about

On a fateful spring day, past the gates of Amsterdam, a caravan gathered to cross the river in the pursuit of putting some songs to tape for posterity and sentimental reasons. Spread across the floor with a few microphones in between the red light came on and well, sometimes you just gotta listen to the band play it soulful...

Track Name: It Ain't Why, It Just Is
Well, Tori came up the block
With her portable stereo.
We’d sit upon the driveway
And listen to Brother Jack blow.

She said, “turn it up.”
She said, “soak it in.
Let it ride you on down, child
When the walls they cave in.”

You know it used to be so simple
When you dig just what you dig.
Nobody asks you questions,
It ain’t why, it just is.

We’d take that train
Up to Asbury Park.
“Bring your camera along, girl.
And a flash for when it gets dark.”

We would talk inspiration,
The kind that comes from the unkown.
“Have you ever transcended,
When you’re strung out on the floor?”

You know it used to be so simple
When you dig just what you dig.
Nobody asks you questions,
It ain’t why, it just is.

We’ll go walking down by the river.
I will tell you all my dreams and my fears.
Have you ever felt so alone,
Since we came around here?

Well, Tori came from the block
With her portable stereo.
We would sit upon that driveway
And listen to Ray Charles’ “I Believe To My Soul.”

Well, I wanna tell her, “turn it up.”
And she would tell me, “soak it in.
She said, “let it ride you on down
When the walls they cave in.”

You know it used to be so simple
When you dig just what you dig.
Nobody asks you questions,
It ain’t why, it just is.
Track Name: Steal Your Soul (That's What She'll Do)
When you’re out there on the road
And you don’t got nowhere to go
You’re tonge tied, you got nothing to say

You’re lost in your thoughts
And you can’t keep on keeping on
She will come running to you.

And your backs against the wall
And you don’t got no one to call
She’ll steal your soul, that’s what she’ll do.

In the summerhouse of a lady
Who ran madly for love
You will get stranded in a dream.

At the heart of a mountain
Where the devils dance in the air
You know she will always be standing there.

And your backs against the wall
And you don’t got no one to call
She’ll steal your soul, that’s what she’ll do.

And you never needed someone
More than you need her love
Does the levee seem to be broken?
Has everything come undone?

And your backs against the wall
And you don’t got no one to call
She’ll steal your soul, that’s what she’ll do.

When you’re talking to yourself
Through all the nervousness of hell
She’ll help you will your selfishness and jealousy

But you can’t run and you can’t hide
There’s nowhere else to get by
Because she will be waiting for you

And your backs against the wall
And you don’t got no one to call
She’ll steal your soul, that’s what she’ll do.

And your backs against the wall
And you don’t got no one to call
She’ll steal your soul, that’s what she’ll do.
Track Name: Deep In Your Heart
When I need a little lovin’
And I can’t stand to call on you
Because you never answer and you never call
I just don’t know what to do

When that bird don’t fly anymore
And you’re living soul to soul
You cannot stand to see the bard
Deep in your heart

I remember when we used to talk
I was whisperin’ to you down the hall
It was a conversation about validation
It don’t mean nothing at all

When that bird don’t fly anymore
And you’re living soul to soul
You cannot stand to see the bard
Deep in your heart

I waited for you
I was standing in the rain
I called out to you
Well, you never came

So when that bird don’t fly anymore
And you’re living soul to soul
You cannot stand to see the bard
Deep in your heart

I remember when we used to talk
I was whisperin’ to you down the hall
It was a conversation about validation
It don’t mean nothing at all

When that bird don’t fly anymore
And you’re living soul to soul
And you cannot stand to see the bard
Deep in your heart
Track Name: You Know It's True
Have you ever felt so cold
You can feel it in your throat?
And there ain’t no last summers rose
To hold on to.

All the lies you told yourself
Do they really mean something now?
If you gotta do it, you gotta do it by yourself
Oh yes do, and you know it’s true.

Well, that bird she don’t fly no more
She’s gone, she’s gone for good.
She left for the western shore
Never said goodbye.

Well, I’d very much like to see her again
Along with all my friends
So bring along ole Patti and Jim
We’d have a good time, you know it’s true.

All those debts you have to pay
Will they leave you some fine day
Or will they carry you to your grave
Inside of you.

All the things that you’ve done wrong
Though you didn’t mean any harm
You’re gonna carry them in your arms
They’re gonna stick with you, you know it’s true.
