about

This is my first Official E.P.. That said, this has been years in the coming. Lots of dead songs, skeletons, and friends lost along the way. But here is the beginning of a topsy tervy journey known as double j's music. There is no straight lines, only circles on circles. I know this sounds really out there, but i work in circles, leaving things along the way only to pick them back up again on my round-a-bout way. enjoy, with care, take care, peace, i love you all, and here we go....

Track Name: Give it For Free
all that i make
is for you to take
and all that i make
is for your sake

i'll give all i got
though it's not a lot
it truly is
my best shot

i won't ask for much
just fill my cup
and when i sing
don't interrupt

as i have found something
you might have lost
it's a free ride
i've paid the cost

close your eyes
have a drink and see
what i give
i give it for free...
Track Name: Floor To Keys
Coming down again
I've gone and forgot where I live
And I can't find my keys
I'm running with the breeze again

Coming down again
I've gone and lost my best friend
And I can't find my keys
I'm down on my knees again

I know she'll forgive me
But I can't live with me
And me alone
And she knows

Coming down again
Gonna drive this car right off this bridge
But I can't find my keys
And I'm always talkin' make believe

I know they'll forgive me
But they can't live with me
When I'm falling
All the time

Coming down again
I've gone and lost all my friends
And now I can't find my keys
I'm hoping they'll let me back in

No I can't find my keys
And I'm hoping this ain't the end
Track Name: Poor Lonesome Cowboy
I ain't got no sweetheart
I ain't got no sweetheart
I ain't got no sweetheart
To be there for me

I'm a long ways from home
I'm a long ways from home
I'm a long ways from home
With a long ways to go

I ain't seen my brother
Since I grew out this beard

I ain't seen my mother
Since drowned in beer

I ain't seen my father
Since my checks failed to clear

And if it weren't for this mirror
I'd think no one else was here

I ain't got no sweetheart
I ain't got no sweetheart
I ain't got no sweetheart
To be there for me
To be there for me
Be there for me...
Track Name: More Than a Rose
She's more than a rose
She's too much to hold
She's more like a story
That's never been told

She slept through her days
Only came out at night
She's just like those questions
You never ask right

She might be a dream
Like a cloud of mist
In the back of your mind
She's someone you miss

And out on the streets
Where the shadows
They roam in the cold
And there's no one to meet
At home, so I go
Out to find
More than a rose

She's never far
She's never quite near
It's only a picture
That I keep right here

She speaks to me
Just like a ghost
Whispering to go
For more than a rose

And out on the streets
Where the shadows
They roam in the cold
And there's no one to meet
At home, so I go
Out to find
More than a rose
More than a rose
More than a rose
I guess I gotta go for
More than a rose
Track Name: Picture Me Now
I got stuck in a picture
Taken of me when I was a kid
A smiling face, winning a race
That I won, oh, I won

Now I'm looking in the mirror
And it keeps getting clearer
I'm losing you, there' not much to do
Except watch, just watch

As my whole life passes on
Filling time, filling songs
Filling up photos with faces I don't know
Anymore, anymore

And I won't be in that picture
The one where you're wearing white
Posing on the ocean, where new life begins
I'll be lost, I'll be gone
So, take your picture of me now
Track Name: I Still Miss Someone
At my door the leaves are falling
A cold wild wind Will come
Sweethearts walk by together
And I still miss someone

I go out on a party
And look for a little fun
But I find a darkened corner
'Cause I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she's sorry
For leavin' what we'd begun
There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

Oh, no I never got over those blues eyes
I see them every where
I miss those arms that held me
When all the love was there

I wonder if she's sorry
For leavin' what we'd begun
There's someone for me somewhere
And I still miss someone

and i still miss someone
