  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "Nearly 30 years after his first album, Gordon should be better known, as should Christensen, who was a staple in the Los Angeles punk and jazz scenes before her extraordinary collaborations with Leonard Cohen, and then a solo career. But these things happen. Now comes a record that adroitly fuses Christensen’s exploratory vocals with Gordon’s vividly drawn emotional and physical landscapes. The result brings out the best in both of them, especially in the way Christensen unearths veins of gold that were hiding in plain sight..." - Amos Perrine, NO DEPRESSION

lyrics


Gatling Gun
(©Kevin Gordon, Little Rain Music BMI)


If I had a rocket ship and a Gatling gun

I’d fly all the way up to the sun

Shoot it full of holes til I put out the light 

Fall back to the ocean and call it a night 



Gonna call John Henry help build me a railroad 

Straight through the coal mines, pick up a big load 

Dig a hole to China, ride it on down 

Keep sinking low til I come out on higher ground



I still see her there 

How the river wind plays her hair 

Gold in fallen light 

Right by my side



I could take a razor to my blank stare 

Bleed out every memory of her in there 

Toss my eyes like dice into the sky 

But I’d come up empty, still asking why 



I still see her there 

How the river wind plays her hair

Gold in fallen light 

On the levee by my side 

Giving me her time 

The wild meadow of her mind 

The bloom of her soft kiss 

Why can’t it stay like this 

And nothing less? 



These days nothing stays the same 

But my tongue remembers the shape of her name 

Love is free and free to roam 

But I can’t quit no matter how far away she goes

I still see her there 

How the river wind plays her hair

Gold in fallen light 

On the levee by my side 

Giving me her time 

The wild meadow of her mind 

The bloom of her soft kiss 

Why can’t it stay like this 

And nothing less?
