about

From "Songs From Abroad" (2014)

lyrics

There's cities made of iron,
Cities made of clay
And I left a city made of fire
This time yesterday
And I broke some bones
Skipping stones
In a city made of glass
But there ain't no city
Nearly as pretty
As the view of Deception Pass
No, there ain't no city
Nearly as pretty
As the view of Deception Pass

I've traveled with the Sirens,
Learned their lonesome song
And the longest train I ever did see
Was a million boxcars long
And I had my way
And spent my pay
With many a beautiful lass
But there ain't no beauty
From Mazama to Missouri
Like the view of Deception Pass
No, there ain't no beauty
From Mazama to Missouri
Like the view of Deception Pass

If you're feeling tired,
If you're feeling weak,
The rumbling of the water
Is the company you seek.
Oh, the sun and the rain
Will dull the pain
As you lay down in the grass…
'Cause there ain't no city
Nearly as pretty
And there ain't no beauty
From Mazama to Missouri
And there ain't no place
'Tween the earth and space
Like the view of Deception Pass
No, there ain't no place
Between the earth and space
Like the view of Deception Pass
