"How Did You Find Me Here?" has been one of my "car tapes" lately. Boy, I think he's first rate. I've had this tape for years and just recently grabbed it as something to listen to while driving. Lovely guitar work and composition. His lyrics aren't too shabby either. His voice is only middle rate, but certainly adequate to the task. It's got a wry lilt to it that fits with the rest of the package.

I've only listened to this one tape, and will occasionally run across something different of his on the radio. Any recommendations for other work by him?

We are his B-I-G-G-E-S-T fans, and drove a few hours (plus a ferry trip!) to hear him in concert recently. AMAZING lyricist. We even did a road trip to East Asheville, NC because of one of his songs!!

We also found out he is not the only David Wilcox musician. Turns out there's also a Canadian David Wilcox who's all about the rock'n'roll.

We love ALL of his stuff that we have.

You traveled from Victoria, BC to North Carolina just to hear him in concert? I like him, a lot, but them's some miles to go to a concert, sister.

How Did You Find Me Here?

Tonight I fell in sorrow
And knew I was alone
A dozen good time friendships
But my heart is still unknown
I thought I saw your footsteps
In the sand along the shore
And I mumbled empty phrases that sang so well before

Now inches from the water - about to disappear
I feel you behind me, but how did you find me here?

I couldn't reach for rescue
I hid myself from view
I couldn't stand to see me
From your point of view
Cause I knew I'd disappoint you
If I showed to you this child
Who is crying out inside me, lost in the wild

Now inches from the water
About to disapper
I feel you behind me
But how did you find me here?
I feel you behind me...

Laughing in the water
Wash away the tears
I feel you behind me
But how did you find me here?
I feel you behind me
But how did you find me here?

The other David Wilcox looks like Dr. Evil and plays here about once a year.
