There is something very intriguing about this song to me. Not only that, but Dawes will be here this October for the Southern Ground Music Festival. The festival, headlined by The Zac Brown Band, will include Willie Nelson, Band of Horses, Dawes and at least a few other bands. I really want to go to see Dawes and Band of Horses. Of course I want to see the rest of the artists too, but those are my biggies.
Anyway, I really like this song and the sense of longing. The sense of moving on but not giving up. Or maybe it is a sad song of not being able to let go. Lots of possibilities. You decide. And please let me know what you think.
When it hits me what she’s gone
I think I’ll run for president
Get my face put on the million dollar bill
So when these rich men that she wants
Show her ways they can take care of her
I’ll have found a way to be there with her still
When it hits me that she’s gone
I think I’ll be an astronaut
Make the moon my home and leave the earth behind
So when she steps out into the night
She’ll be facing me every time she shines
