This song came up on Spotify the other day. I’m pretty sure I’d heard it before but when I heard it this time, there was something that really struck me. It was like it hit a chord and I had to make note to listen to it again later.
And listen to it later I did. But this time I pulled the lyrics up and read as I listened. I was immediately brought to tears as I found my heart being drawn to each line, relating it to my life, my experiences, my time in California, my trip to get to get there, my time since leaving and where I am in my life now.
I love when music does that.
“Lately, I’ve been feeling low
Things been moving slow
I could not tell you why
Maybe too much paradise”
“Something came calling and I knew this time I had to go
Three months down the road
I would up in a land of gold
I was head strong with an open eye
And a wanderer’s alibi”
“It was a winding mountain road
Where the sun shine and the air is cold
Another tired town
Where them old folks hang around
They look me in the eye and try to pass me down on what they know”
“Someday I’ll be coming home
Someday I’ll be coming home
With a cast iron soul”
