This song was written about a friend of mine who was struggling with drug addiction. Todd Chapman played keyboards, drums and bass on this. I played everything else.

Lyrics

Summer days are getting longer
Strings of wisdom getting short
In our minds we fight our battles
Some we win and some we just ignore

I’ve seen you walking through the valley
I’ve heard you creep along the shore
You’ve thrown yourself into the rapids
When the water makes you cold
The sun can make you warm

The girl in green has got you crawlin’
She’s thrown the pearls out the door
It’s just like her to keep you cryin’
It’s just like you to ask for more

I’ve seen you walking through the valley
I’ve heard you creep along the shore
You’ve thrown yourself into the rapids
When the water makes you cold
The sun can make you warm

Up the road there comes a knowing
Down the river comes a fork
You can go the way that never changes
Or you can look for that sunny shore

I’ve seen you walking through the valley
I’ve heard you creep along the shore
You’ve thrown yourself into the rapids
When the water makes you cold
The sun can make you warm
