‘When The World Was New’

No karma, no spirit, no god.
No saviour, higher power, no soul.
There is no correct way,
Only the path chosen.
So…

I loved you when the world was new,
White clouds gather in the air,
And when Rome burned, I burned for you,
Tiny worlds in the atmosphere…

Will you be the river… revealed?
The sound underneath the sound?
The willow, the meadow, the fawn?
The rise and fall?

I loved you when the world was new,
White clouds gather in the air,
And when Rome burned, I burned for you,
Tiny worlds in the atmosphere…

The rising river,
Is bruising my lips.
This scattered generation,
So kind and empty,
Blind and dead.

I loved you when the world was new,
White clouds gather in the air,
And when Rome burned, I burned for you,
Tiny worlds in the atmosphere…

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!
