Album Notes
Here's some info about each song on this CD:

Two Hearts – This is a co-write with Cori Bishop and she started the song, so it’s really from her experience. I contributed some words as I recall… maybe some music, but I’m always so impressed with Cori’s musical directions, that I back down a lot!

Flowers and Words of Love – The TV show “The Office” inspired this song. It inspired several songs, actually. It’s rare that a TV show does that for me. I particularly love the chorus of this song because it reminds me of my favorite hooks from hit songs of the 50s.

Angel of a Man – This song was started by Cori Bishop. I contributed both some music and some words. When Cori does this song, the verses are spoken. I chose to put them to a melody because I wasn’t confident speaking these words. I love the idea of saying this to the man you’re with.

Lie Down Darlin’ – Another collaboration with Cori Bishop. She started it, and I don’t exactly know what her inspiration was. It has a folky chorus and message, I think. Good audience participation song - not the uptempo kind.

That’s What Love Can Do to Your Heart –This song was written by Richard Goldman. It appeals to me because of its timeless feel. You could hear any bluegrass artist doing this or even country artist. I I love this line: “That’s what love can do to your heart, it doesn’t matter if you’re tall or if you’re smart.” A typical Richard Goldman surprise lyric.

Last Time – I wrote this with Richard Goldman. It was inspired by an experience he had. I mainly wrote the bridge. I hope I contributed more than that, but probably not. The song is morbidly sad and funny at the same time… to me.

So Many Letters – I wrote this very early in my songwriting “career.” I was very influenced by early Bob Dylan. It was aimed at myself and my own behavior, but I made it sound like I was the one who was hurt. Actually, I had hurt a young boy very much by engaging in a love letter correspondence all summer long, while I was away at camp, then when I came back and was confronted again with the real live teenage boy, I turned away from him and broke his heart. Terrible and embarrassing.

Alone – I was in a song group and we were given a prompt: What is the perception of alone? That was exactly the way it was put. This song was my response to that prompt, so you could say it was written on assignment.

Now – I wanted to write a song with the feel of Roy Orbison’s great song, “Crying," and with the unusual structure of Gene Pitney’s devastating 50s pop song “I’m Gonna Be Strong.” (Start with a verse or two, then go to the next section like a chorus, build, build, and never come back to the verse.) I did it!

Wake Me Up – Wow. I wrote this sooo long ago. I must have been very depressed, to want to take a break altogether from life itself, until my heartache was over.

One Way Road – A Bobby Kimmel classic. This song will be around forever. I’m not a religious, or even a spiritual person. This song is the closest I’ve ever gotten to singing about God or whatever
