jstop1591 There is a world I hardly remember in which my favorite song called "Impossible" was by a band called Shout Out Louds. That seems like a lifetime ago. What a fool I was! A pitiful, pitiable, pathetic wretch of of a fool. "Good Grief," indeed. Give this artist all of your money. Favorite track: Impossible.

Track Name: Mad Wind
my, oh, my how the wind blows high
passing me up and passing me dry
and it’s hard to think there was a time
out in the city under every light
your face would gleam, your cheeks so bright
but to be lost in the depths of night

sly, so sly how the breeze blows by
leaving me out and leaving me awry
and it hurts to think there was a time
when I was a a face that brought you light
that brought you home, that made you feel
like maybe something could be real

could you hear me in the rain last night?
will you feel me when you’re tucked in tight?
because mad wind, you’re going far
a hurricane without a thought
mad wind, you’re going too far

my, oh, my, how the wind blows high
Track Name: Cactus Blossom
coconut hands and broken chairs
how I want to tell you it’s not fair
to throw away your heart out of fear
it’s not that you’re too young
it’s not that you’re too young

little folk songs and broadway blues
no bra, but a pom pom that blooms from your shoes
the things that I feel when your lips hit my ear
it’s not that I’m drunk
I swear I’m not drunk

there ain’t no one like me
and no one like you
but what you’re searching for
you have no clue
or so you say
but I think you know
it’s only yourself
that keeps you from love

cactus blossom with your little spines
you poke at yourself to try to make up your mind
but what is keeping you up at night
you’re thinking too much
you’re thinking too much

those goosebumps and heartbeat is what scares you the most
you hide it in the morning with strawberry toast
if only I could tell you to welcome it all
but you can’t hear my voice
you can’t hear my voice

twenty four candles, truffles, and wine
the salt on my neck and the smell of pine
up to your nose where a ring leaves a mark
and your legs start to shake as my hands draw a spark
combat boots and dinosaurs calls
tongue love, diamonds, and waterfalls
how long I’ll be there, I never can say
but I’ll never forget feeling this way

maybe you’re too young
Track Name: Impossible
I will say that things are possible
you will claim that it’s just improbable
I don’t think that things are impossible
but you

I can be the things you want me to
but you don’t care what I would do
you just want the things
that don’t come true

I’m breaking apart at my seams
and if you know what it means
I think you’ll have me for a while

I never thought I’d be crippled
but you do something to me
that’s all meant to be

I don’t think I’m being irrational
love, my dear, it leaves in a flash now
I will head to home and sail
my way

there are things I can’t be attached to
but you, my dear, are a thorn in a patch now
and in the dark I still
do think of you

you’re breaking my heart and my dreams
if you knew just how mean
your love can be to me

I never thought I’d be crippled
but you do something to me
that’s all meant to be

as perfect as we seemed
under covers, on the cover
together now our pages are no good
only you can write your story
but I can hope I become a chapter
Track Name: The Wheel
can’t say that I feel
the things that you deal
I can’t see it all
but I’m here for you

the way you were born
for no reason with scorn
now it’s your turn
to take it on

we won’t find help
in a one way street heading south
I think it’s time to pull over
and let you take the wheel from here

can’t say that I know
the next place to go
but always my thought
will be here for you

in making a stand
you’ll have my hand
be it to hold
or to lift your throne

we won’t find help
in a one way street heading south
I think it’s time to pull over
and let you take the wheel from here

you got a million names
and they just want to call you none
you can do a million things
but they want to pin you to one
but they never see
how much you can be
and too bad for them
because you’re coming round

we won’t find help
in a one way street heading south
I think it’s time to pull over
and let you take the wheel from here

I have driven my fair share
but I’ll be your passenger
and when you need me to take the wheel
you know I’ll be there for you
Track Name: Good Grief
I was loaded on greens thinking I could be jesus
while you was in greece twerking to yeezus

out for an eighth or a bag on a dime
while you was just waiting for mars to align

but here I see you and me
and it don’t mean anything

I’m crying good grief, baby
because time ain’t waiting for me
no it’s not kind, baby, but maybe
you’re the one for me

now don’t get in a bad mood
when mama said you need to
this kitchen needs a good stew
but starve if you want to

that ex on the map, I was still riding her
while you was on bleecker rocking the fur

when I was alone you were anchored to him
marking your way in the caribbean

my clock takes a turn for better or worse
when I’m spilling chambord all over your purse

tell me I’m early, I’ll tell you too late
it never is right to be saving the date

but here you see you and me
and it don’t mean anything

you’re crying good grief, baby
because time ain’t waiting for you
no it’s not kind, baby, but maybe
I’m the one for you

I’m crying good grief, baby
because time ain’t waiting for me
no it’s not kind, baby, but maybe
you’re the one for me

now don’t get in a bad mood
when mama said you need to
this kitchen needs a good stew
but starve if you want to
Track Name: Garment District
dropping keys
where did my day go?
I think I lost it
to something borrowed
or something blue
you know I go blank

when there’s a full moon
when there’s a full moon
it tells me there's something
more than myself

where’s your flute
and old jean jacket?
before you woke up
I left a note
on your nightstand
that read

let go of the past
let go of the past
just so that you won’t
forget yourself
Track Name: Sugar Bowl Blues
tell me, old sweetness, are you happy tonight?
tell me, old sweetness, are you happy tonight?
I can feel your heart beat by the sugar bowl
well, that’s one for mama and two to make you roll

here’s a bottle of mash and my brand new pair
here’s a bottle of mash and my brand new pair
for you to take off and for us to share
but the phone don’t ring as you don’t seem to care

give me your sweetness, and I’ll be happy tonight
give me your sweetness, and I’ll be happy tonight
I want to feel your legs quake with that San Andreas soul
I got some concrete, baby, to fill that empty hole

I’ll make you a mama if you make me a man
I’ll make you a mama if you make me a man
but you say you want to be something more
and hell, I can’t keep you from that door

tell me your sweetness, are you happy tonight?
tell me your sweetness, are you happy tonight?
I still feel your heart beat by the sugar bowl
I got one more scoop, but you say you got to go
Track Name: Proxemics
laugh with me or laugh at me
either way I want you there
so I can play you a tune
as you tug at my hair

you have to think there’s nothing more
close than what we’re feeling here
and why would we talk aloud
if you could whisper in my ear

all the things we want to hear
but no it’s just too much to bare
you tell me that I talk too fast
but honey, I’m keeping it real

you name all of the stars by night
and point where we align
and still ten light years away
I feel your heart in mine

if I could be frozen here
in dark and keep a gentle stare
eye to eye before we fade
with me, your teddybear

to embrace the air of innocence
in clouds of what we thought
we forget the way we used to feel
and know only what we’re taught

inside of you is something more
from birth it has always been
but I can’t find the words to show
the goddess that’s within

doll, my doll
doll, your doll
Track Name: Gemini
little norse queen at the top of both peaks
as june came about she could hear the twins speak
of things like honey, things unseen
sweetened at night to make up her dreams

mercury calls to her always to change
but a comet can bring both tears and pain
from times before she ever was queen
when men could still tear and rip at the seams
of her quilted heart, broken apart
waiting for venus to bring a new start

southern her love by a full moon tonight
the lunar reflection brings into sight
all times to come, still far but soon
knowing all she longs for is not lost but new

lavender queen at the top of your sheets
painting the dawn with sunny side streaks
the smell of lotus comes over your room
as she tickles your heart with the end of a plume
and this is where you have always belonged
in the arms of a gemini playing these songs
Track Name: Coyote Eyes
champagne rains over foxes
when you cry out in delight
copper folds in little boxes
sterling hearts won't rust tonight
pink but strange ranunculus
with a field hand out to pair
in a cave of amethyst
with a bouquet and mare

what the stars mark for sailors
in your freckles I find
the guide to your core
by night my north star blues
be haunting you

what is the last one
what is the last one

if you want to stop the sun from rising
little coyote eyes
I'll take a bet on you against nature
for a sure fire prize

you got too much to carry
but you want to be strong

a crescent moon always smiles
when there's no way but down
and even for a thousand miles
you'll never see a frown
salt fields always take a turn
in seasons of despair
sagebrush ain't just mean't to burn
as wisdom is to share

there's a compass to use
in the pulse of your heart
sailing down south
by the delta my tongue
be taunting you

what is the last one
what is the last one

if you want to stop the sun from rising
little coyote eyes
I'll take a bet on you against nature
for a sure fire prize

you got too much to carry
but you want to be strong
you got too much to carry
but you want to be strong

if you want to stop the sun from rising
little coyote eyes
