Promo Album for US / Canada 2010 tour


From a reel to reel I listen close
push my hand up to the speaker
good vibrations running into me
got a pushbike called the Vindeck
taped my radio to the crossbar
to hear the bands we loved to sounds of our wheels

Fell in love with a girl who leaned against a red brick wall
in one day disappears from this world
I've had gladness on my tongue I catch like snow when I was your flag
I've seen time end things

Unleash them dogs of love
they make sparks with their claws

Well your daddy was in a dark place when he left you for depression
leaves a little spy glass in us all some days
and your momma's the gentle breeze among the whirlwinds tail
you see heaven when she smiles

In the garden a silver birch tree slightly leaning to the right
in my memories the leaves were shimmering gold
I've been pulled beneath the surface like a spy into the night
and I've kissed the mouth of happiness and grief

Unleash them dogs of love
they make sparks with their claws
