Dear Rabbit Colorado

"They're Not Like You...the charm of an off-kilter, '50s sci-fi movie soundtrack in glorious rock 'n' roll. Think Roky Erickson and the B-52s with some good ole American grit.." - B. Simm, BeatRoute, Calgary, AB

Track Name: I Was Too Shy
It took some time to find the time
I do my things my own way
Track Name: Took Some Time
It took some time to know I was somebody
For a great while, I would claim to be nobody
I was so shy, thinking I was inferior
I was too shy, to express one day deliver

When I was a young kid
I heard a friend tell another,
“Even Rence is cooler than you”
He seemed unaware, so unaware
Of the damage that it did, the damage that it did

It took some time to find the time
I do my things my own way
Track Name: When I Get to the Next Town I Don't Know if You Will Write Me a Letter
Oh, this world is a big place
I don’t know if I’ll see you again
Maybe you will be my best friend
Maybe this is where it all will end

But would you right now just hold my hand?
Would you right now just hold my hand?

I don’t know if I will be your man
But tonight right now will you hold my hand?

Tomorrow is a new day, maybe it will be better
When I get to the next town, I don’t know if you’ll write me a letter
Tomorrow is a new day, maybe it will be better
When I cross into the next state, I don’t know if you’ll write me a letter
Track Name: Hawthorne Bridge
Sometimes I still think of you
Sometimes I still think of you
Sometimes I still think of you
Sometimes, sometimes

I remember
The night you held my hand so tight
Walking together
Crossing together the Hawthorne Bridge
Crossing together the Hawthorne Bridge
Together, together

I remember
A most glorious morning
You took me to the harbor
We sat and held each other
It was probably our favorite sunrise
As we gazed upon the Brooklyn Bridge
As we gazed upon the Brooklyn Bridge
Together

Fragments of the note you wrote last night
Make the words up ‘til we get it right
Fragments of the note you wrote last night
I like winters, you prefer July

I still think of you from time to time
I still
I still think of you from time to time
I still
Track Name: Nice Doggy, I'll Listen to You
Survey dusty, cloudy plains
Just like the ghost of yesterday
When you follow me, nice doggy, I’ll listen to you
Nice doggy, you’re the only one I’ll keep on listening to

She told me to never ghost her
Two weeks later she ghosted me
But when you follow me, nice doggy, I’ll listen to you
You’re the only one I’ll keep on listening to

Oh, this work still scatters my desk
Just like it did yesterday
When I get called with client requests
I know I’d be a much better to hear that they say

But when you follow me, nice doggy, I’ll listen to you
Even when you yelp, howl, and whine, I’ll keep on listening to you
No matter what they say, I’m gonna keep on listening to you
Nice doggy, you’re the only one I’ll keep on listening to

When you come around, maybe I will be there
Track Name: Oh! How I Love Dogs Like That
I saw a big white dog cross the road just the other day
She was too far away, I could not stay
I kept wondering if she would be okay
I kept wondering if she should be okay

Oh! How I love dogs like that
And how some dogs like that love me
I know their hearts are right
They know my heart is right

I thought of that white dog in recent days
I wish that I had time for her to stop and explain
I do not know if she’s aware of the modern ways of humankind
Humans are not aware that dogs like her need to take their time

Doggies like that white dog are the dogs I keep thinking about
I teared up thinking of them that day as I drove on south

I know their hearts are right
They know my heart is right
Oh! How I love dogs like that
And how some dogs like that love me
Track Name: Sufferin'
Oh, the years are catching up, I’m sufferin’
Went to the local pub, I did not find you
Track Name: Loneliness
I thought one night I would finally find in your tender kiss
But the only drink I’ve ever known is loneliness
Track Name: Late
We always write the best melodies late, late at night
But by the next day, we always forget

Just the other day, just the other day, just the other day
I thought I had a song in my head
I forgot to write it down
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Tried to make up some chords, tried to make up some chords
They did not fit with the words
As you know, as you know, as you know
It won’t give
When a song’s not legit, it’s not legit, it’s not legit
It’s not legit
What do you do, what do you do, what do you do,
When you want to quit?

We always write the best melodies late, late at night
But by the next day, we always forget
Track Name: Losing
Losing sleep
Losing my voice
Losing my thoughts
I’m losing, I’m losing, I’m losing

It got so hot
That it got so cold
From losing, losing, losing, I’m losing

I feel so wired
From being tired
Of losing, losing, losing, I’m losing

Lost my sleep
Losing my breeze
I’m losing, I’m losing, I’m losing

I couldn’t fake
No longer could I take
I’m losing, I’m losing, I’m losing

Maybe if I try to sleep
Forgetting how I keep
On losing, losing, I’m losing

Maybe for one song
It will become two songs
Even though, even though, even though
I’m losing, I’m losing, I’m losing, I’m losing

I lost my voice
I lost my sight
I lost everything
Track Name: If You're Shy
If you’re shy, just write a song
And someday she will come along

It wasn’t always easy for me
I always doubted what I could be
It wasn’t always for me
But once I dug in I was free

And if you’re shy, just write a song
And someday she will come along

I remember how the kids used to laugh at me
They said I wouldn’t make it, they said I wouldn’t make it
And that is when I made quite a fool of me
I thought I couldn’t take it, I thought I couldn’t take it

But if you’re shy, just write a song
And someday she will come along
Track Name: You Never Got There (bonus track)
Was I the one there laughing at your crummy little joke?
Do you think that you’re all that funny, think you’re so funny?
Did you see my little smile?
Did it cheer you for a while?

Well, you got me good there for a minute
Got me good

There’s not many walking through my door
So they don’t really know, they don’t really know
You think you’ve got it so good
You think I’ve got it so good

Am I playing you for a fool?

I don’t know what I’m singing right now ‘cause I’ve gotta make it sometimes
Gotta make it up sometimes when I got so down

You see me all around, you think I’m not so down
But you’ve never seen my frown, you never got there
You never really got there, you never got there
