I have often wondered
how come I cant be with you
walkin by myself
down by steamboat slough
when I wrote this song
I went into a trance
and I know theres a chance

back porches
shoutin at the stars
they have nothing to say
and then the closest one
comes and take the night away
thats when my shadow is born
he turns to me and says,
"what is a rose without a thorn?"


from Youth is a Train, released November 4, 2010
