This one is really different for me. It went through a lot of changes – from something completely wacky to the more straight version we have here.
A few words about “Grass Stained Twilight” – After much deliberation we chose the self-publishing route which has been great but limited our options. Originally there was going to be a 5 song cd included with the book. Now, it will be available separately as a full length cd – available here soon!
Here’s the “Heart On My Sleeve (Same Old Suit)” song lyrics:
I was afraid this might happen – Not the suit I should’ve worn – If I had made the right selection – I could’ve pulled the sleeve over my heart – Instead I went and put on the coat – Even though I knew the arms really weren’t very long – Inside I’d found – the note I’d wrote – Not to wear this again ’cause the pants had fit wrong – Tried to stay away from humiliation – Instead I stayed away from everyone – I was afraid this might happen – Not the suit I should’ve worn – If I
had made the right selection – I could’ve pulled the sleeve over my
heart – It would have meant having to do all those things that I said there was no time to get done – It would have meant having to dance in shoes I knew I loved but had never tried on – But without the slightest hesitation – I went and wore that same old suit for everyone – They point and say that I should’ve kept it on me – But the pockets in these pants are much too deep – I was afraid this might happen – Never thought they all might leave – Turns out I made the wrong selection – When I wore my heart on my sleeve
