Davey Beige, “Fold In Two”: Album Release Info

Recorded on a Fostex reel to reel tape machine throughout the summer of 2007 the Davey Beige album “Fold In Two” is an acoustic mix of original material. The songs and performances on the album have been inspired by a diverse range of folk influences. Ranging from British 60’s acoustic guitarists such as Davy Graham and Bert Jansch to early twentieth century Americana including blues musician Lonnie Johnson.

True to the folk ethic “Fold In Two” is played rather than computer manipulated. What you hear is what was played by Davey and his special guest musicians. Guests include drummer Josh Sorenson (The Grand Central Band), mandolin player Harry Lyon (Hello Sailor) and Lap-steel extraordinaire Johnny Fluery. Any “mistakes” that might have been captured in the musical performances haven’t been erased; instead they are left in for a bit of “light and shade”. Also reflecting traditional freewheeling folk values the album is an independent self-release.

Track Name: Little Bit Of Light
Little Bit Of Light

Standing in the morning sun
Waiting for the world to come
Let it shine
Sitting on a coffee break
Don’t know what it’ll take
When will it shine?

As the road unwinds trying to find

A little bit of light
Little bit of light
Despite the night
A little bit of light
Shine down on me

Shaking off my coat
Feeling like a dope
When will it shine?
Running through the rain
I got no one else to blame
Let it shine

The road does lurch upon my search

Chorus

It’s a mystery to me
Maybe it’s meant to be
Let the light shine down on me

Real change is like a fine wine
It takes a lot of time
I’ve drunk a bottle or two
Don’t know what else to do
Let it shine

As the road unwinds trying to find

Chorus
Track Name: I've Been Down
I’ve Been Down

I’ve been down before my friend
You can’t hide from me
I can see lines across your face
Where a smile used to be
Has a girl ripped your heart in two?

I’ve been down before oh yeah
As low as you can get
Days I thought I’d never see
Times I could forget
When the sun never once shone through

I’ve been glum before old chum
You don’t have to lie to me
I can hear the pain in your voice
Pleading sympathy
Has the world ripped your dreams in two?

I’ve been down my friend
Track Name: As Sure As I Can Be
As Sure As I Can Be

As sure as I can be
As sure as I can be
As sure as anyone really knows
As far as I can tell
As far as I can tell
As far as anyone really knows, how it goes

White light hits a black road
Spooky faces in the trees
Corners come fast and sharp
Shattered by degrees
Who’s to say what’s right or wrong?
Where do I belong?
Who can say?

(Chorus)

Many miles of mercy
I’ve traveled with this moon
My heart is out here somewhere
Hope it finds me soon
Is the answer just a lucky guess?
A no or yes?
Is it any day?

(Chorus)
Track Name: I Can See You Now
I Can See You Now

I’m drumming my fingers on the steering wheel
Waiting for the traffic lights to change
A breakfast DJ is spinning a spiel
Trying to sell me something I don’t believe
Smiling at me

I can see you now
Looking too hard to leave
In the corner of my mind
I can see

The café girl thinks I’m talking with her
But I’m a million miles away
My coffees shaking like an amateur
I can’t hear a single word that she breathes
Laughing with me

I can see you now
Looking too hard to leave
In the corner of my mind
I can see

They say love is all that matters

Commuter cars are curving off into the years
Underneath the highway signs
Mobile phones ringing in their ears
I check the mirror the traffic starts to weave
Talking with me

I can see you now
Looking too hard to leave
In the corner of my mind
I can see

They say love is all that matters
Track Name: Brave Enough To Fly
Brave Enough To Fly

All my worlds’ confusion dark shadows in the cave
Surrounded by illusion trying to be brave
Brave enough to never die
Brave enough to fly

Caught between extremes underneath the wave
All my hopes and dreams trying to be brave
Brave enough to rise above
Brave enough to love

Here’s to all the toil flowers grace the grave
Lying in the soil trying to be brave
Brave enough to say goodbye
Brave enough to fly
Track Name: I Don't Ask Why
I Don’t Ask Why

I don’t need questions or tests
The full moon sky knows best
I need you I don’t ask why

I don’t need kingdoms or keys
A bird should fly toll free
I need you I don’t ask why

How can I ask when I know?
What you mean to me

I don’t need reasons or signs
The sun up high is fine
I need you I don’t ask why
I need you
I need you I don’t ask why
Track Name: Everything Depends On You
Everything Depends On You

I know I should be modern and heartless
Maybe I could be happy regardless
But when I look into your eyes
I know that’s not true
Everything depends on you

At the risk of sounding romantic
I’d say our love is as big as the Atlantic
When I hold you in my arms
I hope you feel it to
Everything depends on you

Don’t say we’re just friends
I like loving better
What else can I do?
Everything depends on you

Maybe these rhymes are sentimental
But these feelings are elemental
For me there is no doubt
Let your love shine through
Everything depends on you
Track Name: Are You Getting What You Wanted?
Are You Getting What You Wanted?

I used to tell myself
It’ll be all right
I used to tell myself
Don’t get so uptight
I’m not so free
Not as young as I used to be

Are you getting what you wanted?
Are you getting what you think you’re worth?
Are you getting what you wanted?

I used to tell myself
Leave it up to fate
I used to tell myself
All you’ve got to do is wait
I’m not so sure
My feet are out the door

Chorus

I used to hold my hand
Up to the sun
I used to watch my fingers
Melt into one

Chorus
Track Name: Leap Of Faith
Leap of Faith

Leap of faith
My sleeping bags unfurled
Hostel room
The other side of the world

Leap of faith
Coming in and out of the rain
Jackets wet
I got no one else to blame

They must be thinking I’ve lost the thread
All this Guinness I’m drinking has gone to my head
The difference between a loss and a win
To sink or to swim is mighty thin
If you’d rather play it safe don’t take a

Leap of faith
Nighttime turns into day
You’re still here
So everything’s OK

Leap of faith
We’re going to see this through
You got me
What else can we do?

They must be thinking I’ve lost the thread
All this Guinness I’m drinking has gone to my head
The difference between a loss and a win
To sink or to swim is mighty thin
If you’d rather play it safe don’t take a
Track Name: The Other Side Of Town
The Other Side Of Town

Sam and Jane where driving
Trying to make a break
At the river
Sam’s hands began to shake
Jane lit two cigarettes
She put one in his mouth
He said thanks sweetheart it’s not too far
This road will take us south

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Jane’s husband had been a handful
More murder than Sam could take
Jane had collected the insurance
Now they could escape
Outside the wind blew bitter
They drove past a rubbish tip
Sam looked straight ahead
Jane just bit her lip

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Idling outside of the motel
Keys hanging in the ignition
Sam said babe you go in first
So as not to arouse suspicion
Book yourself into a single room
In an hour I’ll do the same
Tomorrow at six met me back out here
We’ll catch that boat for Spain

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Next morning while Sam was waiting
In the twilight nervously
He dreamed about the continent
How their life was going to be
Glancing at his wrist watch
His throat went dry
He realised Jane was late
When he tried her room there was no reply

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2

Running back to the car
He cursed himself for being such a heel
Jane had all the cash
He hung his head behind the wheel
When the cops reeled him in
They said they’d had a call
That’s when he knew he was the guy
The guy to take the fall

If we follow it down, all the way down
It’ll get us to, the other side of town x2
