now I drag this racing river
towards a sea that’s never full
baptized by a belief that I might be satisfied
at once, a vision comes to me
outside the forest and the trees
a magnolia set apart from the pines
what if this race towards the horizon
where I’m trying to catch the sun
is really just a hope to outrun it behind me
and this perception in my mind
that I have anything to prove
is as fleeting as the falling of the leaves
and the leaves they fall
and I keep running
what if I choose to hitch the horses?
pull my name and cash my chips?
would you still regard me in your favor?
because I’ve been living in the lie
that I could be so satisfied
by singing not for love, but for labor
I haven’t slept on a Sunday night
since I was 16 years old
and now I crave the silence of a willing surrender
and let go this narcissistic notion
“to live fast and die young”
when life has become a much more thrilling adventure

Micah is one of my favorite songwriters around, and also an all around gentleman and scholar. Both his solo work and his work with Two Cow Garage seem to work their way into my regular music rotation with ease. doug shaw
