Lyrics
twelve days on the same tank of gas
must be the holidays
and a mid afternoon nap
i am dreaming that everything will last

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

i see you take my breath apart
i am watching you dance for the first time
my eyes are shut but it is not dark
i feel you dance for the first time

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

i carry my bags up another flight
i see you sleeping in our bed tonight

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

i will never change my ways for you
i think you like the thing i do
and i know just what you would say

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

will your voice always match your eyes
the way they do when i arrive
will you marry me
would you help me climb into your tree
feed me little seeds
get to the root before i bleed

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

the sky is black all to the south
your stain is in my mouth
and i wait the wait
the sweetest time
no clock could ever capture

as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop
as long as you dont stop

whoa
dude this is great. you walk the fine line between strange and accessible so well. this is as good imo as the best sparklehorse tune. love the percussion and the vocal styling. when i say this is great no bullshit - i'm listening as critically as i can and it delivers in every way - lots of people get lazy with a tune like this, but it's obvious that you've thought about every sound.

thanks
the word "sparklehorse" has a great sound. i will go listen to them. i did spend a good amount of time arranging the underplay of the two guitars. i like the harmonic value they bring. thank you for the vote of support, very much appreciated.

Reminds me of Pink Floyd. Laid back feel, really nice changes. Complementary sound choices, love the guitar tone with all that sustain. Good imagery in the lyric ("take my breath apart","help me climb into your tree"). Good work here.

i
do think of my work as poetry. sometimes it works better than others but my goal is always to create some thing lyrically as well as musically. thanks

You know...
how much I respect you as an artist and performer. This is what I have come to expect from you Tim. I wish to christ I could put something together as good as this, or any of your songs for that matter. I have to say... not a big fan of your scatting abilities bro. I think something interesting instrumentally (which you shine at btw) would be more in line with the color of this one. I really love the break at the 4:00 minute mark.
Peace

this
started as a blues tune, or at least my version, my objective was to stay as raw as possible, but then i start to here sonic possibilities.....remember the days of the two track recorder and that was it...thanks again for your comments. i a;ways look forward to hearing from you

Strangely engaging!
Hi Tim. Strangely engaging! I like your understated, effected vocals and the guitar work is really solid. Floyd-like in style. Thanks for the post. Regards, Peter.

has a very Roger Waters vibe going on, anything in the Waters vein is tops to me, I hope that don't offend. Enjoyed the scatting. Downloaded thanks!

Like others here I hear the clear Floydisms.......but it also has that raw grunge meets high art of Lou Reed. The variety of guitar textures are wonderful. And the lazy drum groove has just a hint of jazz swing to it. Makes it flow nicely!

The color of Pink
Has lots in common with the Floyd, that progression is a distillation of there approach, do not misunderstand I am not complaining about it, just commenting on it as it appears to me, I enjoyed listening to this piece...
