about

"written at around 1 am, outside the tent where my 3 children were sleeping. we were camping on lake ontario, the tent on a little rise in the grass, my guitar on my lap and a sleeman creme ale in my hand."

lyrics

drive me to some distant solar system
i'll sing in the back seat of your car
i'm the last one to recognize the irony
of a black hole swallowing a shooting star
it pains me to spin through this killing blue
i can only wait here for you
twelve moons of jupiter
no sign of the sun
orbit is graceful
like a monkey with a gun
it pains me to spin through this killing blue
i can only wait here
i am not your bloody supernova
burning like a billion suns
i am not your bloody supernova
if you lose the invisible light
will you x-ray my soul
i know how to use my fist
i don't know what this heart is for
it pains me to spin through this killing blue
i can only wait here
for you

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!
