about

Downtempo indie soul/pop/folk ballad. 6/8 Tim signature. Nostalgic sound reminiscent of old motown ballads. Harmonic vocal hooks and dreamy tenor Saxophone solo. Sorrowful lyrically content delves into personal struggles associated wth coming of age. The principle emotion at the heart of the song is one of longing. The song voices a pining to return to a time of girlish carelessness and imprudence.

lyrics

The featherweight wheels of youth
Spin the shortest distance to
The calls of prudence
Worthy places we might see
But instead we do concede
To the calls of prudence

How I long for a senseless day
A reckless pleasure thrill
To turn my back against the dawn
And let the night go on and on
Unaware and free from care and free to dare to bear consequence

Solo

Worthy people we might love
Worthy dreams worth dreaming of
Abandoned to the calm
Of the calls of prudence
The calls of prudence

How I long for a senseless day
A reckless pleasure thrill
To turn my back against the dawn
And let the night go on and on
Unaware and free from care and free to dare to bear consequence
