I got a whole world inside this suitcase Filled with smiles and polaroids I take it everywhere I go so I'll never feel alone Every road I’ve ever walked Every corner I have stalked Stay light when the shadows fall Cause all it takes is wind and sun to make this paper feel Smile for me one more time and Let me know its real Let me know its real Last night out on the balcony Oh how the echoes raged Like a chorus down at Carnegie Hall bouncing round a white stone cage Every voice I ever met Every sound I can’t forget Like chains to a circus parade Cause all it takes is wind and sun to make this paper feel Smile for me one more time and Let me know its real Let me know its real Old man daddy walker was my father’s name He had a heavy drink hand, turned out a pawn in his own game A captive now of time and wear I look for kindness everywhere My suitcase filled with photo prayers 2x Cause all it takes is wind and sun to make this paper feel Smile for me one more time and Let me know its real

Juliette 02:50
Your hand to mine is sparks to the spine So many now its got me half blind, thinkin Maybe its time that we let go Got mud in my chest and clouds in the brain I’m stuck in the spring, drinkin down rain Maybe its time that we let go Juliette wakes at the break of dawn She’s 80 years old and her husbands gone Juliette says child move along The wonderbread aint sposed to last this long So much of you for so many years The reddest of roses, bluest of tears Maybe its time that we let go This candy cane lovin spun me up tight it’s Got me twistin right outa sight Baby its time we let go Juliette wakes at the break of dawn She’s 80 years old and her husbands gone Juliette says child move along Juliette wakes at the break of dawn She’s 80 years old and her husbands gone Juliette says child move along The wonderbread aint sposed to last this long

Nobody Knows 03:17
Three months ago my three months turned upside down I was having a very nice time on my merry-go-round Nobody knows whats comin now Nobody knows whats comin now I’m moving inch by inch I’m watching daisy’s dry up Things don’t feel the same in my hands anymore Nobody knows whats comin now Nobody knows whats comin now Everyday is a new switch on a circuit breaker We’re fighting for change that wont break us Nobody knows whats comin now Nobody knows whats comin now Nobody knows whats comin Nobody nobody nobody nobody knows

Magic Here 03:20
Street dancing junkies, rosary queens All share a dusk on a quiet green Notes paint the air with a sundress flair Later that night, a boy and a girl Sandbox lovers in a grown up world Their ribcages filled with lightning storms In the cracks, in the walls, hiding in shadows Theres magic here Magic here Sore poet hands, red wandering feet jig and jive on a midnight street They unpacked their bags long ago Sky wont stop coughing It’s rained for days Blue is a dream, they know only grey But man that thunder smells nice In the cracks, in the walls, hiding in shadows Theres magic here Theres magic here In the cracks, in the walls, hiding in shadows Theres magic here Theres magic here Theres magic here Magic here

Pennies 03:16
Her napkin song is five trees long Her feet wanna run Maybe when she’s ready She’ll drop her pennies, drop her pennies She’ll drop her pennies, drop her pennies She’s got a skin colored cage And a job that pays She’s a plant seeking sun In a dark maze Tonight by the star light She drops her pennies, drops her pennies She drops her pennies, drops her pennies She holds a child in her deepest corners Still knows a smile when there’s nothing for her Hallelujah She dropped her pennies, dropped her pennies She dropped her her pennies, dropped her pennies, We drop our pennies, drop our pennies Until it all makes sense

I woke up to the sound of Rhode Island I went out just like yesterday Ears still searching for a bird that would sing Sweet Caroline over my way Oh I’m looking for home I’ve searched every corner and every stone But the rocks keep on shifting and I am just drifting All of these faces and all of these rooms Working hard on their grand debut And I try to clap loud to assure the whole crowd That my heart is in it too Oh I’m looking for home I’ve searched every corner and every stone But the rocks keep on shifting and I am just drifting Without a landing what type of wings would agree to fly I feel a bit nervous, a bit empty inside Cause it takes more than a moon, however old however bright To make a room feel warm at night 3x Oh I’m looking for home I’ve searched every corner and every stone But the rocks keep on shifting and I am just drifting

Brother and brother, hand in hand Tip-toed away to the willow lands Coconut trees swayed in the breeze Blue dragon eyes as big as the sky Blue dragon eyes as big as the sky Out on a string our kite went to sing A story of birds with golden wings Brother lets leave here, brother lets play We’ll fight the impossible just for today Fight the impossible just for today And I wont forget you We’re shoeshine brothers through and through Shoeshine brothers through and through Stumblin on stones I let the kite go And bloodied my knees right down to the bone Hitting the sand I cried at the pain You carried me home right through the rain Carried me home right through the rain And I wont forget you We’re shoeshine brothers through and through Shoeshine brothers through and through Shoeshine brothers through and through We’re shoeshine brothers through and through

Two Suns 04:32
Charlie’s down by the shore He couldn’t ask for much more There is sand between his toes He wished that everyone could know that sea-smell glee Ohh he’s one son On the other side of the bay David’s skipping rocks on a cold, cold day There’s a tear inside his town And it’s takin’ him down Ohh two sons Chorus But with this great divide There is a spark inside that burns the same Cause Charlie and David see the same world that’s in front of me Under different suns Charlie’s out on the swings Every push from dad gives him stronger wings David’s home alone He only sees the sky from a cracked window Ohh two sons Chorus But with this great divide There is a spark inside that burns the same Cause Charlie and David see the same world that’s in front of me Under different suns Bridge A child’s eyes are born so wide Every baby has ready hands But walls start to grow right up to the sky And dreams start to go on one of two sides While Dave lives in shadows and Charles takes the light Ohh two sons Ohh two suns

Moon 03:03
Theres nobody watching but the moon Sure is quiet in this here room Nobody watching, nobody watchin but the moon Really old man with a real young soul is Just trying to play his rock n’roll And nobodys watchin, nobodys watching but the moon The moooooon The moooooon Words come from dust they’re gone with the wind They’re faraway bombs whistlin And nobodys watchin, nobody’s watchin but the moon So he pulls out the plug, he turns off the mic Just so people hear him tonight And nobody’s watchin, nobody’s watchin but the moon The moooooon The moooooon 3x: I’m listenin I’m listenin I’m listenin

Off the square now Gravity pulls down Winding roots Crumbling of the shoots Patient pear tree Gives up all its leaves Hold your breath now So you feel it be

about

The stories on this album speak of the broken bones, street parades, bus rides, lonely lecture halls, rude awakenings, and magical moments that have made up my recent years. For more dirt, see the individual song pages.
