about

This track is from my forthcoming album, The Animal Album, which contains music from my multi-media show, The Animal Show. I wrote the show while in residence at Tamerlaine Farm Animal Sanctuary in Montague, NJ. The show is mostly about animals at that beautiful place, but this song in particular is about my dog, Corky. She was my friend when I was an adolescent, a gay kid feeling lonely and scared about where I would fit in 1980's Houston, TX. I still love her so much, and she saw me through such a difficult time. This is for you, Corky, wherever you are!

lyrics

Yes, it was a long time
Yes, it was a dream
The kind you find inside your world
Nestled in-between

The fear and hesitation
Suspicion and distrust
Growing out of boyhood
Awakening to lust

It's so hard to find my way home again
I don't want to find my way home again

Love it is decisive
But, love it is no cure
Yours it was a dressing
A cloudburst good and pure

Sometimes I am not so kind
Sometimes I'm a bore
And I'm not one for open
At least not anymore

It's so hard to find my way home again
I don't want to find my way home again
Unless I go with you
