Watsky - Wounded Healer (Deer Tick Sample) Lyrics




[Verse 1:]
His footprints are fading away from the beach
We're not a family to pray or to preach
But daddy's best friend took a handful of pills
And now he's at a podium making a speech
Yesterday night after dark
He carefully wrote his remarks
But everyone said what he put on his page
So he threw it way and went straight from the heart

[Hook:]
I thought this was a party
But all my friends are leaving
And I still want to play
You wrecked me when you stepped out
Cause you're the wounded healer
And you're supposed to stay

[Verse 2:]
A year's a bottle in a bucket of trash
It'll tip over the more that it stacks
Didn't notice it till now
But dad's been moving slower every time we go play catch
I'm scared of the day when he'll carry a cane
I carry his dream
I carry his name
And when papa is gone he will never be gone
because the sound of our sneeze is the same

God bless I
Hear your voice
In mine
I want to stop time
Like a carnival ride
Because
I don't know what I'm saying but I mean it [repeat]

[Hook x2]

    I hope John McCauley hates this as much as I do.

    Cody J.

    Why do you hate this?

    Chris Mallory

    ​@Cody J. "Baltimore Blues No. 1" is an impressively simple piece with profound lyrics which cleverly and vehemently describe the relatable subject matter. This, with John McCauley's unique voice and the straightforward guitar riff, synergizes into a meaningful and distinctive work of art.


    Someone fast talking over the guitar diminishes the quality of the riff and is disrespectful to the original piece. Passionless and boring lyricism strewn on a stolen instrumental is lazy and disrespectful to the original piece. Trying to make your work relatable by acting sad in front of a camera is cheap and disrespectful to the original piece.


    But really anything that is pandering to teenagers is bound to be garbage.

    Budzabit

    @Chris Mallory aw man, I really dont wanna argue this but you make it hard to resist.

    Despite your claims, I'm both a guitarist and happen to very much enjoy watzky, and I happened to stumble upon this riff purely because of watzky. Baltimore blues is an incredible song and I respect it in it's own regard, but to dismiss Watzky's work here as "Passionless and boring" is not only factually incorrect, but disrespectful.

    You don't have to love every type of music but you should respect the people behind it and the experiences they share and relate through music.

    It should be something that brings us together, not driving us apart. It's evident the George (Watzky) has gone through an impactful experience and is able to convey his emotion in song. If you can't relate to it, that's fine. But it's evident in the comments that it's reached out to a lot of people. Try and be a tad more respectful yeah?

    Cheers.

    My father is a doctor, and I can't help but relate to the lyrics to some extent, especially about the aging aspect. He works so much but still makes time for me, even when I know he's getting older and it's getting hard for him to keep up with me as I grow up. This is an old song, but I still hope someone who still has the time to spend with their family reads this so I can tell you to enjoy every moment you have with them because it won't last forever.
