1.
I am missing you again And it is only just after walk’s end It’s a different feeling when I know That you’re coming home to me through the snow Your warmth eases my heart The heart and the feeling of being apart Body as warm as your soul I’ll never be cold As long as I know It has been a long year That ended yesterday It has been a lonely year I like being able to stay Your warmth eases my heart The heart and the feeling of being apart Body as warm as your soul I’ll never be cold As long as I know

Headwind on the mountain Oh give me the cool rush Descending on the road Wind is blowing from the pinnacle to the river And then winding me… back home In the dark the road it opens slow And it gives just enough time to let me know To bend it left, or straight ahead Or right, toward my rightful bed And how about we ride, ride, ride Come to our rest place and just keel And we don’t care, care, care If it’s a dream or if it’s real
3.
I chose carefully, words that spoke unfully that day That day Looking out my window, waiting to be found Maybe unspoken love could use more sound some days Some days Stumbling upon you night and day I go for a walk in case you come my way Nothing in common but there’s lots to say I am feeding the eyes that hold me under sway Today Woe is me, I have no choice No picture to keep, no passionate voice today I chose carefully, words that spoke unfully that day That day

Tried playing the part in the daylight It made coming home It made nighttime a delight I tell myself that I’ll quit I wrote it down To remind me of how strongly I feel about it But I’m still here, I’m still here I tell myself that I’ll quit But I’m still here Oh, I’m still here

about

This EP is a reworking of some songs I wrote about 20 years ago when my musical pseudonym was Go Pet. I updated some of the more embarrassing lyrics (though plenty remain), gave them new titles, and a lick of fresh musical paint.

I recorded most of it over lockdown 2020, naturally this was done at home. Thanks to Lehmann B Smith for the inspiration to record something while we all waited for semi-normalcy.

Mixed and mastered by Adam Casey at The True Vine Recording Studio.
