Some quotes from the website:
“Hello It’s Me” takes us through an awkward breakup phone call with a girl, except this time it’s the guy who still wants to be friends. What makes the breakup so awkward is that he actually wants to give the girl her “freedom” which makes it sound more like a hostage situation than a loving relationship.Enjoy this new episode of Smooth Sailing! Next week we disembark and go straight to the dance floor.
“You know that I’d be with you if I could.
I’ll come around to see you once in a while,
or if I ever need a reason to smile.
And spend the night if you think I should.”
Or in other words “Yeah, I think we should break up, but maybe still sleep together sometimes.”
One look into the cold, blue eyes of Michael Martin Murphey and you can tell he’s experienced some deep, haunting pain. And what is this “Wildfire” that he sees in his dreams? Is it just a horse he longs to ride? Nay…it’s much more than that. Could it be that legendary ghost horse the Native Americans speak of? Is it the horse Jesus rides on from the Book of Revelations? Or is it simply a metaphor for lots and lots of cocaine. LOTS. Michael Martin Murphey DEFINITELY looks like a man who loves a little nose candy.
No, actually the lyrics describe a homesteader who hates farming because, duh, and has become obsessed with the ghost of some chick who died searching for her pony, “Wildfire”, during a blizzard. Or in other words, some chick who overdosed on cocaine.
