Nobody left unbroken
Nobody left unscarred
Nobody here is talking
That's just the way things are
You had to go without me
You wandered off alone
And all the neon light reflects off the sidewalk
It all reminds me you're not coming home

Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you
Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you

Every last heart is hardened
And every last tears' been cried
Out on the street the water is frozen
And I feel like the only one alive

Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you
Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you

I long to lay down beside you
Feel your breath in my ear
You're not the first or last I've lied to
I'm lyin' to myself right now
You're still here

Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you
Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you
Sister lost soul, brother lost soul
I need you
Sister lost soul, brother lost soul

I think a funny video for this song would be to have him looking for his misplaced shoes (or fryable flatfish)...
extremely average rock
I like this one a lot. I guess he's an acquired taste...{#Dancingbanana}
you are sooooo right.  this entire album is incredible!   how fortunate you are to have this man so close.   I have only seen him once, wish I had been hip to him 15 years ago.

Nice upload, man.  I've had this one in my my IPod for a while and I think it's a great add to the playlist here.

This is lame 50's-ish Springsteeny blah.
Nice boots.
Dork.

Glad you're having a good time in the hill country, but do we need to know the details of your personal life? {#Naughty}

I'll have to agree with you that it is not particularly inspired, although I like it.  However check out more of Mr. Escovedo's work.
We saw him one night on Austin City Limits and he has some _great_ music.

 
That was a great show.  Something very haunting about his work.

All from same era - Alejandro in the 80's was a strong influence on those other artists...https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alejandro_Escovedo


Finding this a little Hiatt-ish. Nice.

I voted for this one in the Listener Review Channel, a catchy song.
