about

Written during class while I was going to school and recorded in a student session at Full Sail University - me and Michael Chavez in a small recording suite for 4 hours with a little bit of everything - keys, percussion, etc. This was a fun session and the students recording it really got into it, which was nice.

They mixed it down at the end of the session, but then the DAT was blank, so I had to talk the instructor from the session into pulling the tape (it was recorded to 24-track analog) and mixing it again. He did, so all was well.

lyrics

Lyrics:
The songs of the harpers are settling into my ears and I can hear the dusk in their fingers, and I think it's beautiful.
So having a reason to ask you a question is only the tip of the iceberg, but every is settling on you.

And even if I'm insane and you're to blame, I would love to, I would love to.
And you can see that singing to me is a waste - I'm already floating and in the clouds, I'm allowed to be circling and my circumference is everything you need it to be.

So drifting comes easy if the only thing you have that's holding you down is miles away from here.
And everyone's asking for you and you're thinking it might be worth a minute or two, since you're here anyway.

And even if I'm wrong and you'll come along, I would love to, I would love to.
And if you think that I'm needing a drink than you're probably right if you're leaving tonight and in my car we're falling apart again, and I think I'm tired but I'm everything that you need me to be.
