about

Inspired by "A Walk In The Woods" by Bill Bryson
A landscape of violin weaves through a song about disappearing wild places.

lyrics

My grandmother's grandmother walked in these hills
In the shade of the tall pines where the winding river spills
I trace the footsteps that she left long ago
Her wildflower paths replaced by asphalt roads
I know you need this land to feed the ones you love
But how am I supposed to raise my cubs
Somewhere in the nowhere is where I need to be
Where I can be wild and live peacefully
Everywhere is somewhere now, I hope you'll find a way somehow
To leave a little nowhere in your somewhere for me
My grandfather's grandfather lived on this mountain
Forty generations before anyone was counting
He was a hunter and he was strong
He knew this place was where he belonged
So when we meet each other out there on the trail
Remember this was my home before Columbus sailed
Somewhere in the nowhere is where I need to be…
