Looking at those flags, I remembered the first time I saw the wind: Death Valley took my breath away. Now I am dreaming of prayer, of scotch whiskey and long red hair. Today is a good day to come in a good way. I walk to the river when I pray. I know someday soon the snow will fly, and I know someday soon so will I.
I got to spend with you an evening in the casino lights we were beaming, and neither of us was leaving but we found our way. I don't know if you remember? I choose gentle over clever and I stand with all people standing tall.
Well, my love I share with all.
Well, my love, sometimes I fall.
We drove back down to Denver at the end of December. Hey, brother do you remember when our family stood strong? You drove back up to Rapid City, I was glad to have you back so quickly. To our friends we wish a safe return to where the North winds blow and the fires burn.
There is much more work to do, and as it comes we will see it through. It is for the love of life that we will fight, and it's for the experience of love i sing tonight. I don't know if you remember? You said some ties cannot be severed, and when you feel the pull you answer the call. That you stand with all people standing tall.
My love, my love I share with all.
My love, my love sometimes I fall.
