Stumble Down

lyrics

I know regret is just a waste of breath
but self-pity has got me
wishing I could change the past
don't know what you got till it's gone
I really hate that cliche
it keeps on punching me in my face

as we stumble down the after-bar streets
drunken angels arm in arm
shout to the sun coming up
'here we are and there we go again'
you throw your head back and laugh

nostalgia's a wicked drug
helps you cling to broken love
keeps you thinking about the way things used to be
if I don't watch myself I drift
to 3 a.m. Riverwest porch-steps
where I'm throwing rocks up at your window

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
