Song of the Week #23: “Alberta”

Song of the Week #23 Snow-covered truck

This song, “Alberta,” was written this afternoon and inspired by the photo at left, taken by Canadian photographer Christopher Martin.

Come see my new band, Juno and Jupiter, play it’s first show this Saturday, January 5th at the Drunken Unicorn. We go on around 9:20pm; please come check us out!

“Alberta”

You’re not what you were before
I see you still have your old beauty and your charm, but
You’ve been left out in the cold for oh so long
I’ve not forgotten the way you were before

Roaming the hills of Alberta with you, my old love
Our first summer after college we said fuck it all
Taking only what we could carry on our backs
Oh, I still see you, I still see you, I still see you among those apple trees

It doesn’t feel like it did before
Me so naive to think I could catch those moment in a jar
Now you’re just a sign for someone else’s message
Chucked off to the side and fenced off, kept apart, ohhh, so far

Roaming the hills of Alberta with you, my old love
Our first summer after college we said fuck it all
Taking only what we could carry on our backs
Oh, I still see you, I still see you, I still see you among those apple trees

Furry with snow about a half mile from where we would go
To swim without clothes, sounds of insects and birds
would follow us home

Roaming the hills of Alberta with you, my old love
Our first summer after college we said fuck it all
Taking only what we could carry on our backs
Oh, I still see you, I still see you, I still see you among those apple trees
