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
Track Name: Dollar Bill
Do you have it in you
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 wont 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 in 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 in 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 in 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 in 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
Track Name: Police Tape
Hear him through
Paper walls
Begin to lose his shit
The cops were called
Not by me
They dragged him out
Into the street

I step out to see
They strapped him to
A gurney
And I stared 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
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 light side
Are you on the night lights side
Or are you on mine
Are you on the night light side
Are you on the night lights 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 sundowns
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 your made of
How should I know
What your made of

You know my games
How the rules change
From day to day
I trick myself
Like anyone else before the secrets
You stole my moves
See you stumbling through the room
Right for me
My Eyes lock on him
Stand tall and I start swinging

How should I know
What your made of

How should I know
What your made of
How should I know
What your made of
Track Name: Take Notes
Go where you need to go
For several weeks of shows

I seen you right there yesterday

Don't blame it on the shows
Or hold them to close

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

We won't go where we can't
Never come back

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
Track Name: Happy
I warmed to you
We were freezing
Are you happy
With your happy

All at once
You sense a void
It came right up
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 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 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
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 slurred
But in the end
We'll kiss and tell
Who is the river
And who is the well
