Bussing It 04:45
when it was my turn to depend on the bus line bags spilling out my arms at the mercy of any strangers’ pity struggling to map the city it’s not like medical conditions laden with complications made obvious by walkers and pokemon t-shirts i’m relying less on comfort. am i moving up a ladder? is independence good or bad? we’re all bussing it we’re all swimming upstream it’s a brutal awakening that we are all the same i only have a dollar with my arm stretched out the window i wish it was more but i saved it just for you i know it's not a super power, but neither is invisibility ‘cause who could live like that maybe it’s all a dream and we wake up in the woods & we’re holding hands in a ring of flowers, shoulder to shoulder, & we start to dance your crown could blind me we’re all bussing it swimming upstream it's brutal awakening we are all the same [a song about riding the bus in Denver, CO]

Banquet 03:50
i take your hand and you take mine we asked for roof, food, sleepy headed children handmaidens shout their hymn gathering together, sending us with song now pronouncing, on this side of history forever hold my peace hidden in soil and buried under years of sorrow, it was always you (it was always you) it was always you (it was always you) words are misremembered but music jogs my memory the flight of time could never strip them of any power glory be the earth has turned, it will turn again i’ll stay awake till then (it was always you) i’ll stay awake till then (it was always you) i'll stay awake i'll stay awake [Written for Hannah and Adam, on their wedding day]

100% of You 05:52
i wear my boots, he wears his beard no barricades today we’re not even halfway, we’re all the way baby detach myself, unite to him, step in step in step in rhythm you invite me to tea, it’s what girls do we catch up, there’s unexpected news aching tears, and honest fear urgent dawning that you could never be me, and i could never be you in bed is my heavy chest thin dread or a veiled hand i’ll make it if you come, if you stay with me, if you talk to me we're not halfway, baby we’re all the way we're not halfway, baby we’re all the way could tension ever comfort us? nowhere near and could it already be? are we climbing a mountain while we float at sea? 100% of you 100% of me in bed is my heavy chest thin dread or a veiled hand i’ll make it if you come, if you stay with me, if you talk to me we're not halfway, baby we’re all the way we're not halfway, baby we’re all the way [A song about fully embracing paradoxes and tensions]

Boxer 05:10
light weight champion for two glorious weeks two weeks quietly slips into 30 years when you’re out of fight the world has turned its eye away i’m running my feet pound the dirt on the trail this is the part in my own feel good movie when scene cuts to scene cuts to scene the hardest part is doing it all over again the hardest part is doing it every small victory is cause to celebrate beating your body, your home, your fears kids train to fight the world has turned its eye away i’m running my feet pound the dirt on the trail this is the part in my own feel good movie when scene cuts to scene cuts to scene the hardest part is doing it all over again the hardest part is doing it [a song about boxers and my neighbor, Charlie Brown, in Brewerytown, Philadelphia]

Move 04:10
when i was a child in a ever expanding world everything was the biggest I’d ever seen no distractions & if you cut me i could shine nowhere to be, and to move my legs real good each day a universe, scale the walls sitting stiffly, gears are grinding in a shrinking world heart is racing, head is dizzy, no not now i am tempted to never move my feet again or to move my legs at all, to try and scale the walls, and look over light in my skin imagine fairy tales can fix disease of forgetfulness i move my legs and leave the room nothing more to prove [Partially inspired by the Billy Collins poem On Turning Ten.]

about

These songs moved from Philadelphia to Denver as little nuggets and wriggled their way into existence in my home studio in Colorado.
Enjoy!
