lyrics

The Joke

it takes a while, to cut the diamond face
drawn on a desperate man, yeah
- coolin' my hips to judge lines in the terrain
i'll suffer your smile where i stand
because hey, - this one's on me
- try to lend a hand and i'll shoot
this one's on me
alright

been standin' around, tell-no-tales corner
- thinking, somehow there's got to be a blessing here
but if i move, my lip's split, - my next step is broken glass
you left me a wish, baby it's still lyin' where you passed
because hey, - this one's on me
every letter
this one's on me
alright

and it's hard to fake
- the joke, it was all lost on me
whatever is on
this one's on me

i'm bearin' down now, yeah man, i'm ultra-montane
i spent the night, thinkin' 'sun!'
you will, again, live to remember the midnight-tryst
and i still may end up with some extra lines on my wrists
because hey, this one's on me
try to lend a hand and i'll shoot
this one's on me
alright

and it's hard to fake
the joke?, - it was all lost on me
whatever is on
this one's on me
listen
this one's on me
this one's on me

about

David Corley Lafayette, Indiana

David Corley endured a not so idyllic childhood on a horse farm in the town of Lafayette in Indiana despite loving, close knit family relations with his grandma Annabelle, mother Sarah, sister Annie and their two dogs "Moose" and "Ox". One of the banes of his early existence came in the form of piano lessons. for more info and longer bio, please go to: davidcorleymusic.com/bio/ ... more
