about

This album is a return to my roots. Just picking & singing like my first album "Songs From The Sink," recorded on a 4-track. But this was recorded on 1" tape, so it's more hi-fi per-say. DIg!

about

Shawn Irwin Austin, Texas

Hello, I'm a singer/songwriter from the Big Timber. My music is my therapy, or more like turning piss into lemonade. My lyrics read like a secret diary exposed by a scorn lover. Tainted love aside, there are other tales of truckers, ghosts, and a search for a calm place to ride out the storm. I may be strange, but I think that's what makes me unique. Listen and judge for yourself. ... more

Track Name: Lost at Sea
I've been a drift for too many years
All the markers have now disappeared
There's nothing but the sea and sky
But the wind whispers I'll see a sign
I use to make waves, now I make haste
Where I go now, the sea says there's no telling
Time use to be a good friend of mine
Now that friend won't give me the time
I'm in desperate need for a port of call
But the wind swears I'm not alone
I use to make waves, now I make haste
Where I go now, the sea says there's no telling
Track Name: Carve Your Road
All the stars get all caught up in the light
That is why I shun the limelight
I'd prefer the dark side of the road
A road that you'll never know
A road that you'll never know
So I'll sing my songs and slip outta sight
And have a splash of scotch on ice
Till the morning pulls me back out on the road
A road that you'll never know
A road that you'll never know
Track Name: Lovers Still
All of this time my dear, you've been praying praying
But like Christ my dear, there's no saving saving
So will you lie my dear, with this stranger stranger
Maybe in time my dear, you'll become lovers lovers
Time is a cruel mistress, that keeps taking taking
You no longer recognize, your own face face
So will you lie my dear, with this stranger stranger
Maybe this time my dear, we'll again become lovers lovers
Come into me my love, she moans softly
Come into me my love, she moans softly
Come into me my love, she moans softly
Track Name: Traffic Stop
Hey boy, let me see your hands
You got nothing to hide you got nothing to fear from my hand
This happens, more than you know
Your rolling the dice when your rolling outside the ghetto
So hey boy, ain't gonna say it again
Put your hands on the wheel or I'll claim self-defence
What would happen, If our rolls where reversed
Then the shots rang out just like the times before
You say traffic stop, I say road block
You say self-defence, I say what evidence
You put him in the ground, to keep him from talking out
You shrug and say, their born to die that way
There's a time and a place, for justice
And that time and place, is now
There's a time and a place, for justice
And that time and place, is now
There's a time and a place, for justice
And that time and place, is now
