The solar-powered space pop combo Grandaddy were formed in 1992 in Modesto, CA, by singer/guitarist/keyboardist Jason Lytle, bassist Kevin Garcia, and drummer Aaron Burtch.

I rode my bike to my stepsister's wedding
and in my backpack was designer bedding
and a gift certificate for a cd or for a cassette

if the wildest boar couldn't see me
then why does boredom at home see me so clearly
like a flashlight in the campfire that fade
forgetting the plans that I made

I didn't get far for how cold it was getting
as I slept in a pile of leaves
I dreamt you were there next to me
you were there next to me
as I shivered that night in the leaves
I dreamt you were warm next to me
you were warm next to me
