Cold Feet

Liam Finn

your glowing face…

…like a stolen beam of the sun

From Liam Finn’s 2011 album, FOMO. Buy now on iTunes! http://bit.ly/zKkAGd While recording his sophomore album FOMO at his beach cottage in New Zealand in late 2010, Liam Finn found himself alone, missing friends, family and parties. His reliance on popular social networking sites and text messages to connect with loved ones inspired the tone and title of the record: the actions we take for Fear Of Missing Out. Seeking to record songs that would instantly grab the listener, Finn and co-producer Burke Reid looked for sonic triggers that wouldn’t just set a spark, but create an expansive listening experience that demonstrates a manic, off-the-cuff exuberance. Album standouts such as “Neurotic World,” “Cold Feet,” “The Struggle” and “Jump Your Bones” marry ’60s melodics with spiraling keyboards and distorted guitars and vocals.

 

Three Dog Night…

….Jeremiah was NOT a bullDOG
He Was a good friend of mine…
I never understood a single word he said
But we drank Vodka and mighty fine wine

Joy to the World…. staying warm on winter nights

Well, take me back down where cool water flows, yeah.
Let me remember things I love,
Stoppin’ at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin’ along the river road at night,
Barefoot girls dancin’ in the moonlight.

I can hear the bullfrog callin’ me.
Wonder if my rope’s still hangin’ to the tree.
Love to kick my feet ‘way down the shallow water.
Shoefly, dragonfly, get back t’your mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.
Welllllll!

Up at Cody’s camp I spent my days, oh,
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers.
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
Said, “You’re gonna find the world is smould’rin’.
And if you get lost come on home to Green River.”

Welllllll!
Come on home.

The Owl and the PussyFoot

I’m still an animal

I change shapes just to hide in this place
But I’m still, I’m still an animal

One Step Ahead

I tried to find my way back to you

but the path had mysteriously dissolved

There were things i wanted to tell you

many things i wanted to share with you

now they are left dangling like split ends

I stopped there for some time flatfooted

At the place where we left off

That space where we laughed without a care

Enjoying each other’s company

Feeling like every day was a holiday

And believing it would never end

Those days of fire

There was an air of sadness left behind

I smell something familiar but it was gone in a second

No amount of deep breathing could return that day

Only fragments remained

Sprinkled like fairy dust and scattered too sparsely to collect

It was gone and sadly reminding me was a song in the distance

A tune you once hummed while you were working

I loved to watch you as you carefully handled things

Joyfully and playfully I see our hearts

Skipping over the beat

Like teenagers fumbling with love

We shared many moments

which i had strung together like pearls

and methodically I rotate each one

to relive the precious feelings

I filled the spaces in between with plastic beads

many colours shapes and sizes

they were reminders that did not compare

nothing compares

your eyes sparkled with every smile you opened

every gentle touch was infused with love

the many chuckles in resistance

struggling to hold back laughter

confirming the snug fit we had found

within each other

the mischievous one and

the rebel without a cause

Where are you now?

I think of you so often

It’s because I’m looking inside

this open heartscape

How will I find you again?

I suspect you discovered your wings

And flew ahead of us

So I will keep moving forward

With loving hope and renewed faith

Believing you may be clearing the road ahead

For us stragglers

Always one step ahead and ready for anything

I love that about you

That’s what keeps me going

Pussyfoot hot on the trail….. Only one step behind

SPLIT ENZ – One Step Ahead

 

hold the course…

…Wherever You Are

Wherever you are
It’s 3 a.m. and I’m awake
Imagine the light
Upon your blue transparent face
Through coloured glass
It filters down to warmest red
Faded
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
You’re gracious and good
When all around is turning bad
Restless and brave
When laid upon suburban grass
Your timing is right
Remove the sad persistent thought
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll give you something, for when I’m not around,
To make you smile
And if you think it then it must be true
If only I could make it through
Climb into my bed,
Wherever you are
Wherever you are
Your timing is good,
Remove the sad persistent thought,
Hold the course
I’m the one who reads your mind
See my life in your design
True companion at your side
I’ll leave you something for when I’m not around,
To make you smile,
Outside that wasteland
And if only I could make it through
If you think it then it must be true
Ill be Wherever you are

Wherever you are
