i’m layin’ down in your backyard
my hand around an old blue jar
but I ain’t lookin’ for no full moon
or shining star

i’m just tryin’ to catch the light of you
i’m lettin’ go my wayward past
and all these ghosts are free at last
the road is open up ahead
i don’t need to move to fast

i’m tryin’ to catch the light of you
i want to tell you something i can’t say
and all my wishin’ will not make it go away
and all my trying can not make it come true
i’m tryin’ to catch the light of you


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!
