Hiss Golden Messenger - Tell Her I'm Just Dancing Lyrics




What catches fire
Brightens my eyes
Gathering joy to myself
Wrecking my light

What catches fire
Brightens my eyes
And those bottom-end boys
They clap on one and three

Yes, I built a wall - I cannot get over
You can't choose your blues but you might as well own them
For a little while, like the spirit of an older
Hey, Diamond Heel: Get your storm clouds open

Now how many miles to Birmingham?
I'm asking on a friend in the gathering wind
Old hatted cross
Rock hold me
If she asks where I am, tell her I'm just dancing

Yes, I'm just dancing - now I cannot get over
You can't choose your blues but you might as well own them
For a little while, like the spirit of an older
Hey, Diamond Heel: Get your storm clouds open

What catches fire
Brightens my eyes
Gathering joy to myself
It's a lucky thing

    Phil looks 5/5 like a mermaid in this

  2. Dominique Keller

    Avec une opiniâtreté que rien n'abat, Michael C. Taylor aka *Hiss Golden Messenger* passe à l'alambic un country-folk séculaire métissé d'un nuage de rock et de blues, d'un zeste de pop et de jazz et d'une lampée de ces textes écrits dans un motel à la lumière d'un whisky, que le songwriter californien installé à Durham compile depuis 2007 sur des albums hélas trop peu connus, le sixième (_Heart Like A Levee_, 07/10) promu par Bon Iver, ayant espérons-le de bonnes chances d'attirer enfin la lumière.

  3. Stephen McNamara

    Excellent track from the brilliant new album.
