about

Steve Hussey & Jake Eddy Washington, West Virginia

Originally a recording project for Steve's wedding, the partnership between singer/songwriter Steve Hussey and 17-year-old Jake Eddy blossomed into this 10 song offering.

Dark, playful and wistful by turns the album channels an element that is missing from much of modern music: innocence.

Track Name: Little Shove
Little shove will send me on my way again
It's been ten days since I've seen the sun
Spelled it out in a letter to a friend it's been
Seven weeks since I've been home

So write me a letter
Give me a call 'cuz
I don't remember me and you at all
But the damned old highway's just screaming out your name
And the morning rain comes like a waterfall

Twist and bend to try and mend it at the seams
It all fades somehow like a long lost dream
those rusty memories getting too hard to recall
I can't sit around expecting you to call

So write me a letter
Give me a sign send it
On a wire from your heart to mine
The radio just keeps on singing out your name
And the morning rain comes like a waterfall
That morning rain's just like a waterfall
Track Name: Into The Ether
Night falls on the river
The train's on time
Moon shimmers on the water
In a crooked line
The barge sings like a sailor
Drunk and off time
As I sit in the silence
It's the killing kind...yeah

She never seemed to notice
We were out of time
She never seemed to notice
it's a crime
So let's dance while the band plays
The last goodbye
Hold me tight now baby
'Cuz it's sure been nice

CHORUS
Yeah...the fault's all mine
So won't you
Drive me down to the county line
Yeah...it'll all fall in time if you'll just
Drive me down to the county line
To the county line

I thought for a moment that you...disappeared
Into the ether
gone clear
but ghosts never vanish they just reappear
like a movie on the fog of the years

CHORUS

I never wanted to be your jack of spades
Or punch drunk with a suicide king
Flushed out faded away an inside strait
All I wanted to do was sing

Yeah...

I thought for a moment that you disappeared
Into the ether...gone clear
Track Name: Chalk It Up
How the hell'd I end up here
Two cents short in a can of beer
Your beauty wants to see me through
But every time I look at you
It's love...
Love...
Love...
Love...

I wish that I had met you first
I got no way to quench this thirst
Walking blind through spiderwebs
Every time you grace my bed
It's love...
Love...
Love...
Love...

Signs scream stop then go
I can't find my way home
You know i can't hold out forever....no....forever

Calling out my darkest fears
Where the hell w go from here
'Cuz I can't tell you what to do
All I really want from you
Is love...
Love...
Love...
Love..

Chalk it up to the same old
and I don't want to talk about it
Chalk it up to the same old
and I don't want to talk about it
Track Name: Long List of Goodbyes
Caught you with my best friend in the bathroom
Now there's a sight no man should ever see
Used to be I couldn't wait for you to get home
Now I just can't wait to watch you leave

CHORUS
But that's all right that's OK
Didn't want to hold you any way
It'll be one less worry on my mind
There's been others before
That walked on out the door
So don't think you're special in my eyes
You're just the latest in a long list of goodbyes

Never thought I'd let you mislead me
I would never be the one to cry
The fact is you're already a memory
Even though you're standing right before my eyes

CHORUS

BRIDGE
Well there's:
Karen Tracy Annie Jamie Katie Amy Kimmy Sue Loretta Lou
And there's
Bobbi Heather Kara Missy Lori Joey Sara Mary Nell and Helen too
And there's
Theresa Lisa Kate Diane Donna Lexi Amber Sam Barbara and Ellen too
And of course there's YOU

CHORUS
Track Name: Master Your Mind
I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man of simple needs
I need food, I need shelter and love sweet love
But when it comes to what you want
You better speak up son
'Cuz the world can't read your mind and never will

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man was born to lead
And it's all according to God's plan
But sometimes don't you know
You've got to learn to let it go
'Cuz there's dark things in this world you can't control

CHORUS
So come on everybody
Won't you love somebody
Get on your knees and pray for salvation please
Just one little bit
You attract what you transmit
Master your mind and make it com to you
Good God

BRIDGE
You can only act from love or fear
It's been the same for a hundred thousand years
Empty your mind and find the way
get on the right frequency
And Make the world obey

I'm a man, I'm a man, I'm a man of simple needs
I need food, I need shelter and love sweet love
But when it comes to what you want
you better speak up son
'Cuz the world can't read your mind and never will.

CHORUS

Track Name: Looking for Love
Two by two they walk the line
Hand in hand smiles in place
Me well I'm alone again
In time I hope it will change and I'm
Hoping it's not here to stay
So if you're ever in town again
Well won't you drop a line my way

'Cuz I miss the times we had
And I know that it was so long ago
But now I hear you're living with another soul
Cross my fingers knock on wood
And pray that someday my time will come
Well man one thing's for certain
We're sure all looking for love

We all know
That it take its own sweet time
So I'll sit here and deal with my loneliness
And move it on down the line

So here's the moral of the story
Single, attached or otherwise
It doesn't matter if you want it or you got it
We're just all looking for love
Track Name: The Miller Girl
Have you seen the Miller girl
From the next hill over
At church she shines like the midday summer sun
Have you seen the Miller Girl
From the next hill over
I'm telling you right now she's the one

And the summer goes so slow
I just can't wait until September
This year we'll ride the very same bus to school
I can hear the bobwhite call
And I swear I hear him say
You're going to marry that girl someday

Have you seen the Miller girl
From the next hill over
Prettiest thing for forty miles around
Have you seen the Miller girl
From the next hill over
I'll love her till they put me in the ground

And the summer goes so slow
I just can't wait until September
This year we'll ride the very same bus to school
I can hear the bobwhite call
And I swear I heard him say
You're going to marry that girl someday
I'm going to marry that girl someday
Track Name: Better Day
Come on time's a wasting
There's still time to make it
Down to the river and catch the boat on time
I've got his funny feeling
Mouth dry mind a-reeling
the smell of you takes me out of my mind

And the summer wind is easy
the sun is right on time
and every word that hits the page just rhymes
strolling hand in hand with you in perfect common time
makes me smile
A better day
I've never known

Come on time's a wasting
There's still time to make it
down to the Smoot
and catch the show on time
I know it seems deceiving
Even more when I read it
I blink twice disbelieving you're mine

And the autumn wind is easy
the moon is right on time
And every word that hits the page just rhymes
Strolling down the path with you in perfect common time
makes me smile

Time's slipping away there's only
So much time in a day
I can define perfection when I'm with you
A better day
A better day
A better day
I've never known
Track Name: I Pick You
I was spinning in circles
And you came twirling beside me
A bolt straight out of the clear yonder blue
Thanks once for not giving up
And thanks twice I know you forgave me
Although I gave you no reason to

CHORUS
And I
Never was so alive
As the day
You looked up at me
Made wishes come true
Everything changed when you said
I pick you

Today I take you for mine
And I know you're taking me too
So be my bride
And I'll be your groom
Dig your toes in the sand
And hear the sound of the ocean
Let love wash all of your worries away

CHORUS

BRIDGE
I'm here for the good times
I'm here for the worst
I'm here for the joy
And I'm here for the hurt
I don't know much
but I know this much is true
Everything's better with you

And I was spinning in circles
And you came twirling beside me
A bolt straight out of the clear yonder blue
And I pick you
Track Name: Sweet
I woke abruptly from a dream
To find you sleeping next to me
The dream remained still lingered on
To another place in time
And that place is gone
Ghosts that haunt have gone away
Darkness falls replaced with day
The man I was is dead and gone
Rose from the ashes, filled with song

I found my home
Reborn like the winter gone
A lazy rain falls on my street
And it is sweet

So alive you rule my nights
and fill the day with circus lights
Free and counting every kiss
All my fears I find dismissed

I found my home
Reborn like the winter gone
A lazy rain falls on my street
And it is sweet

Love will never be denied
is patient, kind, and makes the tides
the darkest glass has cleared and shown
that now i know as i am known

I found my home
reborn like the winter gone
A lazy rain falls on my street
And it is sweet
