riff me happy

Posted: 04/24/2012 in house of blues

the show tonight was shit.

those people,

they should toss us off a bridge and sink us

cos we stank and there’s no denying.

still, i almost cried in the middle of that one song,

when we got to the bridge, the part where your

keyboards sounded so good, always;

tonight norm had to fill in

cos you quit

and it wasn’t the same.

you had the way to make even a shit show better,

and to make me want to sing like i meant it.

tonight on the bus, i’ll stare out the window,

and the boys’ll leave me alone;

i’ll fall asleep around dawn and

if i’m lucky, you’ll show up in my dreams

and riff me happy one more time.

    Somebody’s got to write the sad songs–looks like coal got the job.

  5. Richard Cody says:

    I don’t hear in my dreams. Not that I can recall at the moment at least.

    Shows like that suck and suck hard.
