about

Kim Richey is someone I've admired for a long time and one day, not long after she moved back to Nashville from London, we wrote this song together. It's definitely the first song in which I've ever used the words “Post-Modern Discontent”. Chronic discontent, the proverbial itch you can't scratch, the vague hollowness you feel when you realize that for every one thing you experience or do in this world there are a billion more you can't possibly fit in to one lifetime. “That Next Thing”, for me represents the longing for the thing you chase, that relentless restlessness of the human spirit. I don't know if everyone feels it as strongly as I do. Give me the open road, a motorcycle, a rusted Volkswagen, a train to Amsterdam, all the usual clichés. I need that to stay alive. I think many people get that.

lyrics

One more hotel, one more restless night
A part of me is never satisfied
Call it human nature, post-modern discontent
Call it what you will

I'm always lookin' for that next thing
Reachin' for that next thing
But once I've got it in my hands
It always turns to sand
And I'm lookin' for that next thing

Under streetlights past the diner sign
Open all night just to pass the time
Another cup of coffee
The rain against the window
Starin' off into the night

I'm always lookin' for that next thing
Reachin' for that next thing
But once I've got it in my hands
It always turns to sand
And I'm lookin' for that next thing
