lyrics

Above the Bridge
This is not a lecture.
It’s not a lesson or a speech
It just a list of things I’ve learned
on the path to goals I will never ever reach

This is not statement.
A declaration of the truth
Just an account of things
that happened on my way to Duluth

Minnesota is coming fast
My frozen heart is in my past
I’m not sure why I’m leaving this place
My baby, the Upper Peninsula

This is not a regret.
About the choices I have made
I fought so many demons
In the form of asphalt, snow and rain

This is not a knee-jerk
A backlash against the truth
Just an account of things
that I saw on my way to the boot

Louisiana is coming fast
My frozen heart, is in my past
I’m not sure why I’m leaving this place
My baby, the Upper Peninsula

A little Yankie-doodle lagniappe
For all you kids in the swamps
Although I love it, I miss it
It’s a part of me, I miss you – The U.P.

Say ya! Ya!
To da U.P. eh? Eh?

Although I love it, I miss it
It’s a part of me, I miss you – The U.P.
