Recorded to DSD off grid in a cabin in Hamakua East Hawaii, Aspen Rose tells the simply complicated story many of us share. Love? Age? Youth? The finality of it all.



Aspen Rose - David Elias

Aspen Rose your toes remind me of a summer lost
Beauty in the wilderness unspoiled and untamed
Aspen Rose your ruby nose reminds me of another frost
Straight down from the north comes forth
We're boiling tea again

Aspen Rose your blond hair glows as sunrise
Easing up the mountains you're wandering through the pines
Aspen Rose your youth shows silent as the twilight
Settling through the window calming down my inner mind

Aspen Rose recall those nights when we were strangers
Unknowing to the dangers that surrounded us like thieves
Aspen Rose nobody knows how things could not change
We flowed like a river right beneath October trees

Aspen Rose I'll go I'm sorry that I'm weary
Afraid that I have come too far in far too short a time
Aspen Rose your heart's the slowest burning fire
I'll ever know, it's time to go
I love you more than I
