lyrics

Barely awake
And the church bells are quiet
There’s too much at steak
To lie hear in the quiet

I guess I was lost
But I found a believer
With dirty blonde hair
She’s an overachiever
And I know why

She told me her secrets
And I buried them with me
And begged her forgiveness
And made her some coffee
And messy is lovely
If you love making messes
She had stars on her sheets and had flowers on her dresses

And I know why…

And all that we see
And the air that we breathe
I’m still wondering
If we could be falling…
Apart.

It’s half past the hour
And it’s half past a lifetime
She still in the shower
Won’t throw me a lifeline
And second crack crazy
Like instant occasions
The hours keep melting
Like forlorn vacations
And I know why…

The glass slipper shattered so I carried her with me
Past canopy’s ashes
And cool papprazzi
Indifferent and callous
And cold like a mountain
We shouted our peace
In the back of that fountain
And I know why…

And all that we see
And the air that we breathe
I’m still wondering
If we could be falling…
Apart.

about

Trick Shooter Social Club Chicago, Illinois

The Trick Shooter Social Club is a place tucked just behind the beat. It’s a belief in the power of story and the sublime hip sway of a well placed middle eight. It’s cat gut, and pick guards and nods across the stage when it's time to go to the bridge. It’s acoustic, electric and reverent to its heroes. It’s artists, gypsies, showmen and shaman trying to get it right. It’s an invitation–to join. ... more
