about

About a month ago (June 21st roughly) I sat down in my kitchen with an old 2 channel tape machine and recorded Down and Had. I had written the song just a couple days before, following the sudden loss of my younger brother in a car accident. A couple nights after that Macy K and I recorded We Can Get Out of Here and You're Not Alone with Daniel Kollars in his home up on Jacks Mountain. The final two songs, Grand Array and Other Lovers, were recorded with David Sheads in his home near Little Round Top. This album was recorded by me and my friends, free of charge, and so we're going to keep it that way.

Track Name: You're Not Alone
I was going down the road
Getting tired and feeling all alone
And you never came to mind
I must've had
The sun in my eyes

We rubbed shoulders through our friends
Never saw them as a means to an end
But when they fell out of our sight
That June night
Held such a bright light

We laid down under the moon
And I'll admit
That I made the first move
But you can't say you didn't try
I can't deny
Those beautiful sad eyes

I didn't have a clue
What happened
The night when I saw you
But when the time was right
I turned
And there in a new light
I saw your face
And the move your lips made
When I touched your hair
I felt the whole world stare
And in the moment it felt right
And it still does till this night
When we finally let go
We were home
No reason to roam
You're not alone
You're not alone

We watched the stars disappear
And wondered if
We both had the same fears
You had yours and I had mine
We let 'em go
And float away at the same time
Track Name: Grand Array
At home all alone
No tone to the phone
No one really knows me at all
Some time it may take
We all make mistakes
Its alright if you let them fall

If we run and we ride
We might make the grand array
It's all meant to be
If we work and never play
Don't say hurray
I've got more to do today

Come share the road
But don't run me over
There's enough for the both of us
It all comes around
If it goes around
Take your bow
While you've got the crowd

If we run and we ride
We might make the grand array
It's all meant to be
If we work and never play
Can't take a break
I've got more to do today
Track Name: Other Lovers
Marry me my May
I wont leave you in the dark
There's some other lovers
You should know
Have tried to play your part
Though they failed in vain
I pray the same
Won't ever come of you

Let's go back in time
And rewind to the start
It pains me to dig em up
From the bottom of my heart
But May my dear
What got us here
Is bound to see us through

Susan she was all so mean
And fighting all the time
I should of known
When I saw Sue hold
That gun up to my eye
That my fate was pain
I'd go insane
Or pray for a heart attack

With Jenny there was something
That always left me in a clouds
She promised me her love
But always played the girls around
When that bill went through
She went with Sue
And didn't bother coming back

Lonely is only a state of mind
Maybe I'll find mine this time

Sarah was always going out
She'd come home late at night
Hung over from another
Lover she'd done right
I'd lay alone for hours
Only me to ease myself

Amy on the other hand
Was never close enough
Push her off or hold her down
But she was just to tough
Eventually I had to leave
For the sake of my own health

Lonely is only a state of mind
Maybe I'll find mine this time

Mary me my May
I'll love you for awhile
But if you try to break my heart
I'll try to crack a smile
While I place you with the other
Lovers on the bottom shelf
Track Name: Down and Had
Don't leave me here
I'm afraid of myself
Don't leave me alone
Up on this shelf
With dusty old movies
And broken sunglasses
If I've got no use
Then scatter my ashes

I'm tired I'm worn
I was bored so I left New York
I'm young I'm sad
I've never been so alone and mad

Where did you go
I don't know the way
It's so dark in here
I'm lost out in space
My head is a nightmare
I've lost track of time
Will you be waiting
On down the line

I'm tired I'm worn
I was bored so I left New York
I'm young I'm sad
I've never been so down and had

You were right and I was wrong
I pushed my luck and now you're gone
Track Name: We Can Get Out of Here
Goodnight love
Goodnight love
Of mine

Lift your heart
Leave your mind
Behind

Fall in love
With the darkened
Sky

See the world
when you close
Your eyes

Go any place
you can escape
Tonight
Drift into space
I'll keep you safe
Tonight

We can get out of here
Find away to disappear
In time
We can go any place
We can escape
Tonight
