A banger of a song about the time that you said something nice when you should have said something mean. Just play this song next time.


Honey I don't know just where you'll sleep tonight.
I don't think it matters 'cause I don't want to fight.
So, don't bother reaching out just to make you feel good.
And there ain't no sense in doing what your conscience thinks you should.

Because I know you're not my lover and I don't think you're my friend.
So, please don't make me say this again.

I hope that it hurts when you need someone to hold.
I hope you find it hard to breathe and your bed is always cold.
I hope you sing the blue notes in all your favorite songs.
And I hope you never find anyone that will ever sing along,,,,
not like me.

Honey, I 'm glad just that you're out of sight.
'Cause if you were here and you heard these words, I know there'd be a fight.
So, I won't bother calling you just to make myself feel strong.
And we don't make no harmony so, I won't sing along.


I hope you never find happy and I hope you never find well.
I hope that no one finds you locked inside yourself.
Locked inside yourself.

Heavy soul and a modern take on American Roots Music. Jackie steals hearts in hopes of repairing his own. He travels through time in search of a place to rest. At the end of the track, there is only more track and it's always rough.
