lyrics

aint no wrong side of the bed
when you're waking up warm and fed
set of lungs pumping breath
arm around your chest

aint no star that shines
longer than a finite time
you get one go around
feet barely touch the ground

and you're gone and you're dead

I never been one to rise
with hope singing out my eyes
but I'm learning to shift
my temperament a bit

I been above, I been below
I been flush, I been flat broke
sometimes this life just floats
other times it don't

I never been one to rise
with hope singing out my eyes
but I'm learning to shift
my temperament a bit

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
