lyrics

On The Way To Ashfield

On the way to Ashfield, you and I were singing
Driving in a Volkswagen van
I had a dream I met the man of your dreams
He said “you got to tell her where I am”

And I’m fine
Every day, every time
I’m fine
Either way

I was getting sleepy, you said that you had to pee
So we pulled in to Elmer’s store
Pancakes and maple cream, life is nothing but a dream
So yes I’ll take a little bit more

And I’m fine
Every day, every time
I’m fine
Either way

On the way to Ashfield, you and I were singing
Driving in a Volkswagen van
I had a dream you met the man of your dreams
And everything was just like you’d planned

And I’m fine
Every day, every time
I’m fine
Either way

And I’m fine
Every day, every time
I’m fine
Either way

Ferguson credits its sonorous voice, combined with the perpetual fog and clamminess as instilling in her the baseline aesthetic of melancholic optimism that permeates her words and music today. ... more
