Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.

Wild horses couldn’t keep me away

little girls in the city grow up fast

little girls in the city grow up fast

I’ve been following you for blocks and I wish you would stop and tell me your nameBut I couldn’t understand what you told me as you ran awaySo just lay your head down lowDon’t let anybody knowThat its hard to live, its hard to live in the city

I’ve been following you for blocks and I wish you would stop and tell me your name
But I couldn’t understand what you told me as you ran away

So just lay your head down low
Don’t let anybody know
That its hard to live, its hard to live in the city

"Tell us a little bit about the lyrics to "I Should Live in Salt." "

I write all the lyrics, and this one was sort of inspired — very much inspired — by my younger brother, Tom, who’s nine years younger than I am. 

The lyrics to that are like a bunch of little fragments of thoughts about him. And, truthfully, it’s about us actually getting to know each other as adults, because I went off to college when he was a little kid. He was 9 when I was 18 and went off to college, and then I moved to New York after that. And he kind of went his own — a different path.

I felt a lot of guilt, because I think [he] needed an older brother the most when you start hitting your teens, and that’s when I sort of took off and disappeared on him a little bit.

The chorus is, “I should live in salt for leaving you behind.”

Honestly, that was just kind of an abstract image or something in my head and I don’t know. I think Lot’s wife turned to salt when she looked back at the city.

But as far as the song goes, when he heard the song, he thought the song was about salt. He didn’t — he had no idea that it was about him at first.”

Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name
Always remember there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name

All for love and the world well lost…
