Summer Grass

Uploaded .

Summer Grass- I didn’t originally intend for this to be the title track, but since most, though not all, of the songs on this album sound like summer to me, I decided, why not? The guitar even sounds humid and warm, but in that nice July way. The church organ was meant to give the song this depth, and I really like the way it turned out, with the drenching reverb for extra measure. So what’s the deal with the lyrics? Have you ever had one of those moments with someone when everything was perfect, even if only for a few minutes? And did you ever have those creeping doubts start gnawing at the edges of your perfection, to the point where you worried so much about them ruining your moment that you ruined your moment? And then you realized it and tried to get it back? Well, don’t over think things next time, savor the moment for what it is, and don’t worry about endings…and here’s a song for you.

...And one of these days you're going to make an all acoustic album. Or else.

This is probably the most tender song I've heard from you. I have felt the same way about a woman, and prayed that moment would never pass even though I knew it would. Nicely done. ER
