about

This song is modeled after late 60's soul tracks such as Dark End of the Street in progression and structure. It details a relationship gone cold just like the best of William Bell or Dan Penn.

lyrics

I am the sun you are the stars
Never together in the sky
We use to walk these streets in winter
Gin twinkle in our eyes
Now the pavements cracked and crumbled
All the shops have shut down
Its getting harder not to stumble
On the same streets we use to walk around

Hold me baby and tell me you broke down
Something I see right through

It’s been cold this October
the frost hit Columbus Day
Its been an ice box in my living room
And its been like that since May
Clocks ticking and a tocking
And it talks to me sometimes
It says this ticks are gone forever
And the tocks they aren’t to far behind

Hold me baby …

There’s salty tears in my coffee cup
And all my heart strings have knotted up
What were you doing with my best friend downtown yesterday

Just a little bit of time, time time time

I can’t hate you
But I can hate these walls
I can hate the way you avoid my eyes
And the silence when he calls
I’ve been drinking, I've been drinking, drinking and a thinking of you
Yes I’ve been thinking, I’ve been thinking
That it’s the same shit I used to put you through

Hold me baby…

There’s salty tears in my coffee cup
And all my heart strings have knotted up
What were you doing with my best friend downtown yesterday
Baby baby I’ve had enough
And all my friends say I’ve given up
What were you doing with my best friend downtown yesterday… downtown yesterday

about

Coby Carlucci Beverly, Massachusetts

I have been performing in and around New England for 20 years. I describe my sound as Rugged Pop and have been likened to Elvis Costello fronting ZZ Top (or perhaps Nick Lowe fronting Humble Pie). I have three CD’s to my credit (so far!!) the most recent, Dragline, will be available in September. Cheers! CC. ... more
