LYRICS

Oh, boy o' mine
You smile so big
You’re tall like a cedar tree
And you look funny at me

Oh, boy o' mine
You smell so sweet
Like a mountain prairie in summer’s heat
Make me a bed in your golden wheat

Lover, friend, I can’t call you my own
You’re free like the river
Flow always where you ache and yearn
To my ocean, always return

Oh, boy o' mine
You sit there so strong
Lean with me, grow with me, weather the storm with me
Float here where sweet water kisses the sea

It’s not easy to let you go
Because I want to be the only rowboat your river knows
But if we’re not careful, we’ll block these waters high
No boats, just a dam jealously guarding the sky

Lover, friend, I can’t call you my own
You’re free like the river
Flow always where you ache and yearn
To my ocean, always return

To my ocean, always return
To my ocean, always return

Celebrated for her pure and original vocals and the rich imagery of her song-writing, Wren's music speaks to dreams, the cycles of nature, and the dance of solitude and intimacy. Her third album, due out in fall 2020, is a musical exploration of four seasons in Washington's Methow Valley. ... more
