Happy Purple Desert was a collaborative song written between me and my Instagram friends. visit travisehrenstrom.com/happy-purple-desert-an-instagram-song for the full story.


You planted roots in the dry dark canyon
Shallow still, life is fragile
When it rains, you feel it in your bones
Awake in wonder, it just takes time you know?

I came to you in the strangest weather
Made my home in dust and sunlight
When night comes, I always dream straight through
In the day, I’m growing close to you

Desert Rain, I know it will
Desert Rain, I’m smiling still
Out here we bloom
In violet hue

Seasons Change, love Is fleeting
I called your name and it bears repeating
Somewhere deeper down, I’ll get there soon
If takes all my life, and it takes all my heart, I’ll do.

Cowboy stands in waste high water
After the flood, all wrongs forgotten
He sees us swaying and humming a tune
Takes one last look, smiles, moves on

It’s our life, we’ve finally made it,
In our hands, the perfect patience
All these years gone by such a thing to tell
In our happy wild home, yeah it’s just as well
In our happy wild home.
