Take me down to the Lowlands Where a colorful battlefield awaits Tell me who you are and where you're from Thunder claps and tragedy strikes I find safety falling down the rabbit hole Then I dust off the dollar signs into broad daylight Take me down to the Lowlands Where a garden of daydreams awaits An Irish grin on a French Saturday Turquoise skies and I am nervously brave "Let's jump off this bridge" he says Lose my necklace at the bottom of the seabed Take me down to the Lowlands Where a maze of emotions awaits Up the streets of Brussels, down the road from Hamburg Heartstrings hum to Mumford & Sons Kiss me on the train, confetti falls like rain But then you're gone the very next day Take me down to the Lowlands Where a single sunflower awaits I find a crown in the haystack And the key to an island suite Kind faces and beautiful places match with warm embraces We will see each other again soon, I promise Take me down to the Lowlands Where my dog days await We hit the crescendo, and the clock strikes 8 Eyes ablaze while the sun begins to fade Out of the Seven States of Summer Everything has changed, and I emerge seven years older
I'm a California girl who wears her heart on her sleeve and always has her head in the clouds. I currently live in the Netherlands and am attending university at a small honors liberal arts college in the south. I have an artist's soul, a corny sense of humor, and a ravenous mind that hunts down the meaning of life everywhere I go. I love traveling, learning, questioning, experiencing, and am an anthropology and political science major who loves to write and make up stories about the absurdity of the world we live in.
