lyrics

I found my legs while running circles in
the temple of the flesh
turning corners in heavy traffic while
the cruise control is set
smiling faces and hiding places
a happy hour somewhere
I remember falling backwards
and losing all my hair

I remember, I remember

I see pictures twenty years from now
the weight of it on our skin
50 percent love and hatred
the rest falling in between
live and let live, give and get gifts
and keep something for yourself
I've been down some but I always made it up
to you and all my friends

I remember, I remember

bringing my girl coffee in bed
crashing my car and breaking my leg
being so blind but still
getting through the forest to you
through the forest to you

through the forest
through the forest

such a morning like I've never seen
if only because I saw it rise
from the ashes of Las Vegas
like paint reaching for the sky
live and let live, give and get gifts
invite me back this time
you're so restless: a caged up tigress
with earthquakes on your mind

I remember, I remember

bringing my girl coffee in bed
crashing my car and breaking my leg
being so blind but still getting through
being so blind but still getting through
bringing my girl coffee in bed
crashing my car and breaking my leg
being so blind but still getting through
the forest to you
through the forest to you

through the forest
through the forest

about

Krister Axel Ashland, Oregon

I started playing piano in White Plains, New York because our black upright piano fascinated me and my sisters hated their piano lessons. That was in the 80's and I have never stopped writing songs. I write love songs and political songs but mostly love songs.

I play a lot of acoustic guitar, some electric, and different kinds of piano plus accordions and harmoniums and other assorted weird shit.
