lyrics

Tell me what is real
Turn a stone into a wheel
And I will stay up all night just thinking
But every dream that lies
And every tear you cry
Well I can’t afford to just keep on drinking

And I keep counting the ways that I’m
Cooler than every square that can’t even fake some surprise
I’m still home
Under the alias of a self I don’t know
Trading hearts for bones

But I’m still a believer
In everything life can give
Though the saddest of memories
Are the happiest times I’ve lived
Still I’m gonna go deeper
Deeper than you can dig
For a shot in the dark
For a shot in the dark

Sailors on the sea
Said next time that we meet
I will turn to gold all of your emotions
But it was not to be
As one ship headed east
And the other to the bottom of the ocean

Some people just shouldn’t talk so loud
They say so many things then they don’t make a sound
Inside the chamber of my present tense
They only raise the rent

But I’m still a believer
In everything life can give
Though the saddest of memories
Are the happiest times I’ve lived
Still I’m gonna go deeper
Deeper than you can dig
For a shot in the dark
For a shot in the dark

And I keep counting the things I say
And don’t put into play
And all those things I pray and pray and pray and pray and pray
With such little faith

But I’m still a believer
In everything life can give
Though the saddest of memories
Are the happiest times I’ve lived
Still I’m gonna go deeper
Deeper than you can dig
For a shot in the dark
For a shot in the dark

about

Adrian Bourgeois Burbank, California

"Just when a tune has ingratiated itself into your memory, in the way the kind of pop music does that inspires one to whistle, the melody sweeps upward, turning and dancing in that unpredictable way that a flock of birds does when it moves toward the sun." (SN&R)
"Lush with strings, angelic harmonies and melodies that swoop and soar like a hook-laden roller coaster"(Sacramento Bee)
