Earth was the constant noise of crickets, and winds, and birds”

At a little wooden cabin
Up in northern Minnesota
We ran together down to the dock
And you jumped right off it

And from out in the water
You called me to join you
And I said, "Baby, I cannot swim
If I jump, I'll surely drown you"

You said, "Life has no limit
If you're not afraid to get in it"
And oh, baby, I jumped to you
Since then there's nothing I can't do
-Mason Jennings

Miles and miles the wheels are still in spin
We’ve seen it all arise and fall again
You and I still the best of friends
It’s almost over now
And it’s almost over now
