about

Jagged Edges: I started writing this song 6 days before I flew to Canada to record. It's all about how you sometimes have to wait out those stressful times in a marriage - because there are always things like stopping to dance in the kitchen, or making a cup of coffee for someone
while they're still asleep that make you feel the magic of being together. (fun fact - 19 year anniversary in 2017!) I wasnt sure if it was going to be a duet or not until the homecoming dinner / recording launch party on my first night in Victoria and as soon as the guitar came out and I played the song for Tolan, Carolyn, & Dennis I knew from the look on Tolan's face that it had to be an old school Porter / Dolly style duet. Guitar solo on this one is all Tolan.

lyrics

You were all jagged edges with a hurricane mouth
I loved you too much to give in to doubt
I knew with what we had we'd figure it out we'd soften those edges
till the storm moved down south

Chorus
Cuz we know what we need to find
so pour another bottle of wine i
t's the time that we take and the love that we make
so grab my hand little darling and let's walk down that line

Like an angry old dog defending her food sometimes in this life I'm just not in the mood we all have our good days and we all have our bad
but dancing with you always makes me less sad

Chorus

Well I'm making coffee and watching you sleep
sometimes in this life you Gotta know what to keep
I'm leaving tomorrow heading out on the road
I keep your heart with me wherever I roam

Chorus
