I guess you could say My tall bedroom walls Don't know color at all They've never seen the fall I won't run away When leaves start fall And leave shadows on my walls As all that remains of you Of you So if it's okay With my bedroom walls Who once and for all Will finally face the fall Well, I'll ask them to stay And I'll reach up so tall I bought wallpaper To cover all of the shadows of you The shadows of you And I'll see That the ceiling Won't reflect all the times I chose to ignore All the should-bes And the could-bes And I'll make sure Maybe doesn't mean yes anymore So I guess you could say The twilight this fall Won't cast shadows at all On my tall bedroom walls But as much as I say That the colors this fall On my wallpaper Will cover all of you It might be okay If a bit of you stays on me If your shadow stays on _________________________________________________

On October 9, 1970, the BBC aired Joni Mitchell in Concert, an intimate and acoustic portrait that spotlighted several of her career-defining songs, including “Chelsea Morning,” “Big Yellow Taxi,” and “Both Sides Now.” In his 54 Below debut, up-and-coming singer/songwriter Blake Pfeil set up a challenge for himself: to pen and perform a new song as a mirrored response to each of the songs sung by Ms. Mitchell during the famed BBC broadcast. An eclectic walk between the realms of folk and pop, Mr. Pfeil’s theatrically-charged melodic and poetic sensibilities weave a modern tapestry that examines humanity’s continued search for joy. The evening was co-conceived and directed by Ms. Sharone Halevy, in her subsequent 54 Below debut.
