you would give up your right arm to go back

to when you had a right arm
you’ll need some muscles to move it backward
push back the hands of time
broken glass is glittering like diamonds
can’t hear yourself thinking over the sirens
push back the hands of time
push back the hands of time
you want to sing to drown out the car horn
squeeze your eyes shut and scream like a newborn
like a newborn babe

dawn breaks like a fallen vase
push back the hands of time
unwelcome vision of rosy fingers
push back the hands of time
it wouldn’t help you if you’d had any sleep
it wouldn’t save you from the mission creep
push back the hands of time
push back the hands of time
screeching tires but never a collision
endless day without a sunset provision
endless day

push back the hands of time
push back the hands of time

you want to sing to drown out the car horn
squeeze your eyes shut and scream like a newborn
like a newborn babe
push back the hands of time
push back the hands of time

ON TOUR! AN EVENING WITH TMBG!

New show! Two sets! Curt Ramm on trumpet! Favorites! Deep cuts! New songs! More cursing!

Hello! John F. here. It is a very exciting moment as we embark on this, the 2nd magnificent leg of our US tour. We start with a long run of sold out shows on the West Coast, along with scheduled appearances on WTF and Conan, then trek across the Midwest and Northeast! If you haven’t heard, these are all “An Evening With TMBG” and that means a big night out! We start early with no opening act and play two sets. This expanded set up allows us to include many different songs from our repertoire with new selections from I Like Fun, Apollo 18, and Mink Car joining all the classic TMBG favorites. While the show changes almost every night we always make a point to spotlight John L.’s contra alto clarinet as well as the Curt Ramm trumpet. And yes there is a show within a show—we have the Quiet Storm; a set of new arrangements of songs where it’s often quiet but always stormy.
