about

This is a special song to me. Most of it came to me in a flash, and I just wrote it down. I remember being in the subway in Chicago, and in my head I heard Rod Stewart's voice singing, "Been going through some changes... It's been a long, long time..."
I hope we captured in this recording some of the magic I felt when this one came to me.

A different version of this song appeared on the Jordan album Epiphany, under its original title, "That Which I Should Have Done I Did Not Do"--that title was taken from a painting by Ivan Albright (the painting is sort of creepy and affecting: www.artic.edu/aic/collections/artwork/83905).

Dedicated to The Warden, who has given me so much music, magic, love, and good vibes over these many years.

lyrics

I was another man when you were mine
I recall it like a dream now
Like another life

And it’s the time of my life
I’m growing older
And as the seasons pass me by
I’m growing colder

Been going through some changes
It’s been a long, long time
And now missing you is all that I can do
All my life

I’ve got all your pictures
In a box beneath my bed
And I take them out from time to time
And I tell them all the things I should have said

Now that I know that you’re the only
I’ll try to deny that I’m still lonely

Been going through some changes
It’s been a long, long time
And now missing you is all that I can do
All my life

I’m going out tonight, and I’m going to find you
And when I do, I will remind you

That it’s the time of our lives
We’re growing older
And as the seasons pass us by
We’re growing colder

Been going through some changes
It’s been a long, long time
And now missing you is all that I can do
All my life
