about

ARCHIVE is a seven song EP that was recorded with Paul Mahern in Bloomington, Indiana over the course of a few days in October 2019. We tried to stay true to the spirit of the loose and live home recording style I first used in my Iowa basement many years ago. This EP is free. A small musical thank you to anyone and everyone who has ever supported my long song journey. If you’d like to pay something for the music, all proceeds will be donated to United Action for Youth. A wonderful non-profit organization in my Iowa City hometown where I did some of my first recordings. Hope you enjoy the sounds, I had a ball recording them. Thank you! Gracias! Danke! Merci! 감사합니다

Track Name: All She Wanted
She went to New York on the bus
She’s gonna be real big, yeah not like all of us
She got an apartment right downtown
She got and agent who charges fifty bucks an hour

All she wanted was it all…

She went to Nashville on the bus
She’s gonna be a star, yeah not like all of us
She learned to sing some country songs
She’s gonna rule those hicks won’t take her very long

All she wanted was it all…

She met a man who played the dice
He loved his riverboats and giving free advice
She said he needed to go far
On out to California where the starlets are
So she went to LA on the train
The sun was shining there don’t think it ever rains
She’s been there 27 years
She’s finally happy now and no one knows her name
All she wanted was it all…
All she wanted was it all…
Track Name: Hide Away Now
When you see me
Will you go?
So sad
Go now
So sad
Go now
Go now
Will you wonder?
Will you cry?
Will you look me in the eye?
Could I want you?
Where will you go now?
Go now
Go now
Go now
Don’t hide away
I don’t want to hold you down
Go now
Go now
Go now
Track Name: Sister Burn
Little sister likes the picture near the stairs
Little sister takes the scissors to her hair
Sissie never sleeps but always walks out in a dream
Sissie never speaks until her lips are just so cracked they scream

Falling down in alleyways, out of sight
Burning in the sunlight, freezing every night
Is it always what you see and what you get?
Rolling out of bed this morning I forget

Little sister found a bottle and a spoon
Little sister is finally happy in her room
Sissie walks the broken glass of days that never end
Sissie waits to ride again with all her brand new floating friends

Falling down in alleyways, out of sight
Burning in the sunlight, freezing every night
Is it always what you see and what you get?
Rolling out of bed this morning I forget

Little sister likes the picture near the stairs
Little sister takes the scissors to her hair
Sissie never sleeps but always walks out in a dream
Sissie never speaks until her lips are just so cracked they scream
Track Name: Witness
Can I get a witness to unholy goings on?
Sunday mornings early warning
Church bells all undone
And I’ll try not to disappoint you
With my prattle call
Wake up in the early hours
Phone ripped off the wall

I want to see the sunlight in your hair
Take me there tonight…tonight

And I don’t think you understand
What’s really coming down
When you think you’re dreaming
That’s when you just hit the ground
And I don’t ever want to see you
Crawl up to my door
If you need a place to hide
Don’t come ‘round here no more

I want to see the sunlight in your hair
Take me there tonight…tonight
To not appoint you
Can’t anoint you
Disappoint the one I needed
Track Name: I Need You
I need you
You’re like the coming home for good
I need you
Thought by now it was understood

I need you
You’re like the laughter from the schoolyard
I need you
Does it have to be so hard?

Sometimes you look at me
Like I’m a ragged tambourine.
That’s passed around and beaten to a scream
And it’s OK we all get down
You know that I’ll be your clown
Make you laugh, make you feel the sounds

And I think we’re gonna make it
Heaven knows if there’s the slightest chance, we got to take it
‘Cause this don’t happen every day
The terror of three words that we can’t say
Won’t make it go away

I need you
You’re like the coming home for good
I need you
Thought by now it was understood
Track Name: Alone
When you’re walking on the street
Who did you expect to meet?
And are you going anywhere?
Do you think we really care?

And are you alone? You never look at home to me
And are you alone? You’re gonna find a way to be

When you’re driving in your car
Are you going very far?
Around the block and back again
When you begin you see the end

And are you alone? You never look at home to me
And are you alone? You’re gonna find a way to be
A way to be..

When you’re watching the TV
You go to places you won’t see
They’re so happy on the screen
In a way you’ll never be

And are you alone? You never look at home to me
And are you alone? You’re gonna find a way to be
A way to be
A way to be
Track Name: Only Love
She never knew
A quiet seed
That never grew

She never knew
You were lost
Broke in two (Broken too)

Lonely love
Lonely love

She falls away
A hazy dream
That never stays

She’s a memory
Drifting on
A Western breeze

Only love
Only love
It’s only love

Love’s never wrong
Speak your heart
Play your cards

Go fall in love
Take your heart
Fall apart

Its only love
Only love
It’s only love

She’ll never know
A quiet seed
That never grows
