a collection of songs penned during the sierra/owens valley period. just beginning to regain the use of my emotional faculties and cataloging all those experiences. some good, some not so... but all together, a very good case study of the elasticity of the human spirit. produced by steven cooper. here's what's on the platter...
"pain loves company"... we all gravitate to that which makes us feel comfortable, to soothe the senses and emotions.
"big hair & tight levis"... socializing on the dance floor to some really good music.
"can i love you 'til you love me"... having patience with someone you know needs to be with you can often bring about some dramatic changes for the better.
"daddy said"... the wisdom and love from a father is worth more than any amount of gold or riches.
"f-y-i love you"... nothing like an inter-office, corporate love affair.
"i didn't say it that way"... my, my, how rumors get started... and spread around.
"ramblin' kind of girl"... an independent woman who has her sights set on another way of living, but that doesn't mean her loving has changed.
"let's work it out"... how the little ones get wedged in between our domestic egos and the sacrifices that should be made for them.
"stupid, that's for me"... when you finally realize you're an idiot and have been all along.
"lyin' next to me"... deception of the human heart. but forgiveness is not far off. lance miller tells us the story.
"mr. don't give a damn"... some pain and betrayals you just can't get over.
"turn me loose"... never know what you'll bump into at the grocery store, those chance, random meetings.
"my baby's eyes"... the most hardened heart can be changed by new life.
"the cheatin' kind"... no matter what you do or say, some folks just gotta have that extra ego attention and totally ignore true love.
"my tears still fall"... you know she treats you bad, but it hurts so good.
"nothing between us"... some relationships can't survive the past memories. they're stuck there and can't move on.
"she's a beautiful girl"... amazing what a little time and growing up can stimulate.
"why can't i love you if he won't"... it's a legitimate question, and one that deserves an answer.
"ain't no maybes about it"... how the party lifestyle can end a relationship.
"pickin' & a grinnin'"... couldn't pick a better role-model to go after if true happiness is what you want. ride the full 8 seconds.
