lyrics

Some people say Matt hey you look out of it
You haven’t written a new song in a week that will be too long
Well I’ve been working playing and singing
Writing and thinking and a whole lot of drinking
Songs come and go out the back door you know
Try to catch it and don’t let go of it
I’ve got a crack in my ceiling a bucket full of water
An empty bottle why do I bother

I’ve got a fear of falling on my face
I’ve got a fear of losing this race
And I’ve got a fear of being a drunken disgrace
But I still got faith

Spoken: Well I get really drunk and I lose thing sometimes. Over here and over there sometimes nowhere.

Well I woke up this morning the weather was fair
Couldn’t find my cell phone hope I left it over there
In my dirty laundry and not at the bar
On that train or in the back of that car
But I’ll get me a new one won’t be as good as the old one
It won’t have a camera it’s not that much fun
But it will get the job done and I can still call you
Ask you how you’re doing and tell you that I love you

I’ve got a fear of falling on my face
I’ve got a fear of losing this race
And I’ve got a fear of being a drunken disgrace
But I still got faith

Some people say Matt hey you look out of it
You haven’t written a new song in a week that will be too long

about

Matt Frye New York

"The troubadour Matt Frye, who is from North Carolina and who now lives in Brooklyn, can be found playing cafés in far corners of the borough, which has become as great an influence on his music as his home state has been. The collision between Southern ways and big-city life produces gritty, quirky songs, sung with a breezy lilt."
