TIM GARRIGAN – Music Bio

" a sound that often betrays a passion for Bob Dylan - Tim Garrigan displays those desperate, lost feelings with courage and a remarkable ability to convey a wide range of emotions, showing that the archetype of the lonely city dweller, when rendered with depth and complexity, can still be a well of lyrical inspiration".

- Jack McGovern- NYC Deli Magazine July 2013

Track Name: Burning Star
(written in inspired moment following night star watching.. scribbled in orange crayon hastily on notebook paper... )

Burning Star-

'the sky is black and creeping.. the stars are sliding like sloths.. in their spots...
the stars don't ask questions.. they burn, burn, until they go out..

I wish I could be a burning star... and blind you with light not doubt...

My tragic stars... don't ask questions..
please please please.. I wish I could be a burning star..
and blind you
and find you
and shine you
with light not doubt..
Track Name: Petals Fall
Petals fall
in and around you
frozen
and they melt
into coldness
as they dance..

hours and minutes
and second chances
we flounder
in spite of
our need

now pity is what you gave me
and maybe it's what I asked for
and perhaps
love is just a
word

thought I could write you
a simple song
but as usual I go on
way too long

I'm just usin'
another thing
as a wall
to you all

you can help me
I can help you

you can help me
I can help you
Track Name: Remember When
remember when?
walking?
you asked me which way?

did you not notice?
my nervous strain?

how exists there time?
which shimmers through my mind?
of all you were and will?

please, do as you wish
and I, will be still

and find not a piece
of mask
as something to fill
up the task
of what's missing

you my dear
represent all
that is dear
and painfully
clear

the clock
says it's
ticking
and it's been
losing
years
Track Name: Let Us Be
westinghouse has cut the power
water locked up in the tower
grounds are closed
they're not for walking
I think someone forgot to pay the bill

look out your window
see the sky and you'll know that your mind
is mine

you'll know why
you'll know why

let us be patient when
things are moving slowly...

let us be patient when
things are moving too quickly

let us be patient when
things are moving slowly

let us be....
