about

Spiritual Family Reunion Nashville, Tennessee

Rarely an artist emerges who is from some other realm entirely. A pure place where money, critic credibility, and customary fame seeking wouldn't survive. Writers like this don't come along often, are rarely understood but have a powerful presence. The music here comes from such a place and it will find its home.

Track Name: the light you save may be your own
There was a boy who covered his face
he couldn't bear to look at anyone in the human race
one day in the woods while walking his dog
he stumbled on a fountain and it was bubbling
this silvery song

the light you save may be your own
the light you save may be your own

There was a man who did everything he could
but his wife still hated him and one day
she decided to end his life for good
and then he woke up out in a cotton field
and the locusts were singing to him
singing this silvery song

the light you save may be your own
the light you save may be your own

So where ever you are
maybe stuck in some traffic
maybe high on a mountain ... on a train
or at the carnival
maybe you're in the capitol city
in Austria picking flowers
the sky might open up to you with this song

the light you save may be your own
the light you save may be your own
Track Name: Blackbirds of Arkansas
In heaven we ride horses on the beach
surrounded by seas of grieving iris
and the waves out off the cliffs of dover
where they've been trapped
for centuries

you're like a desperate flower
so blue in the morning
before the stars are thrown out
of the dawning
now nothing matters anymore
now that you're a blackbird
surrounded by so much light

all i care about is you. you you you you you

one night the kind of night
soft breeze was blowing on
there was a halo round the moon
underneath massive trees
the blackbirds of arkansas
took their heads and go to sleep

the time in the king kong chair
you lifted me up
and we laughed until we cried
leaning sidelong on the stair
sunglasses on
you told me you loved me so many times

all i care about is you. you you you you you

one night the kind of night
soft breeze was blowing on
there was a halo round the moon
underneath massive trees
the blackbirds of arkansas
tuck their heads and go to sleep
Track Name: Night of the Blackbirds
Birds know the galaxy is spinning uncontrolled
with the answers that we will never know
where's the beast? he's in the jungle
lying without mirrors in his
own twilight of green

Forming, falling, what it takes to see
you have no idea what is love... what is love?

Night of the blackbirds falling
night of the blackbirds calling
the birds know that you are alone
Conned by electric wiring,
reaching over glades of heaven
they finally reach their zone

Forming, falling, what it takes to see
you have no idea what is love... what is love?

Night of the blackbirds falling
night of the blackbirds calling
the birds know that you are alone
Track Name: Charming in a coma
My love the TV he's so kind to me
always talking what a friend
O TV without you I'd have no friends

Now Sylvester Stallone everyone called him dumb
though he wrote and oscar winning movie
some cheap starlet broke his heart
and he was never the same

Now a subway train sounds like a hundred trash cans
rolling down a steep hill
picking up speed by the Hudson river like some
friends of mine!
who think they're fooling me
with their half-assed attempts and lies
i can see that their souls are just like
trashcans

And my love my love he's the reason
I won't ever let anyone in
There is no one who could ever be pure
and good like him
but he doesn't have the strength to stand up
and get away, get away get away
but lord he's even charming in a coma

Yeah my love my love he's the reason
i won't ever let anyone in
there is no one who could ever be pure
and good like him
but he doesn't have the strength to stand up
and get away get away get away
but lord he's even charming in a coma
Track Name: Jerusalem
So i rode a dangerous bus southward to Egypt
i longed to see the moon hanging like some kind of blood over the sand
and we learned there's no such place as Golgotha
and no such sound as high-pitched mournful singing

O jerusalem
where the sky hangs like blood over the wailing wall
O jerusalem
where your love is like my love and all the angels call

Seeing your arms wave methodically just like angels wings
becoming afraid under the lights of Tel Aviv
we stood cut off by the Judean mountains
separated by goats and olive trees

O jerusalem
where the sky hangs like gold over the wailing wall
O jerusalem
where your love is like my love and all the angels fall

Where one's true love may hide another real love
Where one man's brother hides another man's brother
and your arms are like the wings of strange birds we've never seen
and your legs like the trunks of strange fruit trees

O jerusalem
where the sky hangs like gold over the wailing wall
O jerusalem
where your love is like my love and all the angels fall...

Track Name: King & Queen of Hollywood
i carry love in a little black bag for you
i bury my soul in a blanket for you
and this love goes with me whereever i go
poems drifting across the seine

o take your bags on the plane with you
deep down in them is a hidden picture
where once like farrah fawcett and john ritter
we were crowned king and queen of hollywood

my tender heart does not lie to you
o how many times have i turned down other lovers for you
i was with you in paris
poems float down from the eiffel tower

under the cold tower of london
you held my face with your trembling hands
darling no fear behind these prison walls!
i'll offer up my head for you

i carry love in a little black bag for you
i bury my soul in a blanket for you
and this love goes with me whereever i go!
poems float down from the eiffel tower

poems drifting from the eiffel tower
poems float down from the eiffel tower
Track Name: Will you sing?
Will you sing my song?
Will you sing my song?
will you make it resonate in every city
that you don't wanna be in?

Will you make it ring?
will you make it sing?
from every stage
that you wish you wouldn't be on

will you make it right?
will you make it high?
feeling all the joy
and no more suffering?

like our rings
in a circle dear
that never let go
that never lets go

will you be mine?
when you sing my song?
will i ever belong to you
when you sing my song?
Track Name: Thursdays and Mondays
thursday was the day
you always came around
friday was the day
you disappeared from town
the birds always know
when it's time to go
and monday was the day
i was set free

O free
O free
Monday was the day
i was set free

i remember the time two bluebirds
suddenly flew out and startled me
yes they were just like the deep blue colors of your eyes
and the good times that you gave me

O the blue and the flight
like a consolation of light
and like those two birds my soul
will fly back to mondays

in the silver court this world will not stand
the summer of river's wine
riting together the song of songs
O darling i am set free

O free
O free
Monday was the day i was set free
Track Name: Flowering tree
Out on the edge of the desert
there's a forest we cannot see
and this forest seems to draw water
from somewhere we can't believe
yesterday you were a coward
but today you're like a lion
when I think of lions I don't think of death
I'm thinking about survival

Out in the middle of the desert
lies a flowering tree
and this tree seems to draw water
from somewhere we cannot see
so miles and miles above the shelter of the heavens
lies the sands of what we believe
this isn't a song about the heavens again
it's a song about a flowering tree
