Ignore the storm
Just close your eyes and soon you will be sleeping
Just breathe deeply and soon you'll be asleep
Forget what your teenaged son did to your car.
Forget how at dinner you went way too far.
Your shame will keep
Just count to ten a few times then you'll sleep.

This album is super smooth and ends way too soon. The reverb used on the vocals is particularly perfect, matching the feel of plate reverbs used in the '70s. Well-written songs keep you coming back for more. Highly recommended. Noah Wilson
