“Sometimes I Sing” — Songs of Will T. Massey

Will T. MasseyReleased on The Weathering (2016) — available on iTunes and Apple Music.

My headlights are two lucky stars,
Spilling into the street.
My shotgun blonde wants to hear a song from the stage.
It’s the least I could do:
She could do a whole lot better than me.
We pull out on Main Street and I don’t feel my age.

Woo-oo-hoo
Sometimes I sing

To keep from fading away.

Ghosts of lovers sit in a bar
And old songs bring ‘em drinks.
No one understands the homeless man passing through.
Five dollars in the tip jar says a song made her cry
But she can’t remember which one.
Neon flickers half-dark, the football game’s done, too.

Woo-oo-hoo
Sometimes I sing

To keep from fading away.

That old song of mine stood her still
And let me kiss her first.
Now we’re surrounded to the solace of cigarettes
Happiness is her smile,
When she says, “Baby, another drink makes sense.”
It’s a cool darkness, filling our silhouettes.

Woo-oo-hoo
Sometimes I sing

To keep from fading away.

Woo-oo-hoo
Sometimes I sing

To keep from fading away.
