I live up on the seventh floor
You work down on the street
I press my face to the window
And see all the people that you meat
I love you and you know it's a fact
Cause you're scheduled here in my love almanac
You stand so self-confident
I need a woman like you
I pretend that you're in my living room
And I set out a homemade dinner for two
I love you and the hat on your head
Can you picture both of us happily wed
If I could have your love, I'd gladly rip off my arm
For just a little kiss, I'd give anything
You don't need to worry
If you give it I will take your pain
And glory in the thought that you don't hold me in disdain
I look at the stars in the sky
And I wonder if you're looking too
I pick the one that I like the best
And imagine I'm giving it to you
I love you and you know it's a fact
According to the notes in my love almanac
You don't need to worry
Cause this book predicts my word is true
And that I'll show what pervades and connects me into you
You don't owe me your rugs and jewelry
You can keep all your drugs and candy
All I ask of you is your understanding
You don't owe me an explanation
Don't pledge me your love forever
All I want from you is this time together

Influences include Violent Femmes, the Velvet Underground & Talking Heads, but the music of his forebears is filtered through his own distinctive world view & sonic approach, resulting in a creation uniquely his own.

Simple without being simplistic, accessible without being sycophantic, & clever without feeling smug, he achieves a compelling balance between the new & the familiar. - Scott Hollis
