Fine Line 04:08
FINE LINE M. Mosher/K. Proffit/A. Richmond/R. McCulley Working hard on that American dream Set out on my own when I was 16 We were playing for a living and living to play We were tumbleweeds rolling right into the fray You can tell me what’s real you can tell me what’s right It’s a fine line, between a dream and delusion The wind blows and that line keeps on moving Every time I find myself in this sweet confusion I know it’s a fine line Sometimes I see that white picket fence Take a look at my life is there something I missed We’re not so different you and me Oh we’re just feeding our own machines You can tell me what’s real we all wanna be free It’s a fine line, between a dream and delusion The wind blows and that line keeps on moving Every time I find myself in that sweet confusion I know it’s a fine line Mile markers flying by the moonlight is my guide Gonna take a chance this time It’s a fine line, between a dream and delusion The wind blows and that line keeps on moving Every time I find myself in that sweet confusion I know it’s a fine line I know it’s a fine line It’s a fine line, It’s a fine line Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Aubrey Richmond (BMI), Rich McCulley Music (BMI)

COLD COLD LOVE M. Mosher/I. Gothe/J. Rounds I’ve got twenty bucks to call my own, headed for the telephone Pick up, please pick up The feds pulled up my fingerprints, found the evidence you left Hang up, don’t hang up I’m not the first to pine for you walk across that line for your love Cold cold love, cold cold love And all I wanted was your love not these blood-stained gloves Blood-stained gloves I better stay off 95 take the back roads gotta drive all night Drive all night I’m not the first to pine for you, walk across that line for your love Cold cold love, cold cold love, cold cold love I changed my hair, my clothes, my name, makes no difference who’s to blame Give up, wait don’t give up Yeah I’ve still got one thing to do baby I’d start running if I were you I’m not the first to pine for you, walk across that line for your love But I’ll be the last to pine for you, walk across that line for your love Cold cold love, cold cold love, cold cold love, cold cold love Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Gothe Publishing (BMI), James Rounds Music (ASCAP)

The 405 04:46
The 405 K. Proffit The damn freeway’s backed up tonight. How am I gonna get to the other side? Detours take our precious time, we’ve got nothing between us but the 405. There’s not gonna be a high-speed chase, no sneaking into that diamond lane Time’s gonna tell me what it’s all about. I’ve got everything I need right now We’ve got life behind us, open skies above, the walls of the canyon on either side In front of us now is a great divide and there’s nothing between us but the 405 Made my way west on a steel string, It was an ocean breeze that blew you in I followed you home got in your head, I left my feathers next to your bed Nothing’s forever and change is sure, tonight is all I’m asking for If I can make it over this valley floor, I’m gonna come alive when I get to your door We’ve got life behind us, open skies above and the walls of the canyon on either side In front of us now is a great divide and there’s nothing between us but the 405 We’ve got time we’ve got space, we’ve got music we’ve got grace If we make it out of this city alive I’m gonna scratch our names into a highway sign Is it crazy that I feel this way when I don’t even know your middle name? So I’m holding in what’s on my mind cuz when I say it I’m gonna mean it this time Oh, I’m gonna mean it this time We’ve got life behind us, open skies above and the walls of the canyon on either side But in front of us now is a great divide and there’s nothing between us but the 405 Let nothing come between us but the 405 Kirsten Proffit (BMI)

ROLL AWAY THE STONE M. Mosher/K. Proffit/T. Russell Kamp Down so low hiding in the shadows Lights turned out nobody’s at home Heart’s strung out hanging on a wire It’s just too much to roll away that stone Everybody knows the face of darkness nothing but your mind to tell you lies Caught up in the echoes of the silence you’re not alone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Roll away roll away roll away that stone With blinded eyes driving round forever Midnight rain falling down like tears Take my hand we’ll lift this weight together Come on darling roll away that stone Everybody knows the face of darkness nothing but your mind to tell you lies Caught up in the echoes of the silence you’re not alone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Well I know that life can be heavy but I won’t let it get me down Everybody knows the face of darkness nothing but your mind to tell you lies Caught up in the echoes of the silence you’re not alone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Roll away roll away roll away that stone Everybody knows the face of darkness, roll away the stone Caught up in the echoes of the silence, roll away the stone Everybody knows the face of darkness caught up in the echoes of the silence Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Steady Teddy Publishing (ASCAP)

THE LEAVING KIND M. Mosher/K. Proffit Another safe landing I can breathe for a moment Until the sweet sound of freedom comes calling him back to the clouds He’ll go without warning cuz nobody owns him Better get used to goodbye he’s the leaving kind I feel him get closer and it’s never over And he never looks back at the miles underneath his feet I’m a delicate creature I’m struck with this fever Why’d I have to fall in love with the leaving kind I don’t wanna to try to hold him down just to have him by my side Wild horses were never meant to ride Slowly I’ll let go he’ll be gone come tomorrow God help me ease my mind he’s the leaving kind God help me ease my mind he’s the leaving kind Been told by his mother he’d never recover If he ever let a woman too close she’d break him down The longer the staying the harder the breaking So I’m feeling the sting of goodbye he’s the leaving kind I don’t wanna try to hold him down just to have him by my side I don’t wanna tie him to this earth I’ve got to let him fly Wild horses were never meant to ride Slowly I’ll let go he’ll be gone come tomorrow Why’d I have to give my heart to the leaving kind Why’d I have to give my heart to the leaving kind Why’d I have to give my heart to the leaving kind Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI)

Free Man 04:21
FREE MAN M. Mosher/K. Proffit/A. Richmond/J. Charles Miller Look who’s standing at my door the face of a ghost coming back for more Are you missing me, is that what you’re here to say? You know I never asked for much I lived on rations of your love Strung out on the promises you made This is what you wanted I’m giving you your way I changed my name but you changed your mind you’re far too young to have your heart confined You’re a free man, a free man, I’m a free man now When you feel that ache of a lonesome night just think of the trouble that you left behind You’re a free man, a free man, you’re a free man now Please don’t tell me where you’ve been though I’d love to touch your summer skin Somehow I believed I was the only one But wasn’t it you who walked away leaving me breathless in your wake I can’t betray the woman I’ve become You were all I wanted but that was yesterday I changed my name but you changed your mind you’re far too young to have your heart confined You’re a free man, a free man, I’m a free man now When you feel that ache of a lonesome night just think of the trouble that you left behind You’re a free man, a free man, you’re a free man now Take one last look at me it’s all just history I changed my name but you changed your mind and now I know that you were never mine You’re a free man, a free man, I’m a free man now When you feel that ache of a lonesome night just think of the trouble that you left behind You’re a free man, a free man, you’re a free man now I’m a free man, you’re a free man now, I’m a free man, you’re a free man now Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Aubrey Richmond (BMI), Count Mecha Music (BMI)

UNDER BLUE SKIES M. Mosher/K. Proffit/A. Richmond/A. White Sun gone down, turned out the lights, locked the door, everything’s quiet Tomorrow we’ll talk but I’ll miss you tonight Where are you now? I hope that you’re safe, a little cash in your pocket, smile on your face I’m marking off days and I’m holding on tight You’re not in my arms but I know you’re alright Under blue skies counting the stars Under blue skies that’s who you are I’ll meet you there under blue skies Moon’s gone down, sun hits my eyes, miles to go, towns drift by I wish I could share this but I don’t know how I’m coming home soon but I miss you right now Under blue skies counting the stars Under blue skies that’s who we are You’ll meet me here under blue skies Won’t be here forever but forever we’ll be Counting the stars Under blue skies that’s who we are Under blue skies counting the stars Under blue skies that’s who we are I’ll meet you there under blue skies Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Aubrey Richmond (BMI), Pussy Dog Music (BMI)

Fly Me Away 04:17
FLY ME AWAY M. Mosher/K. Proffit/A. Richmond/S. Kinnebrew Time to fly, moments now I’m headed soon I’ll be gone awhile, not sure if I’ll return to you Wild-eyed, you draw me in but I have to draw the line I can’t stay this time Standing on a jet way, waiting on a plane all alone Fly me away I’m willing I don’t care the place Two hearts always turning Bring me back to your love someday On the 5 illuminated by the moon No room tonight, for the morning I’m in hot pursuit Wild-eyed, driving blind and missing all the signs I can’t keep between the lines Radiator steaming, alive but barely breathing all alone Fly me away I’m willing I don’t care the place Two hearts always turning Bring me back to your love someday Bring me back to your love someday Two hearts always turning, always leaving and returning Bring me back to your love, bring me back to your love Fly me away I’m willing I don’t care the place Two hearts always turning Bring me back to your love someday Bring me back to your love someday, bring me back to your love someday Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Aubrey Richmond (BMI), Space Camp Publishing (ASCAP)

LOVE GETS IN THE WAY M. Mosher/K. Proffit/B. Penzias Sitting at the bar with tears in his eyes She’s got him wondering, should he give another try She took all that he built and she threw it all away The signs light up the hills and the flags were being waved That’s when love gets, love gets in the way That’s when love gets, love gets in the way She gave herself away for a dream that came too soon Now she’s looking for shelter from a prisoner’s view Cuz his love was an anchor tied around her heart The weight of it all was tearing her apart That’s when love gets, love gets in the way That’s when love gets, love gets in the way That’s how the story goes, you watch love grow, then you let it go They start off walking and they take that chance And they’ll be alright as long as they don’t look back, don’t look back That’s when love gets, love gets in the way That’s when love gets, love gets in the way That’s when love gets, love gets in the way Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI), Bernelands Music Publishing (BMI)

Come To Me 03:59
COME TO ME M. Mosher/K. Proffit Restless minds we run into each other’s arms We try to forget the ones who came before You still wear around your neck the hands of time gone by They won’t ease their grip until you say goodbye, take your time Come to me when the heartbreak’s over And your feelings for her all fade away Come to me when your wounds are healing Cuz you’re all in pieces and I need your soul to come to me whole Struggling to float then you came into view I didn’t know you’d need a life vest too I’ll let you go cuz I can’t go down again Walk through the dark the light is at the end Come to me when the heartbreak’s over And your feelings for her all fade away Come to me when your wounds are healing Cuz you’re all in pieces and I need your soul to come to me whole The past clips by in shades of grey It’s hard to trust another when you feel this way Best to leave it in it’s place Cuz if you don’t it’ll linger on Come to me when the heartbreak’s over And your feelings for her all fade away Come to me when your wounds are healing Cuz you’re all in pieces and I need your soul to come to me whole Come to me when the heartbreak’s over And your feelings for her all fade away Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI)

INTO THE UNKNOWN M. Mosher/K.Proffit There was a man on a motorcycle headed out for the day He took only the clothes he had on and a dream to get away We were driving up the coast, had another show to play When we turned around the bend a row of flares lit our way Up walked a woman and I asked her, anything we can do to help She said no, he’s just laying there, you don’t wanna look, you don’t wanna look You don’t wanna look, you don’t wanna look Then we go into the unknown, then we go into the unknown This man on a motorcycle didn’t plan to die Die alone and found by strangers doing what he thought was right They covered him with a blanket as yellow as the sun His blood on the highway, a sign of things to come Through the trees we heard him calling, you could feel it in the air What happens when I leave this body he was wondering, we were wondering He was wondering, we were wondering Then we go into the unknown, then we go into the unknown We kept driving we couldn’t shake it, we’d never be the same He departed right when we got there, we will join him someday When you’re leaving you might as well go out doing what you love There’s nothing quite like the open road to teach you about love Then we go into the unknown, then we go into the unknown Then we go into the unknown, then we go into the unknown Manda Boo Songs (ASCAP), Kirsten Proffit (BMI)

about

The sophomore release by CALICO the band shows the duo of Kirsten Proffit (KP Hawthorn) and Manda Mosher surrounded by simpatico and similarly skillful members of their musical family versed in the sounds of late 60's California. Hawthorn and Mosher are indigenous inheritors and perpetuators of a rich legacy, and their vision of California unfolds with widescreen Technicolor splendor on Under Blue Skies. Informed by the duo's shared love of Crosby, Stills & Nash, The Eagles, The Everly Brothers, Fleetwood Mac and, of course, the Beatles, their new album is further enriched by the mix, conducted with signature artistry and insightfulness by the renowned Jim Scott (Petty, Wilco).
