Station Song

from by Jonathan Burks

lyrics

walk me down to the station
see me off down the line
give me a hug and a kiss
but honey don't you cry

aint no sense to sit and wonder
or cry and blubber over me
there's other fish in the forest
and this monkey's out to see

I'll be down in the darkness fumbling
searching for my missing spark
as the moth takes to the flame
so flies my heart

there's a howling ache gnawing
on the marrow of my soul
if I stay i'm bound to break
break like brittle bones

so won't you walk me down to the station
see me off down the line
give me a hug and a kiss
but honey don't you cry

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
