She tumbles in tales Telling all kinds of lies What were her aims? I cannot decide The wind in his sails The sea will take her ghost Will I see her again? Only she knows Down by the ancient rolling river My cautious arrow quivers And fires off my soul All that I ever really wanted Was to be the one you wanted Will that make me whole? Fill these holes? Fill these holes? She's calling his name Ten times over I'm lying there lame It's what I do Over and over Like a flame that catches tinder The glowing embers cinder And burn away my soul All that I ever really wanted Was to be the one you wanted Will that make me whole? Fill these holes? Fill these holes?

Meet me By the river Sweetly Make me quiver Your love flows Through the dark days And who knows How you raise the hazy daze? Meet me In the town Sweetly Blossom all around Your love grows In the dark days And who knows How you raise the hazy, hazy, hazy daze?

My love rides a black horse At night My doubt takes a dark course All the time I watched a waited I could not wake it My heart was break'ed oh Her love is sacred It holds me naked Just like the day I was born My god does not show me If I believe Old mountain, you tower coldly Above me I watched and waited I could not take it My heart was break'ed oh Her love is sacred It holds me naked Just like the day I was born

So you wanna burn this town down Run around, gone mad So you never heard a sound now Elevate the fame of what we have I was sitting in the cheap seats All I own blown away by the wind Spent a long time with the bums and beats Eyes roll round, look down on the way back in Running in the dark So "you gotta keep your pain inside" I sway, deviate from the path ahead But I don't see how I'm "lost and found" I know these roads like the back of my hand Running in the dark

about

'Sun Of A Gun' sees Good Good Blood (aka James Smith) developing his reputation for beautiful, affecting and honest songwriting even further.

Written and recorded at home during the first flushes of spring, the album's 11 songs cautiously brighter mood reflect the time of year they were born.

Using a minimal recording set up, Smith draws on his resourceful, inner world to make each track come alive and blossom. Each one is a testament to the beautiful messiness of life, love and everything that goes with it.

With echoes of Mount Eerie, Alex G and Bon Iver, Smith nevertheless continues to show he is an artist plotting his own path and defining his own sound.
