about

Jesse Rivest Wellington, New Zealand

I was raised to move and shift - damn the availability of fast airplanes! But I'd have escaped via water ship, anyway. And it probably still would have sounded like this.

Track Name: The Romance of Kaslo
Smoky orange light distant flaming trees
Smoky orange light on the hazy breeze
Smoky orange light distant flaming trees
It's the breath of the BC sun

Music in the bay dancing in the sand
Music in the bay where the mountains stand
Music in the bay dancing in the sand
Under stars and a silhouette moon
Under stars and a silhouette moon

Crooked Cafe makes a great big sound
Crooked Cafe spread the word around
Crooked Cafe makes a great big sound
Yes I will return one day

Sleeping under stars in the man's back yard
Sleeping under stars isn't very hard
Sleeping under stars in the man's back yard
Hold on to the one you love
You better hold on to the one you love

Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress
Olive oil skin and my heart's a mess
Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress
Girl I'd like to be with you

On the side of the road not too far from town
On the side of the road want to turn around
On the side of the road and I'm all broke down
I'm leaving against my will
I have not yet had my fill
I'm leaving against my will
I have not yet had my fill

Olive oil skin and a birch bark dress
Olive oil skin and my heart's a mess
Track Name: Greyhound Through The Rockies
I'll miss these trees again
Before the mountains at the summer's end
Yellow freckles in the Earth's green skin
Change it frees us of our regrets and sins

The highway swirls in Earth kaleidoscope
The train tracks climb a most gentle slope
Cars are passing as a I set afoot
One after the other will I escape for good

Follow a stream until it turns to snow
Follow a dream that lets you down so slow
Climb a ridge up to the autumn sky
I pushed on how I really tried

And I tried, and I tried, oh I tried

On the bus moving down the road
To some places I said I'd go
I won't be back until I feel I'm done
Don't I know I'm the I'm the selfish one

And in review I will miss you
While I'm gone
But it won't be long

Yes it's true I will miss you
While I'm gone
But it won't be long

No it won't be long
No it won't be long
I will miss you while I'm gone
Track Name: My Ticket Home
She met me out at quiz night
We talked of here and home
Her chocolate truffle eyes could do me harm

She spoke to me in Hebrew
I thought of her in rhymes
And when we left we parted at the door
But oh I wanted more

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Memories flash by me now that she's my ticket home

She's stuck again on milkshakes
And those classic cruising cars
Her hair turns with her skirt when she floats by

I'm a tragic minimalist
Doesn't get me very far
I bake for her tartes aux poires Bourdaloue
Dans sa rue

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause
She's my ticket home

Hold on seasons dropping in so fast
I dreamed a house of perfect viewing glass

Now I call her from the west coast
Say the winters here are mild
But they don't have those windy city charms

She's a drifter with her theories
Her philosophies run wild
Now who could tame an ocean from its side
I think I'll take a dive

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
Her laughter rips the map out of my hands when she blows by

She's my ticket home
She's everything I've missed
I'll taste those dusty roads again 'cause
She's my ticket home

I'll sing my style of song again 'cause
She's my ticket home
Track Name: Down Again
I moped around this town looking for a spark
In spite of the sun I was in the dark
Loneliness and cowardice are two sad states of mind
Happiness could be now just leave the past behind

Oh I'm down again
I've picked up before

I bought a ticket for a bus ride out of town
I couldn't thumb a ride crawling on the ground
Everybody else seems to have their lives all figured out
While I follow a map of the sewers in a city of doubt

Oh I'm lost again
I've been found before
And I am a truth seeker
Begging at your door

And oh I'm old again
I've been young before
And I am a silhouette
Fading from your door

And I feel like a cigarette
Stomped out on the floor
And I am a shipwreck
Sunken off your shore

Sunken off your shore
Track Name: Take It or Leave It
They said you can stay
Only if you pay
Not just your money
We want your days
So take it or leave it

She said you should stay
Only if you want
These are different stars
They can be your stars
So take them or leave them

Well I can't sing my way out of this one
Stuck in my own divide
With my broken stride
Who will harmonize with me
It's been a lonely time just me
When will I realize just where I wanna be
So take it or leave it

Well there's no moon quite like a new moon

Well there's no moon quite like a new moon
Drawing out its encore
While stars silently roar
I've got a backstage pass
Behind the curtains we laugh
And if the rain drops fall will they miss me at all
So take it or leave it

She said you should stay
Only if you want
These are different stars
They can be your stars
So take them or leave them

Well I stayed
So take it or leave it
Well I stayed
