about

Wanderlust (written 08/2002, recorded 10/2015) I was at my studio really late one night back in 2002, and just staring out the window at the stars and the full moon. All I wanted to do was hop in my old Triumph, put the top down, and drive. The way I used to. Instead I grabbed a guitar and wrote this song. (Guitar: 2000 Martin DM)

lyrics

I been wondering
Lookin out my window again
There’s nothing but moonshine
Pourin down tonight
I’m tryin to get some sleep
but I just can’t close my eyes

So I go out wandering
Let the moonlight soak right through my skin
A million stars above
and so much space in between
So I set my sails to the wind
And it’s a traveling junkies dream

Wanderlust is my blood
When the moon is shinning down above
Not one destination
Where I need to go
All I need right now is any
thousand mile road


This nighttime wandering takes me away from you
But I’ll be back before the sun comes shinning through


I been wondering
Lookin' out my window again
There’s nothing but moonshine
Pourin down tonight
I’m tryin to get some sleep
but I just can’t close my eyes

The process was always a bit manic, pressured, as if a large gorilla had stepped into my room, grabbed me by the lapels and said, "I will not let you sleep until you write this idea down." And so for years the gorilla and I danced madly thru the night.
