  1. Black & Mild
In cart Not available Out of stock

"Black & Mild" was inspired by watching my mother being a parent & wife. She took care of myself & was there for my dad, took care of the house & laundry etc. Often I would see her setting at the table gazing out the window. I could only imagine she had to wonder if there was more out there? more than just being a wife & mother. She wasn't unhappy at all, but in those displaced moments she would joke about running away with some character form a novel series she was reading.

Lyrics

"Black & Mild"
She says she would like to go somewhere, feel the wind in her hair.
She's tired of livin this life one day at a time.
In her dreams fairy tales & fantasies that she knows so well, & all the secrets she keeps locked away inside.
No there ain't nothin wrong, no reason to be cryin.
She just keeps on tryin, just keeps on smiling. But she screams
"Chorus"
Hold on to me one more time now, take me out of this place.
Can't you see that I need you tonight yeah, need to feel your embrace.
It's been so long since I've felt this good & I want to share it with you.
I've thrown my candles now into the wind I'm gonna run away with you, gonna run away___.
She finally opened up her eyes to this sheet of time that they call life.
there's a brand new smile come shining through.
All those lost yesterdays that have been begging for tomorrows, well they ain't alone anymore, no they ain't alone.
She feels like dancing, she feels like dancing, she feels like dancing___ on the sun again. But she screams
"Chorus"
Hold on to me one more time now, take me out of this place.
Can't you see that I need you tonight yeah, need to feel your embrace.
It's been so long since I've felt this good & I want to share it with you.
I've thrown my candles now into the wind I'm gonna run away with you, gonna run away___.
