about

While Eddie is hard at work producing my new record "She's Gone", I thought it would be fun to go through the archives and see what material I could find that involved Eddie.

This was recorded in the Fall of 2013. We had just recorded "The Pretty EP' and "The Trouble Is...". I thought it would be kinda cool to switch to guitar and do something different. This is all live - one take, no overdubs. Well, that will become obvious when you listen. :)

Track Name: Sister Big Boobs
I saw you heading towards the altar
So I followed along but not for prayer
I wanted to brush by your body
And run my fingers by your hair

Hey sister big boobs maybe we can get together
God told me to tell you to wear that tight sweater

I saw you dancing in the aisle
Yeah you really made me smile
You said the joy was in your soul
How I wish you’d swing around that pole

Hey sister big boobs maybe we can get together
God told me to tell you to wear that tight sweater

Do you ever wonder why I sit with you at the singles meetings
It’s so that we can hold hands when we pray
My hands are getting sweaty
my heart is beating faster now..........
Track Name: I Know You Can Shine Without Me
A million reasons why I love you
A million reasons why I don't
A million reasons I should stay here
And a million reasons why I won't

A million little complications
A million small regrets
A million validations
A million things I want to forget

It's weighing on me now
It seems like that forever is a concept that will never be realized
I know you can shine without me
I never should have tried to illuminate your heart

It's better this way
Cause we both know that the only time
That this has not been contentious
Was the first time that our eyes met
Right before we said hello
Track Name: Little Foxes
Before it breaks
Before it’s over
Before it takes
What’s little left of my soul
I’ll try and shake off these shackles

I’ll try and break

Myself from this self inflicted hell
Cause I know it’s the little things that arrest me

Don't mistake my silence
For forgiveness
I've never been one to let anything go

Gonna add it all up

You may have moved beyond but it’s my burden still
I know it's the little things that arrest me
Gonna mark the time by this miserable wall I build
I know it's the little things that arrest me

It’s the little foxes
It’s the cunning lies
It’s the paradoxes
It’s the hopeless tries
It’s the desperation
It’s the hanging on
It’s the feeling I get when all hope is gone
Track Name: Once
Once you think it’s been collected
The truth becomes elusive
Confounding even wise men

Choosing it's own way
By which it's revealed
In irony it is concealed
Evading every trap laid

Once in the palm of my hand
It all begins to slip away

Contemplating thoughts of ancients
Who grappled with the questions
That only bring confusion

Looking for the clues
To what it's about
Once it's within we soon are without
Any sense of understanding

Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away

And the meaning seems to disappear
Once we think it’s been made clear in our minds
When we stand upon the words we speak
They once again become weak in our mouths

To be enlightened then in the dark
Once all consuming now not a spark
Of former revelation

Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away

Trying to conjure up the meaning
Through mindless repetition
Of words that once transcended

Always in a flux
We try and pin it down
Saying that it's here
When is really surrounds
All our thoughts and expectations


Once in the palm of my hand it all begins to slip away
Track Name: Sirens
How long will I ignore you before it goes away
How long will I ignore you before it goes away
Will you darken my heart
Will you darken my heart

It gets easier every time I turn away
To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along
With the sirens as they lead me to destruction

I know there's no life without you
I know there's nowhere I can go

It gets easier every time I turn away
To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along
With the sirens as they lead me to destruction
And the songs we sing sound so much better to my ears than your voice
I'll make a choice to ignore you while you're calling me back home
