Everybody looks like someone i just saw five minutes ago
If i looked too far in the mirror i know i'd have to run
From copper harbour way down to acapulco
Where the sun shines on the moon & the moon gives it back to everyone
I'm living in a prayer

Every time i turn around some ghost wants to buy me a beer
Feel like i'm living in a trashy novel where plot's the only thing
The fire's out the smoke has blown but still nothing is clear
I could swear it's a summer day but then why am i freezing
I should be there

Why god let us meet at this time i have no idea
Maybe i have paid for my sins by now or i don't have long to live
The meadowlark's song in the evening is not as sweet as the one you sing to me
I will dig deep in my pockets
See what boyhood treasures i can give
You should be here
I should be there
Long as i'm in your heart
I'm living in a prayer

Is this guy trying to sound like Bela Lugosi or something?

Supposed to?  Greg's not like when mom chides her boys to finish their green beans.

You might like this more if you've had the chance to hear some of the other great music from Brown.

This guy's been releasing albums for over 35 years; I imagine he's found his own sound by now.  He's more "bluesy/Americana" than Waits or Cave, though I like the music of those two guys better than I like this.

Do you expect a man who was born in the Hacklebarney section of southeastern Iowa to listen to that playlist? Yeah, he probably did, before he did his own thing.
He's coming to town soon and I will be elsewhere.......too bad.
