about

During my first tour, I played at a small coffee shop in Knoxville, TN with one 'Gandhi's Mustache'. Turns out, he was a curious and irreverently, gentle songwriter of a man named Elam Blackman.

We became fast friends and every now and then he will email me lyrics and I will try to put them to music.

lyrics

I'm pretty certain if I answer this call
It'll lead to nothing at all
She wants something I'm not giving away
By the dawn of a dimwit past
I see footsteps in the glass

There isn't much tread left
To keep walking this way
I feel like everyone kept on singin' when I was sighin'
People laughin' 'n carryin' on when I was dyin'

Hey, hey We're not alone

I'm way up, I've got a highrise view
Holdin' my breath, countin' t' two
Now, she shakes strong
But I ain't chasin' no tail
It's a delicate situation I've built here all along
Plastic cups and chicken bones

But it's mine
And only love can open the doors

So, I listened to only one tape over many miles
So, I turned the light way down low in my eyes
So, I tried and rose above the lines
So, it is never not sublime

Hey, hey We're not alone

There's a message on the phone
But I'm better here at home
And it's better to get it while you can

True, it's Friday night again
And the bars fill up with pretty men
And women drink for free
And smile like something's bland

When I work, I work for the dream
When I wind down, I take my leave

Hey, hey We're not alone
