Elixirs
I wasn’t quite prepared for this, I know
My hands still haven’t got used to the ropes I promise I’ll grow stronger as we go
I’ll get a tighter grip here for the pull
But I’m taking a drink from the fountain I’m trying the elixir of youth
I’m coming on down from the mountain I’m re-reading the whole book of truth
That calories were burning at the door You’ll have to carry me from off the floor I wasn’t quite prepared for this I know
I grew up a featherbed at home
But I’m taking a drink from the fountain I’m trying the elixir of youth
I’m coming on down from the mountain I’m re-reading the whole book of truth
I’m coming on down from the mountain with some wisdom that’s on my tongue I’m taking a drink from the fountain
So I’ll make the day like I am young
Song Comments

Touchstones
floats on the violins, starts slow but builds strong, "I'm takin' a drink from the fountain/I'm coming down from the mountain/ with visitations on my tongue...'


they got the stuff
cinematic song provides elixir for all that ails you. This song is gently moving and resembles a rock opera in itself.


HILLS ARE ALIVE WITH SINGING BIRDS
fountains, mountains, and growing stronger, stellar vocal, pretty guitar, bvs, production, cool dynamics...
