They march as a unit, a family sticking together through the thick of big record labels or the thin of a small Nashville indie. The song is the best conquest, and, on Tall Tree , Roman Candle nails nearly all of them. To be faithful to Tall Tree 's central conceitthat, compared to the wonderful permanence and effect of a great tune, time is wasteful in its hasteRoman Candle's time at the threshold of the Next Big Thing, The Last Great American Rock Band might have passed.
The band's getting older, settling into different life roles. But Tall Tree is an album of rich ideas and generous execution. All told, it's a marvelous, unique tale of resolve and results from any bandlet alone one that had to fight this hard to get it made. Chapel Hill St. Skip to main content. Romantic Sad Sentimental.

SONNET 46 lyrics buy track Some freezing rain is falling on my shoulder and a winter wind is blowing through each lung. Some things about this weather make me older some things about it make me feel so young. There's a quarter moon that knows the hours i'm keeping and a glittered highway showing back its light.
There's a baby at home in my room that's sleeping and a woman that won't be alone tonight. So let the lads and lad-ettes keep Ibiza and morning walks home, cocktail on their chin.
I'll spill my own drink listening to Aretha with my girl and a fireplace in our den If being young is one prolonged farewell I'll find it undiminished somewhere else. I ask myself what would you think about me if you only knew that I'm looking for a little more than a drink and a walk up the street, and I've got something more in mind when I get you in the passenger seat.
I've got a heartbeat baby a heartbeat baby that belongs to you I've got a heartbeat baby a heartbeat baby and there's nothing I can do When I was young my mama sat me down and told me how it goes You'll walk the world but most of what you're looking for is under your nose. Now I've spent plenty of time getting lost in the citites where the hours disappear and I've got something more that's burning up my neck and pounding in my ears.
One cup of coffee, two shots of whiskey neat, ambulance sirens blasting down a side street, here you come a walking like a punch right to the gut but I guess until I tell you then I have to keep my mouth shut.
And listen to the heartbeat baby a heartbeat baby that belongs to you I've got a heartbeat baby a heartbeat baby and there's nothing I can do. It'd been a long time, It'd been a long time. Well I woke up this morning with love in my heart. You know it's so hard to find it. It's good to be reminded. I was moving around my empty hotel room. I had the front door open wide at 4 o'clock in the afternoon It had rained all night and the leaves dripped on the tree the whole day felt straight ahead, and not a bit of it belonged to me And I'm not sure if it's anything to do with you And I'm not sure if I'll feel it again, or forget.
And I'm not sure if it's anything to do with you but if I had to bet, but if I had to bet. I woke up this morning, everything tastes good to me: Captain's wafers from the hotel bar, a styrofoam full of lipton tea. I could see the pavement where the sun was shining hot making little heat waves of rainbow across that empty parking lot Well I woke up this morning with love in my mind. I had started to wonder I had started to wonder. I know a thousand people that will tell how the end of the whole song goes.
I'm thinking that nobody knows. I've spent so much time round here when spring is done been here a thousand times, not heard a single one. Birds in the morning while I'm shoveling the snow coffee pot wheezing soft as my stereo All of the things I've had whether I've known or not All of the things I've known and then somehow forgot When I was young riding aound beer in my lap, one window down bird in the tree, kiss on the mouth I thought that I had figured it out I was a fool.
Then I met you. Dusk was the longest hour when I was a kid. Beautiful things sometimes can seem pretty hid. Funny the things that make you want to walk the land are the things sometimes you barely understand. Found lots of crooked road before I found you hard to curse any road but sometimes you do. Feeling all strung out, drawn up from head to gut I was calling out, I didn't know for what When I was young riding aound beer in my lap, one window down bird in the hand, kiss on the mouth I thought that I had figured it out All of these things so hard to find up in my face, lost to my mind hand on the knee, kiss in the mouth I thought that I had figured it out I was a fool.
The serpentine is black and doesn't show a single star And I'm just off work and walking through the park. Girls in evening clothes are talking on the phone, Got their bags from knightsbridge and their walking home. Well the drinks they pour at this bar never run too cheap and I've got no plans to meet anyone it's clear. But the history in this postal code runs deep, and it might be lost on most of the ones in here I can't say for certain honey where I'm bound.
I've got no rich relations, got no extra time. But when they shut this bar tonight I know I'm going to walk down by the riverbank and watch the night so fine. I don't know how other folks get by. But there's one thing that I've learned for fact. There's a music you can only hear when you're starting from scratch. A roach's wings are fluttering soft and clear in the midnight of this quiet flat. I know that it ain't normal thanking stars but it ain't normal seeing stars outshine the London streetlights either.
