about

This EP contains three new songs including one about sad Thai commercials (they are so sad but so good), conversations at Royal Tavern & the dirty snow & potholes on Lombard. The fourth song is an unreleased track from 2014 called "Miles & Minutes", which was an ill-advised attempt to write about a bookstore to the sound of "Young Folks" :P

*This is the tenth in a series of twelve EPs that I am releasing in 2014-15. Check out the SUBSCRIBE link up top for more info*

Track Name: What Kind Of Fool
Easier to hate than to forgive
Easier to forgive than to forget
Shipwrecked on the stones of 13th Street
Battered by the storm you don't expect

What kind of fool do they take you for
To fall for that again
What kind of fool do they take you for
The same fool you've always been

A lonely wolf that's staying up all night
Howling at every sad Thai commercial that he can find
"Forget Me Not" & "Dementia Dad"
Tears that feed a hunger he never knew he had

What kind of fool do they take you for
To fall for that again
What kind of fool do they take you for
The same fool you've always been

Love's the hand that rises from the dirt
A blood moon that descends over the earth
We can make it if we take it step by step
A silver bullet that puts the beast to rest
Track Name: Heaven Is A Place Called Heaven (Winter Version)
Meet me at the Royal around eleven
I don't like to drink but I love the sound of people
Laughter like piano keys that float above the hum of conversation

We talk of dreams that never reach fruition
And disappointment is a face that we keep hidden
They break like the applause when the waitress drops a glass on the wooden floors of the tavern

A full moon rises at the same time the sun sets in the west
People tell you how to live your life because they think they know what's best
They're not the ones taking all their chances
They're not the ones who are living with the consequences
When I tell you that I love you
I'm not just saying it so I can hear you answer

A button reads "Heaven Is A Place Called Heaven"
Heavy eyes, familiar signs we should be leaving
Let's get you home, I have to be up early
And I know you like to sleep in

With dreams of new beginnings
Track Name: Everyone Needs An Anchor
In the night you feel invincible
But morning dissolves all resolve
And the world becomes a mystery
Full of problems so impossible to solve
There are rooms you never open
When the door swings you cover your eyes
Will you spend your whole life worrying
For a landslide that never arrives

In a crowd you feel invisible
A shadow that never takes its form
Is anyone out there listening
To any other voice than their own
Do you think you're getting too close
Hopes that fall silent like the snow
When it melts all that's left is the dirt
From the fears we buried long ago

Everyone needs an anchor
Despair pulls you out like the tide
If you want I can be your answer
I can hold your hand until it's light
Track Name: Miles & Minutes
Around the corner from your place
You can always find the same mistakes
But there's always love that you can make
If you can keep your pretty head awake

Miles & minutes
Driving to your home
Crazy exes blowing up your phone
Tells you something that you've always known
Sometimes you're better off alone

Familiar pain & fitful starts
The current pulling on our arms
But if we can trace our scars
Maybe we can face our hearts

A look out the window to your favorite face
My books in your bed, I can hardly wait
I know a bookstore that's open late
All you have to do is turn the page
Sometimes you feel like you've got to fight for every piece of joy you find

"I can't believe the way that you lead me on, can't you see just how bad I need you"

Forgotten faces, fitful starts
Empty rooms & burning cars
Trace the tattoos on your arms
Maybe I can reach your heart

Familiar pain & fitful starts
The current pulling on our arms
But if we can trace our scars
Maybe we can face our hearts
Track Name: Heaven Is A Place Called Heaven
Meet me at the Royal around eleven
I don't like to drink but I love the sound of people
Laughter like piano keys that float above the hum of conversation

We talk of dreams that never reach fruition

A full moon rises at the same time the sun sets in the west
People tell you how to live your life because they think they know what's best
They're not the ones taking all their chances
They're not the ones who are living with the consequences

I'm not just saying it so I can hear you answer
