about

"With instrumentation varying from very sparse (guitar, harp and pedal steel) to full band arrangements, the songs on Tiny Specks Of Delight encapsulate a certain idea of the West Coast sound - breezy and open - while offering a reflection on that eternal process of falling in and out of love - each song centering around a different point along love's roller coaster of learning and liberation. Contributions by Tom Heyman and Marc Cappelle (both long time Mark Eitzel collaborators), Russ Blackmar, Matt Montgomery, Willow Willow, Chris Molla, Christina Zirker, Amber Lamprecht and Bennett Grassano, make this a bit of a more produced collection than the last album."

Track Name: Spring Wind
where are the flowers i think that your eyes are closed
you hide behind a wall
I've seen you gently rise, don't want to watch you fall
but does it mean anything at all?

you took my day, you rob my soul, I hear you say
using my words, something I wrote
why should I let the spring wind
take it and blow it all?

when did you decide I was better left alone
that you had used it all
another shadow's growing and I'm feeling cold
but does it even matter at all?

you hide away, you took my thoughts, what did it take
to crush the flowers on the wall
why don't we let the spring wind
take it and blow it all?
Track Name: Kaleidoscopes
It's three in the morning in Paris
I wonder what they're doing there
And I may sometimes seem not to be there
I'm only wondering what goes through your head
Will you tell me
Will I tell you
cause I still remember from over there
Colors and dreams I sang about later

And I coast through the grapevine
just when you think you're looking for the next one
And I went down the river
There

So I'll just keep walking without a care
Ladybugs fly if you don't stare
The way we never tell like we don't care
Kaleidoscopes are flying everywhere
Will you take me
Will I take you

And I coast through the grapevine
just when you think you're looking for the next one
And I went down the river
There
Track Name: The Ringleader
you think if you dare to touch
I'll want to stay for ever
you don't even know
how many bridges I had to burn
ringleader
thinks he's a loner
always buzzed around
by pretty girls he's after

and it goes round and round and round
where is time
we've been undoing, coloring, these chapters
turn your back, roll over
breaking hearts all over
you're elsewhere
and they're all flying on the crest of your laughter

hugs just about everyone
you'll feel his arms long after
he'll slip into your dreams
just like the lover he's never been
ringleader
relentless winker
stab me with your song
if it makes you feel any better

but I'll go round and round and round
where I'm bound, there is no limits
no room for an answer
turn your back, roll over
breaking hearts all over
you're elsewhere
and they're all flying on the crest of your laughter
but I've looked into the eyes of the tiger

and it goes round and round and round
where is time
we've been undoing, coloring, these chapters
turn your back, roll over
breaking hearts all over
you're elsewhere
and they're all flying on the crest of your laughter
but I've looked into the eyes of the tiger
Track Name: Tiny Specks of Delight
oh la belle bleue

open up your ears and forget how to speak
I haven't slept a wink
oh tiny specks of delight
running the mile right off my mind

but my heart's been locked up in a cage
golden bars, skies out of range
get me out if you can
not that you would know how

oh la belle bleue

blow your friends to the moon but let me recognize
the leeways of your mind
and I've never chosen my plights
over there by the glistening dark

yeah baby you know you're in my bones
fantasy, reflection, ghost
and I never thought I'd cry
but now i'm learning how

and there's nothing to stop it from pouring out of my eyes
waves and wells

they've overflown the levees, flooded all the gates
spitting out foreign shells
oh tiny specks of delight
the wick won't take and you sang my demise

who will know how to anchor me now?
wild lifeboats, pastures of gold
will I graze, will I go

waves and wells

I heard the whistle blow
