"Used To Be Alright" as written by and Andrew P/koshowski Koshowski....
It's pretty good, the wine/ The way that we look at/ Ten to eight in the morning/ Just talking, still awake in/ Dawn and dew drinking,
thinking / Always...

Remembering the laughs, the time/ We got high for seven days down/ In New Orleans and it seemed like/ No one else knew we were
just/ The moon and sun in fog before the/ Heat burned it away and took / The sleep from tired heads on/ Beds of reaching hands, of
road trip/ Breath and long tall freedom

And then you long/ For the days of trippin' down/ The long road just reading the/ Signs that show you the way to/ A higher place you
meditate to/ Feel the quiet of the earth/ That was back/ When we used to be alright

Another shame, the way/ The city smells worse on/ A hot day in August...2 PM/ Right before us good movers/ Move and us shakers
break/ Our hearts getting home to / Country love and the garbage/ Dump by the dried up creek/ Near the forest that once had life/ And
then I turn on the news/ Somebody shoot me soon/ I'm tired of over heating, falling/ Quick to bending knees and/ Broken veins, of
always needing/ Faith to get to shore and break/ All the vows I've made

No time or presence / Of mind to wonder why/ No time for questions of/ Why I wonder why/ Something's wrong...again/ The noise
shakes the ground/ There's a rage in/ The crowd and I'm a face/ In the crowd, what's your name?/ You're sinkin' in the sand/ Standing
next to me, a river/ Running through your pants, afraid/ To trust me when my hands / Are helping you

    General CommentI Mother Earth... one of my favs (Edwin days). This one is all about the "days of carelessness." In other words, no worries, just fun... road trips, hangin' with your buds. Getting lost in the world, some great road trip adventure. Until you realize you have to go back home!
