about

A soulful blend of minimalistic alt country, Americana, folk and blues.

lyrics

Been shot up and pushed around
beat black and blue left on the ground
like that stupid dog I'll be back for more
I'm my own worst enemy
hamstrung by my loyalty
doing good don't always make it right

I'll be up there some day
until then I'm down here drinking my youth away

Ain't no one got no sympathy
for alcohol fuelled tragedy
I made my bed and I'll sleep tonight
I'll set fire to ghosts today
watch them all float away
back into the nothing they came from

I'll be up there some day
until then I'm down here drinking my youth away

Don't know why I sing the blues
I got more than most folks do...
