about

Perhaps the best recorded song of the bunch. 8 minutes and 3 different genres within the song. This was a collaboration of myself and my longtime writing partner, Alex Plotkin.

The only words were a hodgepodge of ad-libs made up from an old recording. As I started to add to Alex's first 2 verses it was clear the middle part became an ode to my children as they were coming of age.

The line, “Speak your mind, take it to your grave” I thought was really important- Even ironically adding to this spread between love and hate.

My favorite line is “Time pases, love fades.” I once heard that Bob Dylan's entire catalog could be summed up with those words.

lyrics

Texas

Things get sweeter, sweeter than this
You got a know now what you have missed
run those colors that you can possibly feel
Goes to your soul and it wont be a dream

For get the equation
Formulate this
I cant imagine your first kiss
I know your guardians and your secrets too
One by One Sugar pie2 by 2

Brave the storm
Ball and Chain
Into your light now
Into your rain

You can feel it
Its coming through
Got its own life grabs hold of you

Time Passes
Love Fades
Into the stars now
Don’t you ever Evade

Stand tall
Proud and brave
Speak your mind son
Take it to your grave

Finer and finer, finally you
You know what Im saying,
You know what to do
Change the station, Change the tune
I know your weekend and your money too

We all come to have a good time
I can do yours, you can do mine
