Track Name: 17 Years
The Cicadas tell you to sleep
But they've lied to you before
In your room you heard hardwood creak
and they're crawling up your door

So soothing
Looking for a mate in spring
Soulful crooning
Do you want the same from me?

It's so quiet up here
The emptiness pangs in my ears
The nymphs hide under your feet
They're afraid the cold will make their lovers flee

Let me discover your arcana
And divine your major mind
In my broken down cabana
Keep my tymbals in time
and I'll see you in Atlanta
After Spring
Sedated for you I sing

After all of the hardships
After all of the snow
After every ruination
That I need to help me grow
I need to be gold
I need some encouraging cards
In the fold

Let me discover your arcana
And divine your major mind
In my broken down cabana
Keep my tymbals in time
and I'll see you in Atlanta
After spring
Sedated for you I sing

Seventeen years
Is a long time to fret over fears
Seventeen years
Is a long time to fret over fears
Seventeen years
Is a long long long long long time to fret over fears
