about

"All I Can Share is Photos" from the album "At Home at Sea"

A travelogue through Chile and a song about the vagaries of travel — especially travel with a broken heart. The recording features Mario M. Noche on guitar who previously played the song as part of EGPhest II in a similar bossa nova style.

Premiered Jun 10th on Americana UK where Jonathan Aird describes the track as "singer-songwriter folk shot through with a cocktail jazz sensibility"

lyrics

Under the custard-colored crescent of an Andean moon
A jazz quartet performs a Harold Arlen tune
In the sculpture garden
On the other side
Of the constant flow
Of the Rio Mapocho

I carry you wherever I go
In my salt encrusted shoes
But in the end the truth is
All I can share is photos

Visit Laguna Chaxa, don’t disturb the flamingos
Ride funiculars in Valpo, order a pastel de choclo
I keep being awoken
In the dead of night
By barking stray dogs
Out chasing cars

I carry you wherever I go
In my salt encrusted shoes
But in the end the truth is
All I can share is photos

It’s a disorienting feeling to be suddenly back home
Was it just a dream already scattered to places unknown?
Was it even worth
Coming back?
I see you from afar
And blow you a kiss…

I carry you wherever I go
In my salt encrusted shoes
But in the end the truth is
All I can share is photos
