written at the old Laundry Rules house, Portland, Oregon


hey look at you my dear
from out here things look clear
you turned around to talk to someone
and found nobody there

so you walk out alone
and you walk home alone

open the door a crack
never to go back
boxes falling to the floor
I thought I'd thrown out long before

but I won't be afraid
no I won't be afraid

how could you see a different moon?
there's only one to find
strawberries will come in June
and maybe you'll be fine

will try I will try I will
will try will try
