A really poignant, but beautifully written song by The Tower And The Fool called “How Long.”

Lyrics:
She might not know it, but she wears my heart on her sleeve
And I know this for sure by the hole in my chest
And the bloodstains that run down her street
And I can’t deny all the times I’ve tried
Tried to get her out of my mind
Boy, I believe you, it’s not easy to do
It’s just going to take some time

How long?
How long am I going to feel this way?

Cause it’s been almost one year since the last time that I saw her face
That pretty little girl with the smile of a sheep
The style of a wolf with drawn fangs
And once in a while, I still walk down the road
Down the street where we had lived
I bet you’re hoping to see her and not really need her
And thinking to yourself

How long?
How long am I going to feel this way?
How long?
How long until something washes this away?

Cause each dam’s still burning and water’s still drowning in flame
At night when I sleep, her ghost crawls in my sheets
I hear her voice calling out my name
Man, I’m not going to lie
I’ve fought and I’ve tried so hard to push it away
Boy, I see right through you
You loved her
You still do
Only time will heal your pain

How long?
How long am I going to feel this way?
How long?
How long until something washes her away?

Cause she wears me down, man
She wears me out like the knees in my blue jeans
And I can only patch them so many times with whiskey
Before it starts killing me
Yeah, she wears me down, man
She wears me thin like the threads in that old dress
Like the one I got for her out in Albuquerque
When I was heading home from the west coast

She might not know it, but she wears my heart on her sleeve
Cause I stitched on tight the last in November
The last day that she had seen me

Andy Zipf - Run Away, Little Sister


One of my favorite songs off of Andy Zipf’s Jealous Hands. Download for free here!


Tell me, little sister, if he’s good to you
Why you hidin’ with shades drawn down past noon?
Sirens blarin’ cross the air last night
Policeman tappin’ his flashlight on your door
“What’s the matter, son? Had my eye on you.
Just got a call, ain’t nothing new.”
“Swear to God, mister, we were talkin’ it through.
Lover’s quarrel, and that’s the truth.”

My eyes are open, don’t have to see a violent hand
To know you’re broken, by the touch of a no good man
Women come over for the bible study
Preachin’ you that forgiveness story - and it don’t help

He’s off work now, he’ll be drinkin’
Anxious silence got you thinkin’
Pack your bags head down to the station
One-way ticket to your freedom waiting
He’ll stagger home and find your note
Written in red like the scars he wrote

My eyes are open, don’t have to see a violent hand
To know you’re broken, by the touch of a no good man
His lies are falling on the ears of a tired woman
You got to go down the road while you still can
Run away, little sister

My eyes are open, don’t have to see a violent hand
To know you’re broken, by the touch of a no good man
His lies are falling on the ears of a tired woman
You got to go down the road while I still can
Run away, little sister
