about

The music of Tim Pourbaix (pronounced ‘pour-bay’) is that secret worth sharing. That rare artist, whose voice and songcraft sound instantly familiar. A master solo performer from the backroom parlors of Brooklyn steps forward with a fully articulated, fourteen song, full-band masterpiece entitled, ‘River Well’. Simply elegant in their construction, Tim’s songs paint a dreamscape worth multiple visits.

Track Name: Chapters
I stepped inside my own self
Feels just like an old house I used to know

All the ways chapters come and go out to space
I love that you want to know
But I won't tell a soul
Not even my own

I rearranged an old shelf
In the bedroom of my younger self
I wandered on my own
Through all the in-betweens I used to be

All the ways chapters come and go out to space
I love that you want to know
But I won't tell a soul
Not even my own

All the ways chapters come and go out to space
I love that you want to know
But I won't tell a soul
Not even my own
Track Name: Dollar Bill
Do you have it in you to say the things you need to?
Right out in the open your mouth is glowing
It starts a fire that rises slowly
With every moment that lasts a second too long

What you have is what you will
I write it down on a dollar bill
Send it out into the world
I hold it now to its words

Did you ever notice all the things around us?
Right out in the open floats out of nowhere
It starts a fire that rises slowly
With every moment that lasts a second too long

What you have is what you will
I write it down on a dollar bill
Sent it out into the world
I hold it now to its words

I won't forget

What you have is what you will
I write it down on a dollar bill
Sent it out into the world
I hold it now to its words

I won't forget
Track Name: The Runaway
Light jog around the block
All the places I used to walk
Up in thin air you went
I can't lose what is already lost

The runaway
Let me tell you something good
Let me write ii on your walls
Before I leave here
When you get this I'll be gone
Never meant to stay this long
The runaway
Let me tell you something good
Let me write it on your walls
Before I leave here
The runaway is good
Never brings me where it should

Just keep on laughing like nothing happened
I'll keep walking like you weren't laughing

Coasting down avenues
That never meant to end
Solo in the wind
Never looking back wish you could

The runaway
Let me tell you something good
Let me write it on your walls
Before I leave here
When you get this I'll be gone
Never meant to stay this long
The runaway
Let me tell you something good
Let me write it on your walls
Before I leave here
The runaway is good
Never brings me where it should
Track Name: Party Dress
Oh my my oh hell yes
Timmy put on that party dress
Oh my my oh good hell
Why does it always have to fit so well?

You wrap around me in my coat
I find you right beside me
When I'm heading home

Oh my my oh hell yes
If I show up I show up a mess
Oh my my oh hell no
Never say goodbye before I go

You wrap around me in my coat
I find you right beside me
When I'm heading home

You wrap around me in my coat
I find you right beside me
When I'm heading home
Track Name: Police Tape
Hear him through
Paper walls
Begin to lose his shit
The cops were called
Not by me
They drag him out
Into the street

I step out to see
They strap him to
A gurney
I stare at him
He stares at me
Teeth grinding
He starts to spit
But I don't spit back

This time
Track Name: Poets in the Page
Just put the pen down and use words for now
That won't rewind unless you do too

Poets in the pages roam
Before dawn
What we had was good
What we had was gold

I see the look in my own eyes
That means trouble and if you do too

Poets in the pages roam
Before dawn
What we had was good
What we had was gold
Before long
Bibles and the Song of Songs
Will be gone
But what we had was good
What we had was gold

Poets in the pages roam
Before dawn
What we had was good
What we had was gold
Before long
Bibles and the Song of Songs
Will be gone
But what we had was good
What we had was gold
Track Name: Night Lights
Oh my God what did you tell her?
I didn't hear that let me hear it again

Right when things should've been easy
Got to row my mouth
Right when she needed to kiss me
Got to row my mouth

Before you go leave a note
With your toes in the dirt

Got to get back where I was
Got to get back to my love

Right when things should've been easy
Got to roll my mouth
Right when she needed to kiss me
Got to roll my mouth

Before you go leave a note
With your toes in the dirt

Are you on the night?
Are you on the night?
Are you on the night?
Are you on the night light’s side?
Are you on the night light’s side?
Are you on the night light’s side
Or are you on mine?
Are you on the night light’s side?
Are you on the night light’s side?
Or are you on mine?

Before you go leave a note
With your toes in the dirt
Track Name: No Rooms
Did you speak your mind?
Or did I cut you off?
The sun was in your eyes
I used my shadow block it out

There is no room for doubt in here
Not even for the minute
There is no room for doubt in here
Not even for the minute I'm over over-thinking

Did you get out that way?
I'll meet you down in East L.A.
Did you finally figure out?
To do run run and do without

There is no room for doubt in here
Not even for the minute
There is no room for doubt in here
Not even for the minute I'm over over-thinking

I'm over over-thinking
Not even for a minute
I'm over over-thinking
Track Name: The Smoke
The smoke I cover up with is dark grey
My walk home is a little cold I still take it nice and slow
Happen down a street I've never walked with these feet
Till I find someone I know with eyes unfocused

Is there something I'm gonna miss?
If only my eyes can always play these

Sundown's feels like summer it's not now
Leave your bikes and cars at home
And take a walk into the unknown
Make this evening early morning all my own

Is there something I'm gonna miss?
If only my eyes can always play these

Is there something I'm gonna miss?
If only my eyes can always play these tricks
Track Name: Call Me Out
You know my routes I get scared when you call me out
My hands leave steady, steady leaves my hands

I throw my doubt across the room when you call me out
The landings a little off and too late to take back

How should I know what you're made of?
How should I know what you're made of?

You know my games and how the rules change
From day to day I trick myself like anyone else before the secrets out

You stole my moves I see you stumbling through the room
Right for me my eyes lock on him I stand tall and I start swinging

How should I know what you're made of?
How should I know what you'r made of?

How should I know what you're made of?
How should I know what you'r made of?
Track Name: Take Notes
Go where you need to go
For several weeks of shows
I seen you right there yesterday
I seen you right there yesterday

Don't blame it on the shows
Or hold them too close
I seen you right there yesterday
I seen you right there yesterday

Don't run down roads you don't need to go
When you fall down take down really good notes

Say what you got to say to me
We're leaving later today
I seen you right there yesterday
I seen you right there yesterday

We won't go where we can't
Never come back
I seen you right there yesterday
I seen you right there yesterday

Don't run down roads you don't need to go
When you fall down take down really good notes
Fall out between you and what's close
Take down, take down really good notes

Don't run down roads you don't need to go
When you fall down take down really good notes
Fall out between you and what's close
Take down, take down really good notes
Track Name: Happy
I warmed you, we were freezing
Are you happy with your happy?

All at once you sense a void
It came right up and you made your choice
Just what was the mistake?
You may go but never leave
I stitch you on my pajama sleeve
Before I go to sleep

I warmed you, we were freezing
Are you happy with your happy?

The apparition that you see
Reflecting back isn't me
But the spirit in your drinks
I drift when I dream
To all the right places it always seems
The closer you are to me

I warmed you we were freezing
Are you happy with your happy?

I warmed you we were freezing
With what little we had on
Are you happy with your happy?
Track Name: The Wreck
When you go out I don't ask you a thing
The lines in your face are easy to read

You got to let me
Know, know, know
Before you wreck me

When I go out I expect the same
The lines in my face you easy to read

When I go down I take my swing
Even if I don't hit a thing

You got to let me
Know, know, know
Before you wreck me

You got to let me
Know, know, know
Before you wreck me
Track Name: The River Well
When did you take down that wall?
Built it up inside you for so long
Funny how you stand tall now and you know no sway
Back and forth so easily

I don't believe you no not a word
Even my eyes come out slurred
In the end we'll kiss and tell
Who is the river and who is the well?

I could learn something from you
The way you do things I've never seen done before
I know just the right place
To wake up in case this is a dream

I won't believe you no not a word
Even my eyes come out slurred
But in the end we'll kiss and tell
Who is the river and who is the well?

I won't believe you no not a word
Even my lies come out blurred
But in the end we'll kiss and tell
Who is the river and who is the well?
