about

This album was written recorded in the span of seven days in the winter of 2018. Though a sonic departure from previous work, the energy and attitude of the creative process felt akin to the imperfect and honest tradition of folk music.

All instruments played and recorded by Eric George
Mixed by Eric George
Mastered by Jer Coons at Future Fields in Burlington VT

Excerpts by Carl Sandberg's "Poems for Children"
Caedmon Records ‎ TC 1124

Track Name: Song of Love
SONG OF LOVE

Go, go, go to the show
Don't I look like Romeo
I got something you need to know
I got a song of love on the radio

Go, go, go to the show
Don't I look like Romeo
I got something you need to know
I got a song of love on the radio

Honey take my photograph
And prove to me I'm real
Post it on the internet
And don't forget to hold the wheel

Feel honey when I croon
Center of the stage
My notebooks are filled with hits
On every single fucking page

Go, go, go to the show
Don't I look like Romeo
I got something you need to know
I got a song of love on the radio

You know me honey
You've seen my face
I've done a few interviews
I play here every Friday night
The cooks all give me great reviews

I know it's so 'cause I've been told
That I'm an old soul
I do my best with what I've got
But I'm carrying a heavy load

Go, go, go to the show
Don't I look like Romeo
I got something you need to know
I got a song of love on the radio
Track Name: Nothing But Trouble
NOTHING BUT TROUBLE

You get run out of every town
Looking all the women up and down
You're in love with God but ooh the Devil
I thought I liked you
But you're nothing but trouble

You got a song you wanna sing
You show it off like a diamond ring
Then you smile to show that you're on the level
I thought I liked you
But you're nothing but trouble

You get run out of every town
Giving everyone the run around
You dig yourself a hole
Then you hide the shovel
I thought I liked you
But you're nothing but trouble
Track Name: Ambition
AMBITION

Yeah, how you gonna do it
How you gonna get what you want
How you gonna get it
How you gonna get what you want

Ambition

Yeah, how you gonna win it
How you gonna get what you want
How you gonna do it
How you gonna get what you want

Ambition
Track Name: Departure
DEPARTURE

It's enough to drive a soul to sadness
Raised in dust made of famous ashes
Enough to drive a soul to sadness
Track Name: All She's Got
ALL SHE'S GOT

So you wanted, you wanted everything
When she said no you fought cause you wanted
All she's got

You were told when you were young
The world is yours and so you wanted
All she's got

She told it true when she said goodbye
You never did listen when she was done giving
All she's got

You never did listen
There's something that you're missing
Can't you figure it out
You're full of suspicion
And it's left you wishing
That you can still work it out

She is gone because you wanted
All she's got

You never did listen
There's something that you're missing
It wasn't what you planned
Cause the thought of opposition
To your imposition
You just can't understand

She is gone because you wanted
All she's got
Track Name: For Myself
FOR MYSELF

Oh, I need a little something for myself
Oh, I feel it coming as sure as death

Wanted to, wanted to
So that's what I'm gonna do
Wanted to, wanted
What's it got to do with you

Oh, I need a little something for myself
Oh I hear it coming from the well

Wanted to, wanted to
So that's what I'm gonna do
Wanted to, wanted
What's it got to do with you

Oh, I need a little something for myself
Oh I feel it coming as sure as breath

Oh I need a little something for myself
For myself
