Joy of a solitary man

from by a Singer of Songs

lyrics

I could watch these walls for hours
The stains, the moist
The shadows slowly roll
I long for a horizon like a coward
Words just raindrops
In a lake of fire
I moan some more
I moan some more

The world looks nice beyond the glass
I dream of dolls that laugh
And grass against my back
The sun fades out into stark black
I've felt this way before
But I'd rather not look back
I moan some more
I moan some more

The heat you cherish is
Not something
I'm apt to enjoy
The beach you lie on
Face down
It's just dust meeting water to me now
I moan some more
I moan some more

But I will try to understand
The joy of a solitary man
Roll above the plains this time
On heat waves, steady towards the light
The light...

I would rather walk away than stay
Be a shadow on the wall
Because I'm sure to understand
The joy of a solitary man
And roam some more
And roam some more
And roam some more...

about

a Singer of Songs Barcelona

a Singer of Songs' music has been compared to snowflakes falling in slow motion. To a blanket on a cold night and dogs howling into the night. Somebody called their album the soundtrack to a loser's life. The band thinks that's the biggest compliment they ever got.
But yeah, you probably want some useful information. Well, they live in Barcelona and they sing songs. That's about it.
