lyrics

When the sum of excess
Adds up to not quite enough.
I go to find you,
But you always win at blindman’s bluff.
You find your center
At the ragged edge of town.
I never could quite enter,
Couldn’t follow you down.

You live by sleight of hand.
I never know where you stand.
Don’t look ahead, no master plan.
Get through each day by sleight of hand.

When the price of sadness
Is more than you can bear to pay.
When you think that it might bind you,
You find another card to play.
You find your center
At the ragged edge of town.
I never could quite enter,
Couldn’t follow you down.

You live by sleight of hand.
I never know where you stand.
Don’t look ahead, no master plan.
Get through each day by sleight of hand.

Jeff and Maya Bohnhoff San Jose, California

Jeff and Maya have an identity crisis. Their music is sometimes uproariously funny parody (like their spot-on "Bohemian Rhapsody" parody "Midichlorian Rhapsody", or hauntingly beautiful, like "Road to Jerusalem" or "Manhattan Sleeps". One way or another, their music will create strong emotions. Jeff and Maya have been creating music together since 1979, and plan to continue for some time to come. ... more
