Thank you, UTW.
I checked YouTube but it wasn't posted there. Some of Ladd's interviews were there, but not this one yet. I'm going to keep checking.
I'll certainly let you know if I can find it.

You're such a devoted fan, Luvy - Tim is lucky to have you in his corner. I hope you get to see him in concert soon and that you get to hug him.

I'm not ready to write a review - I still have trouble matching a song with its title. Timothy doesn't seem to follow the advice of including the song's title in the song as many times as possible. The album title is taken from a song which has a completely different title.

"You're so wild" - is this a parent worrying about a grown-up child but trying not to interfere?

Always fun to transcribe the lyrics by ear. This one's pretty straightforward, the others I've attempted, so far, have some quite unlikely lines. For instance, I'm sure that, despite what my ears are telling me, the second verse of I Refuse does not contain the line "Your shed is not mine" (surely it's not s**t)


It's Alright

When you sleep so close to me I know it's alright
trouble feels so far away I know it's alright
when your fingers brush my face I know it's alright
I'm the canvas that you paint I know it's alright

Outside the rain is pouring down I know it's alright
cause your breath is my only sound I know it's alright

I know I'm the lucky one
I know that you care
all I have to do is turn
and see you lying there

You're a mystery, you're a saint I know it's alright
You're my fortune, you're my fame I know it's alright

I know I'm the lucky one
I know that you care
all I have to do is turn
and see you lying there

Everytime I touch your hair I know it's alright
When your sweetness fills the air I know it's alright
I know it's alright, I know it's alright

Leap Of Faith enters the Billboard "Heatseekers" albums at No.10.
Let's hope it does well for Timothy.

Yes Funk 50 the word is s**t. Kind of comes as a shock doesn't it? I'm sure he has a reason he used it, it just sounds strange coming out of his mouth when we always hear him being soft spoken and gentle.

He is pushing 70 & he is a rock star. Haven't you seen the clip of him telling paparazzi to 'f*k off'?

I know that there are people on this board who object to swearing, but it's hardly a great surprise in my view.

I draw a line
I'm not looking to save you
Your sh** is not mine
I need to stand my ground
and keep my cool

An apt choice of word as he's talking about not getting pulled into other people's fights.

Has he spoken about the lyrics in any of the interviews?

Ooh, I wonder if it is about one of his kids and that kid's troubles with substance abuse and legal issues? Or another relative? It sounds like he's drawing boundaries in a relationship, refusing to get involved or sucked in to the other person's issues.

And thank you Funk for the lyrics to Its Alright - I really like it!!! Beautiful words.

FP, I love that video of Timothy cursing at the photog. You can see the difference when he's on tour with the Eagles and when he's not. (he was on tour here)
