about

With CALL ME FROM THE ROAD, the voyage smoothes out a bit. The lyric is loosely based on my discovery of a vintage box of air-mail letters documenting the separation between my mother and father while he was out at sea.

lyrics

This kills me more than i imagined
long distance you
homebound me
i'm not saying you feel different
but you're rolling down the road, and i have to stay

so please
call me from the road
call me from the road
call me from the road
tell me that you'll be home soon

I watched you heading out this morning
rolling your lonely up into your sleeves
with the kiss you swore you're saving only for me
and the promise in your voice makes me believe

when you
call me from the road
call me from the road
call me from the road
to tell me you'll be home soon

On a train to Philadelphia
Or a flight to Ohio
I can trace your travels anywhere you go
And I may only tell you
what you might already know
i'll be here dreaming you on back until
the day you
come on back home..

call me from the road
call me from the road
tell me that you'll be home
tell me that you'll be home
tell me that you'll be home
soon.
