weekly Song Post number 175
'Quiet Desperation'

lyrics

I got piss poor life skills
for a grown-ass man
honey I aint as tall
as you think I am

quiet desperation throwing 'round its weight
got me dancing a side-step shuffle
down this load bearing plank

time waits for no one
every man got needs
there's somebody else
that I have to be

quiet desperation loosing its restraint
floating on the surface tension
held taut behind her face

I suppose I should have seen it coming
how could I know it would be as sweet as this

every pause and mis-step
have brought me here
every finish line
don't bring only cheer

quiet desperation got nothing left to say
I hear between the lines
crawling 'round the page

I suppose I should have seen it coming
how could I know it would be as sweet as this

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
