James Taylor (2000)

By James Moats in Asheville, NC

if i close my eyes and block out the sounds
of a city in the sky i can smell the salt all around

on a bluff where i sit
and if there is a god this is it

james taylor on the headphones
could make me miss carolina
there's no time for that you know

this is one of those moments that will last for all time
and if there is a god this is it

the tide is coming and the stones begin to roll
up and back against the shore
it sounds like traffic below

and now it's an overpass on a highway here at home
and if there is a god this is it
