Rihanna by Clean Bandit feat. Noonie Bao

Another summer in Eugene, Oregon is sharply around the corner. This song takes me back to the second summer: Summer 2013, our sky blue summer rental, when everything was collapsing and crashing, tumbling and thrashing, bumbling and bashing,

“The beat was slow…”

Yellow bicycle on the side of the road marked free, we ride around without a care in the world, we cement our lives on the streets of Broadway to be deemed hooligans from the upstairs sort,

“We got down low…”

All the doors and windows open, creates a constant flow of positive energy in such confusing times, we go to the top of Hendrick’s Park to find dreams come to life, no polar bears here but the city serves as the sea of life, meditations every day in this abundant tree conclave, peace of mind,

“Rihanna on the radio…”

Invitations from friends, university boys and the dogs that love them, the tarot boy from the peninsula, the park ranger streetart kid from Philly, Frankie, anyone else, everyone’s invited, we wake up every day in a new place, with new faces, with new presents from the night before, twinkle toes in pumpkin dresses, gettin loud, stupid shit, the kid that wants to fight us cause the mood all changed,

“All of the things that we used to know…”

Champagne and chambord, backyard barbecues where we met Mike and Zuubie, fateful encounters at the Whitaker Block Party, Betsy will make it a month, but she’ll never make it here, we roll around the mountains to California to make up for lost time, one final adventure to cure our restless souls, Christian is happy,

“Close your eyes…”

Afternoons in the warm pools that hug our dismantled figures, we collapse into them, we hiked along the Oregon countryside, the heat calms the soul and I embark on a solo adventure to find cooler streams, this place is magical

“Let me take you there…”
