about

Inspired by correspondence written by artist Georgia O'Keeffe to husband Alfred Stieglitz in July 1929, explaining why she wanted to stay in New Mexico instead of returning to him.

lyrics

sun sinking low
mesas burning red
firmament in purple
four winds in my head

trailing on forever
the road stretches out ahead
is this the middle of nowhere?
or is it everywhere instead

Hook:
o, love of my life
you will always be
in everlasting light
your soul shines on me
I blame you for nothing
the joy and the pain
I grow tall and straight inside
and today it rains

sun rises up
the mountain awakes
eastward flies a falcon
in its beak is a snake
then there’s a coyote
through the sagebrush he sneaks
I forget the difference
between hours and weeks

Hook:
o, love of my life
you will always be
in everlasting light
your soul shines on me
I blame you for nothing
the joy and the pain
I grow tall and straight inside
and today it rains
