about

I lost my phone in Nashville, on my birthday. Consequently I had to find and activate my old phone from 3 years ago. On that phone were almost 50 recordings. Some full songs, some bits and pieces. The Nashville Blessing is a few of those mistake-ridden bits and pieces.

Track Name: Build You A Boat
I'll build you a boat
And I'd flood all the roads
I'd make you a map
With an X marked for home
I'd cut the power
Build a fire
Cry for rain
If it meant I could bring love home again

So build a boat baby
I'm not going crazy tonight
I'd built a boat baby
I'm not going crazy
It seemed to work well in the past
I'll build a boat baby
I'm not going crazy tonight
Track Name: Meet A Careful Man
Meet a careful man
Someone who is good to follow
And I won't be around
I promise that you won't be bothered

And sometimes you get good at doing bad things
And I guess that's the life for me
Sometimes it don't go according to plan
When you're not a careful man

Meet a careful man
Settle down and have a careful daughter
I won't be around
I won't be there to bother

And sometimes you get good at doing bad things
And I guess that's the life for me
My eyes all hurt
And my ears they ring
But I still have it in me to sing

Meet a careful man
Someone who won't bend when bothered
And I, I'll stick to my plan
I'll walk around without being followed
Track Name: Burned It Down
There's a darkness, love
That's been coming round
But don't worry he won't come in our town
Cause I stole his truck
Burned down his liquor store
Still, don't worry love
At least not anymore

Cause I burned it down, down, down
I burned it down, down, down

Going the extra mile
To save the family
Put my cigarette out in some kerosene
And the video
They did not see me
Even if they did, they themselves aren't seen

Cause they all burned down, down, down
Down, down, down

That old liquor store our fathers would frequent
Days before weekends, and oft without reason
It ain't around
Cause we burned it down
Track Name: Bloody Marys
Two bloody Marys came to see me in the morning
Both said they'd fix my head
Oh bloody Marys can't you see just past the warning
I am already so close to dead

One bloody Mary ran off and got engaged
The other got real drunk
One bloody Mary turned herself into a mother
The other bloody Mary turned herself in a lush

One bloody Mary came to see me in the morning
Said that the other died
I put my head inside the bottom of my pillow
And I pretended that I had cried

One bloody Mary came and sang me a real sad song
I tried to hum along
But the words didn't seem to make sense since only one bloody Mary was gone

One bloody Mary came to see me in the morning
Now I don't sleep so much
One bloody Mary wakes up and puts on lipstick
That looks exactly like my blood
Track Name: Phone Calls
I'll find the closest thing I can to you
Try to wrap it up for a year or two
And she won't like gaps on my resume
But that's the price you pay
These days

And when she sings she won't sound like you
Not even half as well as you used to
And she'll tell me how I'm only fucked
Because years ago my folks split up
Yeah, you'll tell me how I'm only fucked
Because years ago my folks split up
Track Name: Love, Don't Sleep Tonight
Love, don't sleep tonight
I've got things on my mind, to make it all right
I've got drinks, I've got drugs
I've got enough love
For the both of us so you don't have to waste yours

I'm coming down right now
I don't think I know how
To handle sleep, with you next to me
And I know I don't
I know I don't

Darling I'll look for you
Anywhere you want me to
Cause when you are gone I can't breathe
Sink my teeth into my knees
Beg myself and I plead
Don't worry this might only be a dream

If you could feel things in your dreams
Then I would know for sure

So darling please don't come down
The views better anyhow
And the shakes and spins
I'm not sick of them
