no one to ask about fast cars and heroes
no one to tell me my music's too loud
and the freedom is so bittersweet
feels like nothing in life ever ends up complete

gave me the lecture 'bout trouble and girlfriends
told me i will cut the grass and my hair
he's the same man that bought me the toy red guitar
and he held me and lifted me up to the stars
with just one hand... the strongest man in the world

something in our house grew tired one summer
he held onto his american dream
well a man can be swallowed by pride
and he smiled as i walked up the aisle with my bride
and shook my hand... the strongest man in the world

stood by the bed where the old man was fading
watched as the power went out of his eyes
and i knew that his dreaming would not be destroyed
when i saw what he meant to my own little boy
hand in hand... with the strongest man in the world


from i am here now, released January 1, 1999

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
