Let's Rewind 02:29
I feel in love but let's rewind to where it started A sight for sore eyes she came walking up to see me When I was out amongst the crowd I tried half hearted You came easy to me Easy to me And that was all I fell in love but let's rewind to where it started She laid a dose on me that you could not believe When I was stricken by the loss of love departed You came easy to me Easy to me And that was all I sit around and waste my time I cross my heart and hope to die I said it all before I'll say it every time you came easy to me

I'm on my back and laughing I can hardly get through the verse Bleed out. You're very important. I can hardly think of anything worse Checked out of a checked out culture I'm locked in and I feel alright. Happiness is a real tall order. My kind's in short supply. Gone are the words that are on my lips. Gone are the only words on my lips. Gone are the words that are on my lips. Trailing off. A careful thought. A lashing tong. I smile it's a stupid question All I don't know can't hurt I don't see why it's very important. I can hardly think of anything worse Throw away your throwaway culture I'm pulling off to the side. Take Burroughs as a prime example My kind's in short supply Gone are the words that are on my lips. Gone are the only words on my lips. Gone are the words that are on my lips. Trailing off. A careful thought. A lashing tong. Alright. We're all alright. And I can't go to sleep at night Ok. We're all ok and I'm... Still awake... I'm on my back and laughing I can hardly get through the verse Bleed out. You're very important. I can hardly think of anything worse

Hey I want to see you again. Shane this is Stephen. Calling your name on heaven's gate. Hey when I was dreaming. You came and you gave me sweet reflection and you said. This is what he said. He said: Keep it up and see what happens Keep it up and see what happens Keep it up and see what happens Keep it up and see what happens What happened?

The sun has just begun to rise, here comes the bus on down the line. It's cold as hell, my fingers sting, I pay my fare, I take my seat. What is there to talk about? I come in to work I come back out. Simple things and a simple life. An ugly dog and a pretty wife. Ain't no use in crying when I die. Make sure they nail my coffin good and tight. I'm older now and I find myself far more complicated. Got a little more weight, more on my plate, and I'm way more impatient. The dog she is barking at the keys out in the hall. Won't see it on no TV show it's written on the bathroom stall. Ain't no use in crying when I die. Make sure they nail my coffin good and tight. I'll wear the sharpest three piece that I own. But I don't think I'll need it where I'm going. Tell my pretty baby I love her so There's many miles I still got left to go Out beyond the night sky's where I'll be My bond fire spitting cinders in the breeze. My bond fire spitting cinders in the breeze. My bond fire spitting cinders in the breeze. Hey. You can't put me out today.

about

The Falling Birds Brooklyn, New York

The Falling Birds have a simple concept: Write songs with clear foundations in blues and folk, and throttle them with punk rock snarl. Their style is equal parts careful musicianship and wild indifference.
