More Info & Ticket Links:


The word that you had found for me,
Was a favorite sound of mine
It swayed under your canopy
To fill the end of time

I was the only one this century
To remind you all is fine
With every truth there is a mystery
With a vision so divine

I wish that I had met you
When your heart was safe to hold
When you were simple and fancy,
In that field of marigolds

And when you burned the sentiment
Like a candle next to mine
The southern wind it kept the flame
Flickering in time

I wanted everything to be confused
And the mission not aligned
But when I looked into your sacred eyes
I was empty with no surprise

And when I wasn’t so happy
I would say a prayer of old
When we were simple and fancy
In that field of marigolds

I wish that I could grow up with you
I wanna see the world the way you do
I want to fall off the edge with you
I want to fun with you

I was the only one this century
To remind you all is fine
With every truth there is a mystery
With a vision so divine

I wish that I had met you
When your heart was safe to hold
When you were simple and fancy,
In that field of marigolds
