i touched down at gatwick
no change in my pocket
i'm on a train thinkin
'bout singin for my supper...

earthquakes and floodwaters
the rhine river, my father's father
... and alexander

hey, i miss you, rosemary jean
and just when you're over my leavin
i'll be home again...

by the time your mother reads this
i'll be drunk in andernoch
i'm forty-two bloody years old
and i don't miss god...

i got shadows in dreams playin on my cd
and i got this dark english beauty
sittin across from me...

and i can't stop thinkin of barbed wire
bombs fallin and friendly fire

i'm haunted by pregnant women
and stupid, skinny junkies
girls in polyester and my lack of money...

maybe i'm just fillin notebooks and it
don't mean a thing
maybe it sounds like something
but that don't make it nothing...

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!
