about

A compilation of songs written in the spring of 2011. These are mostly sketches of love songs that have had no place to go and haven't gone anywhere, so I have gathered them all together with one another.

This compilation is called West Coast Heart II because it contains songs that were written at the same time as the songs on West Coast Heart and with the same (lovelorn) consciousness.

This is the beginning of my efforts to organize the immense body of work I've produced over the last three years.

Track Name: Red Wine Soul
Tapirs trampled the garden
Don't waver, tender sister,
We'll sow all night
and by morning time
We'll have a lonely hour
where we can dance!

The neighbors, they're older
they're smoking.
Flavors, they capture your nature,
by full moon light,
and I'm full,
red wine soul,
you're mine
all mine.

The words I do forget to say
are a way out.
The plans will always have to change,
it won't pan out.

And I'm full,
red wine soul,
you're mine.
all mine.
Track Name: The Lowlands
Look me up in the lowlands,
it's alright, dear,
but you broke my pen.

I'll wade through hot water,
molten magma,
broken glass,
oh ho!
I'll lay in the thorny pasture,
cool my jets,
sit my ass down!

Ain't no way to live..
In fear of dying.
There ain't no other way I know,
you've got to let yourself go.
Brother I know you've got plenty,
brother fill me up,
I'm running on empty.

Look at me..
I'm a poor man,
yellow-bellied eyes,
no square to spare.
Look at me..
I'm a poor man,
but when the sun comes out,
I'm vanity fair.

Ain't no way to live
in fear of dying,
in fear of dying,
in fear of dying.

I'll wade through hot water,
molten magma,
broken glass,
oh ho!
I'll lay in the thorny pasture,
cool my jets,
sit my ass down.
Track Name: The Spirit And The Morning
Send the spirit into the fields,
flowing, spill out,
lava soap,
stain the hands,
paint them
a clean green.

Oh I lost and I found daylight.
Oh we fought the morning
with candlelight.

The hollow chest
perfect for hollow little hearts
and half-felt regrets.
Spirit send me off,
send me far away,
I'll never look back.

My love,
I'll never look back.

Spirit send me off,
take me far away,
I'll never look back.
Track Name: On My Way (But I Need My Woman)
Sorrow's singing on the payphone,
On the long, long way home,
you see my worries,
will keep living on.

The backward caboose,
still in the Autumn crossfire,
I'm on my way back home,
but I miss my woman.
I'm on my way back home.

It's in the way you laugh,
in the way you walk,
the way you talk talk talk.
Contradictions,
send me on my way love,
I'm on my way,
I'm on my way.

I'll meet you in the light of day now,
In the pouring rain oh,
walk walk walk
baby walk walk walk
baby feel my love
you better feel my love
better feel my love.

I'm on my way back home,
but I'm caught in the crossfire,
I'm on my way back home,
but I need my woman,
I need my woman.
Track Name: South California

Track Name: Sul Ross Heights
Sul Ross heights,
I figure that I don't care about it.
I'm sorry, but I don't care to shout.
The nights would just wear me out without
the tremble of your sweet hands.
And I figure I'll die without you around.

I'll never get around,
I'll never get,
I'll never get to the top of you.
Sul Ross,
Sul Ross.

Eyes in the back and eyes in the front.
Spring in the mirror and fire in the trunk.
It's time.

Sul Ross heights,
the wicker bin full of dice,
and I figure I'll lose it all to you now.
The window will swing ope'
and let you in..
Into my arms tonight,
no way out.

And I figure that I could do without
the smiles you wear for me,
all worn out.
Now I figure I'll die without you
around.

Sul Ross
Track Name: Sandburn
I love my lady.
She piles the gravy high.
When it comes to ladies.
She's number one.

You know it's hard on me.
Yes, it's hard,
don't let it slip beside.
Yes, it's hard.
