Can't Look Her In The Eye

Get Flash to see this player.

Another song from our double CD, Pangaea. The lyrics for this song came from those five terrifying minutes in the doctor's exam room, waiting with my wife to find out the results of her CAT scan. The headaches she was getting were becoming crippling, and while I had shoved all that worry into a tightly sealed box, it came roaring out with a vengeance at the end. "TUMOR" was all I could think. I held her hand, but couldn't make eye contact with her. As it happens, it was garden variety migraines, easily treated with pharmaceuticals. But for some reason, I felt a need to turn this into a song.

Vocals: Dave Millard
Drums: James Moore
Keyboards: John Aldrich
Music/lyrics/guitars/bass/mix: Jay Loeper

Thanks for listening.


[EDIT: Thank you again for the warm welcome, as our primary camp is at iComp, and we're pretty much an unknown entity here at MJ. I've enabled the download feature on this tune as a token of my appreciation.]
