Prairie Song

[BC Solo]

"I took a break, and decided to play "prairie song," which is a lot easier to play technically. I got myself into the right space, started, and was on a roll emotionally when one of the camera operators shifted in his seat, making a huge squeak that filled the room. I had to stop because it ruined the take. I started over, upset, and started messing up again and again.... I would make it about 45 seconds in and then ! mess up.... I started having a meltdown...." -BC blog, 2004/04/13

 

Lyrics

i will sing for you/a sunday song
of a prairie lost/to open arms
consider now the charms that you hold
inside her belly gold
so follow me/where i go
to the stuff of sleep/and falling snow

i'm a simple man/i have no one
i walk the streets in dusk/to find the air
sometimes i dream i'm alone
asleep on the prairie grass
now at last/now at last
the world will sing for us
now at last/now at last

upon the river dread/i drew forth
the very face of death/for her corpse
i played so all within
would come and watch
a gaze away from her is what i'd bought
so follow me/where i go
to the stuff of sleep/and falling snow

as my city burns/her boulevards
i seal my love in fate/and now this comes
my prayers are real and i can't rest
to watch prairie songs
from dragon's breath

now at last/now at last
the world will sing for us
now at last/now at last
the world will sing for us
now at last/now at last

city long ago/i was your son
i wed your daugter fair
and i was yours
you called me to come
and sift your roads
to sing prairie songs
and keep the cold
so follow me/where i go
to the stuff of sleep/and falling snow
