Beautiful Exile

NON-ALBUM TRACK

A friend of a friend challenged me to write a song about the impressions and experiences at a friend's cottage in the middle of nowhere (in Finland). As anticipated, the place was total bliss. The song is like an auditory photograph for me.

 

Lyrics

Beautiful Exile

 

Alright now, here we are

So far, so far...

From any city, street or bar

With our eyes upon the stars

 

When we go fishing from a boat

The lake is shimmering like gold

I take in the beauty that unfolds

No greater peacefulness I've ever known

 

This little cottage in the wild

Gets me excited like a child

Hardly believe I may reside

in such a beautiful exile

 

Sauna's ready, let's get in

Make me sweat just like a Finn

When we're done we'll take a swim

I guess my soul is growing wings
