„That‘s me on guitar …“

„That’s me on guitar, Steve Howe-style

I’m in the seventh grade, listening to The Yes Album

I love you, Steve Howe, you inspired me

Like how hopefully I’ll inspire others

I got a Gibson ES-175 Sunburst just like yours, down to the very year

Actually that’s not true, it’s a ’66, I wish it was a ’64

One day, I hope it will be hanging in the Mark Kozelek Museum

And maybe that crystal that I took from Jim Morrisson’s chandelier

Maybe postcards sent to my father from around the globe

I just gotta find a spot near my home

Or my other homes far away from home

Maybe Sweden, cause I believe I lived there in another life

Maybe further up northern California

Because my happiest memories were fishing up the coast

Maybe my birthplace, Massillon, Ohio, because that’s where it all began

I don’t know, but my guess is right here in San Francisco

If my legacy can afford it“
