Dustin Allen Your music stirs a melancholy, homesick, hopefulness deep deep inside of me. Dark and friendly places I though I would never see again. Your wrote all your songs for me, didn’t you old friend?

Cold Song 03:48
Seems they’ve strained the smile from my lips And I’ve been running ever since They keep me standing certain ways, Watch for signs of hesitation Now I had got a mind to make a change If I’m cold and I’m distant, that I can explain It’s a cold song, an early morning song I can see my breath and the melody is gone It’s a cold song, an early morning song It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm Seems joy might have left me long ago like a burned out star that lost its glow Squandered years and wasted years Fueled by guilt and fixed by all my fears Spent all night walking through this house An empty bed, I’m sleeping on the couch It’s a cold song, an early morning song I can see my breath and the melody is gone It’s a cold song, an early morning song It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm Sing, sing a sad song O’re the way our bodies carry on It’s a cold song An early morning song It’s a cold song An early morning song It’s a cold song, an early morning song I can see my breath and the melody is gone It’s a cold song, an early morning song It’s all I’ve got to keep this body warm I’m keeping time with the shaking of my bones I’m on my face praying, God just take me home Sing, sing a sad song O’re the way our bodies carry on It’s a cold song An early morning song It’s a cold song An early morning song We sing.

Days and weeks without a change Woke this morning, smelled like rain Saw the ocean, seemed out of place Don’t forget to leave a light on for me I’m on a roll and feeling quite Put out that fire in your closet And dress for dinner I’m coming home We’ll go someplace that we can be alone Nights I put myself to sleep Days with nothing in my drink These days, they don’t change These days, they don’t change I’ll be the one to change I’ll be the one to change These days all stay the same Older now, I'm feeling nervous I know you love me but you don’t deserve this Aimless is as aimless does I’m having trouble with my thoughts You can use your eyes to peel of these clothes When I’l too tired to do it for myself Dress me up like a paper doll Just watch the cuts and clean me when you’re done Nights I put myself to sleep Days with nothing in my drink These days, they don’t change These days, they don’t change I’ll be the one to change I’ll be the one to change These days all stay the same This place is dangerous and beautiful I guess that’s just how nature is I want to stay and drink my fill I want to stay and drink my fill Nights I put myself to sleep Days with nothing in my drink These days, they don’t change These days, they don’t change I’ll be the one to change I’ll be the one to change These days all stay the same

Lafayette 03:49
Lafayette Your streets, well they welcomed me in happy homes filled my mind with prospects in the breast of that city a man could see straight through to start all over again Lafayette I came in from the wilderness drenched and dirty, wearing my regrets in your liveliest places you cleaned and dressed my wounds and squared all of my debts lately every road spits me out at the edge of town your street signs, they make it so I can't get around every person that I see they pass without a sound I'm not sure how I got lost please just tell me how I can be found Lafayette One day, well your heart just went cold, chained the doors and sent the workers home You left me helpless and hopeless with no place to go and nothing with which to carry on Lafayette You covered up your discontent hid lonely factories 'neath a swell of business You turned your attention to suburbs and services filling houses that would never be homes Economy like love is never sustained by an exchange of services Nothing can replace the sweat and sacrifice that builds and brings about something new

about

Dustin Drennen Noxon, montana

Songs and poems from western Montana: a little folk and americana, a little Texas country, maybe more cowpunk, clear love of the West, especially the Northwest, an affinity for good beer, some romance and wreckage, some creepy tales, a general distrust for the establishment, a hopeful outlook all the same. ... more
