Lyrics:


Sweetie Linda

You ain’t looking so well

Like someone’s given you a bout of hell

And called ya names

None of which I know you’d claim


Thought I told ya

This ain’t a place where you belong

Get out now before it all goes wrong

Or explain

Why’s it worth all the pain


And you say

“Purple’s a pretty color anyway”

But all them scars and violent marks on you

Won’t fade away


Sweetie Linda

The kids’ll understand

The back of another lover’s hand

To lay waste

To what’s left of a beautiful face


I left ya money

By your smokes with a note

This’ll help ya get out and go

But it’s spent

And we both know where it went


And you say

“I’ll be better off if I stay”

The son you called your number one

Has gone and ran away


Sweetie Linda

They spoke your name across station to station

And cried “Eureka!”

“Done in by her own stagnation”

Sweetie Linda

At the crossroads you were found

Ya became the shadow

Casted when the Sun dies down

Down

Died down

Your picture’s taken over the town

Ya always came to me to keep you clean

But I couldn’t quite clean you out

Aw thanks! I was gonna get more stuff together and try to throw it up on SC eventually, might do YT too but I don't know if it's really good enough to slingshot out there

Dry the rain, beta band.

Literally know the chords and tune ha.

Nice take, you know what my issues are so are they worth repeating? My doors open any time, i can do miracles for you.

That acoustic layered over electric chords is heavenly.

Journey of a build up too, pairs well with the story your telling with the lyrics. A couple of beat/tempo inconsistencies aside, pretty well produced over all.

Nice track, man. You’re a great story teller.

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Thanks! Yeah I ran outta time for fixing the inconsistencies, I still wanna but it'll probably be a bit before I can. The song is about my mother, thanks again

Great song, with a bit of mix-mastering work could definitely sound a bit better but I understand the struggle working with a bedroom studio

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Not even a whole bedroom, just a little corner hahaha
