From the recording Of Love and Loss
Michael: "When my mom died, I was in London. I got the news in the middle of the night. I was alone. I called Summer, eight hours behind in San Francisco. When I told her, she burst into tears. And then told me to get on Skype. “I want to see you drink an entire glass of water”, she said. “And lie down. And try to sleep. I’ll be right here at my computer watching you. I will watch you while you sleep.” She watched over me like an angel, a cyber angel, and when I woke she was there getting me on a plane to New York and then on to Michigan. Then Summer flew herself to Detroit and waited in the airport all night to meet my plane. And was at my side every day for a week while I buried my mother. Who does that? Serafin love. Irrepressible, irreplaceable girl. The cricket sounding thing at the end of this song was something Summer & I heard while we were staying at my mom's that week. It was so loud we went outside to see what the hell was going on. We stood there in the dark, warm May night, listening. A neighbor ventured out across the street and seeing us said, simply "tree frogs". I recorded a snippet on my iPhone..."
Bury me underground Where I can't hear a sound I'll just slip away Like every yesterday If I could take your place The end you had to make I'd gladly make it mine Bring you back to find All on our own Only alone For anybody else And even for yourself There's no one here to see Still means the world to me All on our own Only alone Send your dark clouds for me What mighta coulda been Can now never be No need to defend We all are in the end Send your dark clouds unto me I guess you probably know Would even tell me so There isn't any doubt I'm never finding out All on our own Only alone Send your dark clouds for me What mighta coulda been Can now never be No need to defend We all are in the end Send your dark clouds unto me So anyway I guess It's only for the best We'll have to leave it there Still clawing at the air All on our own Only alone
