From the upcoming album "Bienvenue, New Hampshire," available July 21st 2015.


Now that you’ve gone
The mountains cast
A shadow long

Now that you’ve grown
Your face falls lined
With aging roads

Building a path back home
Following veins red with stone

What is it you were seeking
Far away from my rivers blue?
What wishes did you cast in
The shores of a water new?

Now that you’ve looked
With wandering eyes
With hands that shook

Now with my blood
I offer this:
My oldest love

Come to me, son of the state
Quiet and calm I will wait

What is it I was lacking?
Measure me up against your chest
Is there treasure to be found there
In the hill carving to the west?

Come to me, son of the state
Quiet and calm I will wait
