about

LIke the character in Walter Mitty, this person lives inside his/her own head as opposed to the real world.

lyrics

Walter Mitty would be proud of me
For duplicating his own legacy
‘cause nothing’s ever said
it’s all stuck in my head
and I don’t know how to say just what I need

Don’t say nothing, ‘cause I fear the worst
But it’s ironic, saying nothing hurts
So I drift day to day
With not much to convey
‘cause I don’t have what it takes to stand and lead

But never fear ‘cause in my dreams
I live in a world that’s so serene
Where in my mind I am a star
A trailblazer going far
But back on earth I’m just a timid man

I try to live inside my dreams
But that kind of world’s not what it seems
In my mind I’ve done it all
But out here I’ve hit the wall
And back on earth I’m just a timid man

You might be thinking, yes, you may inquire
Why I don’t tell you what my heart desires
Something that I dread
Those thoughts in my head
May, after all, not amount to much for me
It might be worse if I don’t succeed

He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with “an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum” (Hiplanta). ... more
