about

I met Thurman in the summer of 2003 while we were both spending time in Granada, Spain, and we instantly appreciated each other's musicality. His faith in my songs was the seed that generated this collaboration, and the care he’s put into producing these recordings speaks for itself. Gracias, amigo.

My deepest appreciation goes out to my parents, Rose and Ed, and to the friends that have contributed help along the way, including Josh Weitzer, Josep Montañés, Bradley Bergey, Adam Linden, Robb Zucker and Andres Bartos. A special thank you goes to Maura, whose support and love have aided me incalculably.

Track Name: She Stepped Out on the Ledge
LYRICS

She stepped out on the ledge
She stepped out on the ledge
She had a moment of inspiration
But decided to go for it anyway
She decided to go for it anyway

A song came on the radio
Right as she took that fatal step
A song came on the the radio
As she was dropping through the air
And in that space she saw herself
In that space she saw a thousand years

She stepped out on the ledge
She stepped out on the ledge
She rose upon the rains
She rose upon the rains

A song came on the radio
Right as she took that fatal step
A song came on the the radio
As she was dropping through the air
And in that space she saw herself
In that space she saw a thousand years
Track Name: In the Black Space
LYRICS

In the black space behind her heart
Lie the ruins of a dream she once sought,
And now that dream is gone

She don’t whisper or sing a word about that
You just divined it from the way she acts
You’d better know, if you’re gonna try to go back there
you’d better be on your guard

(Bridge)
Well it’s not easy in the year 2009
To break through to the other side
Yeah, ‘cause everybody’s short on time
I’m telling you, they’ve gotta go

For all the means of communication we’ve invented
They’re incredibly easy times to be lonely, well
I can tell you a thousand stories, ten thousand stories ‘bout that

Repeat (Bridge)

In the black space behind her heart
Lie the ruins of a dream she once sought
And now that dream is gone
Track Name: Never Gonna Go Back Home
LYRICS

Grab your bags and turn the lights out
Get your boots on, that train ain’t waiting on you
Your little gold-digger ain’t gonna find you now,
Ain’t gonna find you now

Went and found a new life, cast aside your old strife
You’re never gonna go back home
Left behind your old friends, you’re looking through a new lens
You’re never gonna go back home

That engine rolls, you’re finally on your way
Conductor comes, you give him your ticket
Out the window now, the trees roll by,
You never feel so high

All the times you thought you knew yourself
You realized that you were someone else
And all those other lives you almost lead
They’re gonna be waiting on you

Went and found a new life, cast aside your old strife
You’re never gonna go back home

Another year goes by, another lifetime,
Another afternoon upon the rail lines
You can’t abide by noone’s law
Nobody’s laws but yours

Went and found a new life, cast aside your old strife
You’re never gonna go back home
Track Name: Long Way to Home and Back
LYRICS

You’ve got your new life in a new land
New friends, new thoughts, new feelings
New places to spend your little piece of the pie
But it’s your old life that fills your mind
Old friends, old thoughts, old feelings
Old places you spent the golden days of your life

Well it’s a long way to home and back
The ticket’s in my hand
I’m surely gonna go one way
but I don’t know if I’m coming back
No I don’t know if I’m coming back

Get your shoes on and take a walk
Have a look at all the world around you
It should be building you up,
But it’s been breaking you down
Somewhere out there, there’s a key
All you’ve got to do is look, you’ll it
Instead of locking things up
It’s gonna set them al free

Well it’s a long way to home and back…

You’ve got everything a simple man should need to fill his heart
Good love, a nice place to live. lots of other stuff that ain't even got no name

Well it’s a long way to peace untold
Been trying to find that train
I know that when I catch that ride
I’ll find the same life at the end of the line
I’ll find the same life at the end of the line

You’ve got your new life in a new land
New friends, new thoughts, new feelings
New places to spend your little piece of the pie
New places to walk and read a book in the park
New places to drink on a Saturday night
New places to make a little love on the beach
New places to dream about being a star
Track Name: Maura's Tune
LYRICS

Well, I don’t need to say you’re beautiful
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who looks
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
You can’t believe everything you read in books

You always complain I never wrote a song for you in really direct language
Well, here it goes, I hope you like it
You came and robbed me from the life I always saw myself living
Well, I ain’t complaining, I just want you to recognize what I’ve done
Just to be with you I picked up my whole life and moved across the water
It’s very fashionable to refer to it as a pond, but it’s really a big fuckin’ ocean

Well, I don’t need to say you’re cool as hell
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who talks to you
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
I’ve got a dozen different lives going on in my head all at once

It was never my intention to sit down and write a list of my favorite things about you,
but here’s just one… I never met anyone I could trust so much, I really trust you
You just might be the only person I’ve ever loved in my whole life
That didn’t disappoint me at least one time
‘Cause I saw it all from the start, and I took the good with the bad
And I don’t need to say you’re beautiful
That’s pretty goddamned obvious to anyone who looks
I just think you might need to be reminded sometimes
You can’t believe everything you read in books

Well, I might have some dreams sometimes
about the other lives I always saw myself living,
but I can’t help it, no, I can’t help it, I can’t, I can’t…
Track Name: Broken Glass
LYRICS

I’ve had this watch for fifteen long years
A silent victim of broken gears
I never dreamed it’d turn out this way
I saw my life through a broken glass

Through this wall, I will sing
And through this life, I will rise
In my own way

Liberation comes to the one
Who learns to love, not regret what’s done
So let yourself be carried away
Let tomorrow become today

Through this wall, I will sing
And through this life, I will rise
In my own way

And every day I’ll do what I feel
Every day I’ll feel what to do
Sing some songs, invest myself in you
And every day I’ll do what I know
Every day I’ll know what to do
Song some songs invest myself in you babe

I’ve had this watch for fifteen long years
Now a victim of broken gears
I never dreamed it’d turn out this way
I saw my life through a broken glass
Track Name: Turkish Interlude
LYRICS

In the garden light I saw it in your smile
You threw that dream out there
You’re never gonna see that dream again
In the station light I saw it in your eyes
It rose from deep within, a vision of your trials yet to come

That’s just a reason, but that ain’t no reason
Just a Turkish interlude, not life

In your youthful eyes of passion fresh like snow
I can see no lies, a place where no deception has been known
And in my modest book of ageing tragedy
A hidden page remains, never touched by blood, nor ink nor rain

That’s just a reason, but that ain’t no reason
Just a Turkish interlude, not life

In the garden light I saw it in your smile
You threw that dream out there
You’re never gonna see that dream again
Track Name: Shadows
LYRICS

Shadows gonna get you now
You’ve spent everything you’ve got this time
Got no bridges left, you’ve burned them all
Ain’t holding nothing back, I can see it deep inside
You’ve got no plan left in your head

It all happens in one day
You go from feeling like that to feeling like this, it’s wrong
It all happens in your mind
Everybody knows what it’s like to go from feeling like that to feeling like…
You’ve got to ride it when it’s here, yeah

Shadows gonna get you now…

Spend your life doing what they want
It’s time to break out on your own, start living in real time
You’ve got nothing left to give
It’s time to break out by yourself, stop living like a man child
You’ve got to ride it when it’s here

I guess it all comes down to feeling like a puppet on a string
I guess it all comes down to pulling off the veil of pride that traps you in

Shadows gonna get you now…
Track Name: Blissful Ignorance
LYRICS

Every time you call me up again
This old wall that I had to build up between us
Starts to crumble down again

I wanna hear those lies again
Float along in my blissful ignorance
Never knowing what is next

Well cancel the show tonight, here’s why
‘cause it’s time for us to say goodbye

Get yourself into some kind of new thing
Walk upon that razor’s edge of life
And take this with as many grains of salt you need
But always listen to yourself

Well cancel the show tonight, here’s why
‘cause it’s time for us to say goodbye
There’s no need to sing another song
‘cause you know the harmony is gone

Every time you call me up again
This old wall that I had to build up between us
Starts to crumble down again
Track Name: Stationary Life
LYRICS

You stand before that open doorway
That door could carry you away, carry you away
It’s not the first time that you’ve been here
But every time you turn away, turn your head away

Get your hat on and your sunglasses
If you wanna get a move on, you’ve just got to get it on
Stop telling yourself that it’s time to get out of this stationary life, stationary life

A voice from deep inside you calls out
It says it might not be the way, might not be the way
That subtle voice seems so familiar
The thousand lips that turn away, lips that turn away

Get your hat on and your sunglasses…

You stand before that open doorway
That door could carry you away, carry you away

Get your hat on and your sunglasses…
