Solo acoustic version of the song Lover's Chords, also available on Earwig's album Pause For The Jets.


Lover's Chords
I swore an oath I would conceal my inner calling
But these are lover's chords
This quickened pace it knows my name, knows where I'm going
And I can feel your arms around me sleeping in my bed

Bury my heart in a river, my Gatemouth Brown
My tell-tale heart, it will explode

I heard a heartbeat in a wall, a deathwatch beetle
Singing a clicking song
Oh hopeless night with vulture eyes
And the hour of the slowest clock is the tempo of salvation
It never ends

Bury my heart. Bury my blood in a river, my Gatemouth Brown
My tell-tale heart it will explode


from Spooky Jets at a Distance, released May 15, 2017
Lizard McGee: vocal and guitar
Recorded live in one take with a C-1 microphone into a Joe Meek VC3Q mic-pre and directly into Pro Tools. Not mastered.
