New Music Tuesday

They say his songs are mushy and that he's dopey, but why wouldn't the son of Kenny Loggins have a few truly heartfelt lyrics on his Tuesday release Time to Move? Yesterday, Crosby Loggins released his first solo album and for all that has been released in the past month, including the sophomore releases of Rob Thomas and Daughtry, Time to Move seems both able to compete on today's pop/rock scene and worthy of a listen. Don't let his winning of Cradle of Rock on MTV scare you away--he isn't the usual reality show, son-of-a-celebrity type. A sampling of Time to Move, here are the lyrics from the title song:

I'm bouncing off the walls tonight
Drunken heart, sunken eyes
It's 3 am, I'm tangled up over you
Lying on a burning bed
I think too much, it hurts my head
But there's a light that's shining through

I left you lonely, if I could only have
A chance to prove
I could love you for who you are
Do you feel you're giving something
But getting nothing
Imade you wait for long enough
Come on it's time to move

I've had time enough to know
Changed my mind, I can show you
I'll be true, if you will just
Take me back
I'm not about to give up yet
If there's a chance, I won't quit
I'll do what it takes to get through

Left you lonely, if I could only
Have a chance to prove
That I could love you for who you are
Do you feel you're giving something
But getting nothing
I made you wait for long enough now
Come on it's time to move

Bouncing off the walls again
A different light is pouring in now
I can see I'll never be
The way I was when I found you

I left you lonely, if I could only
Have the chance to prove
That I could love you for who you are
Do you feel you're giving something
And getting nothing
I'd like to try to make it all up to you

I left you lonely, if I could only
Have the chance to prove
I could like you for who you are
Do you feel you're giving something
And getting nothing
I made you wait for long enough
So come on it's time to move

I downloaded this single from iTunes around 10pm (MST) when Tuesday's new releases hit the iTunes stores and since then I've listened to the song thirty-seven times. Yes, it's that good. I haven't downloaded the rest of the album, yet, but I plan to in the next few days. I hear his single "Seriously" is even better than the title track.
