walking on a river

from dog years by Teddy Quinn



this song came in its entirety on my favorite walk, in the wash, with negra. my partner thought i was in love with someone else and i started to wonder if maybe i was a little bit. once my partner had left, though, that other person stopped coming around as much and i realized i was only trying to fill some kind of void that loneliness had created. not that i couldn't have loved her, too. what does it mean to be in love? it may be as simple or as complicated as someone who loves the same walk that you do. vic played the piano on this and i didn't let her do a second take.


i'm walking on a river
dry as a bone
hope i can forgive her
for all that i have done
we used to walk together
best friend i'd ever known
now i'm walking on a river
a long way from home
see the gold in the silver
that dances on a stone
now i'm walking on a river
dry as a bone
