    Geez, Hal, this is a hell of a songwriter. Thank you for introducing me to him.

    Lyrics:

    I guess I’ve got a taste for poison
    I’ve given up on ever being well
    I keep mining the horizon
    Digging for lies I’ve yet to tell
    I wish you were here to softly say my name
    Calm down all the chemicals tearing through my brain
    I don’t think I’ve missed you this much since I was seventeen
    I’d call you in the morning but I think this is a dream
    Cherokee
    Cherokee
    Where you carved those doubts right out of me

    I see you shining through the treetops
    But I don’t feel you pulling strings anymore
    I still use your old alarm clock
    Every morning I get further off the course
    And don’t I hear you speaking in the noises in this house
    Airplanes flying over shaking all my secrets out
    But darling tell me something I don’t already know
    I’m aware of where to find you
    It hurts too bad to go
    To Cherokee
    Cherokee
    Where you carved those doubts right out of me

    I felt like the world was burning
    You had stars in your eyes
    Shining for a feeling that I can’t afford to buy
    Everything you taught me still rattles in my head
    I’m staying off of Main Street
    You’re talking to the dead
    In Cherokee
    Cherokee
    I wish you’d carve these doubts right out of me
