What can I do
I've never wanted to get through to anyone like you now
Through to you
All that I say
I'm hoping will come out OK because I'm apprehensive
Don't want to intrude

What can I do
Can't do a lot when I'm tied in a knot

Who can I blame
For making me feel this way, I'll put the blame on you now
Don't know what else to do
All that I know
I'm thinking of letting it go cause it makes no more sense now
Not in front of you

How am I to
Turn my icicle hot when I'm tied in a knot

What can I do
To find out if I want to with you, you make me so unsure now
So confused
I never thought
That I could ever be re-taught in everything I know now
Just by letting it go

What can I do
I feel like setting rot when I'm tied in a knot
What can I do
Who have I got when I'm tied in a knot

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
