A Little Less Than Nothing

2021 live from my room.

It was hard to sing any louder cause I was freezin' and I couldn't feel my fingers, so sorry if you could hardly hear me sing with my dumb quiverin'.


Lyrics:


Late in the empty lot

A staggering drunken sadness, stain of a spot

A so-and-so, clad in shame from head to toe

Off to where god don’t know


Ya crush a cigarette

And called the one you keep as an intimate pet

Play thing strung along with amphetamine

To places you won’t be seen


I don’t need that kinda decline

I just wanna feel it out this time

An emptiness of another kind

I’m just gonna feel it out this time


So the people you attract

All become a disappearing act

It’s best to let those dying sunsets rest

And learn to love them less


I’m sorry I have to say

I couldn’t see it any other way

Okay, I’ll see you on another day

If you still decide to stay


I don’t want that feeling tonight

I just wanna make it out alright

A loneliness of another kind

I just wanna make it out alright


At “our place”

Those words aren’t what they mean

A hole in the wall at the place unclean

Just a dirty little rendezvous

Connor, beautiful song!
So simple yet brilliant.
I love that your voice really comes through.

ConnorDeVaux responds:

I only wish my voice came through a little more. It was cold and hard to sing much louder really.

Love these raw acoustic takes, something about the energy behind every lyric. Lookin forward to the next tune!

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Aw thanks man, I hope I don't disappoint :)

The legend finally returns!
This just made my day, Great track man! :)

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Lol, Legend. The local legend of the rails and bus stops maybe. I'm glad I'm able to make a day though!

The chord progression is lovely and like you pointed out, the vocals are a little low in the mix with it being a live recording and all. Appreciate you including the lyrics because I think they're some of my favorites of yours. Thanks for sharing this.

ConnorDeVaux responds:

Thanks, I shoulda drank coffee before attempting anything really... it's so cold and I get nervous playing live stuff, even for recording cause of just the obvious of one little mess up and everything kinda needs to be chucked and restarted.. Thanks a lot for the kind words as always. It always makes it easier to try again.
