lyrics

i was seven years old i remember green
i remember throwing stones with my friend brady king
i remember every summer every place i used to hide
and the top of the hill watchin brady's last ride

and me i'm movin slow face to the sky
floating and dreaming on the river of my life

when i was fourteen i had the mind of a criminal
so unwilling to suffer so ready to fight
i had a preacher's eye and this divining right hand
and the shadow of a heart i could not understand

and me on the surface face to the sky
floating and dreaming on the river of my life

now i'm halfway home there is nothin left to fear
warm bodies in the bed there are no strangers here

and me i'm movin slow face to the sky
floating and dreaming on the river of my life
and me on the surface face to the sky
floating and dreaming on the river of my life

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
