about

I was playing this for a friend and he said it sounded like a christmas song. I think I know how he got there. The rhythm at the beginning is "Be My Baby", a song produced by Phil Spector. Spector's signature production sounds that so permeate "Be My Baby" have now become somewhat synonymous with the holidays, in part because of his even non-holiday use of sleighbells but also because he produced a raft of christmas songs that were released on a Holiday double-album that among other greats included the first and most famous rock & roll christmas hit, Darlene Love's "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)". It makes sense. But the origins for me were more of country-crooning Roy Orbison, and the word-bending poetry of my friend Paul Maziar. Someone else suggested XTC when it got to the bridge. It's all yours, you decide.

lyrics

Indeed I come and do I say I come I
Into the home
And in the ringing bells I widen, you sweeten

I know your wind
“Oh just a breath” you say you “to calm your fear”
Bring back the child I lost I wrinkled up my brow

O the grown man O the down-home
O the pony in the stable stays

So solid we say it is but not so
I called it, I called to you across the cosmos, a city exhausted

O the grown man O the down-home
O the pony in the stable stays

O through the clouded window and in the darkened mirror see
To go too far To burn the sheets To feel no faith - AhhAhh
To close the door and wash the sheets To tell the whole truth - AhhAhh

O the pony O the down-home
O the grown man in the stable stays
