The finale of FLA’s Safe In Sound LP (out February 9, 2023 via Two-Dale Records and Tone Tree Music), “In My Life” is a reflection on the inevitable ups and downs we all experience during our short spins on this beautiful planet. Featuring FLA’s mentors and brethren, Darlingside, the song is a hopeful ballad and vocal tour de force reminiscent of Simon & Garfunkel and Peter, Paul, & Mary.


In my life
I’ve grown upside down
Caught my string on the ground
Where the river won’t run
Where the sparrow won’t dive
Where the spirit can’t sing
And the arrow won’t climb
Oh I’ve seen the sun go down
And the moon on the rise
I saw it all once

In my haze
I faced a dream gone gray
Shaken down in the shade
Of a hollow oak tree
Over honey so sweet
Fought a killer queen bee
Brought me to my knee
Oh I’ve seen a cloud rain down
In the flash of a light
I saw it all once

Woah I’ve been a-running wild
Been a fool reconciled
Mmm mm mm

When I die
Take me the long way home
Lay me down in the snow
Where the sparrow might go
Where the hollow oaks fold
Into a cradle in time
To make a nest from bone
Woah I saw but I went blind
Now we know what we know
We’ll see it all go
