lyrics

Take me to a wizard who’s precise with his scissors, cut me open and tell me if It’s tin or is it tissue, is it why that I miss you, is a wicked witch cursing me?

Always in the back, and always bustling
Thoughts pelt me like hail.
Climb up to the top of all those worries and look at life, oh well, that’s the way that it is.

Take me to a wizard who has infinite wisdom, fortitude and bravery. Is there a yellow belly in me just a coward and skinny and afraid of dying?

Always in the back, and always bustling
Thoughts pelt me like hail.
Climb up to the top of all those worries and look at life, oh well, that’s the way that it is.

Take me to a wizard who has delicate fingers, look deep down inside my brain. Is it a tangled mess of ropes; my dreams, thoughts, hopes, sparks firing from synapses?

Always in the back, and always bustling
Thoughts pelt me like hail.
Climb up to the top of all those worries and look at life, oh well, that’s the way that it is.

about

Paul Luc Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Tried my hand in the nine-to-five world but left to go my own way. The independent spirit is not dead and I'm inspired by restless people who choose to live, not just exist. Pittsburgh is where my heart is.

As a kid, I absorbed sounds from my parents record collection: The Band, Neil Young, CSN, John Lennon...which led me to Van Zandt, Dylan, Prine...all the good stuff.
