  • Lyrics: Daylight starts to chase away the night. And I know that we might not have much time. Let’s jump in the van with nothing much to do and see what we can find. The sticky summer evening is alive. The cold suburban silence feels alright. Disappearing tail lights light our path but we won’t follow them tonight. When you turn your eyes on me, there’s nowhere else I wanna be. And, If we can put it off another day, baby, you can chase my suffering away. ‘Cause for now, I’m just a hungry silhouette, not quite ready for what hasn’t happened yet. We’re leaving the reformers in the church. And all our closest friends are in the lurch. We’ve over-stayed our welcome, but to hell with them their piety’s absurd. When I put my hands upon your face, our little lives don’t mean a thing. And, if we can put it off another day, baby, you can chase my suffering away. ‘Cause for now, I’m just a hungry silhouette, not quite ready for what hasn’t happened yet. I know we’re running out of luck. Won’t be long now before we’re stuck. We both know what we gotta do. Will it be me? Maybe you? When you turn your sleepy eyes on me, there’s no one else I wanna be. And, if we can put it off another day, baby, you can chase my suffering away. ‘Cause for now, I’m just a hungry silhouette, not quite ready for what hasn’t happened yet.

Upon the release of his 2009 debut Postscript, critics clearly agreed, comparing its jolts of gritty, melodic Americana to the likes of Pete Yorn, Michael Penn, and Elvis Costello.
