I was thinking about the cold and bitter end to us all
all these years to figure out what takes a finger snap to fall
and every boulder up the crag just tumbles to the right
and every little waste of breath just makes you more uptight

and I’ll sit with you in times of trouble
I’ll sit with you in chains
But I will never save you

I was dreaming of a void that stretches till the dawn
and all the people that I love just want to move along
I sing a song for the cynical, the lonely and the cursed
so hard to hear the positives when you always fear the worst

and I’ll sit with you in times of trouble…

but living ain't cheap
and laughing ain't easy
crying ain't for babies
and dying ain't for jesus
If i don't matter, then I don't matter

and I will never save you

I was staring out across that dread and bitter sea
thinking 'bout all the toils and tears it took to get to me?
Consciousness to nothingness just a sniff to a sigh
And how could I ever figure out heaven, if I don’t believe in trying

That’s why I’ll sit with you in times of trouble
I’ll sit with you in chains
I’ll sit with you as all things crumble
I’ll sit with you though flames
But I will never save you

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
