Freeway Sign

have you ever been really really far away
from your lover for a really really long time?

I know you’re lonely
I’m waiting here for you
Baby, nothing changes
When you feel like I do

So now you’re far away
You got a job to do
So, baby don’t get desperate
Don’t be blue

I see that exit sign
The one you take tonight
The one you take to know you’re home

So many freeway signs
An exit for every life
Remember there’s one can take you home

Other people
They don’t have a clue
They drive on by
Like they do

I see that exit sign
The one you take tonight
The one you take to know you’re home

So many freeway signs
An exit for every life
Remember there’s one can take you home

Where’s the love in a freeway sign
That’s got nothing to do with your life?

Goodbye Monday Blue

written and recorded in a 72 hour flurry.
have you ever had to re-write a memory?

No one told me about what happened
To you for a couple of years
Had to rewrite all the good times
Had to rewire ½ the gears

Goodbye Monday Blue
Goodbye I did love you
You had nothing left to lose
Save goodbye monday blue

It takes all your will
To draw with your eyes closed
And it takes all the energy
To recreate this world

Goodbye Monday Blue
Goodbye I did love you
You had nothing left to lose
Save goodbye monday blue

Get Like That


mmm. mmm. mmm.

I don’t ever want to get like that
How’d you ever come to get like that?
I swore I’d never want to get like that again

Kicked out of the house and shown the door
Forgotten twice by the side of the road
2 nights coatless
in the bitterbitter cold

I don’t ever want to get like that
How’d you ever come to get like that?

Nothing But Love

up then down then down then

I had it all then I had nothing
just like Job traded to hell from heaven

Wouldn’t you know it I was done in
by just one careless hand
Simply screwed up one little thing
got handed my hat

And now I got nothing but love
to get us out of here
I got nothing but love
so there’s nothing to fear

After a few lost jobs I had a few lost evenings
I felt betrayed by some pretty good feelings

Fortune just kept turning the corner
She kept turning away her head
She kept turning me into a shadow
under that empty hat

So now I got nothing but love
to get us out of here
I got nothing but love
so there’s nothing to fear

There is nothing to fear
We have nothing to fear
There is nothing to fear
When there’s nothing left but love

When there’s nothing left
Nothing but love
I’ve got nothing left to give but love

There is nothing to fear (when there’s nothing but love)

Invisible Girl


Written in 2002. Finally recorded correctly in the key of B.

I know you’re in my mind
I hear you if I sleep
Lying awake in the dark I feel you deep

Invisible girl – don’t get lost in your
background

I’m gonna dream ‘til I know you’re mine
I’m gonna dream ‘til I run out of time
I’m gonna dream unfinished songs
I’m gonna dream on and on and on

I know you’re in the room
Your body rise and fall
Interrupting all the light dancing on the other wall

Invisible girl – don’t fade into the
background

I’m gonna dream ‘til I know you’re mine
I’m gonna dream ‘til I run out of time
I’m gonna dream unfinished songs
I’m gonna dream on and on and on

Words Of Release


New track for a new year. The dove and the hawk are clawing at each other again.

Hey
I need you to bail me out again
I don’t know that I can
I’ve got artifacts from a war I need to give to a widow

Hey
You said you’d be waiting home for me
Now I don’t know where you are
And I can’t tell the distance from the echoes

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she hears these words
They will be her release

You
Brace for the future you don’t know
Long ago you told your friends you’d never change

I
Carry these remains
Rushing forward on a train
I can’t say that they’ll ever reach their destination

Now
I’m leaving once again
Papers have been sent
Time has been spent

(I’ve got) Words of love
(I’ve got) Words of peace
And when she reads these words
They will be her release
