lyrics

waitress with a twisted hand
she looks like she's ready to crumble
my t-shirt should say this,
"it is not worth the trouble"

earthquake, i'm a heartache, i'm a black light,
i'm a big old stupid kite
flash flood, you're the sound of the bugs
in the tenessee sky

will remain a mystery
never be your friend
i am not your cup of tea, your everything
and you're not listening

she's living in the desert now
works at the careless cafe
with her beehives and her pocketknives
and a dull, silent ache

newsflash, i'm a plane crash,
i'm a blackbird, in a hundred unspoken words
secret code, smoke signals in the arizona sky

will remain a mystery
never be your friend
i am not your cup of tea, your everything
and you're not listening

i've been singing in the choir here in detroit
i am calling you collect
i've circling somewhere off the radar...

about

Rob Lamothe Ontario

The Toronto Star says I am ‘a mercurial artist who slides effortlessly from rustic roots music to soulful country pop to full-blown rock balladry’. Works for me!
