentiments within me glows

Somewhere, up fifteen miles
Barefoot on kitchen tile
When nights are warm and true
I'll spend them all with you

Weekend in San Geronimo
Love how the starlit skies show
Weekend in San Geronimo
Sentiments within me glows

Weekend in San Geronimo
Love how the starlit skies show
Weekend in San Geronimo
Sentiments within me glows

Weekend in San Geronimo
Love how the starlit skies show
Weekend in San Geronimo
Sentiments within me glows

Weekend in San Geronimo
Love how the starlit skies show
Weekend in San Geronimo
Sentiments within me glows
Weekend in San Geronimo

    General Commentthis song is terrific, when I need springtime in winter, I put it on...
    Mark Kozelek (RHP's creator) is a GENIUS !
    "Ocean Beach", from which this song is taken, is a true masterpiece.
    Does anybody know if it refers to a real place ?

    General CommentWell, if they are both towns in California it adds to this very peaceful feeling of the album as Mark must like the beach life. When I listen to the album I find it very relaxing as the songs seem so flowing and simple but amazing. I think it is a little different than Old Ramon and other Kozelek albums.

    General CommentSan Geronimo is a town in Marin County, Northern California. There is a place in San Diego called Ocean Beach, but it more likely refers to the one in San Francisco.

    Song MeaningI think it is literally about a weekend spent in San Geronimo when he was younger, presumably with a girl he loved. He's recounting that beautiful weekend with a nostalgic perfection.
