Patiently 03:47
Now you see her, now you don’t She’s so fast and nonchalant Weary smile that I put up Doesn’t seem to make her stop You’re playing, playing It’s one, two, three I’m waiting, waiting Patiently Pull on up and hit the breaks Lively eyes behind those shades Nothing’s ever black and white Through the morning, through the night You’re playing, playing It’s one, two, three I’m waiting, waiting Patiently

Beautiful faces and beautiful lies I know I’ve had my share Tryin’ to keep my composure But sometimes the truth is hard to bear Looking outside the window The rain is falling down and all I see Are things that cannot be And all this time I’ve been here trying to let you go All this time passed me by And all this time I’ve been here trying to bury all my regrets In wine & cigarettes So many questions and so many answers Tearing down our walls Such a good play and magnificent actors But now the curtain falls Lookin’ through all the pictures I see your face but then it fades to black ‘Cause no one’s runnin’ back And all this time I’ve been here trying to let you go All this time passed me by And all this time I’ve been here trying to bury all my regrets In wine & cigarettes

Timeline 03:12
Graceful like a silhouette Heavy as a SuperJet Plunging like a waterfall Thought I’ve seen it all Cold as fire, hot as ice Easy like the asking price Hopeless as a writer’s block Round and round the clock Came the rise, then the fall I remember it all What you saw, what you got It was well worth a shot Don’t know how, but I see you now Through the timeline Flying high, hand in hand Over cloud nine Don’t know how, but I see you now Through the timeline Tumbling down through the cracks Of the fault line Put the picture in a frame No one needs to bear the blame Walking down a two-way street Can be bittersweet Many years down the road Different place and postal code Getting on and off the train Memories remain It’s a scent, it’s a taste It’s a letter misplaced It’s the year in review Or your last déjà vu Don’t know how, but I see you now Through the timeline Flying high, hand in hand Over cloud nine Don’t know how, but I see you now Through the timeline Tumbling down through the cracks Of the fault line

Call My Name 04:51
I’m a wanderer Who keeps ridin’ on I travel through the night ‘til the stars are all gone And when the sun’s up in the sky I get off the freeway I’m a wanderer But I’ll find home someday Until I do, I’m gonna head my own way I’ll drive from Portland until I reach Monterrey Might stop in Kansas, maybe Phoenix To me it’s all the same But I won’t rest, no I won’t rest ‘til you call my name ‘til you call my name All those lonely nights When I look at the stars Oh, and all the wasted days Spent in dark, smoky bars I seem to have lost track of time Just looking for a sign But I keep waiting, oh, I keep waiting At the end of the line And now the days grow short, but there’s no turning back Wish I could skip a beat from life’s lone soundtrack And if I can’t, oh well, to me it’s all the same There’ll be no rest No ‘til you call my name Listen I’m gonna go my own way I’ll drive from Portland until I reach Monterrey Might stop in Kansas, maybe Phoenix To me it’s all the same But I won’t rest, no I won’t rest ‘til you call my name ‘til you call my name

about

During the Covid-19 era, I felt the need to produce something laid back, largely acoustic and minimalistic. This is the end result.
