Lyrics

something must be going on
cuz wherever i go
i'm seeing empty shoes by the side of the road
might be one, or sometimes both

all mixed up but remember a time
by a fifth floor window drinking coffee and wine
you could feel the city flowing by you

you still wake up some nights, consumed with dread
scared of being dead
the world is nothing like you'd want to see
but why should it be, it's more free than that
and anyway, theres a good chance tomorrow's a sunny day

ripples in sand, from the wind that's coming
off the land, that turns the windmills
and the sand fleas are jumping off the seaweed

and you and me, and other riff-raff
down at the shore, walk by the waves
so we can watch folks falling off their surfboards

Very cool angular progression. Like the skanking guitar and piano. Love the minor verse/major chorus. Some awesome changes in this piece.
Man,I really admire your songwriting. Totally original sound, poppy but with an edge.

man there are some nice lines in here. I really like the 'world's more free than that' bit. love the shiny rhythm. this has so much going on melodically. i hear costello and sloan and pavement and hell, joe jackson. really impressive. that chorus could start a sing along at a funeral. 2nd listen dude this is REALLY good. DL'd. I bet I find a lot more I like as I'm walking to the train. Gong hit!

Sure
is different. A party mix of styles. Kind of hopeful and upbeat vocal from the 60's. Thanks.

Loved it...
I'll echo John's review as that is pretty much my take on this as well; lot of impact with those marvelous chord changes, lyrical lyrics, a very welcome 60s style vocal and that guitar break is in the pocket (liked that inverted cymbal sound it ended with--great touch). This is very SOLID work, I should be paying to listen. Thanks for sharing it! Michael

Pushing the envelope
I like the smooth quirky transitions. Minor to Major?
Not sure but it sounds excellent and if it does do that
then extra kudos . Nice vocals compliment the music real well

major/minor
I think the verse chord is a 9th plus sharp 11th chord? maybe?
theres a mix of major and minor chords throughout.
glad you liked!

Wow
It's been a while since I've been to MJ. I almost forgot how good you are. This is so unique, but not in a "hey... look how different I'm being way". Which is so tough, but this comes across smart. Download.

thnx
very kind of you, glad that you came by to comment.
I was consciously trying out some different sounds, but ultimately it was more of the same s^&t and I'm not really too bothered by that!

Had me with that first chord...Tasty dissonance and jazzy progression.You seem to weave in enough pop to keep it mainstream.Got to say I like this as much as anything heard around here lately....Reminds me of Trey Anastasio.

Unique blend of styles that still maintains its pop base, with a twist of added sophistication :-) I'm getting Joe Jackson fronting Steely Dan... Fine song. Original and captivating.

quirky and cool!!
Nice guitar chords, like the laid back sound of the mix, kind of a Big Star/DBs/Elliot Smith vibe party going on here. Good stuff!
