lyrics

Rocking Horse – Doug Allen

I didn’t say a word as you turned to walk away
After all what could I say
You were perfection, personified
Still pretty in my eyes

The rockin’ horse we tried to ride
Was much too gifted and much too wild
You throw a shadow, and draw it out
Weave it into a lingering doubt

But don’t leave your reflection in the mirror
I don’t need reminders that I couldn’t keep you here
I don’t need your echo, softly ringing in my ears
Don’t leave your reflection in the mirror

I’ll miss the letters you may not write
I’ll still wonder if you might
Keep the memories, that we hold dear
Burn the ones that got us here

You sat beside me in that Ford Fairlane
Crabbing down that blue highway
Soft suspension in the fading light
Road to nowhere and goodby

But don’t leave your reflection in the mirror
I don’t need reminders that I couldn’t keep you here
I don’t need your echo, softly ringing in my ears
Don’t leave your reflection in the mirror

about

Doug Allen Bellingham, Washington

Big Timber is my second recording, reflecting what life has been like for me in the northwest corner of Washington state. It was long in coming but I'm proud of it and The Union Wage. Please listen to some of the tracks - I hope you like it.
