about

On May 8th, 2009 I finished the first song of a project where I wrote and recorded a new song everyday for 30 consecutive days. "30" is a kind of journal of one summer month in 2009. You can almost hear the sleep deprivation leap out of some of these songs. Writing with such expeditiousness forced me to explore new places with my songwriting and several of these songs have endured as some of my favorites. I hope you'll enjoy.

Track Name: The Ocean
I’m in over my head, in over my head,
The girl’s just like the ocean, that girl’s just like the ocean

She’s way out of my league, way out of my league,
I’m a thousand leagues under, a thousand leagues under

She said we’ll wait and see, we’ll wait by the sea
The girl’s just like the ocean, and I want to know, I want to go

I’m in over my head, in over my head
That girl’s just like the ocean, that girl’s just like the ocean

I’m over my head, in over my head
I’m a thousand leagues under, a thousand leagues under

I’m in over my head, in over my head
That girl’s just like the ocean, that girl’s just like the ocean
Track Name: Bridge To Nowhere
I met you at 10 a.m. on a Friday
You were wearing a black paisley skirt and a long face
And I thought briefly, but completely about one day
But I hardly remember
At least that’s what I say

All the ways I’ve tried, I’m getting nowhere
All the roads I drive, are a bridge to nowhere

Bet you didn’t even think about tryin’
To tell me to my face you were dyin’
And talk about the days you wish you could go home
But by then the train had arrived

All the ways I’ve tried I’m getting nowhere
All the roads I drive, are a bridge to nowhere

All the ways I’ve tried I’m getting nowhere
All the roads I drive, are a bridge to nowhere

It’s a little hard to believe on a Monday
All about what you did on Sunday
You borrowed my knack for wordplay
And I lost my faith

All the ways I’ve tried I’m getting nowhere
All the roads I drive, are a bridge to nowhere
Track Name: Second Time Around
Takes a long long time
Lose yourself or lose your mind
I can hear your voice
I thought your wayward choice

Now how can I explain
That I don’t feel the same
Now my heart won’t make a sound
The second time around

Ask me I should know
I don’t want to let it go
You will never see
When you do not believe

How can I explain
That I don’t feel the same
Now my heart won’t make a sound
The second time around

Why why why won’t you put your arms around me
You wear a thousand faces to see

How can I explain
That I don’t feel the same
Now my heart won’t make a sound
The second around
Track Name: House Of Cards
You know you are your fathers son
Go on and bear it
I remember everyone
The year you had him

And all through the night
You turned

I caught you with your lovely eyes
You were red handed
I can read between the lines
The way you planned it

And all through the night
You turned

Oh my God, that was it
We will never last
Our house of cards
Is falling way to fast

You always were your mothers child
You grew to wear it
You always carry in your smile
How you share it

And all through the night
You turned

I can’t believe the way I lied
I was a robber
I was sittin’ by your side
We went together

And all through the night
You turned

Oh my God, that was it
We will never last
Our house of cards
Is falling way to fast

I saw you on your brothers arm
Your old companion
And I can feel it in my bones
What you were granted

And all through the night
You turned

Oh my God, that was it
We will never last
Our house of cards
Is falling way to fast
Track Name: Fall
It’s water, water
Under the bridge
I won’t remember

Call me, call me
I need some regret
I won’t be waiting

Too late, too late
But I’m not so tired
I could forget you
I wouldn’t try
Fell out of love tonight
Track Name: Our Day
Hold me now, it’s gonna rain
Cover me up with an old magazine
On and on, an old time parade
This will be our day
I hear what you say

Oh the wind, he ran away
With the skies daughter, and all of her pain
Hold me when, you’re old and grey
This will be our day
I hear what you say

Oh the clouds, they’ll never stay
They’re crying buckets and got scared away
Look at the sun, look at your face
This will be our day
I hear what you say

Was it all only a dream
A little white house at the end of a stream
The tambourine and villagers scream
This will be our day
I hear what you say

This will be our day
This will be our day
This will be our day
I hear what you say
Track Name: Little Girl
Well I
I gotta little girl
I gotta little girl mmm hmm
And we are gonna shake the world
I gotta little girl mmm hmm

And she has gotta pretty face
She gotta pretty face
Well I
I gotta little girl mmm hmm

It’s been a long time since I had mine
That little lady knows how to fly
No no no baby don’t make me cry
You drive me crazy
Oh let’s roll tonight

Well you
Have gotta funny way
Gotta funny way mmm hmm
And I feel that way
You know I feel that way

I’ll I’ll never bee the same
I’ll never be the same mmm hmm
You are gonna change your name
You’re gonna change your name
It’s been a long time since I had mine
That little lady knows how to fly
No no no baby don’t make me cry
You drive me crazy
Oh let’s roll tonight
Track Name: Get Me Out Of Here
I’ve been runnin’ around like a chicken with it’s head cut off
I ain’t got no sense of time or direction
And there’s so many people on this earth
And I can’t seem to find myself a single connection

I don’t need money or love when it comes to push or shove
All I want’s a little salvation

I don’t read the news no more
All I need’s a traffic report
Get me outta here
Get me outta here

Here we go it’s the middle of the road
It’s the middle of the night and I’m tired
Well it’s too late for a heroes fate
So I might as well stop trying

All the time I hear you say
“Oh I’m gonna cease the day, maybe I’ll do it tomorrow”
And I have a friend who calls: "man I really love that girl"
She’s always drowning in her sorrow
Maybe I have got it wrong, some exaggeration
And I’m the one with the problem

I can’t believe the things I say
Oh I say them anyway
Get me outta here
Get me outta here

Here we go it’s the middle of the road
It’s the middle of the night and I’m tired
Well it’s too late for a heroes fate
So I might as well stop trying

Well it’s the hardest thing to believe in pretty much anything
Don’t take that away from, don’t take that away from me
And I’ve heard it all before, It’s hiding in my dresser drawer
Get me outta here
Get me outta here

Here we go it’s the middle of the road
It’s the middle of the night and I’m tired
Well it’s too late for a heroes fate
So I might as well stop trying
Track Name: So Funny I Forgot To Laugh
Gone away
Well I’m dressed in black
Gone away
And you’re not coming back
Heard you say “well really I must”
Bet you think you’re hilarious
Well you crack me up, yeah it’s just a gas
It’s so funny I forgot to laugh

Put me in some suitcase
Fold me up, I’m hiding away
Go and find some new punchline
Go and find some other guy

Well you crack me up, yeah it’s just a gas
It’s so funny I forgot to laugh

Saw you with a grin on your face
Laughing at your lucky break
Now I know the tricks up your sleeve
You guffaw diabolically

Well you crack me up, yeah it’s just a gas
It’s so funny I forgot to laugh
Track Name: Comfort Me
You got your hands full with all those things to cover me, cover me
And I keep my own good company, company
Diamonds and bibles won’t comfort me, comfort me
I’ll keep walking till you come for me, come for me

Through the rain and the radio I hear you calling me, calling me
I’m always in your good company, company
I keep your troubles till they come for me, come for me
You keep my worries till it comforts me, comforts me

I keep your troubles till they come for me, come for me
And you keep my worries till they come for me, come for me
Track Name: Broken Lullabye
Sometimes everybody needs a break when everything is broken
Oh don’t worry I’ll be fast asleep when everyone is gone
Sometimes everybody’s gone

Sometimes everybody wants to take, to take more than their given
Oh don’t worry I’ll be on my way, when everyone is gone

Sometimes everybody needs to stay when everything gets lonely
Oh don’t worry I will fade away when everybody’s gone
Track Name: Someday One Day
Somedays I couldn’t tell you my name
Got too much in my head to think straight
One day I’m gonna find you and say it all

Someday you’re only living for them
On the shoulder of Illinois
One day I’m gonna watch you, watch you fall

Someday you’re gonna show me your face
All the people and all the heartache
One day I’m gonna know what you’re looking for

Someday you’re gonna fix me up say
With some paper and with some Scotch tape
One day I’m gonna be what you’re waitin’ for

I only know the things I know
I only know the things I know
I don’t know the things I don’t know
I don’t know the things I don’t know
Track Name: Shit Or Get Off The Pot
This was a stupid idea
I’m going to bed early tonight

Now I’m running out of time
Running out of lines
Running out of places to be
I don’t feel fine
Gonna lose my mind
And I gotta lot of places to see
Track Name: Constant Motion/Bedtime Stories
’m going slowly
Sunshine delays
That’s such a nice thing
Put it that way

All I know
Constant motion
Set in stone
Until I am gone

100 Miles
It’s easy driving
Why won’t you take me
When you are smiling

All I know
Constant motion
Set in stone
Until I am gone

Go give me shelter
I’ll count the days
I wouldn’t be here
I got no place to stay

All I know
Constant motion
Set in stone
Until I am gone
Track Name: A Perfect Way To Spend A Saturday
You know where to find me
You know were I’ll be
A black and white movie
You’ve seen it but it still looks good to see
Hey Hey Hey Hey listen to me now
The days are getting longer But the years are flying south

And we talked in cliches
About the rain and sea
We are paper mache images of what we used to be
Hey Hey Hey Hey that’s the way it is
The days are getting shorter
But the years are yours to give

And you wake up a little bit older
You never thought it’d be so cruel
And you wake up a little bit slower
When you’re halfway there you got nothing to lose

Hey Hey Hey Hey look into my eyes
The days are getting longer now
Don’t let ‘em pass you by

And you wake up a little bit older
You never thought it’d be so cruel
And you wake up a little bit slower
When you’re halfway there you got nothing to lose

I could tell a story
About the golden moon
You had all your glory
You had it and it got the best of you
Hey Hey Hey Hey you’re living in the past The days are getting longer
But the years will never last

And you wake up a little bit older
You never thought it’d be so cruel
And you wake up a little bit slower
When you’re halfway there you got nothing to lose
Track Name: Any Other Way
One step ahead, two behind
You just can’t win
You always try to get it right
They never let you in

And all the tears
All the pain
All the smiles
All the gain
You wouldn’t have it any other way

Hearts that turn to stone
And you get goin
Pack up your things
Another try
Another chance
A left footed dance

And all the tears
All the pain
All the smiles
All the gain
I wouldn’t have it any other way

And you you get so tired
You get so tired
Just to stay awake
You roll the dice
You never like to play it safe

And all the tears
All the pain
All the smiles
All the gain
I wouldn’t have it any other way
Track Name: Mathew Brady/Decoration Day
An arrow and your tragic end
One hand behind you and one to defend
Six hundred million dead
One in your pocket and one on your neck

Industry and the cotton gin
Look out look out their gonna do you in
You shot a hundred thousand men
One hand behind and one to the lens

Go on go on and sit for hours
Still like a still life watercolor
November 1863
The lines cut through you like a masterpiece

A penny and an empty glass
One hand behind and one on a flask
And now you’ve settled on the years
I’ll decorate you with a flag and cheers
Track Name: Love's Gone
Love’s gone love’s gone
He tried so hard for you
But that’s all, that’s all
It comes and it leaves too
That’s just the way it is
Gentle as a summer rain
Harsh as the harshest winter

Last night I saw you
You told him
You said you would
It’s alright, It’s alright
It’s not for you to decide

That’s just the way it is
Gentle as a summer rain
Harsh as the harshest winter

Somewhere in the shadows
You’ll think of him
I know you will
It’s alright, It’s alright
Don’t burn your staircases

That’s just the way it is
Gentle as a summer rain
Harsh as the harshest winter

Love’s gone, Love’s gone
You tried so hard for it
But loves gone, love’s gone
Track Name: Goodnight
Go on to bed
Turn out the light
There’s so much left to write
I hear the birds and the sleep that you fight
Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight

Shake off the dust
Don’t it feel good
There’s so much left to do
One at a time
One day at a time
Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight

Roll up your sleeves
Jump right in
We’ll march on like a marching band
Hold on tight, Hold on tight
Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight

Share your love
Don’t throw away the key
Watching you watching me
I’ll keep you safe
Oh I’ll keep you safe
Goodnight Goodnight Goodnight
Track Name: Spinnin' To Infinity
Fraud and bribery
In the streets
Will knock you on your chin

Measure your luck
In a paper cup
Fill it to the brim

Oh I think too much
There’s too much to think of
I’ll take it as it comes

Mmm look around you
And all the people
Looking for someone

An eye for eye
Makes the world go blind An eye for eye
Makes the world go blind

When will it end
It’s never ending
Watch it in the sky

I’m so modern
Like some museum
Never gonna cry

Tear it all down
The walls around you
You couldn’t even see

Love and anger
They use to be friends
But now they hardly write

An eye for an eye
Makes the world go blind
An eye for an eye
Makes the world to blind

Well look you and look at me
We’re spinin’ to infinity
In a little town where everything it happening
Well look at me and look at you
I wonder why the skies still blue
You know that we’re just passing through

An eye for an eye
Makes the world go blind
An eye for an eye
Makes the world to blind
Track Name: Tomorrow Always Comes On Time
Holdin’ somebodies place
Tryin’ to keep pace
I dont’ show my broken bones

Wear your heart in a sling
But that don’t help anything
I won’t show my broken bones
I won’t show my broken bones

I‘m in love with a ghost
I never see her anymore
It’s quiet here without you now

All alone with yourself
Lying there on the couch
It’s quiet out here by the banks
But not as quiet as you think

When the sun turns out the light
Where does everybody hide
Tell me it will be alright
Tomorrow always comes on time

With your locks and your bolts
You couldn’t keep out all the gold
And you forgot about the holes

Someone else that you see
When you stand in front of me
I can see right through you now
I can see right through you now

There’s nothing left in this place
Trying to save face
There’s nothing left in this whole town

Kicking dirt with my shoes
I walk alone I walk with you
There’s nothing left in this whole town
Cause nothing left and nothing’s all around

When the sun turns out it’s light
Where does everybody hide
Tell me it will be alright
Tomorrow always comes on time

All alone on the floor
Try again try once more
Where did everybody go

Looking up at the stars
I walk alone and count the cars
Where did everybody go
Where did everybody go

When the sun turns out the light
Where does everybody hide
Tell me it will be alright
Tomorrow always comes on time
Track Name: 24
24 you got a lot of time to think it through
Chop it down and pick it up until it’s you

24 you’ve still got time before you’re 25
Chop it up and pick it out until it’s alive

24 I never thought you’d come to me so soon
Try a little tenderness once in a moon

24 you still have a lot a lot of things to do
Keep it up mmm keep it up until there’s few

24 you’ve got a lot of time to think it through
Chop it down and pick it up until it’s you

24 you still got time before you’re 25
Chop it up and pick it out until it’s alive

24 I never thought you’d come to me so soon
Track Name: Like A Happy Ending
Once upon a time like a nursery rhyme
I made you smile I made you fine
That only works in a nursery rhyme

Twice I sang a song like a lullaby
You fell for me in three quarter time
That only works in a lullaby

You know I’m gonna hold you when the war is done
You know I’m gonna hold you when
You know I’m gonna hold you when
You know I’m gonna hold you when the war is done

Get me there and get me back
Take me home and take me fast
Mmmm

Three o’clock you made me kind
I was so mean I was so blind
At three o’clock you made me kind

Fortunate for me like a happy ending point of view
In the middle
That only works in happy endings
Track Name: What Am I Going To Do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do

I knew a man who lost his job
His business went belly up
Built the whole thing with his sweat and blood
And I was there when you got the call
Your face turned white
I knew it all
Now the whole thing fell into the ground

What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do

And the lady street
Her husband left when she fell asleep
20 years the whole thing fell apart
And on every Christmas card
She sends them out
“The boys and I”
No one even has a clue

What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do

And on some days I’ve got enough
I’m never gonna lose touch
All I needs a little company
And other times I’ve got it rough
And all I want’s a little love
To make it through, We’ll make it through the night

What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
What am I going to do
Track Name: Jacqueline
Oh you wear the pain
Like a modest clean suit dress
On an ordinary day
Oh and papers say
“It’s gone to her head”
Don’t let ‘em get away

Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said
Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said

Oh Where did you go
You cried for a year
It’s not your fault
A legend
He’d rather be a man
Look what they’ve done
I see the handwriting

Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said
Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said

Majesty Majesty
I’m listening
I’m listening
Majesty Majesty
I’m listening
I’m listening

Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said
Jacqueline Jacqueline
Don’t listen to what they said
Track Name: Tomorrow's Never Wrong
Oh don’t hurry tomorrow won’t be long
Oh don’t worry tomorrow’s never wrong
Oh don’t hurry tomorrow won’t be long
Track Name: Youth & Beauty
Youth and beauty
You had it all
You’re heavenly
Now it wears you thin
It always did
You can never win

My thief she came to me in the form of a juggler
With every pedal and pick on metal I knew I’d love her
The ease of a cool breeze blew through her finger
When she put down one vessel and then picked up another

Speed and quality have an inverse relationship
You you got a way
You always did
You never pray

She was clean and a little bit green for such a talented girl
And I don’t think she’d yet appreciate a visit to the 3rd world
Loving her was like hitting the pool and wearing my Levis
And all the time I said you must be kidding this can’t be right

The heat was beating down upon your chest
I held my breath
Some far off land
You grabbed my face
In the back of a cab

Some might pop a bottle to deny their sorrow
Other pencil it in for infinite tomorrow
What you choose to do you lose out on something else
But in the end you’ll find you get over yourself
Track Name: More Than I Thought
I knew more than I thought I knew
More than I thought I could
On any other day

I grew more than I thought grew
More than I ever could
More than I stayed

And I dreamt more than I thought I dreamt
About the off hand compliment
About your lovely face

There’s so many people here
I don’t know what to say them
The girl of your dreams
Well you woke up right next to her

I sat counting the days and time
Hoping for a simple rhyme
Looking for a break

I had more than I thought I had
More than I’d ever ask
More than I’d take

It’s hard to believe in things like continuity and outer space
I know the sky is limitless but sometimes I feel that way

I loved more than I thought I loved
More than I could have shown
I should have any way

And I knew more than I thought I knew
More than I ever could
On any other day
Track Name: All My Life (Work In Progress)
Oh my life is just hanging by a string
Hanging by a string
Oh

Oh my days go back to where they start
A simple heart felt plea
I heard it all before
