Distant Eyes
I first met Frank Howell at the Breckenridge Galleries in 1983. Frank asked if I'd like to write an album of original songs about his paintings. I was thrilled to have the opportunity and to wrestle with the task of choosing from the hundreds of lithos and uniques that Frank offered. Frank was an incredibly prolific artist - painting all the time. I fondly remember him painting the most intense uniques on Sunday afternoons while listening to and watching the Denver Broncos on a small television set.
 

So we've come full circle... We miss Frank Howell but feel his spirit
through his art... which has inspired this music.

Oh hawk sittin in her hand
tell me what you're thinkin
tell me what you're thinkin
Oh hawk sittin in her hand
tell me what you're thinkin
would I understand

Oh hawk look on the horizon
Southern winds are blowin
is there gonna be a storm?
Oh hawk there's no need for flyin
Are ya gonna stay is she
gonna keep you warm?

Hey sun settin on the plains
tell me what you're thinkin
tell me what you're thinkin
Hey sun settin on the plains
tell me what you're thinkin
would I understand

Hey sun look on the horizon
Southern winds are blowin
is there gonna be a storm
Hey sun there's no need to leave me
If you leave me now
There's no need to carry on

Hey world sittin in my hand
tell me what you're thinkin
tell me what you're thinkin
Hey world sittin in my hand
tell me what you're planning
would I understand

Hey world are ya gonna leave me
Southern winds are blowin
is there gonna be a storm
Hey world there's no need to leave me
How am I gonna manage
How am I gonna keep warm

Hey man sittin with the plan
tell me what you're thinkin
tell me what you're thinkin
Hey man sittin with the plan
tell me what you're thinkin
would I understand

Hey man are ya gonna do it
Southern winds are blowin

Hey man what's the us to it

Oh hawk tell it to the man

tell him what you're thinkin
Oh hawk, tell it to the man
tell him what you're thinkin
would he understand
