about

This song came to me in a dream, as did the album cover. Really! I dreamt of a celeste green cruiser bike with the name Astrid written on the crossbar, that it would be on the album cover, and that I would write a song about it. And so I did. As it turns out, I used to ride my bike all over the city of Saskatoon. My cousins and I would go on bike hikes and explore abandoned buildings and get into mischief. I'd go to visit my Granny Pritchard too, who lived on the wrong side of the tracks, but we all did then. See if you get the play on words.

lyrics

When I was a girl I rode all over town
You always came with me sun up to sun down
We travelled the world within Saskatoon
Went up on the train bridge we couldn't look down

There was me and my cousins feelin' so proud
In abandoned houses but we were so loud
Randy went up those stairs no light in the lair
I stayed at the bottom cause I was too scared

Astrid, let's run away Astrid
We have no master
We can go faster and faster
Astrid
Let's fill up your basket
We can go faster
We can go

We rode to my gran's on the west side of town
Eating tomato sandwiches fresh from the vine
With a grin she told me she went to confession
Cause she bought hot coffee she's now in heaven

Then we'd stop to see Shirley on Avenue G
On the steps of the bingo she would tell me
of boys she liked, then she'd steal a smoke
Then onward we went destination unknown

Chorus.. Astrid

Under streetlights I'd sing to you like Stevie Nicks
Dreams amidst Autumn Leaves having our kicks
Then the snow'd start to fall and I'd put you away'
And wait for next summer to do it again
