lyrics

HE’S STILL STANDING

There is trouble to be had
With that double life you lead
But come on sister don’t be sad
You got a new old book to read

And I’m the one, the cameo in the middle
Who draws his gun just a little
Too late and some, they call him a riddle
For in the midnight sun, he’s still standing

There’s a place I’d rather be
A sugar-coated mystery
Where dreams don’t grow on money trees
But so far it’s eluded me

They say it’s found when you’re not looking
You’re only bound by your backwards thinking
It’s underground, where the poor man’s working
He don’t make a sound, but he’s still standing

There’s a story in my head
I haven’t seen the ending yet
But it’s filmed in black and white and red
All the other colors I forget

And I’m the one, the cameo in the middle
Who draws his gun just a little
Too late and some, they call him a riddle
For in the midnight sun, he’s still standing

When not making music happen, I'm usually fooling around with old cameras, record players, rusty typewriters, and dusty books, while drinking coffee or other craft beverages. ... more
