‘Heart Into Me’ Liner Notes

Here’s a story of love on the road. There’s something unique about the lyrics. Something I’m particularly proud of. Can you figure it out? I did leave you a clue after all…

And here’s a recording in front of an old GMC truck grille.

heart-into-me

An allegory of living. Travel together across the miles and watch the love unfold.

trade hopes and curiosity 
in truth and reciprocity
where loss would be atrocity
you’ve got the right velocity

love is luminosity
uncommon virtuosity
unending generosity
you yearn with your ferocity

you’ll get what you got coming
if you’ll only stop your running

Aside from all that, this song is really hard to define. There’s so much openness and adventure, much like love itself. Ride it out and see where love takes you!

Here’s a link to that video performance again.

‘Casa Get Down’ Liner Notes

A view of heaven – the great palace of eternal music – with a modern frame of reference. Continue reading below the graphic for more about specific lyrics and phrases.

casa-get-down

This song came together on its own during a time of soul-searching and longing for the hope of a bright tomorrow. But then I saw tomorrow’s night club with the holiest of holies spinning records for his fans.

Big house right outside of town
Reminiscent of Audio Adrenaline’s Big House, another song with a modern (for 1993) view of heaven Also a reference to just how close the realm of eternity is to ours.

Casa Get Down
A pretty cool name for a house of endless dancing, if I do say so myself.

The cover free
To enter costs nothing. Or everything. Or both.

I’ll put you on the way
I know where the ladder is. I can show how to enter.

Shake your troubles
Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.

Feel the beat so subtle
There’s always been an undercurrent of stillness and quiet in the voice of God.

Many mountains to move
The often told measure of faith, so freely expressed in Casa Get Down.

Like you’ve never aged
We’ll be healthy and whole, wanting for nothing.

Eyes are drawn to the open stage
Only the throne is lit

Daniel, who saw it, said God’s throne was ablaze with flames. In this viewing, the spotlight is on the turntable and the music is perfect.

King over a house of sin
Mission: To seek and to save the lost.
Purpose: A free gift given to those who’d never make it on their own.
Vision: Bright, majestic, a place to approach with boldness.
Values: Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

Everybody takes a bow
[A] Every knee shall bow

Every voice shouting out in every tongue
[B] Every tongue confess

The host starts shaking like a tower of power
Not just any host. The biggest baddest, raddest host of all. The lord of hosts.

Spin ‘Espírito Santo’
To spin a record is to play it. DJ lingo, for those not in the know. Espírito Santo is the chart-topping hit that never gets old.
