a.o. gerber – summers / wait lyrics

Loading...

[verse 1]
emigrant lake in summer:
we all trek to the cove that i didn’t know exists
and when jon drives me home he’ll take a turn up dead indian road
just to watch our home sparkle, shimmering pebbles

that fourth of july when we tried to escape it
and you showed me the creek where you shared all your cigarettes
i can’t walk by without seeing our bare feet caressing stones
i hear the breath of the dogwood teaching us silence

[chorus]
oh, evergreen mountains
oh, terrible stillness
wait for me
oh, table rock flowers
oh, gloaming upon you
wait for me

[verse 2]
the stone that rose out at cape kiwanda
as tall as the dune that we scaled just to see the sh-r-
i took a picture to remind me of the things we’ll all forget
when the moment exhales us: breath on the water

remember smoke in august?
and how we escaped to crescent city just to breath?
and in a seal suit i stood upon a wave for the first time
before we saw that bar fight

[chorus]
oh, evergreen mountains
oh, terrible stillness
wait for me
oh, table rock flowers
oh, gloaming upon you
wait for me
