Amy (Miss 17)

A mysterious visitor appears before me
and talks about the effect I have on her
And I can see it in her picture: she's dangerous
she could be the death of me
I try not to think what I want
and stay safely away from her gaze
in the maze of life

-chorus-
But I can't see past
those tempting eyes
Do you think you can handle the job that you've asked for
Miss seventeen?
And I should go now and leave you here
without me turning your life upside down
Miss seventeen

So what do I do?
I have to behave myself (but why)
I've got this feeling like I'm sinking
Yet flying too, but around in circles
From up here I can see the conclusion
so clear in my head

But I can't see past
those tempting eyes
Do you think you're up for the job that you've asked for
Miss seventeen?
And I should go now and leave you here
without me turning your thoughts inside out
Miss seventeen

I don't know much about you
early in the spring

I don't know much about me
patient as I am!
I don't know much about you
So take my open hand!

I can't say what will happen
predictive as I am

[chorus]

Liner Notes

Thank you: My friends and family. Without you I could not keep going. In no particular order: Mom, Don, Rachel, Jim, Elliot, Penny, Sherry, Meredith, Smokey, Melisa, Carol, Jenna, Cat, Mon, Heather, Amy, Stephanie, and Denny, Chuk, Jack, and Mojo (Bodega).  May those I may have forgotten please forgive me.

This is my third self-produced project, and I appreciate the support of everyone who has taken the time to take a second look at something that may not be traditional entertainment.

Recorded at 2312 N. Blvd (My apartment) between September, 2001, and July, 2002. I use Rhode and Shure mics, De Armond electric, Yamaha, and Alvarez acoustic guitars, Ovation bass, Yamaha keyboard, Behringer mixing console, Line6 POD direct boxes for guitar and bass, Cry Baby wah pedal.

Photography by Melisa Dettloff. I wrote, produced, performed, recorded, edited, mixed, and mastered all of these songs, created the cover/package artwork, and additional photography.
