about

ALL PROCEEDS FROM THIS TRACK WILL BE DONATED TO THE NATURAL RESOURCES DEFENSE COUNCIL.

Wrote this little number for my good friends Brad & Alyona, who tied the knot this past weekend. I spent almost ten years sharing musical adventures with Brad. We played college bars, tore up Broad Ripple clubs, and would never even hesitate to jump in the car and drive a whole day to see a show… And man, I’m just so happy you’ve found a soul mate that lives and loves music just as much as you do.

I was thinking about this before we flew out to San Francisco to celebrate with them, and figured I’d try to write a song about the music we all love. It all came together pretty quickly, and though it will probably be on my upcoming EP, I wanted to share this little demo before then.

Congratulations again guys. Thanks for including us in your big day, and we wish you a lifetime of happiness.
-D

LYRICS:

Well you came back to Shelbyville
And you dug my heart up out the ground
And you swam in the river while I went drinking
Won't you come back home before I drown

Well I told you when we met back then That I would break instead of bend
I set out running away from the trouble ahead

So hey, darling please
Won't you carry this heart for me
And I know it's a heavy thing
But I'll waste my time with you if you believe

Well I'm gone back to San Francisco
I'll see you married by my side
And no matter how the world is spinning
I know I'm safe with you tonight

Well home is where I want to be
When things are falling down on me
You know you're holding on to all my dreams

So hey, darling please
Won't you carry this heart for me
And I know it's a heavy thing
But I'll waste my time with you if you believe

Oh Annie, I was burning down my house when you came home
Aw honey, won't you bring your chilly water to my soul
And maybe this will last forever
Maybe we'll burn bright and bold
Just like the fire in my bones

So hey, darling please
Won't you carry this heart for me
And I know it's a heavy thing
But I'll waste my time with you if you believe

So hey, darling please
Won't you carry this heart for me
And I know it's a heavy thing
But I'll waste my time with you if you believe
I'll waste my time with you if you believe
I'll waste my time with you if you believe
