about

Dreaming In Twin is an intensely personal double album reflection on life, love, childhood, nature, and purpose. The album is organized in two parts - Part One: Beautiful Secret (tracks 1-12) and Part Two: Weary Soul, Restless Bird (tracks 13-24) - and is inspired by some of my favorite classic artists such as Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, Shuggie Otis, Tears For Fears, Prince, Harry Nilsson, Sly Stone and Marvin Gaye. But its main inspiration is all the beautiful friends I've found while falling in love with nature and our home, Earth.

Come get to this dream!

Track Name: Tape
Driving around with a tape and it feels like
Driving around with a tape and it feels like
Everyone knows baby just who you are
You are an angel from heaven afar
And if I ever make it out of this car
Then I’ll bring you light
Track Name: Shampoo
Reading the shampoo bottle in the shower
Trying to take the day as slow as I can
I’m so afraid I might forget your hands

Listening to Blood On The Tracks
Listening to Marvin
Trying to figure maybe just who I am
I still like to sing like this once in awhile
And if brother Frank can bring it back
I can crack a smile

I don’t wanna cause no pain unnecessary
And I don’t want the Dylan thing to just be temporary
I know it’s a mess
But a mess is all I know

Wondering when we’re gonna die
And will I make it?
And you’re still the only girl
Who ever got me fully naked
You made me cry
You made me change my tune

Maybe if voting were more like dancing
We would do it
If breaking up were more like romancing
We’d be screwing each other up again, my only friend
(My lonely friend)
I’ll never face the sunset again
Track Name: That Thang
What's the best way down from your mountain?
I want to stay young, where's the fountain?

Is your G line real? Do you mean it?
I can't trust what I feel 'til I've cleaned it

I laid roses down on your windshield
I can't trust what I feel 'til I’m healed, baby
Track Name: The Waiting One
Leaves like a flock a songbirds
Headed somewhere
I'd take you anywhere again
And live with you there forever
I will, I will...

Stood at the gate in a haze
No one followed
I'd take you anywhere again
And live with you there forever
I will, I will, I will...

How long have I been standing here?
And must I wait forever for your love?

Looking out across the pond
And it's raining
I'd take you anywhere again
And live with you there forever
I will, I will, I will...

How long have I been standing here?
Oh, and must I wait forever for your love?

Leaves like a flock a songbirds
Headed somewhere
I'd take you anywhere again
Track Name: The Hole In The Sky
You left a hole in the sky
When you went out of my life
You left a hole in the sky
When you went out of my life
You left a hole in the sky
When you went out of my life
You left a hole in the sky

No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one better touch me
Or hold my hand
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man

You left a hole in the sky
When you went out of my life
You left a hole in the sky
When you walked out of my life
You left a hole in the sky
When you walked out of your life
You left a hole in the sky

No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one better touch me
Or hold my hand
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man

No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one better touch me
Or hold my hand
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man

No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
Don’t you ever touch me
Or hold my hand
No one ever taught me
To walk like a man
Track Name: Everybody Wants A Puppy
I think you know you want a pup
I mean you know you want a pup
I mean, I think you know you want a puppy someday
Everybody wants a puppy someday

I think you know you want a pup
I mean, c’mon you know you want a pup
I think you know you want a puppy someday
Everybody want a puppy someday
Track Name: Here To Pick Up Some Kisses
Oh, I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen her?
I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen her?

She told me to meet her at the corner store
Where she first gave me kisses
Now I want some more

I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen her?
I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen her?

She told me to meet her by the corner store
Where she first gave me kisses
Now I want some more

I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen her?
I’m here to pick up some kisses from my baby
Tell me, have you seen my love?
Track Name: The Waiting One (Reprise)
Leaves like a flock a songbirds
Headed somewhere
I'd take you anywhere again
Track Name: Sending Out The Wind Again
No one listens to my call
Shouldn't they all?
No one listens to my call
I said, shouldn't they all?

So I keep sending out the wind again
Hoping that I come back soon

I’m floating through space and time
(Floating through space and time)

Have some fire, have some rain
Bury your pain
There's a river running in my brain
And I’m feeling no pain

So I keep sending out the wind again
Hoping that I come back soon
I know what I have to do
Hoping this wind knows it too

Don’t you ever, don’t you ever, don’t you ever
Want a new thing?
Don’t you ever want a new world?

Traveling eagle down the line
With something of mine
Listen close enough and you can hear time

So I keep sending out the wind again
Hoping that I come back soon
I know what I have to do
Hoping this wind knows it too
Track Name: Godness In You/Have I Done This Before?
And I see the godness in you
The godness in you
The godness shining through all the things that you do

I see the godness in you
The godness in you
The godness shining through all the things that you do

Little girl
Big old world
Pushed her down
When no one was around

I felt a tap on the shoulder
Like someone saying, "What'd you do now?"

And I wonder
Have I done this before?
Have I done this before?
Have I done this before?
Before, before…

Bigger girl
Smaller world
Stayed in town
When no one was around

I felt a tap on the shoulder
Like someone saying, "Your life starts now."

And I wonder
Have I done this before?
Have I done this before?
Have I done this before?
Before, before…

Lay me down
Go to sleep
Pray to something
Yeah, I'm afraid of getting sick

Lay me down
I pray to someone
Have I done this before?
Have I talked to you before?
Track Name: Awkward Age
Living in an awkward age
Everybody's acting strange

What are we waiting to tell each other?
What were we born to say?
We keep on going through hell alone
And in each others' way

Cuz we're living in an awkward age
Everybody's acting strange

You ain't been speaking your mind
It seems you're set to waste away
What if some beast in the wind came visiting
And ripped your words away

See, we're living in an awkward age
And everybody's acting strange

I'm gonna take my words
Lonely Teardrops Man
I see you staring at me
Won't be like you if I can
I'm gonna say the things
I really need to say
I hope it's not too late
I'm getting washed away

Say
I still love her
(Ain't no changing, changing)
I fucked up
(Ain't no changing, changing)
My family's dying
(Ain't no changing, changing)
I could be trying
Baby, baby…

But we're living in an awkward age
Everybody's acting strange

(Brain secrets fly out like fireworks)

Living in an awkward age
Everybody’s acting strange

And it’s happened over and over and over and over and over
And I just don’t understand why we’re not all coming together
To make some sort of concentrated effort
To really live a different human life experience
Drastically different from all of this
I’m so weary of the way that it’s been for so long
And I don’t understand why we won’t change it

I'm so weary
I'm so weary
Track Name: Beautiful Secret
I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love
I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love

You got the city lights inside your eyes
Some think that it’s a disguise
But, uh uh…

You’ve got some sadness hidden in your smile
It makes me shake like a child
I try to keep in mind when I am blue
Your room is pink and I’m in love with you

I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love
I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love

(Guitar solo)

I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love
I got such a beautiful secret for you, baby
I got such a beautiful secret for you, love

(This is the end of Part One of the album. Feel free to take a break and return to the album for Part Two.)
Track Name: Hello My Friend/Weary Soul, Restless Bird
Weary soul
Restless bird
Gentle destroyer
Please be heard

Worried women
And lovesick men
Just please let me make it
To see sunset again

Straight into the future
Dreaming in twin
Well…
Are you in?
Track Name: By This River
Most of the time life
Seems so confusing
I don't know which way to run

Problems keep piling up
My body's aching
One more day of aging is done

But then I go walking with you babe
Get a new state of mind
And all I wanna ask you at this time
Is -

Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
There ain't nothing wrong with saying no
But a yes'd be mighty fine

I keep getting stressed out
Everyone’s talking
They’re moving faster than me

Where’s everyone going?
They keep on running
Busy, busy, busy, busy bees

But when I go walking with you babe
I get a new state of mind
And all I wanna ask you at this time
Is -

Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
There ain't nothing wrong with saying no
But a yes'd be mighty fine

(Guitar solo)

Can I bang, can I bang, can I bang…
Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
Can I bang you by this river?
Listen up, now there ain't nothing wrong with saying no
But a yes'd be mighty fine

You got the right to say no, baby…
Track Name: Message From Filby
Filby:
Hi everybody
My name’s Filby the turtle
And I’ve been scared my whole life

I spent my whole life hiding in my shell
And then one day I decided to peek my face out
And I saw a beautiful world out there

I heard the birds chirping
Singing to me
Singing songs just for me

And now I’m not afraid anymore
And I’d like to sing to you about it

You don’t have to be afraid anymore
You don’t have to be afraid anymore
You don’t have to be afraid anymore
I promise you
The world has got your back
Track Name: Sam The Cardinal
Ooh, I am a cardinal
That's what I am

I come from the north
That's where I was born
Pleased to meet you, they call me Sam

Pecking around for seed
Seed is all I need
That, and shelter from the snow

I don't know your name
But surely it's the same
This and only this I know
I know, I know

Ooh, I am a cardinal
That's what I am

I come from the north
That's where I was born
Pleased to meet you, they call me Sam

What’s so god damn funny?
Whatcha laughin’ at me for?
Tell me all about it cuz I want to know

Filby:

From his dearly departed Uncle Keith, rest in peace
We love you, Uncle Keith

Track Name: Some Tango
(Show them something)

I'm distracted
By what I see in the light
It's a snowflake
But winter is nowhere in sight

Some tango we do
(I lost him at three)
Some tango we do

Some tango we do
(I lost him at three)
Some tango we do

I understand it
A boy would shoot up his school
(What do you mean?!)
He sees godness
(Godness inside)
The faces of me and you
(Everybody, god, god, god, god…)

Some tango we do
(I lost her at thirty)
Some tango we do

Some…
(I lost her at thirty)

(The voices and sirens dance)

I'm distracted
By snowflakes in the light
(Show them something, something, something, something)
It's September
(Show them something)
Your love is nowhere in sight
Track Name: Alex & Phil
Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
If the world would come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until I know about

Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
If the world would come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until…

Alex laid some eggs the other day
Now the change is made
Cuz now there's something to protect
And something to save

Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
If the world would come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until I know about

Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
If the world would come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until…

Alex lost her eggs the other day
There's nothing more to say
The nest was robbed by a hound dog
From around the way

Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
If the world would come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until I know about

Alex and Phil
I wonder, I will
Would the world come down
If one weren't found at the top of the hill
My heart'll skip a beat until
Until

Alex & Phil
God protect their love
Track Name: Can't Fly Yet
Where did they go
When heaven knows they can’t fly yet?
Where did they go
When heaven knows they can’t fly yet?
Where did they go
When heaven knows they can’t fly yet?
Where did they go
When heaven knows they can’t fly yet?

And when I walked up and didn’t see them in the sky
It was like seeing you without love in your eyes
Track Name: World Full Of Old Souls
World full of old souls
Walking 'round, busy filling all of these holes
World full of old souls
Walking 'round, busy filling all of these holes
World full of old souls
Walking 'round, busy filling all of these holes
World full of old souls
Walking 'round, busy filling all of these holes

What did you come here to do?
What is stopping you, child?
What did you come here to do?
What is stopping you, child?
What did you come here to do?
What is stopping you, child?
What were you sent here to do?
What is stopping you, child?

And I stand here as fucked up proof
That it takes a little time
But you’re gon’ get through
You just gotta try
And you’re gon’ get through
You just gotta try
And you’re gon’ get through

Maybe the new world will come today
Sure hope we make it come today
Track Name: How Much Time
Sometimes I get real, real sad
(Filby: Don't you ever get tired of that?)
What's gon' happen without my dad?
Where's my mom going after that?

Don't push me away
Don't push me away
On a raft

All the things we believe are wrong
Everything's hidden in this song
All the things we believe the most
Roll 'em up for the compost

Oh, someday I gotta go
Someday I gotta go
I gotta go

Someday, I don't know when
Someday, I don't know when
I gotta go

And I don't know how much time is left...
Track Name: Since You Came In My Life
Girl, we don't need a telescope
We're from the stars, we already know
So if you think you’ve known me before
Two field mice kissing on the forest floor

I'm thankful for you, baby
Since you came in my life
I'm thankful for you, baby
Since you came in my life

Girl, we don't need a nature show
We're in the woods wherever we go
So if you want to dance real slow
The sparrow's singing for us to come home

I'm thankful for you, baby
Since you came in my life
I'm thankful for you, baby
Since you came in my life

I love you guys
Track Name: Dreams Come True
And I promise you guys
I promise you guys
I promise you guys

No matter how dark it gets for me or you
There is a natural, beautiful world out there that loves you

I promise you

We’re gonna have a real good time
We’re gonna make some dreams come true
We’re gonna have a real good time
We’re gonna make some dreams come true

I love all of you
I love you!

I love you
I love you
I LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE YOU, LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE

I love you

Filby:

Bye for now, everybody
