What If Love

paraleipsis: A passing over with brief mention so as to emphasize the suggestiveness of what is omitted. What If Love was recorded in 1997, and contains ballads and story-telling songs. The title song is a meditation on unconditional love.

"When You're In Love" and "Not Going to Tell You" are songs of broken hearts.

"A Very High Place" describes wandering through the landscape of artistic inspiration. "Valley Road" is homage to Highway 395 through California's eastern desert.

"Laundromat Girl" is an enigmatic, inexplicable character sketch designed as a sing-along where all notes are harmonically permissible.
