If hindsight was 20/20, this song wouldn't have been written.

Josh Backwell - guitar, voice, pen and paper.

I wonder if you’d tell me if you thought that I was crazy
If I’m chasing things much faster than you know my legs can take me
Encouragement can go so far, but you know you’ve gotta tell me
If I’m wasting all my time on a dream that’s based on nothing

I wanna know, am I running from the real thing?
I wanna know, am I running from, am I running from the truth

I always seem to find my feet in every situation
But in matters of the heart, I’m lacking inspiration
I throw my words away in the hope that they’ll be safer
Like the ink that I’ve inscribed as it sinks into the paper

I wanna know…

My mind is split in two by a line that’s so definitive
The battle rages on between the rational and intuitive
I wanna use my brain, I wanna use the whole damn thing
But every time I try to write, I just wanna play and sing

I wanna know…

I’m not laughing at your money
I’m not laughing at your car
It’s just that I’ve got so much more
When I’m holding my guitar
I know with all this idealism
I can only go so far
But money comes and goes
Would you trade it for your heart?

I wanna know…

I look into the window, trying to see my faint reflection
But my eyes are overwhelmed by the slightest of distractions
So I think of something else until my mind will take me back there
It’s a long and windy path, but I trust my mind to walk it

I wanna know…
I wonder if you’d tell me if you thought that I was crazy
If I’m chasing things much faster than you know my legs can take me

Musical Journeys
The next best question without an answer, this is a rough cut but it does make it feel 'live', I love the emotion in Josh's voice, you can't help but relate to that 'wanna know' feeling as well. Brilliant lyrics that you can ponder on or just let them take you through thoughts and questions that circle around a beautiful place in your heart and mind.


Crispy Monkeys latest mistake
yep, another shameless plug...how do I get to sleep at night?


I come from the land down under
another one of mine


SOUTH DOWN UNDER
am I running fron the real thing? AUSSIE


serendipity redux II
Yet another songwriter whose next work I await eagerly...
