SLEEVE



'Sleeve' is an album highlight. -- Aaron Kupferberg, Power Popaholic

'Sleeve' is a stand out track. It "pulls out all the stops. The arrangement shifts between quiet, contemplative verses and swing-for-the-fences choruses. The orchestration that takes prominence for the track’s second half is superb, with cellos and brass engaging in dialogue with keening lead guitar. It’s a breathtaking manner in which to wrap up a consistently well-crafted album." -- Bill Kopp, Musoscribe, contributing editor at Goldmine: The Collectors Record and CD Marketplace, and Jazz & Prog Editor at BLURT magazine.

'Sleeve' is "a solo Mccartney era-inspired stunner." -- Rock Is The New Roll

Lyrics

I wear the things I love upon this sleeve
All the things I've learned
All that I believe

The faces and the names are always near
Every song I've sung
The tales that led me here

If you don't see your name, don't be concerned
I promise it's there, deeply burned 
Complete and constant in the heart that I wear
The one that lies so bare 
On this sleeve

These tapestries are worn, the tricks of time
I remember when they were so new
With no reason and no rhyme

If some seen frayed or torn, they still exist
Always everlasting
And forever missed

Embroidered in this fabric, buried in the thread
So many things revealed, said and unsaid
A swirl of images, bright fragments of the whole
Sweet segments of my soul 
On this sleeve

Your name will always be there
Deep in the heart that I wear
the one that lies so bare
On this sleeve
On this sleeve
