Written just a few months after my mother died. I was walking the best dog beach in Santa Barbara and found myself digging a hole in the sand to lie in, with my dear dog at my side. Letting the earth hold me. Thinking of the signs in New Zealand which say “Give Way” instead of Yield. Thus, the song.
Lay down on the earth.
Shake loose your burden.
Easy as the sun slipping down the horizon,
Give way to the sacred embrace.
