Know Again 04:28
When the darkness comes And the birds forget to sing I just close my eyes & I see You again And I know that I won’t Be alone again When the snowflakes fall And the water's frozen time I Just close my eyes and you're by my side And I know that I won’t Be cold again When the candle's burned down to the quick And the shadows fade away I Just close my eyes and and then I know Everything's okay Then the morning comes The birds in full refrain Open up my eyes and say goodbye again And I know that I won’t Won't say No again When the candle's burned down to the quick And the shadows fade away I just close my eyes and and then I know Everything's okay Everything will be okay I sing la-la-la-la la-la-la-la I sing la-la-la-la la-la-la-la

Open Arms 04:41
These open arms, they wanna hold you When the sun comes up ‘til the day is through These open arms, they wanna hold you When they’re making morning coffee, filling up the cup When they’re picking up the paper, wish it’s you they’re lifting up, they wanna hold you These open arms, they wanna hold you These tired eyes, they wanna see you When they open up, when I close them too These tired eyes, they wanna see you When they’re reading that there paper, full of misery Looking at the headlines it’s you they wanna see, they wanna see you These tired eyes, they wanna see you. These two left feet, they wanna dance with you When the music’s loud, when it’s quiet too These two left feet, they wanna dance with you Whoa Ohhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhh This old spare tire, wants to ride with you When the goings smooth, when we’re broken down too This old spare tire wants to ride with you Whoa Ohhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhh These open arms These tired eyes These two left feet This ol spare tire Whoa Ohhhhhhh ohhhhhhhhh wanna be with you.

I'll take the wheel You take the gears We’ll Drive ‘round For the rest of our years We’ll point it Westward Leave the past, leave the past in the mirrors We’ll rob a State bank Live on the run Partners in crime The wanted ones Crossing canyons Chasing down, chasing down the setting sun She’d say… Sorry is a board game We ain't got time to play Roll the dice it’s Trouble Take a risk with me today Take a Chance and pass go We can ride the rails far away Sorry is a board game That we ain't got time to play Wanna be your last dance Die in your arms Holding close till morning Ignore the alarms Pull down the curtains We're hiding from, we’re hiding from the rising sun I'll take the wheel You take the gears We’ll Drive ‘round For the rest of our years Point it westward Leave the past, leave the past in the mirrors She’d say… Sorry is a board game We ain't got time to play Roll the dice it’s Trouble Take a risk with me today Take a Chance and pass go We can ride the rails far away Sorry is a board game That we ain't got time to play

You may wonder why I sit here on this barstool and Drink Pouring out my gin soaked soul to the bartender Shrink Tell him how I’m floatin’ how I aint’ never gonna Sink, well Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Comes sooner than you think You may wonder why I sit here on this barstool and Drink Pouring out my gin soaked soul to the bartender Shrink Tell him how true love never fades as long as you never blink, well Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Comes sooner than you think And we beg And we borrow And we pray that Sometimes Never Ain’t tomorrow You may wonder why I sit here on this barstool and Drink Well... Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Sometimes Never Comes sooner than you think

I used to walk the graveyard Everyday to school Passed the stone of Edward Gibbs Died in 1942 Wall to wall green carpet A blue ceiling from door to door Wondered ‘bout the hopes and dreams He left there on that shore Was she waiting for him? Were there letters with perfume? Did she leave these flowers? That are wilting on his tomb? He didn't answer He wouldn't say He didn’t feel like talkin’ that day He couldn't hear me Or He didn't care I’m Just another ghost ….. standin’ there Were you frightened Were you crying Were you thinking about her when you were dying Were you begging Were you pleading Was she there in your heart when it stopped beating Or were you laughing And smiling Safe in her arms while you were dying He didn't answer He wouldn't say He didn’t feel like talkin’ that day He couldn't hear me Or He didn't care I’m Just another ghost ….. standin’ there I used to walk the graveyard Everyday to school Passed the stone of Edward Gibbs He Died in 1942

Central Time 05:28
Well my daddy was a preachin’ man He tried to feed me with the word But I was busy making other plans Nice guys finish last is what I heard So I tried and I tried Not to wrong,I tried to right Tried to turn the other cheek Tried not to fight But I’m sorry to say I can’t do it today I’m leaving Saturday Night I got Caffeine, I got Nicotine I got 400 miles I got a half tank of gasoline I’m rolling out of Central Time Hope I reach the borderline Well My momma worked in the factory She never got no college degree But she taught me more than any old professor She said Son, the best things in life are free So I tried and I tried Tried to give, not receive The benefit of the doubt I tried to believe But I’m sorry to say, That it didn’t pay And I’m leaving Saturday Night The best things in life a free You can try but you can’t take them from me The best things in life are free! Well my daddy was a preachin’ man He tried to feed me with the word But I was busy making other plans Nice guys finish last is what I heard So I tried and I tried Not to wrong,I tried to right Tried to turn the other cheek Tried not to fight But I’m sorry to say I can’t do it today I’m leaving Saturday Night I got Caffeine, I got Nicotine I got 400 miles I got a half tank of gasoline I’m rolling out of Central Time Hope I reach the borderline

Zumwalt Station The day you left in polished boots with a green backpack Zumwalt Station Heading West with all them boys, to South Texas Waitin’ on the Amtrak Waitin’ on a train Take you back Zumwalt Station Hiding in a fox’s hole, afraid to nap Zumwalt Station You’ve been fighting for a dotted line on a General’s map Waitin’ on the Amtrak Waitin’ on a train To Bring you back Didn’t know what we’re fighting for Didn’t know who to blame Waiting on a note from home To know our name Zumwalt Station The day we won, the day we lost, Nixon’s war Zumwalt Station Waiting for a pinewood box and a purple George Waitin’ on the Amtrak Waitin’ on a train To Bring him back Zumwalt Station Everyday rain or shine, by the torn out track Zumwalt Station You’ve been livin’ on coffee cold and Daniels Jack Waitin’ on the Amtrak Waitin’ on a train To Bring you back Didn’t know what you’re dying for We didn’t know who to blame Waiting on a telegram To say your name Zumwalt Station Zumwalt Station Everyday rain or shine Hoping you’d come back

Old Mill 04:33
Meet me, at the Old Mill It’ll be our dance floor tonight Full moon disco ball Locomotive spotlight We can dance all night Until the mornin’ light Just hold me tight Until the moment’s right Then tell me Tell me that you love me Even if it ain’t true Cuz I, I wanna tell you That I’ve always loved you Meet me at the station We’ll fly this galaxy tonight Love drugged copilots We’re on this cosmic flight And Elvis Presley plays On those AM Waves Roy Orbison cries the whole way For you to tell me Tell me that you love me Even if it ain’t true Cuz I, I wanna tell you That I’ve always Loved You Meet me at the Old Mill It'll be our dance floor tonight

Life is for Leanin’ Money’s for burnin’ Do all my shoppin’ at the curb No time to wallow Mouthwash you can swallow A 9 to 5 is for the birds Don’t need much to live like me O.P.Cs and cheap whiskey Couple bucks to play the lottery That’s what old Reliable Mike taught me Drives around in a MediaCON Van Picking up all the bottles and cans Gonna build himself a time machine Set it for a future date But he’ll probably still be late Or hung up somewhere in between Gonna save the human race Rocket ships to outer space Meanwhile he’s just pickin’ up this place That’s what what ol’ Reliable Mike taught me Pickin’ and grinnin’ Hard Work is winnin’ Everyday is Christmas day when you’re free Dogma is dogshit Don’t step in none of it No weapons on the property Life is for Leanin’ Money’s for burnin’ Do all my shoppin’ at the curb No time to wallow Mouthwash you can swallow A 9 to 5 is for the birds Don’t need much to live like me O.P.Cs and cheap whiskey Couple bucks to play the lottery That’s what old Reliable Mike taught me That’s what old Reliable Mike taught me That’s what old Reliable Mike taught me

about

Released in October 2020 at the Maximum Ames Music (Online) Festival, LL❤️VELANDD is the first album from Ames, Iowa based Deedles & Company. Like a train rolling down the line, sometimes full and sometimes empty, LL❤️VELANDD weaves a story of love lost, found, lost, and found.

LL❤️VELANDD was recorded and mixed at the Bel Air Brown Carpet Lounge and The SpaceBar on a vintage BOSS BR-1180 8-Track Digital Recorder given to me by my shrink, Dr. Dodge, during the COVID-19 Global Pandemic of 2020. The recorder was partially full of various recordings made by Dr. Dodge during the previous decade but had enough room left on the ancient hard drive for me to create my first album over a long and difficult self-isolation.
