about

Gang - As we near fifty members (only 6 to go!) let's make things a little more special, shall we? Starting tonight, the fortnightly singles will be available to members a few days before the general public! Of course, as members, you'll be able to download or stream them whenever you wish, it's already included in your membership! Also, I started a new secret FaceBook group for Fan Club members only. If you haven't been invited in yet just send me a message letting me know your FaceBook name and I'll invite you to join :-)
-Cheers, Lach

Track Name: A Quiet Distance (Live)
A Quiet Distance by Lach

My dad yells at newspapers
Ranting about the Knicks and Nixon
I complain about poets
who choke me with correctness
Everyone’s pointing fingers
But I'd rather be finger-painting
Getting messy colors dripping on my hands

Home for the holidays
and my friends are getting famous
I try on emotions
like I try on clothes from storage
Nothing seems to fit
I'm not angry, sad or jealous
Confused I will admit
I'm like a song without a chorus

And the women here I know
talk like sisters over coffee
"How was San Francisco?" and "Are you really happy?"
They say, " I fell in love while you were gone
but just last week he left me,
So, I can't handle romance
can we just go to a movie."

I'm on a new road
but I had to come home to find it
Everything looks smaller when
you try to hide behind it
Get real close up and
you can't make out the picture
But from a quiet distance
everything seems so much clearer

So, now my horse is saddled
and I'm gonna ride triumphant
Away from the battles
the circus and the convent
A -yippie -aye- oh come on and sing along
and I'll make the ending chorus of the song
a -yippie -aye -ee -oo- a- yippie -aye- kye-yay!

I'd rather be fingerpainting
Confused I will admit
I can't handle romance
But from a quiet distance
everything seems so much clearer
A -yippie -aye- oh come on and sing along
and I'll make the ending chorus of the song
a -yippie -aye -ee -oo- a- yippie -aye- kye-yay!
Track Name: Away-ee-oh!
Away-ee-oh!

I saw a UFO
I saw a UFO
Outside my window
Right outside my window
And it said, “Do you wanna, wanna, go, away-eeoh!”

Like a movie
Like a Romero movie
My feet got wet
Standing in the grass
When it asked, “ Do yo you wanna, wanna, go, away-eeoh!”
