A work of love composed for Jordan Rahne MacIntosh-Hougham's senior dance show, "the way the night comes/a rainstorm sympathizes/the stars smell/your basement shines"

This was a beautiful and collaborative process into which a lot of people put time, effort, and feeling.

This is a studio recording of the song from May 2016. The piece was played live with the dance at Bennington College in April 2016

So glad to have been there.



Baby, I'm shaking on a dirt floor
Feeling so good praying motherfucker give me more
And I was scared
Maybe it's a good kinda shaking but I've been hurt before

Honey, the world is gonna spit me out
Won't ever bother to swallow, it's tooth and claws
And I'm bone dry
Cracked like California I can't even cry

I'm bone dry

Hey ya, I'm smiling with no warning
Happiness into the night and it's gone by morning
And I'm bone dry
Cracked like California I can't even cry

I'm bone dry
