lyrics

how can you mean what you sing
when you won't say things to me worth meaning
i struggle to keep up, i try not to earn
your looks of confusion, throughout conversation
i always let you down

& you're my sunshine tonight, & the dark's
where i feel most at home
& i scream & shout just to catch you off guard
in hopes i catch a glimpse of you in the dark
i always say it's because i'm crazy
but i don't really mean it unless you really believe me
i always say things that i never mean
in hopes you see through me

now whose example is that, baby?
you won't let me in again now

& now the night is upon us,
meaning so much more to me than it reasonably should
murky waters & your songs & your kindness are all mixed down to fuck me up
& everyone's falling all over themselves to say nice things to me,
& i don't comprehend it
i always let you down
i always go home let down

now who can live by the skies, baby?
why should i think clouds & stars are enough to fill in happy
in the blanks

i...
you're my sunshine tonight & i am running around with umbrella at ready
whose problem is that; whose problem has any of this ever been really
i always say it's because i'm crazy
but i don't really mean it unless you really believe me
i always say things that i never mean
but these things they get away from me

now whose example is that, baby?
you won't let me in again now...

rorie kelly New York

rorie kelly is on a quest to bring her songs to ears around the world through the cunning use of the internet and a small blue Toyota with over 200,000 miles on it.

rorie writes songs that are melodic and catchy but more thoughtful and introspective than the average pop tune. Her vocals are bigger than you would expect out of her small body and her guitar playing is powerful and percussive.
