lyrics

Red cabin, red dusk
Red chair sitting in the last of the sun
Baby, does the day feel long
Watching the screen blow in and the hummingbirds warm?
The lake goes silver, the sailboats lean
The fire escape's made of wood
Upstairs window waving green
To a throat too full to sing any good
In a shake of a tail, another year will be over
Feels like it's just been a Spring and a Summer
Baby, does the day feel long
Watching the sun spread out thick on the warn out lawn?
On the blue and beat up dock
By the curl of the bay when the suds spread out
On Earth, who could fish out a shinier haul?
In the summer sun with the days so long
The next catch seems like a long time coming
You don't gotta say what's troubling you honey

All my thinking back has been
Strung up between two tall trees
Some kind of language learned in the country
Grapes filled with a million seeds each
A wasp along a wooded walk
A pump house overgrown
Baby, does the day feel long?
Outgoing, with a brown leg and a beautiful gun

Say "Land ho!" from your lip's fine boat
And barnacle of teeth below
Baby, does the day feel long
When you can barely see the shoreline from the ship's top crow?
So you say "Hey, can you hear me?
My land, come near me! My love, my song
Don't leave me alone!"
And the day, the day feels long
When the fog lifts to show the mountains
and to show a red cabin in a red dusk
And a red chair sitting in the last of the sun
Baby, does the day feel long
Even after it's dark and day is already gone?
