Leo Kottke CD Arrives in Mail From Our Good Friend Brady

Tiny Island


I wish I had a tiny island floating in the sea
Palm trees don't get in the way, it's a tropical ease
And everywhere that I keep my silence, no sound returns to me
Just endless waves at the end of our days, the sighing of the seas

But yesterday's gone, I don't know where I come from, hmmm
Wonder where I'm going

The very last time that you saw me off I thought that it was understood
That I'd be gone for a very long time, I might be gone for good
And all that time, all the time, I thought you would never fall
It did not dawn across my mind the time that you lost it all

But yesterday's gone, I don't know where I come from, hmmm
Don't know where I'm going

Sometime's I feel like a tiny island floating in the sea
Palm trees don't get in the way, it's a tropical ease
And everywhere that I keep my silence, no sound returns to me
Just endless waves at the end of our days, the sighing of the seas

But yesterday's gone, I don't know where I come from, hmmm
Wonder where I'm going

I love Leo Kottke. "6 & 12 String Guitar" is one of my favorite discs. No singing on that one, though.

You like Leo Kottke? My favorite one is the one about Santa pulling up snow peas but I can't remember the name.

Blogagaard keeps playing "Tiny Island" on repeat while staring at his dying yellow poms. He's driving me batshit. I mean, this is why I left Hugh in France.

Nice photos on ShortyGrrrl's blog! Blue's a good color for ya.

Brady never sends me flowers. It makes me cry.

Blogagaard said...

oh no, the photos have been discovered. let us simply say that dirty martini was powerful and leave it at that.

Blogagaard said...

Don't cry for Brady, Captaintina.
