about

Written on a June day after a good jump on a trampoline... this song speaks of the longing of youth and our yearning for youth... of springtime and warm air and the desire to go higher than the trampoline will allow.

lyrics

Trampoline

The sun that’s shining is a blinding thing to see
It breaks the clouds and burns the skin and lights your way, it lights your way to me
The creaking boughs of towering oaks are ancient history
But in their shade we sit and wonder what our lives might
What our lives might be; what our lives might be

And in that open field we find
the trouble that so filled our minds
has gone and left us far behind
tonight…we fall into the sky

Bare feet on branches and limbs stretching out over bent knees
I would surely float away if you were not here holding,
not here holding me
Clinging to a fleeting notion, yearning for the ones you’ve never met
A night to remember, a day you’ll no sooner,
no sooner forget, no sooner forget

And in that open field we find
the trouble that so filled our minds
has gone and left us far behind
tonight…we fall into the sky

La, la, la...

Laughing at the things you said and hiding from the things I’d yet to face
Looking up into the sea, the blue-green foam of summer’s warm,
of summer’s warm embrace
Caution thrown into the wind tied to a string let out slowly as it climbs
And crosses the line that keeps us from the reasons,
from the reasons why; from the reasons why

And in that open field we find
the trouble that so filled our minds
has gone and left us far behind
tonight…we fall into the sky

Fall into the sky (We fall into the sky)
