Crickets & Lindstroms is about making a visit to the past to make peace and move on. It features Lori on her father's treasured Martin guitar, and was recorded on Boston's Beacon Hill in 1998. The world has changed a lot since then. But the idea of coming home, only to realize you can never go back, hasn't.

Something's the Same,
My fingers never lie.
Where is the frame?
Holding up my life.

Wonderous one.
The moment I become.
Left to live,
The things I am inside.

I'm always wishing,
For something new.
I started getting things,
Since I met you.

Pavement and gravel,
Falsehood and truth.

My history lesson,
Feeds me my youth.

Earth of my birth,
My time here is through.

Crickets & the Lindstroms
Are driving me to you.

Moments of decision,
My mind takes me home.
Clock in the dark is the spark of my drone.

Glow of the streetlights,
Hangs on the wall.
The room seems much smaller,
Or have I grown taller.
