Songs of Will T. Massey — “Drunken Cupid”

Will T. Massey — "The Weathering"From his 2016 CD release, The Weathering, his most recent to date, this song powerfully captures Will’s striking use of imagery and masterful phrasing as he looks back on lost love. 

Will has been unwilling to contact anyone for the last 5 years. I continue to share his music here so that these songs — and Will — will not be forgotten.

Plus, they’re just damned good songs!

Did I come on too strong?
Was I little ‘off’?
Was I drinking too little?
Was I showing things I’ve lost?
You shine like a diamond
You lost long ago.
Maybe we’ll pawn it someday,
And go to a rock & roll show.

I’m still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over your shoulder
There’s a long road you’ve been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

Maybe you’ve read more books.
Maybe you’ve got more cash.
But I’ve lived some winding stories, babe,
And I’ve got a little stash.
It’s a mysterious universe
And you can never be sure
But I escaped from the dark side
For cathedral eyes like yours.

I’m still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over my shoulder
There’s a long road I’ve been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

Playing this bow like a one-stringed guitar,
Toasting to time & smoking a cigar —
An angel came to carry him home
And it’s just you & I here alone.

Still getting over,
Getting over a love.
A little bit colder
But there’s a good times God above.
And over His shoulder
There’s a long road He’s been down —
A drunken cupid was hanging around.

The drunken cupid was hanging around.
