Phone Call She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up She said she was feeling all alone Sitting by the telephone She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up She said she found her a man That’s what she said She said she found her a man That’s what she said She told me he couldn’t feel no pain She told me he was the pouring rain She said she found her a man That’s what she said She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up She said she was feeling all alone Sitting by the telephone She said she was feeling down That’s why she called me up © 1992 by Josh Haden, published by Angel Heurtebise, administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

So Far Away From You My love for you is like fire And I cannot put it out Even though it gives me So much pain My love for you is like the ocean And it cannot be contained Even though it makes me Feel so empty Love makes me so confused I don’t know what to do I don’t want to think its over Love makes me feel so much But it keeps me from your touch Love makes me feel so far away From you My love for you is like a mountain And I cannot bring me down Even though the air is so Hard to breathe My love for you is like the sunshine And it makes things seem so bright Even though those things are so Hard to see What love puts me through What I never knew When love leaves me feeling So sad Love makes me feel so much But it keeps me from your touch Love makes me feel so far away From you © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

Gonna Die Song I feel like an airplane baby So far up above I’m so glad I can fly, I can fly, I can fly I feel like a bird now baby With wings so wide I can soar Through the sky, through the sky, through the sky I feel the wind on my face now baby I’m over the trees I feel good I’m so high, I’m so high, I’m so high I’m so high in the sky now baby And I’m not coming down ‘Cuz if I do I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die I’m closing in on the sun now baby I’m getting real hot I’m so glad I’m flying, I’m flying, I’m flying I’m soaring through the clouds now baby I’m so free I can glide, I can glide, I can glide I feel the wind on my face now baby I’m over the trees I feel good I’m so high, I’m so high, I’m so high I’m so high in the sky now baby And I’m not coming down ‘Cuz if I do I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die, I’m gonna die © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

To The Sea 03:39
To The Sea I don’t want to be anyone I just want to live ‘til the day is done I just want to drift away To the sea, to the sea, to the sea And I hope I’ll never reach the land again I don’t want to see anymore I just want to float evermore I just want to drift away With the waves, with the waves, with the waves And I hope I’ll never reach the land again I just want to drift away To the sea, to the sea, to the sea And I hope I’ll never reach the land again © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

Will Never Change There’s a broken window in my house Its letting the cold air come right on in I can only wonder why the window shattered But its wintertime and I think it won’t shut again And I’m afraid That this season Will never change Will never change Will never change Sitting by my window Watching the rain come right in In every cold drop I see reflections of myself Watching the rain fall Through a window that’s but a frame In this wintertime I don’t think I’ll see the sun again And I’m afraid That this season Will never change Will never change Will never change © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

Long Gone 03:09
Long Gone When the sun Decides to rise up in the morning And say hello When the sun Stretches out its arms And winks at me early in the morn I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone When my girl Decides to throw her arms around me And say she’s mine When my girl Throws her worries to the wind And says I’m fine When my girl Unfurls I won’t have no time for that I’ll have already left on my track When my girl Decides to love me every day And all the time I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone When the sun Soars so high up in the sky And looks so bright When the sun Arrives to burn Says every day will be alright I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone I’ll be long gone © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

Love That I Have Lost I’ll put away my sadness And I will find it disappears I’ll put away my madness And I will find that I can think I’ll put away my gladness And I will find that I can fall asleep And dream of the love That I have lost I’ll put away the good times And I will find they evaporate I’ll put away the bad times And I will find my innocence I’ll put away the meantimes And I will find the time to fall asleep And dream of the love That I have lost © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

It Could Be Heaven It could be heaven Up there Up above the sky Lord says there’s a place for me After I’m through with this life After I’m through with this life It could be heaven You know Where I’ll watch the river flow Lord how I hope and prey That’s a place I can go That’s a place I can go That’s a place I can go Where I can go Where I can go It could be heaven Up there Up above the sky Lord says there’s a place for me After I’m through with this life After I’m through with this life It could be heaven You know Where I’ll watch the river flow Lord how I hope and prey That’s a place I can go That’s a place I can go That’s a place I can go Where I can go Where I can go © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

White Sand I believe in nothing I really think its something I watch the world turn around me I believe in something I really think its nothing I watch the world turn without me And in the sand In the white sand In the white sand We’ll make love In the white sand I believe in something I really think its nothing I watch the world turn without me And in the sand In the white sand In the white sand We’ll make love In the white sand © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

I Could Be (The Only One) I could be the only one Who thinks about you All day long Who falls asleep at night All alone The day rolls in The day rolls on And I could be the only one I could be the only one Who thinks about you As the clouds pass along But to another man You’ve gone You’ve gone The clouds roll in The clouds roll on And I could be the only one I could be the only one Who thinks about you All day long Who falls asleep at night All alone The day rolls in The day rolls on And I could be the only one © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

Waking Song 08:59
Waking Song How can I know If its the morning Or the shadow How can I see The sunshine Through my window Every time I try to wake Its time to go to sleep Every time I try to sleep Its time to wake up How can the day Turn to nighttime With these shadows How can the night Brighten the clouds Through my window Every time I try to wake Its time to go to sleep Every time I try to sleep Its time to wake up Every time I try to wake Its time to go to sleep Every time I try to sleep Its time to wake up Its time to wake up Its time to wake up © 1993 by Josh Haden, Published by Angel Heurtebise, Administered by Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.

about

13 previously unreleased tracks recorded prior to 1995's landmark "Blue Moods Of Spain" album by the band Spain. Includes a song from the last ever demo recorded by Spain bassist/vocalist Josh Haden's '80s SST punk band Treacherous Jaywalkers, as well as songs, recorded on a 4-track cassette deck by Haden and original Spain guitarist Ken Boudakian, which informed and helped shape the music on "Blue Moods". Also includes a song recorded in practice session by the original pre-1994 Spain line-up. Attached is an exclusive-to-Bandcamp 20-page .pdf file with liner notes written by Josh Haden, archival photos, song descriptions, album credits, and lyrics. The .pdf file is not available with this album from iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, or any other digital music retailer.

All of the songs in this collection are demo recordings, in most cases recorded directly to multi-track cassette tapes in the early 1990s, mastered to other cassette tapes, and stored in a box for over 15 years. Tape hiss and other audio anomalies can be heard on most if not all of the tracks.

Released by Diamond Soul Recordings, a record label founded in 2004 by Spain bassist/vocalist Josh Haden. Every penny you spend purchasing a Diamond Soul product, after fees and taxes, goes back into the production of future Josh Haden and Josh Haden-affiliated releases.
