Steemit Open Mic - Week 70: Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings (Father John Misty Cover)

3년 전

Hey guys! Welcome to Week 70 of the Steemit Open Mic! I can't believe it's alread week 70! Although I usually write and perform my own songs, I do cover a few, and this week decided to play one of my favorites: Hollywood Forever Cemetery Sings by Father John Misty. Lyrics below. I Hope you enjoy!

Jesus Christ, girl
What are people gonna think?
When I show up to one of several funerals
I've attended for Grandpa this week

With you
With me
But someone's gotta help me dig
Someone's gotta help me dig

Jesus Christ, girl
It hasn't been long so it seems
Since I was picking out an island and a tomb for you
At the Hollywood Cemetery

You kiss
On me
But we should let this dead guy sleep
We should let this dead guy sleep

Jesus Christ, girl
I laid up for hours in a daze
Retracing the expanse of your [Canadian] back
With Adderall and weed in my veins

You came
I think?
'Cause the marble made my cheeks look pink
But I'm unsure of so many things

But someone's gotta help me dig
Someone's gotta help me dig
Someone's gotta help me dig

Thanks for listening, thanks to all the judges, and good luck to all!
