It doesn't seem that way to me. What they have in common is they are about personal boundaries and Tim's attitude of "live and let live" despite disapproving of the way the other person is handling it. In "I Refuse" the other person is trying to involve him and he's saying "no", whereas in "You're So Wild", he'd like to help but knows his intereference would be unwelcome. He has a closer relationship with the "wild" person.

Thanks for your review. Nice to see someone take the plunge. I need to live with it longer as I still have trouble matching the song to its title. On a superficial level, I like it and prefer it to Expando.

When I heard "I Refuse" it made me wonder if it might have been about the discord after the Eagles resumed in 1994. Seems like at times there were 2 distinct "sides" and perhaps there were attempts by one side or the other to gain allies or support from the less involved band members.......maybe.

Thanks UndertheWire, I'm pleased that somebody is checking the lyrics. I'd discount "boor", even allowing for poetic licence, as it's a noun.
I visited another, all too rare, CD shop to find Tim's CD but unsurprisingly, they didn't have any TBS CDs. I feel very privileged to have grown up in the age of the music mega-store although the current environment is better for loyal pop music fans.

I'm so glad to see that Tim is intending to tour again. The Explando tour was a delight but Tim's live set list would be enhanced by a generous addition of Leap Of Faith tracks, especially Slow Down, All Those Faces, I Refuse, What I Should Do, You're So Wild and It's Alright. The Island and This Waltz have potential too, if the band can pull them off.

I know Tim's already performed My Hat and Red Dirt Road live but they're too wordy and country for my taste.

I finally got the new album downloaded and have been listening to it and I love it! I love Tim's sweet voice, but this album (and Expando) shows he can rock too! Overall a big

Songs standing out to me so far are:

My Hat
All Those Faces
I Refuse
Red Dirt Road
Pearl on a String

Have to say I'm not overly fond of The Island. It's pretty, but it's just too 60's (and Beach Boys as Funk mentioned) for me and I don't really care for xylophones in my music. (if that's what it is!)

All Those Faces popped up on my Spotify discovery feed, and so I searched for the lyrics and found this board. I love the Eagles so I've joined. Thanks for posting the lyrics, I've already worked out the chords and started learning the song, and will probably try a few more off that album - it's really growing on me. Thanks again!

Welcome, Robin! I admire your diligence in figuring out the chords on your own. I'm so lazy, I just go over to Ultimate Guitar and print out the tabs. The shame!

Since you have Spotify, may I recommend something? "Something Sad" from Timothy's Tell Me the Truth album. It's devastating!

Yeah, I usually go there too, but the song wasn't listed, which is why I ended up here. I've posted the chords there now (currently pending). And thanks for referring me to "Something Sad" - I'm surprised I never followed Timothy as a solo artist before...
