A photon and a picture, go meet ‘em at the gate A megaphone to speak through and a clock running late Indecisive memory, what a way to show I might let it go to seed I might do anything you tell me to Creature comfort remedy, a miniature escape In Mexico where we did go, just you between the waves Follow down the hemisphere you might find the guilty one And I say, get the job done I might do anything, I might do anything you tell me to, and I want to
Well, I've been certain sometimes as the grass grows underneath Confounded by the night sky and all there is between People always say, how long must I wait Til my glass is full and brimming with a love that I can taste I’ve taken all the measures I’ve stood in all the lines Held out my worn-out ticket tall enough for the ride Little stroke of luck, well I’ve had that too But the closest that it brought me was to a dream-vision of you Is this the best show in town am I high on its praise could my heart bear the weight as the sun beats to the ground and the evening stars beg they beg to be seen, shining down shining down on the place this restless love has made there’s an island in the meadow there's a meadow without sides like an ocean bearing rowboats tending to the greater tide it’s hot under the sun, it’s cold under the moon it’s tricky how I got here to a blue world without you
hey hey hey valentine time to ease your worried mind hey hey hey valentine who has given all away, all away to me time is just 1, 2 and 3 every wave falls back to sea and every road that don’t taper and end and every echo across the span, and like an echo I hear it again tell me what is fortune, something to realize at the end of our lives just to find all the trials and the setbacks were designed like a folded piece of paper, sitting on a sill sail it out through the window, to be still hey hey hey valentine time to ease your worried mind hey hey hey valentine who has given all away, all away to be free


This is not an album. It's a collection of unreleased tracks that I plan to add to frequently. They may be lost-studio pearls, live shows, outtakes, in-house recordings, and other such goodies that haven't landed on an official release. For now, here are a couple alternate takes of tunes from Trick of the Eye. They were from my session in early 2011 at Jack Straw. Also, one unreleased track that didn't quite make it on that album.

more to come...


released January 1, 2012
