lyrics

Don't the days pass by like years and years pass by like moving trains
Don't the pictures we remember turn to stories in our brains
I could pick up all the pieces and arrange them in a line
But I don't know what to do with all these memories of mine

On the weekends I get blurry and I give myself away
I never used to talk this much without a thing to say
I never used to feel like getting lost and breaking down
While I'm down here my mind's a thousand feet up off the ground

I have memories of flying much brighter than a dream
Where the curve of earth itself spreads out in gray and blue and green
If I concentrate I see it from the corner of my eye
I have memories of flying, I've forgotten how to fly

You can tell me that I'm cray 'cause I do it all the time
I know I've traded better angels for my whiskey, beer, and wine
I don't know if I'm staying or if I'm only passing through
I don't know what I remember or what I've been told is true

I have memories of flying embedded in my brain
I wonder where I've been before and whom I might contain
I'm tired of tomorrow but it hasn't happened yet
I have memories of flying I'm unable to forget

I have memories of flying through the rubble and the rust
If a man cannot believe himself whom can he truly trust
I could see the tops of all the trees and brush them with my hand
I have memories I forgot for lack of knowing how to land

I have memories of flying, I tell it to you true
When I'm bymyself they call to me like voices from the moon
And they ring across the neighborhood, the mountains and the sea
I have memories of flying you can't take away from me
I have memories of flying you can't take away from me

about

Jack Hotel Lincoln, Nebraska

Jack Hotel contains multitudes. A listen to their sophomore release, Voices from the Moon, reveals a range that encompasses Ry Cooder and Leo Kottke, Gillian Welch and Townes Van Zandt, Mississippi John Hurt and Etta Baker--but this band is no mere product of its influences. Since their start in 2012, Jack Hotel has proven itself one of the best, and most original, folk acts in the midwest. ... more
