about

A tree falls into a river a thousand miles upstream. Nobody notices. Through miles of snags, sand and rocks, the inessential wears away. Waterlogged and ground down, it travels toward her... Compression and carving do their work slowly. She is standing on the bank now – expecting nothing. At the perfect, predetermined moment, she looks up. All she sees is a tight knot of guitar, bass, drums, voices, memories and images floating past her, solid and tight... They call these “river teeth”. The dark sap of desire is all that saved it.

lyrics

ANYWAY
copyright 2006 john common music

she dresses like a fire sale.
she's a punk rock jezebel
wearing last night's favorite perfume
whiskey and a cigarette plume.

she could crush my heart like a flower.
i've only known her for an hour.
she thinks i'm young and i don't have a clue
but i know what i'm gonna do.

every syllable will fall in time.
every single word will make her smile, smile.
i'll sing her songs with my old guitar.
i'll paint poems on the hood of her car.

she's gone in the wink of an eye.
she said you'll never see me cry.
that's a wrinkle i could do without
i'm fighting not to follow her out.

but she was beautiful tonight.
she made me feel alright
sitting naked in the back of her car
i fell like a shooting star

it's obvious she never meant to stay
but i'm gonna make her love me anyway. anyway.
i'll sing her songs with my old guitar.
i'll paint poems on the hood of her car.

anyway. anyway.
i'll sing her songs with my old guitar.
i'll paint poems on the hood of her car
