about

During 5 years of on and off travel throughout Asia, and South America, Corry collected sounds of city bustle, rural life in the Amazon rainforest, and the muffled conversations of family and lovers.

In Wandering Man, he spins these snippets of life into songs of love, heartbreak, travel, and hope, while fusing elements of pop, jazz and folk to create a deep, diverse sound.

Track Name: Humboldt Park
You flew home to Humboldt Park
Chicago called your name
I stayed in this little town and here I will remain
Is there a way to redesign this map, so your state touches mine
Cause distance is unkind

We met by the riverside and learned each-others names
Oh I wish that you had stayed for more than just three days
Is there a way to redesign this map, so your state touches mine
Cause distance is unkind

Is there a way to redesign this map, so your hand touches mine
Cause distance is unkind
Cause distance is unkind
Cause distance is unkind
Cause distance is unkind
Track Name: Meet with You
I have trouble saying no to your good heart
So instead I'll hold it gently in the dark
I have trouble saying yes to solitude
So instead I'll find a time to meet with you
And I know we said goodbye months ago so I'll try not to
I'll try not to
Meet with you

I have trouble letting words escape my mouth
To say my heart is going through its longest drought
I have trouble even laying here with you
I fear you'll learn about the other lover soon
And I know we said goodbye months ago so I'll try not to
I'll try not to
Meet with you but still I do

So you'll come over and ask to stay the night
Before I answer you turn out the lights
And when the morning comes I put up my guard again
When the morning comes we return to discontent

I'll try not to I'll try not to
I'll try not to I'll try not to
And I know we said goodbye months ago so I'll try not to
I'll try not to
Meet with you
But still I do
Still I do
Meet with you
Track Name: City Lights
She left in the evening
All dressed in white
The stars were stinging shivering bright
And while the train cars pulled her southbound
I hoped her window view was downtown

On the city lights

Though she's long gone now
I feel her here
In the bed we laid in and the empty beers
And when I closed the door behind her
I knew she'd go back to her lover

In the city lights

The city lights her up like how she used to be
When she lived with me
But now all she ever sees are her
City lights
Track Name: A New Goodbye
I took a plane to a place
where you can't reach me
I thought that I could escape
From your hidden intentions
But then with my bags in my hands
Heading back home
I knew that I hadn't planned
To be missing you dearly
Wishing you could be near me cause

You are always halfway in my heart and halfway in the darkness
You are always halfway in my heart and halfway to the start of
A new goodbye

Now that I'm back in New York
I'm thinking of you
Dragging my feet to your door
With my hopes of reunion
And I can't refuse them cause

You are always halfway in my heart and halfway in the darkness
You are always halfway in my heart and halfway to the start
Of a new goodbye

You are always halfway in my heart and halfway in the darkness
You are always
Always
Always
Track Name: Through the Gap
I leave the latch undone
And wait for you to walk on through that door
I know that you might not
But still I hope you'll walk on through that door
That door
That door

That old window has broken blinds
Broken blinds that don't quite reach the floor
And through the gap I see
Your checkered shoes standing at my door
My door
My door

My door has been opened by many before
All of the others tracked dirt on the floor
But you I adored
Adored
Adored

That door that door that door
I leave the latch undone and wait for you
Track Name: Wandering Man
I am a wandering man
I throw ropes to distant lands
And walk on them across the sea
I am a wandering man

I am a travelling man
To Saigon from my homeland
The people here all stare at me
They know I am a travelling man

Its starts when I buckle in
The pilot tells us how far till we land
I read the magazines
The wings start to expand
To expand

Humans such a curious clan
With bird wings on metal cans
And I can't think of a better time

To be a curious man
To be a travelling man
To be a wandering man
