Western Wind
(by Connor Garvey)

I am sleeping in my car on the side of the road
somewhere in Oregon wood
It’s as beautiful now as it is lonely I’d take you here if I could
It’s a tight squeeze love for two, but I’m willing to try

Because the summers been too long
I am turning this car around
Yea the summers been too long
Western wind help me cover the ground.
I’ll be home when the leaves turn
But I’m turning first, yea I’m turning first, I’m turning now

It takes four chords now to paint you in song
last year it took me more.
I was half diminished and I hid you in augmented hues
I’d show a crack but not whole door
It’s a tight squeeze love for two, but I’m willing to try


Each breath I breathe is carried east the wind will lay it at your feet
and make the roadside grasses dance and give this distance love a chance
over river gorge and Cascade Mountains, Idaho with hot spring fountains
to Iowa down the Mississippi, kiss the wind girl if you miss me.
Heartland football & domestic beer, the wind picks up its kindness here
and wears it like an autumn cloak through the cities of the eastern coast.
After mountains green and mountains white, the freeze thaw of September nights trees all race to drop their leaves but baby wont you wait for me!
Cause I’m turning first...
