Not many good things come out of Alabama. Really. Name a few.

Remy Zero? Well that’s one.

Life in the Rain (Live)

Perfect Memory (Live)

Perfect Memory… Written¬†for Cinjun Taylor’s¬†father.

Remember how they always seemed to know
We had the forest in our eyes
But the earth was in our clothes
And they thought we’d fall
Not at all

So look back on the treasured days
When we were young in a world that was so tired
Though it’s not what we wanted before
Even the saints had to crawl from the floor
Summers when the money was gone, you’d sing
All your little songs that meant everything to me

And I’ll remember you
And the things that we used to do
And the things that we used to say
I’ll remember you that way

Remember how they tried to hold you down
And we climbed those towers
And looked down upon our town
And everything you hoped would last
Just always becomes your past (it hurts)
Summers when the money was gone you’d sing
All your little songs that meant everything to me

And I’ll remember you
And the things that we used to do
And the things that we used to say
I’ll remember you always

But then this world slipped through my fingers
And even the sun seemed tired
I still cared
As I lowered you down my heart just jaded
In that moment the earth made no sound
But you were there
You helped me lift my pain into the air

I still miss you
God I still miss you
I know that you are waiting there
I always thought that you’d come home

And I’ll remember you
And the things that we used to do
And the things that we used to say

If it don’t hurt you
It won’t hurt me
If it don’t hurt me
Then it won’t hurt you
If it don’t hurt you
It won’t hurt me that way
