Guess it's February again And everyone’s forgetting birthdays Thought I heard someone break in last night But I was only remembering How I didn’t wanna sleep alone I was always the last one to fall asleep growing up At all the slumber parties And the first one to read Walker Percy I think I might be an old man Malaise every morning with my bran Saving all my breath Then correcting everyone to death I don’t fear death, he said Only my lover’s memory loss To be stuck at the end of an unfinished song And the only one still singing the original thought Went to the movies on my own Been awhile since I did it alone Been awhile since I made myself at home Funny how it made you feel kinda close I don’t fear death, you said Not even memory loss Well, you’re always the first one asleep at the slumber parties and you never read my copy of The Moviegoer I’ve been catching waterfalls inside my little coffee cup

Recorded live to tape June 30-July 2nd in Nashville, TN.

“As I went walking I saw a sign there
And on the sign it said "No Trespassing."
But on the other side it didn't say nothing,
That side was made for you and me."
― Woody Guthrie
