Silver Wood 02:38
Swimmer swims when the Day begins and the Waves come 'round to see Afternoon waitin' On the moon to Come up from the trees Slow, steady as she goes Breathing, believing Silver Wood Star shooting in The heart of night like an Angel with a bow Astronaut in his Satellite looking down On us below Slow, steady as she goes Breathing, believing Silver Wood All your life, looking for some place to fall Somewhere to call - home

Raise your head from the foot of the bed Hope you've forgotten things that I said Morning last I'll clean up the glass Sun behind curtains shining like brass You need time to breathe I believe that's a sign I can read I'm alone, it feels like home I believe that's a sign Cut my chin shaving again Red water swirling down the drain No cure for me, lycanthropy If I keep pretending you'll never see You need time to breathe I believe that's a sign I can read I'm alone, it feels like home I believe that's a sign
3.
Don't you forget To feel the rain To let the sun Ease the pain Learn from the vine Take your time And you'll weave A tapestry Remember to Seize the day Sweep the stones That show the way Where you pulled the weeds And planted seeds Soon you're gonna be Who you want to see You're a garden Overgrowth Holding back the stream Put in your hands Make the water clean Be present in your mind There's always time To lose the bull Be beautiful You're a garden
4.
You don't feel like diamond You feel like snow When it's time you'll be leavin' You don't know how not to go I saw a countryside Reflected in your eyes A beautiful creature waiting To take to the sky And I know I can't follow And you've got to grow I need a diamond And you feel like snow You feel like a zephyr You don't feel like home You wanna be with the grass and sea And not this flesh and bone You can't hold forever In the palm of your hand No matter what you tell me There's a line in the sand And I know I can't follow The way to me is closed I need a diamond And you feel like snow
5.
It's always darkest Right before the gone And you don't even know if You've got the strength to carry on There's always a question Comes 'round time to time You can push it to the shadows You can't keep it from your mind Yours might be, the life you save If you can just remember Love comes in waves Love comes in waves When the years have left you Behind a strangers door The dream that you wanted Doesn't want you anymore That time when you turned left When you should have made a right And there aren't any angels In this cold, dark night Yours might be, the life you save If you can just remember Love comes in waves Love comes in waves Yours might be, the life you save If you can just remember Love comes in waves... Is there anybody out there Is there anybody listening Are there ears on the airwaves To receive this transmission Is there anybody out there Is there anybody listening It's not the end of the movie It's just an intermission Love comes in waves Love comes in waves
6.
Should've known better Than to bet against Heaven Rollin' them bones Snake eyes and sevens When you're following a falling star You don't worry 'bout the weather When you're following a falling star Love will make you cruel Make you change your direction Make you bend every rule And forget every lesson When you're following a falling star You don't worry 'bout the weather When you're following a falling star

Inside 03:10
I don't mind thinking 'bout time But some people won't let it go I'm a young man in my mind And one day you're gonna know The body ain't the soul And the mind will come and go Though the years may ebb and flow There's a light, inside When I was young they told me I Saw the world through ancient eyes And the words I used held the sting of truth And a wisdom my face belies But, the body ain't the soul And the mind will come and go Though the years may ebb and flow There's a light, inside Kaleidoscope spins, the fanfare begins And the carnival's back in town The Blue Parade is starting to fade Still searching for the perfect sound 'Cause, the body ain't the soul And the mind will come and go Though the years may ebb and flow There's a light, inside
8.
Holes in the time line See what you want to see Just looking for yourself When you look at me Can't write a story From just one picture Can't pull a molecule Out of the mixture You're making me up in your mind Adjust your vision Another story shows You're squeezing me into Somebody else's clothes You can't write a story From just one picture Can't pull a molecule Out of the mixture You're making me up in your mind Is it all out there? Tell me what you perceive Or just a hologram You'd like to believe Look at my Facebook What do you see there? A dummy smiling Glasses and long hair You're making me up in your mind
9.
Elsewhere 03:38
I'm going Elsewhere Where the world won't trouble me Where the wind and the rain Will set my spirit free I'll ride the Lonely Pony Wishing the past good bye Loose my lasso from lost lovers Let the tumbleweeds roll by I'm going Elsewhere I've had enough rough living Ain't it tough when your stuck in a rut And the hive's alive like a seaside dive And you feel like taking your cut And going Elsewhere No more lies, just empty skies Nothing to weigh you down Dump the bin and start again Don't know just where I'm bound But I'm going Elsewhere

Major Key 03:14
Play guitar That's who we are As the kids go by We're glued to the radio Awkward hair Never here but there Home ain't home Hit the warehouse row I want the world to be In a major key But it's hard when life before Was all in minor chords Striking out What's love about It felt so strong Always too late or too soon Drink your lunch Hey, this ain't the Brady Bunch Can't wait to play Out of touch and out of tune I want the world to be In a major key But it's hard when life before Was all in minor chords Friend of mine I guess we had our time Chasing those early dreams Never to bend or bow I promised you We were gonna see it through I've been late for rehearsal For so long now I want the world to be In a major key But it's hard when life before Was all in minor chords

When I'm dying I'll see Naomi of Pearl Island Once again My dearest friend We'll go flying Through endless rooms And sighing blooms Hand in hand Hand in hand Always smiling Naomi of Pearl Island In the end In the end All the while I'm Holding on To the fading gong And grains of sand Grains of sand When the dream completes it's run And all the ties have come undone I believe she'll be the one To guide me When I'm dying I'll see Naomi of Pearl Island Once again My dearest friend We'll go flying Through endless rooms And sighing blooms Hand in hand Hand in hand

about

Wild Hare is sort of a collection of comfort music.

These songs started coming to me back when the lock down for Covid began and I think my mind and creative consciousness was venturing back into the familiar sounds of my childhood - acoustic laden AM radio classics - as a way to fend off the uncertainty and gloom. I think it hearkens back to the sort of soundscapes you might have absorbed as a young'un while maybe recuperating from a long day of running in the grass or playing 'hide & seek' at twilight. Melodies echoing from another room, almost heard as you drift away.

Some of these tunes are genuinely meant to be uplifting songs, and others are hopefully cathartic in their expressions of sadness and loss. Though they suffer from the unavoidable transference from the underworld to the waking world and an imperfect vessel to transfer them, they benefit from the collaboration of a few of my amazing musician friends lending their considerable talents to the recordings.

I have felt as though this collection was sort of meant to be enjoyed in the background, frankly. Just put on and let 'em play, to be absorbed and not scrutinized. Let these songs haunt your room.
