Last Tuesday we stopped into the WGLT studios to record a few songs for them and do an interview with Acousticity host Bruce Bergethon. What a great experience! We can’t wait until our spot airs (looks like it will be Sunday night March 3rd starting at 8pm), and we are so looking forward to continuing our relationship with WGLT. What a great bunch of folks. 🙂 Here are the lyrics to a song I call Black Canyon– I started to write it last July in Estes Park, Colorado while I was there for my brother’s wedding. I was camped at a local campground and one night it stormed, and while I was not sleeping due to the crash of thunder (made all the more intense by echoing from mountain to mountain) lyrics were going through my head. And I knew that come morning, it’d be sunny and warm– as if the night before never even happened. Come here it live this Saturday night at the Coffeehouse in Uptown – 8pm – $5 at the door.

“Black Canyon”
Music & Lyrics by Karen Bridges

The wind here chases itself out of the canyon
Our bodies so close– the air we share is electric
The sky is so angry tonight
The trees are putting up a fight

All is calm when the morning comes, when the morning comes
Bring me down to where the river runs, where the river runs
And I will not be undone

I’ve been to the top of this mountain– I’ve seen the way down
I feel the weight of your world every time you come around
It all comes down to intent
And I don’t intent to live this life saddled with regret

All is calm when the morning comes, when the morning comes
Bring me down to where the river runs, where the river runs
And I will not be undone

We’ve been prayin’ for rain here
We’ve been sippin’ on grain here
We’ve been prayin’ for rain here
We’ve been sippin’ on grain

All is calm when the morning comes, when the morning comes
Bring me down to where the river runs, where the river runs
And I will not be undone, I will not be undone

(Speaking of being at the top of a mountain – the photo above was taken by Nate Bridges from the top of Long’s Peak 07.23.2012 [14,259ft] – while he was there taking in this view, I was writing Black Canyon.)
