Written 2011.

lyrics

I spent a lifetime ago
padding and packing these sorry bones
And as for the suitcase
On the bed, I know
It's fine, until the padding goes
The earth, cracks and crumbles in my hands
Gives me a feeling, I want to get them clean but can't
And these movies rewind to the parts that last
And I'm tired and I'm going to bed
And I feel I deserve nothing
And then I feel I'm not getting enough
Between being born and dying
I'm hiding the times I've flown
My eyes looks up
To the passing planes
My arms reach out
Oh to the chuffing moving things
With the windows open, I can feel the rain
With the curtain blowing I believe everything
You say
My problem's never been geography
And I feel I deserve nothing
And then I feel I'm not getting enough
Between being born and dying
I'm hiding
The times I've flown

about

The Second Wife Chapel Hill, North Carolina

As I was recovering from a heart problem, I amassed a huge amount of songs. I asked the best and most versatile musicians I know to help me make a record. Bob Wall (Razzle) played guitar, Dave Perry (Jett Rink) played bass, and Chuck Garrison (Superchunk) played drums. Chris Gilchrist (Shipwrecker), played lap steel and Caitlin Cary (Whiskytown),
did background vocals. It's called Tourist.
