Hope Springs Temperamental

lyrics

once the words came to me now I'm chasing around
all these lame and useless verbs and nouns
I might be lost, I might be found
I'm a square, the earth is round

over around the bend good lord it never ends
they say hope springs eternal but she always been
my fair weathered friend

I had it all and threw it away
not just once but over and over again
I must be lost, I must be found
the sky was so soft, hard is the ground

all this syn tax ing my brain
all in all I aint got nothing to say
I might be lost but not too lost to find
a melody and some bull to ride

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here: eepurl.com/bcruFT

I post a song once a week on Tuesdays. If I've just finished a song I'll record a rough demo and put it up. Sometimes its live recordings or weird electro collages. I also make a video most weeks using public domain footage. Check it out!

Thanks for taking the time to check out my music!

Jon
