about

this is one of the newer tunes and the only one i’ve ever written that i think i should play with a capo. the lyrics came to me all at once on a bus in hamilton, ontario -as all the great ones do!

lyrics

when i was a mindreader,
i always knew what you meant.
i didn’t have to play follow the leader;
i knew the way things went.
when i was a fortune teller,
preparing for the apocalypse,
my books were all bestsellers.
i could have predicted this.

it’s coming soon to a theatre near you.
all those things you thought were true.

when i was a sailor,
my heart was restless and free.
i sailed from shore to shore
and left the past behind me.
when i was a cowboy,
i got onto my favourite horse.
i searched the Wild West
looking for you of course.

it's coming soon to a theatre near you.
all those things you thought were true.

there's no such thing as right.
there's no such thing as wrong.
there is only where we belong.
