I can see the key turning on the back door
Everybody’s waiting for what’s in store
I’ve been known to tug at the ol’ heart strings
And dance around fire with gasoline

You can live by a river and still pray for rain
You can live like a doctor and still feel some pain
As the seeds of denial take root in my head
The ashtray in the doorway piles up regrets

And I won’t bite my tongue
And let you off easy for the things you’ve done
The train is coming fast
Maybe it’s about time we get off the tracks
Maybe it’s about time we get off the tracks

We bought brand new hats in Tennessee
And learned a change of clothes don’t mean a thing
Like a brand new dress in an ol’ dance hall
We sought comfort in the night under Memphis stars

And you won’t bite your tongue
And let me off easy for the things I’ve done
The train is here at last
Maybe it’s about time we collect our bags
Maybe it’s about time we collect our bags

Another Nashville night but I’m Brooklyn bound
Everybody’s wondering what we’re gonna do now
It’s a choice babe to swim or drown
And I’ve been standing at the edge but I won’t back down

And we might bite our tongues
But it ain’t gonna change all that’s said and done
The train, when it comes to rest
I’ll write you a letter and wish you the best
I’ll write you a letter and wish you the best

In the span of a few years he left town for mental health, ended faulty relationships, and got fired from a job promising more than it could deliver. Too young to be wise, yet too old to be reckless, he opted for travel which took him 33,000 miles. Those memories filled a hefty suitcase of stories he shares here. ... more
