lyrics

DOWN RIGID OLD RAILS
AROUND FLAGPOLE HILL
A STANDING BRIDGE STOOD STILL
ABANDONED BY THE WHEELS
OF YESTERDAY’S TRAIN
‘TIL THE LIGHT RAIL LINE CAME
COVERED IN COLORS
FROM GOLD TO MAROON
WITH PICTURES, WORDS & NUMBERS
FROM THE SOUL TO THE VIEW
BUT OUT WITH THE OLD
& IN WITH THE NEW

I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
I DON’T KNOW WHY I FEEL SO DAMN COLD
BY THE TEAL-TINTED MOON

LIKE THE NIGHT GLOWS
SWEET REFLECTION
MY ONLY WINDOW
IS THE WAVE THAT I’M CATCHIN’
FROM THE TIME THAT’S GONE BY

WELL, THE MAP’S ALWAYS CHANGIN’
THE ROADS AREN’T THE SAME
LIKE TUNNELS FULL OF DIRT
BURIED IN THE NAME
OF A LIGHT RAIL LINE TRAIN
BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO?

I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
HOW HAVE I STAYED SOAKIN’ DRY
WHILE THE RAIN’S BLOWIN’ THROUGH?
I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
SO I WON’T HOLD MY BREATH FOR YOU
AS I’M BREATHIN’ UNDERNEATH YOUR SKY
MY HEART’S BEATIN’ TOO

MIGHT THE STARS HANG BY
STRING & GLUE?
MY ONLY REAL THING IS TH RHYTHM OF YOU
BAD BEHAVIOR, BAD LUCK OR BAD NEWS
MY ONLY SAVIOR IS THE RHYTHM OF YOU
OF YOU
& AS I’M BREATHIN’ UNDERNEATH YOUR SKY
MY HEART’S BEATIN’ TOO

I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
I DON’T KNOW WHY I FEEL SO DAMN COLD
BY THE TEAL-TINTED MOON
I DON’T LOOK SO GOOD IN BLUE
BUT I’D CRY BY THE MOONLIGHT TO DO RIGHT BY YOU
IF I KNEW WE COULD DANCE, TONGUE IN CHEEK, HAND IN HAND,
SHOE BY SHOE

MIGHT THE SUN SHINE ON
OR IS IT THROUGH?
MY ONLY REAL THING IS THE RHYTHM OF YOU
BAD BEHAVIOR, BAD LUCK & A BAD NAME
MY ONLY SAVIOR IS ONE & THE SAME
WITH YOU
ONE & THE SAME
ONE & THE SAME
ONE & THE SAME
WITH YOU
& AS I’M BREATHIN’ UNDERNEATH YOUR SKY
MY HEART’S BEATIN’ TOO

about

Justin Pickard Dallas, Texas

In the course of Justin Pickard’s musical pilgrimage, his songwriting has covered a gamut of subjects: smoking and drinking, the ins and outs of grave-robbery, love and loss, and UFOs that resemble bananas. These subjects in any other writer’s care may not coalesce as seamlessly as they do in the hands of Pickard, who ties them together with wit, passion and heart.

-Jamie Vahala, Dallas Observer
