about

My first album (!) was an experiment to pick ten songs, mostly new but some old, and hammer them out into multi-layer tracks, on my own. Before this, arranging, producing, mixing, and mastering were jobs that I'd never taken on, so tackling this project was daunting. Thanks to my sweet little family, a couple laptops, a small apartment, and several late nights wearing headphones in the dark, what seemed impossible could be accomplished and now I have my organic contribution to the time capsule.

Track Name: Wishbone
Broken down and banged up / Working hard and playing rough / Now grab an end and make a wish / That every day can be like this, and then // Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together / Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together // Beat up, black and blue / Filled the day, made a mess or two / Now grab a wing, let's cause a scene / Tomorrow brings another dream, and then // Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together / Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together // Beat down, falling apart / Bodies sore, but full of heart / Now grab my hand / And let's jump in / No time to waste / Only yarns to spin, and then // Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together / Let's / Let's grow / Let's grow old / Let's grow old together
Track Name: Stumbling
Hey, look at what I did / Do you want to hang it up on the fridge? / One day let's sit down and talk / One day let's go for a walk // When we finally find the time / When we finally find the time / Wherever you go, I will be stumbling right behind / When we finally find the time // I've got a story to share / And I've got it written down there / Books in a wooden box / Behind the attic locks // When we finally find the time / When we finally find the time / Wherever you go, I will be stumbling right behind / When we finally find the time // And I rock this steady soul to sleep / And get knocked down into dreams so deep / And when I wake up in this bed / I will try to empty out this head / Of all that we've said // I've got a song to sing to you / And so much damn love to bring you / I've got a lot to offer / A sea in a drop of water // When we finally find the time / When we finally find the time / Wherever you go, I will be stumbling right behind / When we finally find the time // Hey, look at what I did / Do you want to hang it up on the fridge? / One day let's sit down and talk / One day let's go for a walk //
Track Name: The Sky in Your Room
Massive fires sweeping in / Turning forests into dunes / On the shoreline learn to swim / You'll need to build your own pontoons // And they say there's no need to think / There is nothing we can do / Close your eyes and go to sleep / What color's the sky in your room? // Blackbirds falling from the sky / Pile like trash in Kathmandu / Fish with crude oil in their throats / Swim in radioactive pools // And they say there's no need to think / There is nothing you can do / Close your eyes and go to sleep / What color's the sky in your room? // Big old sun / Big ocean / Earth rolls on / Overcomes / Days human / Overrun / Earth rolls on / Big ocean / Big old sun //
Track Name: The Biggest Knot
There's a bird in the trees with a song / There's a bird in flight, wings stretched out long / There's a beat in my chest like a drum / Playing cadences one after one / 'Cause our hearts are tied up // So you can untie your boat from my dock / And you can sail off as far as you want / You can leave me right here in this spot / And take away all that I've got / 'Cause our hearts are tied up / In the biggest knot with each other tightly // You wind around every nerve / You tuck away down and then swerve / There's a beacon lit up on the shore / There's an ocean that's beckoning more / 'Cause our hearts are tied up // So you can untie your boat from my dock / And you can sail off as far as you want / You can leave me right here in this spot / And take away all that I've got / 'Cause our hearts are tied up / In the biggest knot with each other tightly // You can untie your boat from my dock / Sail off as far as you want / Leave me right here in this spot / Take away all that I've got / 'Cause our hearts are tied up / In the biggest knot with each other tightly //
Track Name: Feel the Soul
I feel the soul / I lose control / And it won't let me go / I feel the soul // C'mon baby, it's hot tonight / And shakin' it loose will make you feel alright / We're gonna take a trip on some Night and Day / You gotta take a step right outta your own way // I feel the soul / I lose control / And it won't let me go / I feel the soul // I feel the soul / I lose control / And it won't let me go / I feel the soul // C'mon girl, let's get on the floor / The band's in the groove / And they bust down the doors / The beat's in your body and you're moving it fine / We're in the right place and right now is our time // I feel the soul / I lose control / And it won't let me go / I feel the soul //
Track Name: All I've Got
I'm not selling no dreams here / Darling you know where I have been / I've got no promises either / Or the box that I came in // All I've got is me / All I've got for you is me / It's all that I could ever be // I'm not selling a perfection / You know I'm not a masterpiece / I've got a record no denying / But you've got me on my knees // All I've got right here is me / All I've got for you is me / It's all that I could ever be // All I've got is plain to see / All I've got for you is me / It's all that I could ever be //
