Lyrics
why not just look away
i can't look you in the eye
letters have come to me
and their words have
turned me dry
there was a river
it was once made out of joy
it turned into the sand
and somehow
swallowed up the boy

letter by letter
they tumble and they drop
the lines fall out
and all the champagne bubbles pop
another day
another sad sad start
until the love
becomes a hurt

when there is silence
there is something just like peace
somehow it turned into
a very quiet foot race
before the birds and all the flowers
lose their grace
and all the perfect moments
become the hey hey hey
somebody help me.

letter by letter
they tumble and they drop
the lines fall out
and all the champagne bubbles pop
another day another sad sad start
until the love
becomes a hurt.....

This rocks! Love the strumming acoustic guitar. Great layering of electrics as well. Very strong vocal. Downloaded!

well done
very well-produced. The vocals are really gritty, I dig it. The synth works really well in tandem with the heavy guitar. Really good work.

The vocals stand out in this one for me, nice job. The vibe reminds me of the Smithereens. Good imagery in the lyric "there was a river
it was once made out of joy"

One of the best MJ new artist discoveries I've made yet.
Yeah, "I discovered you," haha... after everyone else who heard you and digs you, that is. After I heard "She Lives in London," I made you a Favorite Artist. This has a very different sound, but you're jsut so damn solid, love your words, voice, music, playing... blah, blah...

thx, of course, it all came to me in a dream, i feel actually that i co-wrote it with spalding gray, as it is about him, and in my semi-wakened state, we haggled over the poignant details, this happening after he had passed away.
