Martin's Song

When you passed me around the campfire last night
I felt so alive I hoped I'd never go inside that hardshell case again

When Tim played his song, I felt some sort of California high
Like I was playing rhythm at the Harvest sessions only for a moment

This is how I felt, did you feel it too?

When Alita picked me up and sang so gently over me
I felt so warm inside her cradle
My tuning pegs curled up a half a step

When Traci held me by the scruff of my neck
I felt safe, I felt secure
Just like a kitten with its mama cat,
A bird up in its nest in South Yosemite

This is how I felt, did you feel it too?

When Poltz played Paint The Town, the sun had barely risen
It felt so good to stretch my strings
After a long night sleeping in a tent

When you played your song for Luke
I felt so guilty, it's been 4 days
Since I felt his paws across my frets, chanting ma-ma-ma-ma-ma

This is how I felt, did you feel it too?
