Love Is In My Tears When I am lost I know I’ve been ok After many trials and darkened days I know smoke clears when the winds do blow I’m sure that life will find me where ever I may go (Chorus) Not ready to stop dreaming Love is in my tears Not ready to give up on loving Love carries me through the fears When the sun sets and the coolness flows I feel my desire to finish the day tomorrow will come without the past it goes always takes me in a new kind of way (Chorus) I know smoke clears when the winds do blow I’m sure that life will find me where ever I may go (Chorus)

Love Isn’t Always Just For Fools When I feel I can’t take anymore and my spirit’s hanging by the door I hold on a sweet dream knowing someday it will be I know love always finds a way Songs will cheer me while I wait This love of mine will answer the mystery Somedays I’m barely hanging on somedays feel a million times as long I know there’s good days but I say she’s real Someday she’ll know how I really feel (Chorus) Love isn’t always just for fools you know? I may be a dreamer but I’m schooled you know? I know I know I know I know Somewhere out there the days go by for a little girl not in my eye she’s stranded in a whirlwind of days that pass alone I think someday when our days have kissed we’ll think back to these days we missed without one another in a life so unknown Somedays I’m barely hanging on somedays feel a million times as long I know there’s good days but I say she’s real Someday she’ll know how I really feel (Chorus)

Hearts Of Gold All the places I’ve been to All the faces I’ve been through Nothing brings back memories more than staring in your eyes The songs we’ve left unsung the bells we’ve left un-rung The journeys we still have to take the first step on. (Chorus) I’m glad you’re my soul mate together we resonate Make magic without effort and share our dreams with all the world Goodbye to the quiet sky when we play for the tearing eye of these strangers turned friends who listen with hearts of gold. It’s hard to be unknown With all the places we have flown looking back connecting lights in a dim and shadowed land If you remain my confidant I’ll be your debutante from New Orleans to Vermont L.A to Newfoundland. (Chorus) And I know it’s lots to ask To be in someone’s world All I know is in the dream I was the clown and you were the girl. (Chorus)

The Fountains Of Doon The lifesaving fog is rolling in the hills of the Doon The fires are hiding and the wood pigeons hooting a tune Another day bought for disasters diverted The flames will not flicker in the aftermath deserted Give me another day of peace in my home in The Doon (Chorus) The night is everlasting and cooled with the starlight The days are dry with the blue sky and sunlight There’s nowhere I know but the top of this mountain Where lies the elixir I drink from the fountains of Doon. What can I say to the turn of the seasons? Where can we go but be in touch with these feelings? Be in tune with the moon and the days flying by us the winds where they’re blowing and the redwoods beside us and the creatures who mind their own business so we can find meaning. (Chorus) Only disaster will ever make me leave here the gifts of her love and the birdsongs I do hear It’s a long road to travel but I’ve done it so long now There’s nowhere to go but back to my snowplow far from the Doon.

Dafodil Hill 05:20
Daffodil Hill If you’re aware of what time takes away What do you want to look back at and say? Can a broken heart unlock this door? Do the happy people answer anymore? This is the only someplace left in town Only place you can count on when you’re down. I live on the side of the Daffodil Hill and I roll on down when I’ve had my fill. I’m kind of done when it comes to time Lost a couple years but it’s no crime Wait for winter in summer’s early dawn Burnt myself on what the sun was shining on. (Chorus) They who all run together just like water down a drain If I stay near the edge I’ll be a ghost where there was no rain Wait until Daffodil Hill’s got me in the sun again Can’t say nothing ’til I put music to my pain Can’t say nothing ’til I put music to my pain. If you’re aware of some winter getaway Where flowers don’t grow and the cold it stays Let me off somewhere I will remain Chances I’ll have something to explain I’m kind of done when it comes to time Lost a couple years but it’s no crime Wait for winter in summer’s early dawn Burnt myself on what the sun was shining on. (Chorus)

It Ain’t Easy (Chasing The Dream Away) It’s an uphill climb on a level playing field You gotta be kind and you gotta be real Wined and dined and strung out on rhymes and there’s no guarantees it ain’t easy You can write a new rule book out there on your own and still not even know if your chances have been blown if you’re spending your time so you can be shown that there’s no guarantees it ain’t easy (Chorus) You can change a chord but who says it’s better? If it makes more sense the less it matters They want more of your money because they’ve found a way Should you keep chasing that dream? You’re just chasing that dream away. It’s just another song in a world full of blues Anyone else tries to one-up on you. You hang on for the smiles that are far between and few and there’s no guarantees it ain’t easy. Out there in the vast unknown You wonder sometimes if your light found a home If you made somebody’s day but you feel so all alone There’s no guarantees it ain’t easy (Chorus) You were brought up by classic radio When Jim Croce had his own light show But records were heavy so they lightened the load and there’s no guarantees it ain’t easy. The loner in the corner no longer makes it big Now it’s homecoming queens and the quarterback kids Now it’s Ivy-League legends with their Ukulele bids and there’s no guarantees it ain’t easy. (Chorus)

Lost Here 03:13
Lost Here The king of the castle is fast asleep Every single liar has been believed All the midnight killers are out in the clear Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Oh the sweet temptation will never grow old To spend all the money that can buy back your soul. To watch the shades of tomorrow disappear Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Cinderella she places her sight on the hands of the clock juggling time She could only dream to remain right here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here. Nobody told me that I would be lost here.

Walking The Floor That season is over now the season of shedding tears in snow I’ve fallen into patterns and I feel I will never go on I’ve been walking along the floor here half the night or more Nothing left to lose or do just playing my personal war Playing my personal war. (Chorus) You may be losing your mind but not as quickly as I You may be losing your mind because there’s nothing left to find and nothing left to hide Like I. The votes were counted too fast your friends said I was a loser and you soon retraced your tracks realized how young you were So I’ve been walking along the floor here It crossed my mind like a foot on a bridge What the hell is wrong with me? Is there no one I can be with?

Old Roots 04:09
Old Roots There’s a darkness in the sky When the docks no longer show and there ain’t no tears that’ll ever be seen where the river man does come and go and I see goodbyes everywhere in the sadness in the wind Watching the life rolling on and seeing the roots start digging in (Chorus) Old roots dig deeper when you can’t move on and the rain sends the roots growing down so deep Seems there’s a sun shining on the tree of life and the miner of the roots never sleeps Can’t you find another path? When the old goodbyes have come and gone? Well there ain’t no way I’m looking back Unless there’s new ground that I’m standing on. I’m showing no fear to the outside as I watch things falling down. The rain, the sky, your love, your life I can see the twists of fate coming around. And I don’t wait for wintertime to wear my coat up to my chin There’s no need me being lonesome in this old box that I’m stranded in. (Chorus)

The Land Of The Free I’m psychosomatically dying My patients rotting to the core My lungs are heavy and rocky I can’t sleep flat anymore If you want to be clairvoyant these days you just have to predict the worst It’s now or never more than ever and if you’re not doomed you’re cursed When misfortune costs a fortune in the land of the free This country rich in homelessness feels like no friend to me. I’m stranded cold and lonesome even with somebody around. Can figure out where this is all taking me Is this just trouble bound? When the curse is cracked wide open Will there be a million shining suns?
If no one has guns No one needs guns. Wake me up when this is over. They’re all playing it wrong and strong. There’s some stupidity in the room now and we should have known it all along. Why don’t you just go back where you came from? I think I might just do that. Where I can freeze my ass in peace. Hell I might even buy a cat. Put some killer band together where everybody plays to survive. We can take turns playing all the instruments and be happy to be alive. Even if only a few come to hear us because the fame scene is all rigged. There’ll be magic under the radar everywhere we’ve gigged. Yeah, yeah.

about

During the virus lockdown, my friend Anders Andreassen from Denmark offered to have me send him the raw files of a song so he could mix the recording. It turned into a whole album I'm excited to present to you.
