written by rob lamothe and mike daley


feel the coldness of your fingertips
watch the blood and the life
draining from your lips
separate you from your flesh and bone
liberate you….your god can take you home
when you go down
i believe a gentle soul will
float up to the stars and find a place to rest
with the forgiving moon
and I believe it will only do me good
when I can forgive you too
but it’s too soon...
when you go down
i’m so tired…I wonder if you’re tired too
here is your beautiful relief now
you can sleep but I have so much work to do…
you can sleep but I have so much work to do…
one step forward, one step back
one towards the light
one towards the black
when you go down…


from being human, released January 1, 1998

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!
