Occasional Summer - Live in Orlando
The Inside Out Issue #1 /// April 9th 2020
We wrote this song before the present crisis, but it’s rather apropos. We are, in fact, shut under, and a lot of us can't go home. Some us can't even get out into the Spring weather. And digging in the yard is an increasingly popular activity— time to bring back victory gardens. (Or don't make everything about corona— you have our full permission.)
This performance is from February 16, 2020, at the Timucua Arts Foundation in Orlando, an amazing venue we hope to return to. Art by Jim Preston. Video by Benoit Glazer.

Lyrics: EDDA GLASS
There're times, I think I smell the earth,
when everything's shut under—
Everyone else is waiting for the thaw—
on me the wind blows soft—
It's all for you.
I know, this spring is in my mind,
a trick of trickled time—
Occasionally summer visits me in fall—
A private matter after all —
Is that you I saw?
Did I hear you call?
But you can't go back home again, they say—
I say, sometimes it comes your way.
Last March, I was digging in the the yard—
I found a small painted horse,
lost for good and maybe mourned, till now,
like a bottle on the shore,
but it all returns.
I wait for you,
all for you,
all for you.
