Everybody Wants A Piece Of Her HEart
 

The excitement of playing and recording together in the same room for the first time in well over a year can be heard and felt in the recording of this track. Until now, we seem to have temporarily forgotten how easy it is to connect as a band -- and once again, we're all naturally and thankfully locked back in musically.

I wanted this track to be pure and raw - it felt new - it was not overly-crafted - it was a moment in time - and I will always remember the satisfaction of playing together, despite any naturally-occurring flaws. The energy and personal connections seemed so rare and so important to me. I'm looking forward to doing more of this!

Now, about "Boat Girl"

She's intriguing, isn't she? ...and from a simpler time - a shot captured in 1955 on Cape Cod, unearthed by me by way of a long-lost Kodak "Kodaslide STEREO Viewer II" from an antique shop, which was sort of a high-tech gadget of the early 1950's. I lined my phone camera up with one of the viewfinder lenses to capture her here forever. I wish that you could view it in 3-D/"stereo" like I can do with this nifty back-lighted Kodak contraption -- it's magical. I'd love to somehow reunite this amazing photo collection with its originating family members -- and I can't help but wonder if Boat Girl is still with us.

Soft luck decisions                      

She’s got ‘em showing up in spades

Don’t want to scrap the mission but she’s got her pick of everybody in this place 

 

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Nobody gets a piece of her heart 

 

She’s got nothing but options                     

Hope springs for those without a clue

Hide the ammunition before she turns the turret back on you      

 

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Nobody gets a piece of her heart 

 

She’s undecided, but decidedly alone

I’m still inspired and I won’t give up until she takes me home

 

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Nobody gets a piece of her heart 

 

Thinking it’s all over but impatience kills a perfect chance

Holding out for one last try and a miracle from happenstance

 

She’s undecided, but decidedly alone

I’m still inspired and I won’t give up until she takes me home

 

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Everybody wants a piece of her heart

Nobody gets a piece of her heart
