Story

Frank: "Were you expecting something soft and gentle?" Yes, from Luisa I was, but it was not to be. Written shortly before the start of her "blue period" I believe. My favorite Chris Aleo drum track. We needed to turn the hose on him after our first run through of this one. Get out your earplugs people, 'cuz folk-rock is here to stay!

Lyrics

(Tanno)
Were you expecting something soft & gentle? 
Were you expecting me to give away again? 
Yeah, you deem all my excursions mental 
Of course you take the cheap & easy win 
Win, win, you win Sure we"ll both climb the jagged peaks
But you"ll call yours yours 
And call mine weak 

Forgive my tracks and side-step ways 
But broad & wide are not the strokes that I intended to make 

Well I took a breath to cool the hot down 
But the heat it didn't want to go away 
And after letting it fuel the come 'round 
I decided just to give the hot its day 
Day, day, this day 

Sure I"ll fall down the sainted trail 
But those who know me best will anoint me well 
Forgive my tracks and side-step ways 
But broad & wide are not the strokes that I intended to make


Luisa: lead vocal, acoustic guitar, percussion
