  1. Forever Young

From the album American Gypsy

The insightful lyrics shine. The instruments combine to make an almost sunny sound, but the lyrics convey a spiritual longing and deep emotion.

Lyrics

We got songs
for the girls up front
We got songs about this and that
But this one here
this one here's for Pat

We were sitting at the bar
with Becca pouring drinks
talking bout the future
and what we think about life and love
and the spirit of music

Then you sang a couple songs
that really hit home
48 hours later, Pat you were gone
Where'd you go
somewhere over the rainbow

Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul singing to the sun
forever free, forever young
Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul shining in the sun
forever free, forever young

Day turns into night
Night back into day
Weeks turn into months
and years slip away
it's surreal the way life
just goes on

Sometimes I smile
at the way that it seems
the last year of your life
you were livin' your dreams
playing sweet sweet music
seven nights a week

Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul singing to the sun
Forever free, forever young

Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul shining in the sun
Forever free, forever young
Forever young (4x)

Hope you made it down to Austin
Your soul shining with the sun
Forever free, forever young

Hope you made it down to Austin
(know you made it now [2x])
Your soul singing in the sun
(I hope you made it now)
(I know you made it [2x])
Forever free, forever young

Hope you made it down to Austin
(I know you made it now [2x])
Your soul shining with the sun
(I hope you made it now)
Forever free, forever young
(I know you made it [2x])
(Made it now)

I know you made it down to Austin!
