about

Ars longa, vita brevis. Art is long, life is short.
What is the RPM Challenge? Write 10 new songs or 35 minutes of music, record it yourself, & make the CD artwork in the month of February, the shortest month of the year!
2013 marks my 6th year doing this epic challenge.
Within 27 days, this music was written & recorded. What a month!
February was tangled with the old. Pictures of the past floated near the surface. The style is unlike my previous albums. I tried my hand at lead playing and wrote in big leaps vocally. I believe that my students’ love for pop music has augmented my writing. Like sea glass, we are shaped and sculpted by our surroundings. Not every egg in this nest is golden, but it is a record in time. Thanks for listening

Track Name: One
You are fire and I am sea
you burn your flowers and I long to be free
you are a star that I wish upon
You hold the night and I greet the dawn

You are the wind and I am the rain
You sometimes act crazy and while calm, sometimes I act the same
You are a song that I long to sing
You dance in the trees and I bring you the spring

You are the raven and I am the steed
You guard high temples while I tend the lands and streams
You chase the moon while I tend the sun
We are not the same, but our love, our stories are one.
are one
are one
are one
Track Name: Otherside of the World
Looking out at the ageless night
I see the stars, the lights, the velvet blue
I know it’s only been two days
but I can’t help thinking of you
The city never seems to sleep
At least I know I’m not alone
And while my journey’s just begun
I think of you, our love, our happy home

On the other side of the world you sleep alone to tonight
On the other side of the world I sing to you
On the other side of the world I hold you close in my heart
it’s true, you see, you're always with me

By the sea where the pretty people play
Beautiful eyes, this city’s vibe is jet set new
And the history seeps into the voids
A wild life force, a passion burning through
And on these ancient cobbles a deja voo
The ruins of Rome, a sultan, a cup of tea
I see your face in old statues
I hear your voice in this city’s heartbeat

On the other side of the world I dream alone tonight
On the other side of the world I sing to you
On the other side of the world I hold you close in my heart
it’s true, you see, you're always with me

Bridge:
Turn up the love, turn up everything!
And from this old rooftop hear me singing out to you
I know I’ll be home when that bright moon is full
but I can’t wait that long to tell you just how I love you!

Chorus
you’re always with me babe, I’m with you.
Track Name: Adam Shea
Runaway with me
through tall trees, where the raven flies
Tell me stories, little daydreams
How my smile reflects in your eyes
Many years our hearts have entwined
we’ve sailed the seas and stars
Valentines, music, silly rhymes
I seem to end where you start - Adam Shea

Catch a comet with me
as the setting sun kisses the dancing tides
Slip a star into the sky
the one we wished upon by the riverside
You danced with me in the city park
and you danced with me by the sea
You pull me close every chance you have
Little poems fall from you to me - Adam Shea

Runaway with me
from Midwestern plains to the mountainside
Let’s sail across the sea
walk where Wilde walked, where the fairies hide
Ten years ago we me that summer’s day
in a little Gypsy Cafe
A pulse of light, a shining star, you have my heart
I love you more each passing day - Adam Shea
Track Name: Joey
Intense eyes, you wear them well
your sadness hangs softly on your back
lost in the bottom of your glass
looking up to the loves you left too fast

will someone drop you a line
or let down their golden hair
will the stars kindly fall from the sky
and bring you hope you can share

you are waiting and praying and dreaming and draining
all light from the dark that you know
you are waiting and praying and dreaming and drinking
another glass, ‘nother love, ‘nother show -- let go

you breath on the wings of your cigarette
drift like fingers through the room
beyond the bottles, the laughter, the boys
to the one with a smile like sweet perfume

and you’ll have your one night stand
and the morning light will leave you cold
and tomorrow you’ll sit here again
the same glass, the same home

you are waiting and praying and dreaming and draining
all light from the dark that you know
you are waiting and praying and dreaming and drinking
another glass, ‘nother love, ‘nother show -- let go

you are waiting and praying and dreaming and draining
all light from the dark that you know
you are waiting and praying and dreaming and drinking
another glass, ‘nother love, ‘nother show -- let go
Track Name: Ophelia
Floating downstream
past winter’s dream and rosemary
and summer’s flower fantasies
I believe. I believe.

Dweller in a tree
Sing for me a memory
Of kisses soft, my heart’s reverie
And I believe. I believe

Chorus:
“I believe the stars are fire
the sun doth move and truth’s a liar
But I never doubt your love”
I believe this mossy stream will
float me back to days of dream
Pray you, love, remember me

Willow dancing free
Weaving tides and flaps of wings
Valentines tied with endings
And I believe. I believe

Chorus

remember me....

“”influenced From Hamlet
Track Name: Breaking Free
The morning light tells me to let go
Our silly storms, our words, our waves and undertow
And in my mind your face floods back to me
My heart so heavy yet I believe in

Breaking Free, breaking free, breaking free
To where we used to be. No childish lies
Just you and me, breaking free, lovingly
I see your eyes. We’ll fight the tide. It’s not goodbye. .. it’s not goodbye

We always hurt the ones we love the most
Our silly games, our faults, the echoes of our ghosts
And yet for years we sailed the seas so free
Our love a beacon, our very gravity

Breaking Free, breaking free, breaking free
To where we used to be. No childish lies
Just you and me, breaking free, lovingly
I see your eyes. We’ll fight the tide. It’s not goodbye.

bridge:
Our war cry scream. Our stupid fight of who was wrong or right
A vivid dream, our bodies wrapped within the velvet night
And I believe this love will bring us to the break of day
If you can see and let our words and wars just fall away
then we’re..

Breaking Free, breaking free, breaking free
To where we used to be. No childish lies,
Just you and me, breaking free, lovingly
I see your eyes. We’ll fight the tide. It’s not goodbye.

It’s not goodbye.....
Track Name: Sandy
Which will be my best reward?
The sounds in my mind like the flutter of wings
The big dogs who came to the door
as I stared seeing tobacco stained rings

And I walked down the muggy street
past the shoe shine and the old hotel
The stars like the eyes of Ravens
the rumble of the distant train and a Wurlitzer
played an old familiar waltz for me
when I was Sandy

The North star sprinkled the city in gold
Where did all that time go?
and it’s true I often thought of leaving
ride the horizon’s edge to the end of the world

But back again I’d go to the streets I’ve always known
and at home, dip my hair in ink and write the dreams I’d tell no one
And I’d hear the slapping of waves from some distant sea
some memory calling out to me
when I was Sandy

And how could I forget that face
that face that smiles in the mirror
The seasons of mistakes and mellow fruitfulness
Of howling at the stars and falling to the floor

And I walked down that street again
the shoe shine’s gone and hotel too
and the stars still shine like the ravens’ eyes
and I walk down those old train tracks, looking back
I’m humbled by the innocence that still breaths free in me
because of Sandy
Track Name: Smolder
I met a friend of yours last night
In the bar that was your second home
She told me you up left, packed up
Headed somewhere you’ve never know
Then my heart shook, why now?
It’s been so long since I’d thought of you
She says I was the one that you loved
The one who was so tried and true

And the thing is, I would have dropped my silly world if you’d let me know
And you’d be here and we’d be fine
instead of burning up, we’d smolder slow

Your lips were kissing me, moving fast,
but you never said a thing
You never told me your dreams,
never knew you bought that ring
You’d make my heart race, I’d come undone
my body ached to pull you near
And then you’d run fast, all stop
never knowing what you feared

And the thing is, I would have dropped my silly world if you’d let me know
And you’d be here and we’d be fine
instead of burning up, we’d smolder slow

I met a friend of your last night
in the bar that was your second home
She told me you up left, packed up
headed somewhere you’ve never known
Then my heart stopped. Why now?
Why’d you let me go?
And if I called you, would things change?
Or are you heading me for another low?

And the thing is, I’d dropped my silly world if you let me know
And you’d be here and we’d be fine
instead of burning up, we’d smolder slow
Track Name: Journey
Two tens and barely two
I set my sails and travelled so far
My heart set on a distant star
I heard the sirens beckoning
yet I kept my course to find a love
the one I knew when I was 17
And in his eyes of pale ocean blue
the waves would roll away the truth
He’d paint the skies alive with sailors plight
and he’d pull me close in the veil of a starry night

Two tens and five we shined.
The sun of love burned strong and alive
The brightest kind that made me blind.
We floated round from sea to sea
until I found he had much more than me.
Little smiles on the winds mocking endlessly
And the storms would rage we nearly broke in two
And he’d smile... I’d get lost in oceans blue
But the winds would blow and I was left alone.
And all was lost. Time to build another home.

Three 10s and back on land
To a place where the waters end
A wolf, a hawk and a scorpio friend
The desert path of Cherokee
I danced the dusty roads to find a harmony
but the sirens call begged me to the sea
And with a wave a shook a song from my hair
drops of dreams and a silent prayer
reflected scenes of shipwrecks, love, a broken heart
And the journey moves on, and the traveller moves on
with an ending births a brand new start.....
brand new start
Track Name: Brave New World
Brave new world, am I good enough?
Am I strong enough to see through the smoke and the flames?
Shadows fall, I’m running towards the light
I’m running fast to find something I can hold true

Get beyond this line in life
the noise, the noise, the toys, the noise... the city falls
break the screen, a quiet scream
the twits and tweeks, is anyone saying anything at all
We’re just spinning our wheels in these tired circles
and we’re getting nowhere at all
when i know we’re all just shining stars
waiting to find some great great high or a moment to fall

Brave new world, am I good enough?
Am I strong enough to see through the smoke and the flames?
Shadows fall, I’m running towards the light
I’m running fast to find something I can hold true

The words of Ginsberg and Kerouac
hit the road there’s no turning back today
From these fall walls and patterns, I’ve got to break free
and risking it all is no tragedy
Clip the frames in this unending movie
of something I used to be
Tell my friends I’ll be gone for awhile
I’m off to find the pieces of a dream that I once believed

Brave new world, am you good enough?
Am you strong enough to hold on to dreamers like me?
Shadows fall, I’m running towards the light
I’m running fast to find somewhere I can be free

To find somewhere I can be free
Are you strong enough to hold on to dreamers like me
I am just holding on to somewhere I can be free
Are you strong enough to hold on to dreamers like me
