The most difficult song on the album to record and to mix in a version we were happy with.


Deadwood bridge
Meet me by the station at the deadwood bridge
Bring a piece of everything you’ve been
A star that guides a thousand periled sailors home
Just so they can all drown in their dreams
Meet me at the cloudburst by the deadwood bridge
An eye out for the place to say goodbye
Held you in a backwater you tied my hands
You said all the better for to fly

You won’t have to cover for me
When I’m gone the price that vice will pay
For virtue’s only child
Will hold her ground and not be swayed

Meet me where the maple shades the deadwood bridge
Stay until you see the dying sun
Should I lick the wounds or push the splinters in
And taste the barbs that I’ve sown upon your tongue
Meet me where the pondweed fills the deadwood bridge
Butcher birds will take it all apart
Sky holds too much light and the time to go
With the feathers you have placed inside my heart


from Birds of Plenty, released February 17, 2020
