Day 218: Gold on the Shore

When we held the Memorial Service for Miles in Lewisburg, I occupied myself with compiling a playlist of songs I thought Miles would have liked. I discovered this song by Ty Segall, and I have loved it since then.

Ty Segall said in an interview with Marc Maron that he did not think much about the lyrics. But I like these words because they fit together so nicely.

A kiss in the wind, tonight, girl
This is the rose that I gave you before
A sweet summer breeze is out there
These are the showers that latch on the door
These are the plans in our hearts
Made in the sun and the gold on the shore
This is the grain in our lands
That fall like the sands and will fly evermore

A kiss in the wind, tonight, girl
This is the rose that I gave you before
A sweet summer breeze is out there
These are the showers that latch on the door
These are the plans in our hearts
Made in the sun and the gold on the shore
This is the grain in our lands
That fall like the sands and will fly evermore

So far away into the sun
And let your minds lead our eyes wrong
Don’t fear change, live some!
