    This is a sweet little documentary filmed by the talented Jed Wells. It documents the making of my last record "Someday, Someday" as well as footage of touring, house concerts, and a music video of "Calling Your Name." This albums was recorded live with up to 10 musicians playing together in the same room. I loved this process of making music with people I care about and in a setting that puts the songs first. Hope you enjoy!

about

my grandfather was a farmer. he never could leave his land. i'm sure part of the inspiration for this song came from him. the character in this song wanted to follow the footsteps of his grandfathers and work on the open sea, but his father had given him land to work. this song is his dream of 'someday someday' being able to follow his heart, even if not during his life.

lyrics

I aint got a bill in my wallet
but i’ve got a lot of land
hell i don’t even got a passport
but I’m not gonna waste my time,
about those old plans

when they lay me down in a box
please sail me out to sea
i’ve spent all my life being tied to this land
please don’t bury me.

My granddad worked the fishing rigs
and his daddy before him
after 3 months sick traveling to a new life
my father swore he’d never be near ocean again.

before the world had her way with me
when i still dared to believe
I saw my hands pulling up those nets
pulling in the part always missing from me


when they lay me down in a box
please sail me out to sea
i’ve spent all my life being tied to this land
please don’t bury me.


still in my dreams the ocean comes and carries me
i can hear her say ‘someday’ ‘someday’

her eyes were the color of dry fields
we worked the land hand in glove
I planted my life in her love or I planted my life on solid ground
easier to leave an old idea, for one I could taste, and touch, in this new love


STILL when they lay me down in a box
please sail me out to sea
i’ve spent all my life being tied to this land
please don’t bury me.
