"Vineyard" as written by and Carl Richard Pierce....
It's six o'clock now in the morning
As I wait for my train to come
To take me somewhere just outside of Boston
As I run to find the other sun

I'm leaving more behind than I care to talk about
Just more pain than this heart and hands can use
As this big world's always spinning
All that I thought I was winning
I never thought I'd lose

This great force it takes me to the ferry
To cross wind and water so untame
I'm on that ship my life just seems so very small
In comparison to everything around

But there's a girl over there, she's got mahogany hair
And her eyes of sweet amethyst
I bow as she curtsies
It doesn't look like she's going to hurt me
So I decide to add her to my list
And she said

Stay on the Vineyard for the summer
Stay on the Vineyard for the year
We'll find a little youse down there in Oak Bluffs
And our children is all that we'll hear

It seems now that I should be going
As that one day turned into five or six
Although I'm loving all the beautiful things she's
Showing, I back up and I'm enveloped by the mist

I think that maybe it would be better
If I just wrote her a letter
But instead she grabs me and we kiss

    General CommentDoes Jackopierce sound really familiar to anyone else? They remind me of some other band, but I cant, for the life of me put my finger on it.

    This is the first of their songs, I downloaded. It's good.

    General Commentjust an amazing song for anyone who has ever been through hell in a relationship then stumbled upon your true love, at a place like the vineyard no less...

    Great lines "I bow as she curtseys, doesn’t look like she’s gonna hurt me "...."But instead, she grabs me and we kiss
    And she said, “You ain’t goin’ nowhere” " great lines...Jackopierce reminds me a bit of dispatch, but i agree there is some other band out there.

    General CommentThis song isn't about true love. It's a fling.

    General CommentI have to disagree with manlt. The constant reference, in the chorus, to building a house and hearing their children suggests it is much more than a fling.
