WSP_0038_Up Through the Floor

from by Jonathan Burks



all of my ex-girlfriends are getting married
or about to, at least so it seems
I can honestly say I'm happy for them
and I'm glad that they aint marrying me

all of my friends are having babies
putting down roots, growing up the family tree
I can honesty say I'm happy for them
and someday lord I hope the same for me

it's a long low lonesome sidewalk
I find my toes stepping upon
I'm growing on the sides and in the cracks of it
towards the light lord, up thru the floor

stage is my home, road is my oxygen
song is the atom that constructs my world
if I'm on the wrong path I don't intend to get off of it
gonna see how that horizon unfurls

Hi there. You can sign up for my mailing list here:

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!
