lyrics

racing the golden sunshine / mama moved west in ‘69 / from Chicago it was salvation / nursed all the wildflowers and babies on the reservation

Phoenix your embers are a masterpiece / Phoenix I know rebirth won’t come without some grief

summer boiled and we’d flee / north to the rains and the trees / write our names in muddy ash with our toes / deep in the dirt of those sleepy volcanoes

yeah, it’s time to fly / gotta fly away
mama got sick / she stayed that way for years / got good at praying and we got real good at tears / she said when I’m gone take my ashes north / oh honey I love the sun but my heart is scorched

now look at me living in the place she fled / dreams of the desert in the cold Midwest / Chicago I drove to you with all my heart / we’ve had our share of flames and restarts
