(Verse 1) Last night I saw The most epic moonrise Standing there alone by your side You'd only just left But I'm missing you still And I can't help but feelin' this way (Chorus) On The cliffs last night Under the full moon light I looked into your eyes But the shadow you cast Is too lonely to last So let's dance together Right where we stand (Verse 2) It was a Super Moon But on the last night It was cloudy, but mostly clear We were casting HUGE shadows Straight into the moon We raced down the cliffs Drinking a beer (Repeat Chorus) (Bridge) Where we stand Time has no meaning Where we're going There is no known But there's this My love for you dear Your my heart Your my angel Your my man (Verse 3) It didn't take all that long Not as long as it should have For Mike is a speedy man In the middle of the night We just saw one other car It was a truck that had a trailor (Repeat Chorus) So let's dance together right where we stand.

Oak Tree 06:11
I'm a Live Oak tree Birds build their home in me Kids climb my branches to see How I see And I'm alive for the day But I don't have much to say A fire burns in me I'm a Live Oak tree (Chorus) And she's my evergreen I can feel her suffering And I know that it's true She takes away my pain Over you And I'm a fallin' oak tree I feel by the axe of greed They came and conquered me I'm a fallin' tree (Repeat Chorus) And I'm a dying oak tree I died so suddenly My death brings falling leaves I'm a dying tree That's how I leave I'm a dying tree That's how I leave

(Verse 1) I don't know if I should sing this song. I'd like to give it back where it comes from. I wake up in the morning and I smoke my sticky bun. And learn to live and learn to lie alone. When I think about you I just wanna die. Stick a needle in my arm and just turn out the lights. I'm winding down the highway drunk, smokin' just to leave my mind. This is how I like to toe the line. (Chorus) It takes WORK! WORK! WORK! To make a lover, of a man made of steel & rubber. But I NEED! THE! LOVE! Inside my belly, I remember how she wore her hair. (Solo) (Verse 2) Well it's been real it's been a real good time. But now we've got to move a little further down the line. Where there's another party waiting for us tonight. And another body to keep me warm inside. Ready, here we go. (Repeat Chorus) (Verse 3) Well I don't mind if we sing this song all night. Well I like the words and the musics tight. There's no telling where we'll end up tonight. I feel something welling up inside. Alright last time. (Repeat Chorus) Yes I remember how she wore her hair.

Shoe String 03:27
(Verse 1) Why are you so cold to me, I've barely had a chance to be-come the man I was born to be, a man that you can trust you'll see. But I was fast and stole your time and with one look I made you mine. But you were still not over him, said to me let's just be friends. (Verse 2) This is just another verse of my undoing and my curse. To be alone and to be sad, destroy myself just like my dad. But I won't forget you though, but I'll force myself to let you go, and do your thing out on your own, shed your skin shoe string I know. (Chorus) Oh LOOK! Here I am. LOOK OUT! Cause here I am. (Verse 3) This is just a melody to help me to get over thee. I'll cry myself to sleep tonight, burn my head to make it right. My heart beats strong my heart beats true. My heart beat says that I love you. But you can't face me I'm like the sun, you won't believe that's its begun. (Repeat Chorus) (Verse 4) Your skin so soft your eyes so blue I have to stop from telling you. That I want you by my side that I want you to be my bride. I've never felt this way before oh I'm so scared we've shut the door and lost our chance for heavens sake, have to know just what you think of . . . (Chorus) ME! Cause here I am. SHOE STRING! THE END

The Journey 02:41
6.
(Verse 1) It's hard to face the day. Now that you've gone away. I'm through with love through with love, but it's alright. When I wake up I'll be drinking from my happy cup. I wonder where you are? With some shinning star? I'm through with love through with love but it's alright. In the evening, I'll be singing such a lovely rhyme. (Chorus) When your running around it's so contrary. I can't count them all there's just too many, it's kinda scary, lovin' you. (Verse 2) (Chatter) Now your back in my arms. Has this gone too far? I'm in love again love again, but I don't mind. Ahhhhhhhh Ahhhhhhhh (Verse 3) This the run around. My heart is on the ground. I'm through with you through with you, but I"ll be fine. (Repeast Chorus) (Verse 4) This my final word, I'm feeling so absurd. I'm through with love through with love through with LOVE! THE END (of love?)
7.
One Kiss 05:20
(Verse 1) Just one kiss stains my lips, and our love grows, like a rose all over me. Breaking bread and drinking wine, will I give it all up or will I fill my cup? Mmmm Mmmmm All this time, he was I know, just letting go, so just let him go. Ewwwww (Chorus) And for reason I can't explain. There's a gun pressed against my brain and I can't out. From your foolish love, has murdered love again. (Verse 2) Now that you know, what your not suppose to know. Will you run away, or will come out and play. Mmm Mmm (Instrumental) Fallin' down to lovin' ground. Gunna sing my song before I'm gone Ewwwwwww (Chorus) And for reasons I can't explain. There's a bullet inside my brain, and I can't get out. From your cruel love, suicidal love again. THE END
8.
Anchor 06:23
(1/2 Chorus Intro) (Verse 1) I just wanted to thank you for taking care of me last night. I guess it's in my blood to get whisked up and ruined once in awhile. Anyway, you were my prince carried me off to your car. Dreaming the ocean that you are. (Chorus) Sail on trusted Anchor. Sail on faithful son. Soon we'll all be makers of the morning soon to come. Oh ride on troubled spirit. Oh ride on the silver moon. Soon we'll all be naked, in the morning soon to come. (Verse 2) Thinking of soft and like the ocean that you are. Dreaming of my moon beam tunnel to take you to the stars. Fast asleep beside you unaware as you drove your car. Drinking from the ocean that you are. (Repeat Chorus)
9.
Wild Child 03:55
(Verse 1) I'm a wild child in the night of Eden. From the bottom of a well where I do my thinking. I reach for the gin, an empty bottle again, and a broken heart and a woman to blame. (Chorus) But now I'm all done thinking, so let's start drinking. I'm all done waiting, for your love. I'm all mixed up, so let's get fucked up, and in the morning I'll be lonesome again. (Instrumental) (Verse 2) a well where I do my thinking. I reach for the gin, an empty bottle again, and a wounded heart and a woman on my mind. (Chorus) bug now I'm all done thinking, so let's start drinking. I'm all done waiting, for your love. I'm all mixed up, so let's get fucked up, and in the morning I'll be lonesome again. THE END! FINI!

about

First official release from Big Sur inhabitant Levi Strom since his self titled debut record in 2005. Many of the tracks were recorded live, some right as they were being written. Levi still plays many of the instruments on The Lone Wolf but this time has some help from his friends in the band Cave Country, and fellow LA musicians Trever Beld-Jiminez and Neal Casal. The record almost plays like a greatest hits, which isn't too surprising considering it's over 5 years of songwriting, but that's not to say The Lone Wolf lacks continuety. Actually, to the contrary, The Lone Wolf plays like a record, I mean from beginning to middle to end it's a real record. Over all this is a soft record, although a few tracks stick out, One Kiss an electro-rock suicide ballad in the vein of 80's New Wave and Wild Child, a raunchy bar room sing along that smells of early Rolling Stones, in a Stromy kinda way! If you want a taste of the many styles Levi is capable of this record will not disappoint, but be warned that once this thing goes in your speakers it may not come out for awhile, at least until the next Strom record is out.
