about

Tuning: DAEF#AD (capo II). Chris wrote this in New York thinking about relationships and attachments. It's a similar sentiment to the Passionless Fruit from the Val Holler Band EP.

lyrics

"Willflower"
words and music by Chris Knudson

How will this one begin
A conversation or high-tide?
Perhaps some strangers on a train
How bout vulgar genocide?

He longs to find the holy grail
She models for the boys in blue.
They'd like to stroll the endless hour
They settle for the poison stew.

There has got to be a way
For the willflower to open up the day.

How can I shake this angry dream?
I'm frozen by a heavy hand
A voice that says you'll never leave
The cave of lovelies where you hide.

There has got to be a way,
For my willflower to open up the day.

Gone away, all away…
A gentleman and a scholar worth about a dollar
and a half pack of inspiration.
A mistress and a mother, barely undercover,
blows the fuse then walks away.

How will this one draw to a close
With crystal-magic polar fire?
Perhaps a tropic, midnight rain
How 'bout a bird upon a wire?

There has got to be a way,
For my willflower to open up and stay.
