I thought both of the last two tracks deserved a little more explanation. Homeless was written by Megan Devoy – she asked me to take a poem she had written and put music to it. Because the free-form nature didn’t really lend itself to a conventional piece, I pulled out one of my favorite tricks, Spoken Word. Yay. I love those.

Dream Delayed started out as a very different song – in fact, two very different songs. But it just wouldn’t be anything than what it is – apparently this was the time for this song, and it didn’t want to be kept down. So I let it out. I haven’t decided how I feel about it.

It has one line in it that I really love… ‘Our dream that got delayed’. Those of you who know my life history know exactly what events, and who, this is about. The rest of you will just have to wonder until I write my autobiography. (Heh. Like that will happen.)

    After all this time do you remember what the two songs were that Dream Delayed became? If it’s not obvious, I’ve been listening to it quite a bit lately. The lyrics do really feel inspired.
