This is a song that’s simple, thought provoking and filled with emotion.

This artist is one of many that continues the centuries old tradition of telling stories through song. He is a true singer songwriter.

So, here’s a lyric that I hope you enjoy from 2011 …

Lately I,
I’ve been heading for a breakdown
Every time I leave my house
Well, it feels just like a shake down

Between street sweepers and the pushers are the lawyers
Who may as well be butchers
Between the small timing hustlers who all
Seem to feed upon each other

Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Lately I
Every time I try to lie down
While my mind just gets away
I can’t even close my eyes now

Between the big fish and ambition and the lovers
Using words as ammunition
Between the wood planks, I’ve been pacing and this
Impossible dream that I’ve been chasing

Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God, why you been
Hanging out in that ol’ violin
While I’ve been waiting for you
To pull me through?

Oh, God
Oh, God
Oh, God

Violin – Amos Lee
