Written by Jonathon Blake and Recorded by St. Lawrence Warehouse Company in May 2014. Also available on the St. Lawrence Warehouse Company " The Grateful EP " released November 2014.
Written as a plea for a better life, beneath the shade of a tin roof, Below the hot West African sun in Midday.


For what its worth,
The Last While,
You've Inspired when you Smile
You could Move,
Take a Shot,
Sometimes Wounds they make you sexy,
Sometimes not.
We've got rules of attraction
We must use,
To get some Action,
So cut your hair,
Do push ups, Get a girl,
Build yourself up.

But with you, I dont wanna play those games
I dont wanna know your fames, or what your mom brags about
You've, got some wisdom I can gain
I dont even know your name,
But you taught me how to wait
The way you do.

We've each got,
an apartment,
We've amassed,
Second hand Garments,
and we search, and we're charming
we think romantically about farming.
It reminds me how to live somehow.
But distracts me from the here and now.

And we rip through all the pages,
Search for meanings in the phrases.
It is now, just a woman or a man we seek
Not just a way to finish off the week,
Call this cheesy sentimental speak,
in this land of wants and needs.

Im a man! Without sense!
When a woman without repentance,
Stumbles by!
Wiles away!
Asks me my name!

Cause with you,
I dont wanna know your name
I dont wanna know your fames or what your mom brags about
you've got some wisdom I can gain
I dont even know your name,
but you taught me how to wait,
the way you do.
