Yeah I know. Again with the songs.

1 Oct

I am fully and completely aware that I keep posting song lyrics. But really I have to do it again. This song kept running through my mind last night and I couldn’t stop humming it as I went to sleep last night and, lo and behold, this morning when I woke up it was still in my head. I think I’ve listened to it about 17 times today, but I just can’t get enough.

I don’t know what it is about Songs: Ohia, but they have a song for everything. I haven’t even reached the tip of the iceberg in discovering their music, but I absolutely love it.

Here it is —

JUST BE SIMPLE
by: Songs: Ohia

You’ll never hear me talk about
one day getting out.
Why put a new address
on the same old loneliness.

Everybody knows where that is.
We built that house of his
and when he’s not home,
Someone else we know always is.

If Heaven’s really coming back
I hope it has a heart attack
When they see how dangerous
it is for guys like that

And the night has always known
when it’s time to get going
When it’s really been so long
that it starts showing

It’s always had that ghost who always almost
tells me the secret.
How there’s really no difference
in who he was once,
and who he’s become

I think he’s been letting me win
And I think he’s doing it again
Thanks for letting me win

And everything you hated me for,
Honey there was so much more.
I just didn’t get busted.

I ain’t looking for that easy way out
This whole life it’s been about
Try and try and try
And try and try and try
To be simple again

XXX

For the next week I will be busy – don’t expect much from me.
