voidcalledwendy I think the description of the album nails it quite right. The lyrics of the album in combination with the music are pure bliss. They show how much fun one can have with language, english language in this particular case. Favorite track: How Hard It Is For a Desert to Die.

Mark Love this new album from Jeff Tweedy. It has the melodic simplicity and catchiness of Uncle Tupelo and Wilco's early records, but with songwriting by a seasoned hand, someone who is emerging on the other side of middle age -- kids raised and out of the house, distractions receding, and existential questions front-and-center. Favorite track: Don't Forget.

jmurder187 Fun stuff. Better then then my expectation of a side project. Not exactly up there w the towering heights of Wilco's best 4 or 5 all
Timers but a listen I play often enough and enjoy thoroughly

Bombs Above 02:15
All my life I’ve played a part In the bombs above The ones you love I’m taking a moment to apologize I should have done more To stop the war So I’m sorry I leave behind A trail of songs From the darkest gloom To the brightest sun I’ve lost my way But it’s hard to say What I’ve been through Should matter to you A man so drunk He could hardly stand Told me once Holding my hand Suffering is the same For everyone He was right But I was wrong To agree Ahh ahh ahh ahh Ahh

Some Birds 03:41
Some birds Just sit Useless Like fists I wrestle On TV But no one ever Let’s me win I lean On the wall Like a broom Confused By the scope Of it all Any fool Can tell the truth And no I don’t Think that I should Add one To the sum Of all that you fear I’d love to take you down And leave you there In my window I have a twin I look out He looks in He has a point I applaud Oh my goodness Oh my god Is it my fault The countrysides Are so full Of suicide? I break bricks With my heart But only a fool Would call it art. No I don’t Think I should Be one Of the sum Of all that you fear I’d love to take you down And leave you there So why fuss Why not bend Like a nail Hammered in Times are tough If I recall Oh it ain’t easy No not at all And no I don’t Think I should Complete The sum Of all the you fear I’d love to take you down And leave you there

Don't Forget 03:30
Don’t forget Don’t forget you’ve got a key Yeah a cosmic key Oh I love you so much Don’t forget We’re all blowing in The interstellar wind I’m your little galaxy Don’t forget Don’t forget sometimes We all We all think about dying Don’t let it kill you Don’t forget I won’t forget the long drive We arrived in time to say goodbye And the way my roses shook I won’t overlook The willows bending by the graves The very next day in the shade Sweating in a new suit I don’t regret I don’t regret sometimes We all We all think about dying Don’t let it kill you Don’t forget Don’t forget to brush your teeth Or you’ll have a funny smile You don’t have to smile at me Don’t forget Don’t forget sometimes We all We all think about dying Don’t let it kill you Don’t forget Don’t forget sometimes We all We all think about dying Oh

I hear your laugh in my laughter An old photograph I’ve never seen Where each set of eyes finds a different camera Shining like the sun on the rain I follow the wires to the horizon There’s zero chance I’m going to cry I think that fame is a misunderstanding How hard is it for a desert to die
5.
Oh I’ve heard about Noah’s flood Washed away a world of sin Some say destruction is an act of love And think it should happen again Let’s go rain Let’s go rain Again Let’s go rain Let’s go rain Again Once upon a time I was a Christian I didn’t know I didn’t need to know Now when the sky speaks I’m going to listen And when it’s pissing I’ll just figure I’m alone Let’s go rain Let’s go rain Again Cmon rain Let’s go rain Again Oh I should Build a wooden ark Wouldn’t you rather live On an ocean of guitars Aw c’mon rain Let’s go rain Again Let’s go rain Let’s go rain Again Oooooh oooh ooh Aah aah aaah Maybe you’re not a believer Or maybe you don’t have a choice Or maybe it’s a fever that you haven’t caught yet ‘Cause you haven’t met Scott McCaughey Let’s go rain Let’s go rain Again Still no rain Let’s go rain Again

From outer space I am you At distances You’re me too From far away I assume Everything Needs less room My ribs are turned Like parentheses And my lips have learned What I don’t believe Could I Find a world just right Or will I Always search too high If I die Don’t bury me Rattle me down Like an old machine Take my books And my magazines My photographs Of you and me Everything I won’t need

Far away From the fireworks display Quiet and bright I know what it’s like x 3 To not feel love When a sunny day Starts to rain Keep me in mind I know what it’s like x 3 Even when I’m wide awake I keep turning back one page I can’t find the plot Something else is taking shape I know what it’s like To keep losing your place My shadow stays Even when I’m miles away Waiting outside I know what it’s like x 3 To not feel pain When the lights are dim In my window I have a twin I’m always looking out And he’s always looking in I know what it’s like Starting over again I know what it’s like x 2 To not feel love Far way From the fireworks display Quiet and bright I know what it’s like x 3 To not feel love Even when it’s years away I still think it’s yesterday I can’t find the plot Something else is taking shape I know it’s a lie When you say it’s ok I know what it’s like x 9 To not feel love I know what it’s like To not feel love

Oh I was naive My shoes were untied In heaven everything is just fine But the phones are dead And so is the light And so are you And honey so am I But the earth still turns For the unconcerned Days pass below like train windows I was a sapling tree The birds looked like me So I begged my nerves to kick me something new From time to time I’d watch you sleep I wonder how much freedom we can dream And I’m sorry when you wake up to me I just got tired Shining steady like a spider web Is an empty stage Now people say What drugs did you take And why don’t you start taking them again? But they’re not my friends And if I was dead What difference would it ever make to them If I got high From time to time I wonder how much freedom you would need And I’d be sorry when you wake to me I’m reaching out to you I’m writing all the time I don’t see deep but I see far and wide I see dead trees But the roots have leaves Just because I can’t describe it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t try To untwist the knife To unmake my mind Having been is no way to be alive And I’m alive When I watch you sleep I wonder how much freedom we need And I’m here When you wake up to me I’m still here When you wake up to me
9.
My lonely said to me Love won’t show It’s a cold case You’re never going to close Oh I could never let it go Oh I could never let it go So I drank myself Back into your life And I cried On the yellow telephone Oh I could never let it go Oh I could never let it go Then I aimed my scope Out a broken window I could feel it in my bones Oh I could never let it go Oh I could never let you go
10.
Please take my advice Worry into your song Grow away from your anger Distance belongs Oh I don’t believe in heaven I keep some heat inside Like a red brick in the summer Warm when the sun has died
11.
How will I find you? How will I find you? I don’t know I don’t know How will I find you? I don’t know I don’t know You will know You will know How will I find you? How will I find you? I don’t know I don’t know How will I find you? I don’t know I don’t know You will know You will know

about

“Certain lyrical flowers sprout up with regularity across the ten song-yards that are this record. A son who has lost a father sings to his wife, his sons, that father. There are apologies, and mirror-twins; threats to enemies (‘I’d love to take you down / and leave you there’) and entreaties (‘Let’s go rain again!’) and dreamy challenges (‘I wonder how much freedom we can dream’) and ornery morphings of language that serve a simple function: they make the listener love language again.”
– George Saunders, Liner Notes for Jeff Tweedy’s WARM

Warm is a solo album of all new material, produced and recorded entirely by Jeff at Chicago’s now legendary studio, The Loft (with help from some of his usual collaborators – Spencer Tweedy, Glenn Kotche and Tom Schick). WARM follows the acoustic retrospective release, Together at Last (2017), and Wilco’s 2016 album, Schmilco.
