You are a picture of yourself
Beautiful and broad shouldered
And I don't think I'm any closer to the day
Where I can sing a song and say your name

So I will take my tongue and bite it
I'll take my love unrequited
I'll let my dishes pile up in the sink and
Go see a man about a drink

I found my words upon the Atlantic
And you've got eyes as brown as beer
So excuse me if I get romantic
When the whites of your eyes disappear

I've been stitching up my clothes
Turning rags to riches
And I don't think I'm any closer to the day
I won't be stitching upon my stitches

So I'll take pride in all my resilience
I'll take a couple words and I'm gonna strive for brilliance
And while it never comes out like I need it to
I get a way with my words with you

But there are some that I'll never tell you
Cause they're as hard to say as to hear
So I'll get by on the jokes that I sell you
When the whites of your eyes disappear

They call their sound “Power Pub”, but this is not your Dad's Dad Rock band. They can be mentioned in the same breath as Elvis Costello, The New Pornographers, Roxy Music, or Big Star's “Third”, so long as you take a big enough breath. ... more
