Beggar’s Earth Liner Notes

These songs are about impermanence and my struggle to understand it. Trying like mad to get the sands in the hourglass to flow the other way, the futile wrestling match that ensues, and eventually making peace with the passage of time. I hope this music conveys my hope and my optimism because at the heart of it, I’m nothing if not a dreamer.

I sat in Xanadu (my studio in Nashville) and created tracks that told the story I wanted to tell. Then I caught a plane to Los Angeles and booked time at Lucy’s Meat Market with the amazingly talented engineer and mixer, Pete Min. Michael Duffy laid down the beat with that ridiculous groove that he owns. Sebastian Steinberg brought his Voodoo magic to the basslines and made everything feel good.

Then I asked my friend, Omniflux if she would design the cover. She listened to the songs and said the music made her imagine a circle. She designed something that truly got the feeling across and she even incorporated my handwritten lyrics for Beggar’s Song. The title of the release “Beggar’s Earth” is also the handiwork of Omniflux.

Catch A Comet,
Jeremy

Track Name: Beggar's Song
Beggar’s Song

Solitary chair in an empty room
A shadow of someone gone too soon
I swear I can hear you talk to me
A whisper
An echo down a lonely corridor
A flickering image of what was before
I’m speaking to you
Are you listening?

Are you out there?
Can you hear my beggar’s song?
Can you hear my song?
Begging for a moment of a moment gone
Only one moment
Are you out there?
I’m sending a message across space and time
Are you out there?
I’m burning a candle for you in the night
Beggar’s song

We’re fools to think that we can drink
The cup of fate and still escape
Fleeting and fragile, these lives we lead
Still, I call for you
Are you speaking to me?
Because I’m listening

Are you out there?
Can you hear my beggar’s song?
Can you hear my song?
Begging for a moment of a moment gone
Only one moment
Are you out there?
I’m sending a message across space and time
Are you out there?
I’m burning a candle for you in the night
Beggar’s song
Track Name: Earth Is Turning
Earth Is Turning

You ask me if love is forever
Well, I don’t know
You ask: Can we stand where others fell down?
The future is out of our grasp
You know all we ever have is NOW
We don’t know which breath is the last we will gasp
But I can make this vow

Earth is turning and I’m here with you
Stars are burning and I’m here with you
Day is returning, the night ebbs away
And when the dawn comes,
When the dawn comes
I’ll be here when you greet the day

I’ll give all the life and the love that I have to give
I’ll hold nothing back from you in this life
As long as there’s breath in my lungs I will always sing your praises, girl
The love that we have will go on and be strong
In this changing world

Earth is turning and I’m here with you
Stars are burning and I’m here with you
Day is returning, the night ebbs away
And when the dawn comes,
When the dawn comes
I’ll be here when you greet the day
