about

A B-sides album of sorts. This album was unplanned and recorded over the last 10 years or so. Most of these songs didn't really belong anywhere else and are huge downers. I don't currently have a way to record drums, but my next album (the album I'm actually working on) will have plenty of drums and happy go lucky stuff all the kids are crazy about these days. It seems a shame to spend dozens of hours recording songs and to never release them and this album is the result of that. Anyway, don't worry about me, I'm fine. So download away. It's free (unless you want to pay me!?!?) and there's a bonus track if you download the album.

Track Name: maybe you could save it for me
My birthday passed way back in May,
and I didn't blow out the candles all the way.
So if you have a wish that you don't need,
well maybe you could save it for me.
Track Name: hard for the grammar
I grew up kind of slow, I didn't know a lot of things.
It wasn't till I was 25 that I learned to look for rings.
You see once I knew this married girl, she had a
husband known to roam. Such a shame that she
could never take me home.

I learned to fall in love by watching television shows.
My myspace and my facebook taught me how to pick up hoes,
but when I'm in Korea I've got nothing I can say,
not that they would understand me anyway.

I've got a heart I could give you
but I confuse coulds and shoulds
so I will leave you alone now
and hide like a tree in the woods

So I work hard for the vocab, I work hard for the grammar
but when I try to speak it I can only raise a stammer
You see I met this tiny goddess; she's been running
through my head, but the one place she's not
running to's my bed

You gotta have the bullets before you get the blood
and if you need a man well then you've got to have the mud.
Oh what memories for mud to have, I've loved everything
I saw and I'll hate it when it's my time to withdraw.

I've got a heart I could give you
but I confuse coulds and shoulds
So I will leave you alone now
and hide like a tree in the woods,
hide like a cloud in the sky,
hide like a bee in the hive.
I will leave you alone now,
and hide like a tree in the woods
Track Name: coming up for air
Working my job 4 or 5 days in a week,
Sleeping alone and I don't count on sharing the sheets
with a hipster girl from a place right down the road.
I got a 357 and at half past 11, I'm coming up for air

and Jesus is running through the trees to save me.
I guess he got my SOS and he's bringing me my baby.
How, how do you want me to deal?
and how, how am I supposed to feel?
There's nothing left to take and there's no more heart to break
In the twilight and the blue, you said we'd see it through.
You said to me that we'd see it through.

The grass ain't green and my cancer's coming fast
The birds in my throat don't feel like their songs will last.
My ship is off course and the sail's are full of despair.
Go to be at 7:30 and at half past 11, I'm coming up for air.

and Jesus is jumping down the hill to save me.
I guess he got my SOS and he's bringing me my baby
How, how do you want me to deal?
and how, how am I supposed to feel?
There's nothing left to take and there's no more heart to break
In the twilight and the blue, you said we'd see it through.
You said to me that we'd see it through.

and Jesus is busting down the door to save me.
I guess he got my SOS and he's bringing me my baby.
Track Name: stomachs drop
Will I always be this shade of blue (2x)
These apparitions never stop and
I can feel my stomach drop every morning
that I wake up without you.
Will I always be this shade of blue?

I don't have to feel bad anymore (2x)
'cause in my dreams you're standing there
you're taking off your underwear
and suddenly it's like it was before,
and I don't have to feel bad anymore.

I don't have a single thing to miss (2x)
We're walking down a city block,
you're singing "crocodile rock,"
I hold you in my arms and then we kiss!
I don't have a single thing to miss

These apparitions never stop
and I can feel my stomach drop
every morning that I wake up without you
Will I always be this shade of blue?
These apparitions never stop
I wish that I was Robocop,
more machine and not so much a man.
Wish I had feelings that computers understand.
Track Name: mellow dirge
hello friend, once again the summer is over
and you are still sleeping in.
it's become what we are. You want what I have
but not mine and that's why it's hard.

and if I could explain it away in a song
it wouldn't mean anything, no no, not at all
oh can you see the sun? I can see the sun.
It sits on my window and it makes all the world glow
but not half as bright as you.

All the time we part ways, and that'd be alright
if my heart could see through the haze.
this is my mellow dirge and I will not cease it
until again we converge.


and if I could explain it away in a song
it wouldn't mean anything, no no, not at all
oh can you see the sun? I can see the sun.
It sits on my window and it makes all the world glow
but not half as bright as you.
I can see its light riding through the night.
It's drifting across the sky, colliding with clouds
and I never can explain.
Track Name: i will fix your windshield
I went looking out for love, but I found that love had passed.
Thought that it was supposed to carry you,
but it bit me in the ass.

Had a song upon my lips and a girl against my hips,
but that's not enough to last,
there's love to come and love to pass

So it's just another story of a love that fell apart,
and I will fix your windshield,
if you will fix my heart, but it's too late
Track Name: if my lungs should fail me now
If my lungs should fail me now,
then I wouldn't have to breathe no more
If my heart should fail me now,
then I wouldn't have to beat no more
If my mind should fail me now,
then I wouldn't have to think no more
If my soul should fail me now,
then it wouldn't have to sink no more
