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.

Track Name: Smiles and Polaroids
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
Track Name: Juliette
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
Track Name: Nobody Knows
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
Track Name: Magic Here
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
Track Name: Pennies
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
Track Name: Corner and Stone
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
Track Name: Shoeshine Brothers
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
Track Name: Two Suns
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
Track Name: Moon
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
Track Name: Winding Roots
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
