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..........

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

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

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

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

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. :)
