  • 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

Heart’s Not in It
(©Kevin Gordon, Little Rain Music BMI & Gwil Owen, Turgid Tunes admin Bluewater BMI)


I've played this bar a hundred times

Same four walls, same old lines

The show goes on when they dim the lights
I
play my part, but my heart's not in it tonight



Play a couple of fast ones, then we take a break
Somebody buys a round for old times' sake

Guess she looks familiar, I try to be polite

But it's hard, ‘cause my heart's not in it tonight



Sometimes I get this feeling

All I'm doing is spinning my wheels

I just want to stop for a minute

Just until my heart's back in it



The crowd's all gone, but you're still here

What you want is all too clear

The line's so fine between wrong and right

We could step right over, but my heart's not in it tonight

{
Down to the Well
(©Kevin Gordon, Little Rain Music BMI & Colin Linden, Colin Linden Music, Warner Chappell SOCAN)


Mud-colored dogs guarding shotgun shacks

A red door on a green Cadillac

Hot wind blowing smoke through graveyard streets

A face I recognize looking right through me



Ain’t goin’ down to the well no more

Believe I’ve had my fill
I worked that ground til I done got sore

Ain’t goin’ back down to the well

You played that dive twenty some-odd years

With the faith and whiskey you killed your fear

I remember the night you broke down to the core

Threw that black Stratocaster through a plate-glass door



Ain’t goin’ down to the well no more

Believe I’ve had my fill
I worked that ground til I done got sore

Ain’t goin’ back down to the well



See that woman in the corner, brother, she knows

Every inch of my body, every mile of my soul

We used to shake ‘em on down til the blazin’ day

What’s she doin here tonight watching me that way



Ain’t goin’ down to the well no more

Believe I’ve had my fill
I worked that ground til I done got sore

Ain’t goin’ back down to the well
