about

First cut, side two. I only mention this because of the upcoming 12" Vinyl release. I'm excited, the last time my music appeared on vinyl was back in '84. This song started with the basic 'A' bounce and the music basically wrote itself. The lyrics (well, the first couple of verses) were part of a whirlwind story novel of sorts. Ten verses became two. And you'll never know just how much fun I had recording the riffs and guitar passages ...

lyrics

When you stare with the blues
I’m a little bit more than a bit confused
When I reach for a glass
I squeeze too hard and I cut my hand
So I fall to my knees
Pick up the pieces that are easy to see
Somehow, something still gets left behind…

If I think I might drown
I grab at straws when I’m going down
On the edge or the brink
I’m a lit cigarette in your kitchen sink
With the funk that I’m in
Put a hole in my heart with a safety pin
If there’s a heart with clothes out on the line…


It’s mine, mine, mine…mine, mine, mine
Mine, mine, mine…it’s mine, mine, mine

It’s only all mine…you know it’s all mine
It’s only all mine…mine, mine, mine


All the threats and abuse
I just shrug it off ‘til I’m ready to move
Find a soul, paint it black
Give your momma a heart attack
Call you up on the phone
And tell you all my sins until you’re deaf as stone
If just one voice sends shivers down your spine
