Biography

After a successful period supporting the eclectic pop album “Spin,” Randy Craig has relocated to Portland, OR while he records the follow-up. This time, raising the bar will be difficult. But according to him, he is ready. "Spin is an album i am very proud of. But just like anyone else, my taste has evolved since I recorded it. It's time for a different aesthetic." While Randy doesn't intend to reinvent himself completely, there are no barriers on this one and the palette is very large. Look for a new release in 2007. In the meantime, Randy will be playing his insane one-man loop show throughout Portland this summer.

Lyrics

Resolve

Written By: Randy Craig copyright 2004 handymusic

i came home to a dream
of climbing cliffs and trees
i smell a lilac breeze
in an old school memory
But now I’m forced to walk
to the sounds of a ticking clock
i know there’s more for me
after i say sorry

in this room i call my home
i collect all the sins that i have sewn
unstitch the seam and let them go
a scar is there for you to know
but the pain will hurt away

she waits for him to leave
then dials a number
her husbands so naïve
to think she would love no other
but one day she could not bear
the guilt of her own betrayal
confessions of despair
were not enough to save her

in this room i call my home
i collect all the sins that i have sewn
unstitch the seam and let them go
a scar is there for you to know
but the pain will hurt away

Questions

Written By: Randy Craig

the room is dark we lay wide awake
i look at you i can’t see your face
this tension’s been a timely pursuit
can you tell what is on my mind
are my intentions of the friendly kind
or am i just too scared of the truth

if I came too close to you
would my world stop and twist
reverse itself from a simple kiss
or am I just anticipations fool
longing for what I might miss
if I turn away will the feelings
disappear for good

my heartbeat screams
in syncopated beats
but I’d be crazy to show it to you
your beauty can’t get the best of me
I’d rather walk away than be another casualty
than let you know the truth

if I came too close to you
would my world stop and twist
reverse itself from a simple kiss
or am I just anticipations fool
longing for what I might miss
if I turn away will the feelings
disappear for good

I can’t lie anymore
The only way I’ll win
is by walking out that door
away from you
from you

if I came too close to you
would my world stop and twist
reverse itself from a simple kiss
or am I just anticipations fool
longing for what I might miss
if I turn away will the feelings
disappear for good
