lyrics

come to me my queen
leave your blues in the night
waste out this room on love and light
as we fall in the quiet between

descend your wishing tree
new to the sound and sight
finding the glare too much, but it’s right
if you draw in closer to me

how were we not gonna fall?
tell me how were we not gonna see?
the answer, so plainly drawn
that you are what I need

sit close, out of sight
forever, you’ve laid on my mind
sweet to touch, I am burning and blind
singing out to your cues of delight

old trust, frozen in kind
a pickup that never would leave
connecting the dots with complicity
soul to soul this is our only crime

how were we not gonna fall?
tell me how were we not gonna see?
the answer, so plainly drawn
that you are what I need

climb off your starry ride
spin on a wind and a wheel
stepping away, she is stunning and real
left alone with the stone inside

how were we not gonna fall?
tell me how were we not gonna see?
the answer, so plainly drawn
that you are all I need

how were we not gonna fall?
tell me, how were we not gonna see?
the answer, so plainly drawn
that you are what I need

about

Hank Barbee North Carolina

Guitar player, balladeer, and self-reflective life-mender all rolled up in a lanky package of boyish charm. ...an interesting evolution...combine dirty blues, roots-rock, thumb-style "Travis picking", surf, dixieland and western swing… throw in some heavy life experience and meaningful lyrical content… what’s for dinner is a rich stew of the last 100+ years of American musical heritage... ... more
