Gin I Win.

I’m not one to often post song lyrics in this forum, but these are important and wonderful.
And poignant.


you spend too much time
dwelling in some sweet afterwards;
the past is a puddle–
there’s a flower in the middle
that could be yours
if you’d sing a little softer,
pay a little more attention to
the atmospheres…

you can’t tell it like it is
if you can’t tell it like it is
without asking

you can’t tell it like it is
if you can’t tell it like it is
without explaining

you can’t tell it like it is
if you can’t tell it like it is
without complaining

you can’t tell it like it is
if you can’t tell it like it is
without drinking

you can’t tell it like it is
because there AIN’T NO LIKE IT IS.

    Glad you liked it. I just ran across this band on the BlueSanct site. Most of the other stuff on the site isn't really my thing, but they distribute some older In Gowan Ring albums, so I checked them out.
    You surely know that BPB and Will Oldham are the same person, yes?
