about

This romp was inspired by the long winter nights where Katie was stuck indoors working on her dissertation. It offers a fun look back at a not-so-fun moment of her life. I was by her side for the whole ride.

At the beginning I yell 1-2-3-5, and although it may come off as a lame joke, this was actually Katie's address in Columbus, Ohio: 1235 Highland Street. To dig even deeper into my well of inside jokes, before the first chorus I yell "4-3-2-0 One of these days" -- 43201 is the zip code for Columbus, Ohio. #seewhatididthere ?

Also I mention caves a lot. We live on Nellies Cave Road now in Blacksburg. I can't stop making (lame) jokes.

lyrics

(1-2-3-5)
Highland Street
Where I want to be
With my girlfriend Katie
While she's dissertating

Highland Street
With electric heat
Where I do my laundry
In the bathroom for free

(4-3-2-0)
One of these days
We'll move from this place
No telling when or where
One of these days
We'll crawl out of this cave
And find a new place to share

And maybe you'll marry me
But for now we need is

Highland Street...

(1-2-3-5)
Highland Street
Was our winter retreat
Where we would turn the heat up
And strem Netflix for weeks

One of these days
We'll move from this place
No telling when or where
One of these days
We'll crawl out of this place
And find a new cave to share

And maybe you'll marry me
But for now we need is

Highland Street...

barrow burrow Blacksburg, Virginia

Barrow Burrow’s name comes from the winter I spent in Alaska, where out of necessity, I discovered that I could write a song. Barrow - the northernmost town in the United States - signifies my relocation north. Burrow - an underground home a mammal lives in to protect itself from harsh weather - signifies the time I spent recording in my apartment waiting for the winter darkness to subside. ... more
