about

Written for our daughter, and spurred by a song she made up. She was born here at home in Horsefly (so was our son), and the entire song is an homage to raising kids on our property here.

lyrics

Oh my girl in the time you were born
There was nothing like you and I knew you were the one
I was born in a time of familiar things
You were born when the apples stopped blossoming in spring

There’s a river below the house you were born
It flows in the summer and in the winter both
When you feel that the weight of the world has come
I will take you to listen to its watery song

Babes, mothers, fathers, written all the same
Leaving this old world behind, shine all the way
Oh my girl

Stars in the sky are shining for you
I wish upon their ever changing evening news
I wish upon the wind and the evening sky
I wish for you to one day know how much I love my child
Then you’ll be a mother with children of your own
And feel the wild blue waters calling you back home

about

Pharis & Jason Romero Horsefly, British Columbia

The songs form a constellation that tells an ancient and archetypal story visible to anyone who looks up at the sky on a summer night. And to all those who listen it whispers down below: “Slow down, dig deep, and love your neighbor.” ... more
