about

How long has it been? Wasn’t it two minutes ago we last met Marc, Ray and Jared in The Soul Shop up the park on Serena Lane for coffee? You remember! Those endless afternoons and evenings beneath the brew of rock, pop, country, folk, jazz, bossa and soul blended together by the natural maturing of life. Or was that before Rome? Ten years you say? Has it really been a decade? It always seems the way…

Time isn’t relative; time is the mischievous stranger who steals into your room and rearranges the furniture while you’re gazing at yourself in the mirror; the lifetime of longing reflected back in the eyes of a stranger in that fleeting glance as you both pass in the arrivals lounge; the age difference between the person you thought you were, the person you are and the person you need to be for her. It’s the spark of a second you needed in those weeks of the unrelenting; it’s the afternoon together that lasted all year; it’s the forward momentum you felt even though the scenery stays unrepentantly the same; it’s the endless years of connection in days of first of attraction; it’s the rapid unravelling of the decades building a beautiful labour of love; it’s the years of your baby growing which passed in the blink of an eye; it’s the eternity spent waiting until the weekend you can see the person who stole your heart again. It’s All The Little Mornings-a cumulation of days and weeks and years of life expertly distilled onto two discs by Marc Teamaker and the Soul Shop. Jared Nixon and Ray Herrmann hold time as Marc Teamaker threads his compositions around it-as reassuringly familiar as leafing back through those moments you captured in light forever in the leather-bound book; as fresh as the promise of the new day. ‘All The Little Mornings’-the stunning debut double LP from Marc Teamaker and the Soul Shop. - Iain Clarke 2019

Track Name: Summer Come Save Me
Summer Come Save Me

What a day
What a car breaking down day
I move so fast
To get nowhere

Half a year
Stuck inside
A racing mind
Gears that won't unwind

Summer come and save me
90 Days and 90 nights
Summer come and rescue me
I need a little slow time
Just trying to survive

Work so hard
not to snap
like David's slingshot
pulled way back

Surprise attack
Gives you a start
Don't jump the gun
Don't put the course
before the heart

Summer come and save me
90 Days and 90 nights
Summer come and rescue me
I need a little slow time
Just trying to survive

I ride the waves
The radio dial I switch around
I'm hoping that soon
The perfect song
I'll stumble on
I'll stumble on

Summer come and save me
90 Days and 90 nights
Summer come and save me
I need a little slow time
Summer come and rescue me
I need a little slow time
Just trying to survive
Just trying to survive
Just trying to survive

Track Name: My Wide Eyes
My Wide Eyes

A cloud moves in
In front of the sun
And I wait for you now
To come back

When you do
Will you have changed?
It will not be for me
To say

You’ll arrive in the afternoon
And I will be out
When you touch down
I will get your call
From the runway
To my smile

I was sleeping
I was caught
I forgot who you were
Again

When I woke up
Will you have changed?
It will not be for me
To say

You’ll arrive in the afternoon
And I will be out
When you touch down
I will get your call
From the runway
To my smile
To my smile

A cloud moves in
In front of the sun
And I wait for you now
To come back

You’ll arrive in the afternoon
And I will be out
When you touch down
I will get your call

You’ll arrive in the afternoon
And I will be out
When you touch down
I will get your call
From the runway
To my smile
To my smile

Track Name: How You'll Find Me
How You’ll Find Me

I feel at home in this English town
But I’m not sure if she wants me anymore
She comes forward then she turns around
I go deeper in the underground again

And how you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?

I had to come here to reset my head
Sleep in some other foreign bed this time
Go up the High Street then I turn around
Go back into the underground again

And how you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?

And the tunnel is so long
Like in that other song
I hope the lights will show

And this should not be hide and seek
A time for you to sneak
Down the rabbit hole

I feel at home in this English town
But I’m not sure if she wants me anymore
She comes forward then she turns around
I go deeper in the underground again

And how you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?
How you’ll find me
Who knows?

Track Name: What It's All About
What It’s All About

Gather all your wisdom
Scattered on the floor
Your books and your bags
And everything you came here for

All you need is to listen
No one needs to shout
Keep your ears and your vision
To the ground

You don’t need a witness
To help you figure out
What it’s all about

You’re making decisions
Split second and sound
Everything that you put in
Comes back around

You go on intuition
No shadow of a doubt
To what it’s all about
What it’s all about

You can see pain ricochet
Right off the wall you hit
Before you came unchained from it

You avoid collisions
With every ivory tower
That you have been imprisoned in
Where you have been devoured
And to avoid frustration
You take a different route
To what it’s all about
What it’s all about

Track Name: Changing Your Light
Changing Your Light

Changing your light
Burning too bright
Burning it out again

Changing your light
You can’t get it right
So you’re changing your
Life again

Love you too little
Love you too much
Gotta the middle ground
So you can gain your balance
And not go under
Or over the edge

Changing your light
Burning too bright
So you’re changing your life again

One thing to lean
Another to clutch
So when you’re on the beam
You know that you
Must gain your balance
And not go under
Or over the edge

Changing your light
Burning too bright
Burning it out again

Changing your light
You can’t get it right
So you’re changing your
Life again

Changing your light
Burning too bright
Burning it out again

Changing your light
You can’t get it right
So you’re changing your
Life again

Track Name: Daisy
Daisy

Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
I love you like the flower that you are
Growing up wild
Up in my heart

Don’t forget your glasses
Wear them for advantage
Otherwise your eyes will only see
Part of what is written
All that I’m admitting
In the sky
The sky that you own

Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
I love you like the flower that you are
Growing up wild
Up in my heart

Don’t know who you came from
Can only just imagine
What’s flowing through your veins
Is magic
An now I’ve got you swimming
Upstream under my skin
You’ve landed in my lap without me knowing

Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
I love you like the flower that you are
Growing up wild
Up in my heart

Playing tricks
Playing shy
Sailing things over my head
Or just smile
Blinking your eyes
Blinking your eyes

Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
I love you like the flower that you are
Growing up wild
Up in my heart

Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
Fool me don’t fool me
My daisy now
Crazy little child
I love you like the flower that you are
Growing up wild
Up in my heart

Track Name: Unraveling
Unraveling

Don’t want to linger
Don’t want to lie with you
On this bed of nails no more

I lift my finger
Pull the string from this ball
Of confusion and of stress
We must confess

It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling

The flag is planted
To camouflage this blizzard of lies
It waves from side to side

We are blind and slanted
Do we show ourselves
Or do we hide?
Either way we slip and slide

It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling

Talk of silver linings
Talk of better worlds
Coming from our falling
Farther apart
It all unfurls

It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling
It’s all unraveling

Middle Child

Give me something
To persuade me love
Aid me love
To stay in the middle
Give me something that will
Sway me love
To smile now
Right now
Put me in the middle

Give me something
To persuade me love
Aid me love
To stay in the middle
Give me something that will
Sway me love
To smile now
Right now
Put me in the middle

I might have had too much
I’m wobbly in the knees
Wouldn’t you agree?
You could be my crutch
Honey help me please
Maybe just a little

Give me something
To persuade me love
Aid me love
To stay in the middle
Give me something that will
Sway me love
To smile now
Right now
Put me in the middle

You’ve been out of touch
That’s really not a reach
So trade me some release
For your acquittal

You could be my crutch
Honey help me please
Maybe just a little

Give me something
To persuade me love
Aid me love
To stay in the middle
Give me something that will
Sway me love
To smile now
Right now
Put me in the middle

Give me something
To persuade me love
Aid me love
To stay in the middle
Give me something

Track Name: Light Switch
Light Switch

And when the heart cracks
A joke in half
Such an empty laugh
Comes barreling back

And when you can’t sleep
Without the strangest dreaming
And when I find you hiding
My soul won’t keep

Fly me now
Back to your town
I’m homesick
In my own home now
It’s a light switch turning off
Where’d you go?

When the sun filters
Between the leaves
No one could believe
How much I miss you

Until night drops
Like the other shoe
And I’m still missing you

Fly me now
Back to your town
I’m homesick
In my own home now
Like a light switch turning off
Where’d you go?

Fly me now
Back to your town
I’m homesick
In my own home now
It’s a light switch turning off
Where’d you go?
Where’d you go?

Fly me now
Back to your town
Like a switch turning off
Where’d you go?

Connecting Flights

Saturday can’t come quick enough
Girl, you know
Now you’ve seen a side of me
Never wanted to show

Just need a little more of your time again
Haven’t been together for a while
And when will I be?
When will I be?

It’s hard to make connecting flights
When the weather’s been this bad
You keep flying over and under
The stupid things I said

Just need a little more of your smile again
Haven’t been together for a while
And when will I be?
When will I be?

Today will feel like Christmas Eve
I believe
If tomorrow you’re here with me
I believe

Saturday can’t come quick enough
Girl, you know
Now you’ve seen a side of me
Never wanted to show

Just need a little more of your time again
Haven’t been together for a while
And when will I be?
When will I be?

Just need a little more of your smile again
Haven’t been together for a while
And when will I be?
When will I be?

Disappearing Act

I am just a child
I got here from God knows where
Hiding in my smile
Is a nervousness

Should I make no sound
Should I try
A disappearing
Cry a silent cry
All my life
I’m older now

I’ve been around the world
I’ve been selfish
I’ve been kind
Traveled with a girl
Who’s vanished under my eyes

Should I make no sound
Should I try
A disappearing
Cry a silent cry
All my life
I’m older now

I’m out in the open
Stuck up in the air
Waiting for someone to help me down

I am just a child
I got here from God knows where

Should I make no sound
Should I try
A disappearing
Cry a silent cry
All my life
I’m older now

I am just a child
I got here from God knows where

Track Name: Something Is In Your Eye
Something Is In Your Eye

Banging into your own shadow
Walking backward through the house
The tape is now reversed
You’re no longer cursed today

Design the morning and the afternoon
And the night will fall in place
A voice will sing to you
And help you follow through again

Something is in your eye
Something you won’t let by
Kissing the lark goodnight
Releasing it from the stage
Slipping into the sky
Dripping on to the page

Find the moment and a slow balloon
Let it go and click away
The lens will focus you
And help you follow through again

Something is in your eye
Something you won’t let by
Kissing the lark goodnight
Releasing it from the stage
Slipping into the sky
Dripping on to the page

Something moves my fingers
It’s like a ouija board
Some strange force

Something is in your eye
Something you won’t let by
Kissing the lark goodnight
Releasing it from the stage
Slipping into the sky
Dripping on to the page

Something is in your eye
Something you won’t let by
Kissing the lark goodnight
Releasing it from the stage
Slipping under the tide
Skipping over the ages

Skinny Wrist


Put it on your skinny wrist
Golden bracelet
I wanna kiss it
I wanna twirl it 'round tonight

Oh your summer skin tastes so salty
You wouldn't fault me
for taking a bite

Put it on your skinny wrist
Golden bracelet
I wanna kiss it
I wanna spin it 'round tonight

Oh the warmest wind is
swirling around us
I think it has found us
catching a wave

Oh your summer skin tastes so salty
You wouldn't fault me
for taking a bite

Put it on your skinny wrist
Golden bracelet
I wanna kiss it
I wanna taste it tonight

Put it on your skinny wrist
Golden bracelet
I wanna kiss it
I wanna twirl it 'round tonight
I wanna twirl it 'round
I wanna twirl it 'round tonight

Same Page

I can not unpack my bag
You are in it and your room is also there
’Til I get back
I’ll leave the shirts with your scent
I’m under that
Sweet memory

We are in the front room on the couch
You light a cigarette
I put my head in your lap
’Til I get back
I feel your hands thru my hair
I’m under that
Sweet memory

I don’t ever want to have to
Leave again
Baby can you help me make it that way?
I put a marker in the book you game me on
On the same page
And leave it on the plane

We go laughing down your street
On our way to get something to eat
And after that
We find your bed
I’m under every hypnotizing whisper
I’ve been fed

I don’t ever want to have to
Leave again
Baby can you help me make it that way?
I put a marker in the book you game me on
On the same page
And leave it on the plane

I don’t ever want to have to
Leave again
Baby won’t you help me make it that way?
I put a marker in the book you game me on
On the same page
And leave it on the plane

I don’t ever want to have to
Leave again
Baby won’t you help me make it that way?
I put a marker in the book you game me on
On the same page
And leave it on the plane

I can not unpack my bag

Ain’t It Funny How

I
I landed on my feet this morning
Something that I
Something that I don’t do often
I was getting out of bed
To a different world and then

You
Went jumping off another seesaw
You couldn’t take
Another up and down day anymore
You went out on to a limb
To ask me where the hell I’d been

Ain’t it funny how
Ain’t it funny how things work
It all just went berserk
I’ll bet you money now
Even if I lose my shirt
It’s all gonna be so worth it
Darling

Who
Who would take the first leap in the lake
So it is you
But you know that I’m right behind you baby
You went out on to a limb
And I’ll followed you right in

Ain’t it funny how
Ain’t it funny how things work
It all just went berserk
I’ll bet you money now
Even if I lose my shirt
It’s all gonna be so worth it
Darling

Ain’t it funny how
Ain’t it funny how things work
It all just went berserk
I’ll bet you money now yeah!
Even if I lose my shirt
It’s all gonna be so worth it

Ain’t it funny how
Ain’t it funny how things work
It all just went berserk

A Drinker’s Dream

Here’s another funny little thought
I caught on the plane
I could have anything
It’s just a drinker’s dream

When I started to doze off
The cart it came around
I don’t want anything now
I’m in a drinker’s dream

So many miles
Up in the air
Days I spent there

Here’s a little creature crawling up
The cup on my tray
Take it away
Don’t won’t it in my dream

The pretty little thing that I want
Is right in front of me
Haunting me
Tempting me in my drinker’s dream

So many miles
Up in the air
Days I spent there
So many smiles
Trapped in a web
I’m off my head

So many miles
Up in the air
Days I spent there
So many smiles
Trapped in a web
I’m off my head

Here’s another funny little thought
I caught on the plane
I could have anything
It’s just a drinker’s dream

Open Invitation

Pros and Cons and magic wands wave
As I walk on by
Through this terminal
I move real slow and catch your eye

You’re an open invitation
Provoking me to try
In a second
We could could collide

I washed my face
Of every look before I came here
I start from scratch
And hope to meet my match it’s so clear

You’re an open invitation
Provoking me to try
In a second
We could could collide

You cannot think in such a flash
But do you really want to?
You know it just might haunt you
If you let this moment pass

You’re an open invitation
Provoking me to try
In a second
We could could collide

You’re an open invitation
Provoking me to try
You’re an open invitation

You’re an open invitation
Provoking me to try
In a second
We could could collide

At a game that will never be

I remember
When you changed that summer day
I remember
Just like yesterday

I went down
On the ground
I was begging you to stay
In such a way
I was

I remember
When you changed that summer day
Took the sunshine
Painted it all grey

Stripped the bee’s
Of their buzz
I was
Stung by your leaving
Yes I was
In such a way
Yes I was
In such a way

Haven’t healed entirely
But I’m hoping
To get back to the ocean
Where I can feel
Desire and a wave
To knock me back to where I was
Before you left

I remember
When you changed that summer day
I remember
Like it was yesterday

Stripped the bee’s
Of their buzz
I was
Stung by your leaving
Yes I was
In such a way
Yes I was
In such a way

Haven’t healed entirely
But I’m hoping
To get back to the ocean
Where I can feel
Desire and a wave
To knock me back to where I was
Before you left me
In such a way

I remember
How you changed that summer day

Candy Store

Oh! She was good
She controlled me where I stood
I’m no better now

Yes! She was sweet
Gave me more than just a treat
From her candy store

And I still can’t get the taste
Out of my mouth
Slowly turning sour
Traveling south

Oh! She was good
She controlled me where I stood
I’m no better now

And I still can’t get the taste
Out of my mouth
Slowly turning sour
Traveling south

And all I want is to be better understood
Standing where I stand
I never thought I would
Be put out

Oh she was warm
When she wanted to be
There is no better now

And I still can’t get the taste
Out of my mouth
Slowly turning sour
Traveling south

And all I want is to be better understood
Standing where I stand
I never thought I would
Be put out

Oh! She was good
She controlled me where I stood
I’m no better now

Yes! She was sweet
Gave me more than just a treat

Leave no world unturned
Looking for my place again
Leaving no world unturned

I’m not concerned
However much I spin
In circles I will
Leave no world unturned

I’m going forward
My revolution begins
Even if slower
Still my head it swims
And my desire burns

No world unturned
Looking for my style
Spinning ‘round the dial
Leaving no world unturned

Track Name: Time Is Just A Sham
Time Is Just A Sham

Always knew I’d know you
Saw you on the road
The one that leads to summer
The one that leads to hope
Got the spring to wind us up
Into a high above
The speed of fools
The ticking scope

Let’s go, go, go
Let’s take each other slow
I know, know, know
If time won’t lend a hand
Then time is just a sham

The flights are coming in
The night is getting thin
We won’t give in to sleep
We won’t be pushed around by that thief
We’ll hold it off
Barricade the door
Steal another day or more

Let’s go, go, go
Let’s take each other slow
I know, know, know
That time won’t run us down
‘Cause time is just a clown

All the little mornings
A secret to the sun
We’ll keep it from them
All the little mornings
Lining up like planes
Going down in flames

Let’s go, go, go
Let’s take each other slow
I know, know, know
That time won’t run us down
Let’s go, go, go
Let’s take each other slow
I know, know, know
If time won’t lend a hand
Then time is just a sham

Always knew I’d know you
Saw you on the road
The one that leads to summer
The one that leads to hope

Let’s
Go go go

Track Name: Hopeful 'Til The End
Hopeful ’Til The End

Making strides
Turning time
There are things
You can’t defend

You know I’ve tried
Not to be so blind
There’s only so much
You can pretend

Inside of something
I’ve got nothing again
Hopeful ’til the end
Hopeful ’til the end

You know I’ve tried
To let it all unwind
There’s only so much
You can extend

So inside of something
I’ve got nothing again
Hopeful ’til the end
Hopeful ’til the end

I didn’t want to lose your love
So I held on tight
I never would refuse your love
I lost my grip
In case you might

Inside of something
I’ve got nothing again
In sight of one thing
I start all over again
I will keep looking
I can not pretend
I’m hopeful ’til the end
Hopeful ’til the end
I’m hopeful ’til the end
Hopeful ’til the end
I’m hopeful ’til the end
Hopeful ’til the end
