These words find there place in his song, “White Daisy Passing,”
“Please slow it down
There’s a secret magic past world
That you only notice when you’re looking back at it
And all I wanna do is turn around
I’m going down to sleep on the bottom of the ocean
Cause I couldn’t let go when the water hit the setting sun
Passing white daisies, taking turns
Close the door walk to the street
Catching raindrops on your tongue
And for a minute it all stops
But it won’t last man, just a passing moment gone…”
