  1. Travis says:

    I’m Easy – the lyric is so good. Keith Carradine had a way of using unexpected metaphor and simile in his songwriting that gave the end result a timeless quality. “And when your eyes throw light at mine it’s enough to change my mind”. That’s poetry.


  2. *happy sigh* LOVED Colors of the Wind! And Windmills of My Mind. LOL! I guess I’m feeling the breeze…
