lyrics

In the brevity of the moment she stood like a brick wall
I fumbled to find some logic but only found I was not logical
Must be why I offered her kisses to which she refused them all
As I recall As I recall

Everybody’s on pins and needles waiting for the wound nurse to arrive
Working on crossword puzzles and counting up who’s still alive
All down through the corridor the fragrance was so medical
As I recall As I recall

And if I remember correctly she was staring directly at me
I can arouse exactly the colour of the taxi that set her free

Pornographic sidewalk chalk drawing censored by the rain
With lady luck on our side there was nothing really left there to explain
Why oh why when the hammer came falling did I not get up and crawl
I can’t recall No, I can’t recall

If I remember correctly she was staring directly at me
I can arouse exactly the number of the taxi that set her free
Except from my memory
My memory
My memory
As I Recall

about

the james clark institute Toronto, Ontario

With a wink and a nod to the Clarke Institute of Psychiatry in Toronto (now CAMH), The James Clark Institute is the musical guise for singer and songwriter James Clark. Confronting the ghosts of his past, James spins his personal demons into witty, well-crafted pop-folk/rock tunes.

His writing is inspired by the works of Ray Davies, Elvis Costello, Bob Dylan and Michael Nesmith to name a few.
