All I Need

I’m the next act
Waiting in the wings

I’m an animal
Trapped in your hot car

I am all the days
That you choose to ignore

You are all I need
I’m in the middle of your picture
Lying in the reeds

I’m a moth
Who just wants to share your light

I’m just an insect
Trying to get out of the night

I only stick with you
Because there are no others

You are all I need
I’m in the middle your picture
Lying in the reeds

It’s all wrong
It’s all right
It’s all wrong

Country Music Will Break Your Heart #3

College Football star turned Country artist Sam Hunt knows a thing or two about heartbreak. How could he not with that Georgia boy swagger and those Drake-esque vocal stylings? Let’s take a moment to oogle his beauty.

*Sigh*

Musically, Hunt uses contemporary, genre-crossing features in combination with traditional country storytelling to create a classification of his own. The artist was inspired by the more universal soulful aspects of southern music included in country, soul, R&B, and Hip Hop categories. In fact the first time I heard the following track I felt that it was better labeled as Spoken Word poetry rather than country music, and I think that is because of compelling and familiar lyrics.

 

In “Break Up In A Small Town” Hunt relays the difficulties that come with, yup, you guessed it, breaking up while living in a small town. Even if you haven’t ever lived in a small town I think the story will resonate with you. With the ever-expanding closeness provided by technology/social media/globalization, the world is morphing into a variation of a small town. Whether your ex’s mailbox is 7 minutes from yours or your FaceBook keeps telling you that they might be “Someone You Know,” chances are you are going to feel the discomfort that comes from inevitable run-ins with their memory or personhood.

 

Stand Out lyrics:

She’s so far gone, she just didn’t go far

She was over me before the grass grew back where she used to park her car

She’s leaving those same marks in someone else’s yard

In someone else’s arms,

right down the road

But there’s only so many streets, so many lights

I swear it’s like I can’t even leave my house

I should’ve known all along

You gotta move or move on

When you break up in a small town

Wake up alone

It’s okay in the day I’m staying busy
Tied up enough so I don’t have to wonder where is he
Got so sick of crying
Run around just so I don’t have to think about thinking
That silent sense of content
That everyone gets
Just disappears soon as the sun sets

This face in my dreams seizes my guts
He floods me with dread
Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone

If I was my heart
I’d rather be restless
The second I stop the sleep catches up and I’m breathless
This ache in my chest
As my day is done now
The dark covers me and I cannot run now
My blood running cold
I stand before him
It’s all I can do to assure him
When he comes to me
I drip for him tonight
Drowning in me we bathe under blue light

His face in my dreams seizes my guts
He floods me with dread
Soaked in soul
He swims in my eyes by the bed
Pour myself over him
Moon spilling in
And I wake up alone

Chateau Lobby #4

People are boring
But you’re something else I can’t explain
You take my last name

First time, you let me stay the night despite your own rules
You took off early to go cheat your way through film school
You left a note in your perfect script: “Stay as long as you want”
I haven’t left your bed since

I haven’t hated all the same things
As somebody else
Since I remember

What are you doing with your whole life?
How about forever?
