(Only) a Forest Song

from Parentheticals (An Album) by Eric Elliott



“(Only) a Forest Song”

On the earliest morning
As the sun became solid
The road stretches on to meet the new day
And the trees were all watching
With the patience of newborns
As the travelers stretched to be on their way

Ever onwards, moving on
Always learning right from wrong

In the stillest of evenings
As the sun begins melting
And the colors diffuse every way
The travelers stand still
Tired and weary
As the wind carries on over the hills

Ever onwards, moving on
Always learning right from wrong


from Parentheticals (An Album), released November 30, 2018
Eric Elliott plays (in order as heard): mountain dulcimer, open tuned acoustic guitar, drums, vocals, whistling

Written and recorded in Seattle, WA and Dallas, TX
