about

This EP is the product of many hands, many cups of tea, and many hours in an improvised bedroom/bathroom studio. It would have been an impossible feat without the kindness and talents of Jimmy Brannen, Graham Stone, Stella Green Sanderson, Kelly Lefaive, Beth Harris, Chris Blachford, Mike Dickson, and all "The Chums" who have lent their support. Someday we'll find a way of paying you back. Until then, infinite thank-yous and supersized hugs to all of you.

Track Name: Barstools
You're awfully wild tonight
Drinking like hell will rise
Devil's before your eyes
He keeps on calling you back

And he looks like the bartender
Who knows you down to the letter
Stitched to your tongue and ever
Thirsting for more

To the barstools and neon signs
The patron who always smiles
Though he never will tell you why
All the better for that
To the gin sitting in his glass
And the sputtering way he laughs
When he puts down his drink to ask
Who will come share his bed

She's awfully kind tonight
Knows that this soul of mine
Needs just a little shine
And a break from the black
She's talking with younger men
And I can't compare to them
But right now I need a friend
Or a little bit more

To the barstools and neon signs
The waitress who always smiles
Though she never will tell me why
All the better for that
To the gin sitting in this glass
And the sad little way she laughs
When I put down this drink to ask
If she'll come share my bed

You're awfully wild tonight
Make your way home, get your head back on right
I need just a little shine
I'm a good man, not like these other guys
You're awfully wild
And I'm just a child
I need some shine
Darling, won't you be mine for the night?

To the barstools and neon signs
Track Name: Little Fires
Blushing, all lit up with tiny little fires
Under my skin
Staring sideways at everything you do
Wishing I could collapse into you

You're hot to the touch, or I'd imagine as such
I've yet to find out
But I'll take these hands and on my command
I'll see what this spark is all about

Just lay me down
Stay for the night
We can wander around
In body and mind

Linger here longer I'll take it all in
And lean on your words
Losing my sleep and holding my tongue
Should I be reckless and young?

I'm dizzy and dangerously close to just pulling you
Close to me
I've reached out my hands at the sight of your smile
Bursting so brilliantly

Darling, I want you it's plain and it's clear
I swear I'll play nice if you come over here
Darling, I want you it's plain and it's clear
I swear I'll play nice, so come over here and just

Lay me down
Stay for the night
We can wander around
In body and mind
Just lay me down
Stay for the night
All these flames and these fires
Embodying mine
Track Name: Woods and the Wastes
I've got a trace of the woods and the wastes on my skin
I felt the roots in the soil when I dug my hands in
I cannot wash it off
The land has made its mark

The shadows were liars and I couldn't help but believe
Tallest of tales as they stretched out the branches of trees
To claw at the skies
Cover up the moon
Play tricks on my eyes
Lord let me find my way soon

Oh and I heard them
Those natural demons
Trying to take me for a fool
Evil intentions
Howling misdirections
Oh, the forest can be cruel

I've got a trace of the woods and the wastes on my skin
I looked to the land days on end till I found my way in
I clung to the earth
Laid among the fields
Made claim to the dirt

Take these unworthy hands
Pressed to the heart of the land
I'm no fool these woods live in my skin
Take these unworthy hands
Pressed to the heart of the land
I'm no fool these woods live in my skin
Marked by the wastes I will sow myself in
