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

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

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
4.
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

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…

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
7.
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

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…

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
10.
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…

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.
