about

"Warm My Soul" stands a bit apart from the rest of the record because it’s the one track I didn’t record in New York with Don Godwin. The band has an arrangement of the tune now, but before the band ever played I recorded this as an experiment with my good friend Michael Bailey at his home studio in Denver, CO. Michael is a really brilliant musician, saxophone player turned record producer. We met playing little league baseball when we were 11, and grew up playing jazz together. Michael has always been a few years ahead of me in terms of what to listen to. He has impeccable taste, and has been a major inspiration over the years.

lyrics

Let the sun warm the sky, and let the sky warm the air, and let air warm the earth, and let the earth warm my body,

Let my body warm my mind, let my mind warm my spirit, let my spirit warm my soul, warm my soul, warm my soul.

There's a song that we sang, from the mountains together, but on account of weather, we couldn't sing it forever,

And all the good times we had, when there was nothing to it, and the ways that we blew it, and the ways that we got through it,

And I want you to be, who you are when you're dreaming, who you are when you're drinking, but without all the drinking,

You're so bottled, you're so scared, and you're waiting for something, so that you can be happy, but you're waiting for nothing,

A train riding off of the tracks. A treasure slipped right through the cracks. I'm cold and I still want you.

So let the sun warm the sky, and let the sky warm the air, and let the air warm the earth, and let the earth warm my body,

Let my body warm my mind, let my mind warm my spirit, let my spirit warm my soul, warm my soul, warm my soul.
