JASON ISBELL Brand New Kind Of Actress

Welcome to thetheologyofjoe Lyrics JASON ISBELL Brand New Kind Of Actress Lyrics, singer by JASON ISBELL

You said you heard of me, so why are you so afraid?

some minor changes made, you missed the big parade
another filthy day, another Hollywood sign
you missed the caution line, and you just walked right in.
YOU WALKED RIGHT IN
there’s somebody here, somebody you once knew
you took a liking to, your conversation cues
the way you cut your hair, the time you did it yourself
you’re like a hired help, the way you fit right in
THE WAY YOU FIT RIGHT IN

‘CAUSE YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE THE SAME OLD STUBBORN WAITRESS, BABY
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS

you swim the the other way, you put your seat upstream
so many hopes and dreams, so many in betweens
your new reality, just make yourself at home
he’s always watchin’ me, he’ never been alone
SO YOU JUST WALKED RIGHT IN

‘CAUSE YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE THE SAME OLD STUBBORN WAITRESS, BABY
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS

you met that greasy guy, I don’t care what you did
in 1965, before the wife and kid
I’ll leave my jacket on, so sorry I can’t stay
just put the piece away.
just put the piece away, let me call a cab
we’ll go our separate ways, we’ll go our separate ways
just put the piece away, I don’t care what you did
back in younger days, just put the piece away
PUT IT AWAY

‘CAUSE YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
YOU’RE THE SAME OLD STUBBORN WAITRESS, BABY
YOU’RE A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS

‘CAUSE I’M A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
I’M A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS
I’M THE SAME OLD STUBBORN WAITRESS, BABY
I’M A BRAND NEW KIND OF ACTRESS

JASON ISBELL To A Band That I Loved

Welcome to thetheologyofjoe Lyrics JASON ISBELL To A Band That I Loved Lyrics, singer by JASON ISBELL

Though everyone tried to ignore us
We’d scared them all off by the chorus
There you stood looking proud
What was left of the crowd at our show
And I was 22 backwoods years old

You were singing that night by yourself
And I thought I was the only one left
From an old southern town
New ideas bouncing round in my head
And I thought everyone like me was dead

And somehow you put down my fears on a page
When I still had nothing to say
And how I miss you today
May you find what you gave, all that hope
Somewhere down at the end of your rope

Now I know you’ll be fine on your own
And your families all need you at home
And the dream was just smoke
At least you all got the joke off the bat
And you were alright with that

And somehow I’m still out here burning my days
Your voice makes the miles melt away
I’ll be guarding your place
In the lights on the stage of my heart
I guess we’re all still finding our part

And somehow I’m still out here seeing your faces
In likely and unlikely places
Somewhere playing too loud
Or in what’s left of the crowd at our show
Hanging out when it’s past time to go
Hanging out when it’s past time to go

JASON ISBELL Palmetto Rose

Welcome to thetheologyofjoe Lyrics JASON ISBELL Palmetto Rose Lyrics, singer by JASON ISBELL

Palmetto rose in the A/C vent
Cross-stitch pillow where the headrest went
Said his cab was his orneriest friend
Left hand jumping the trees in the wind

Thought he had the red lights memorized
Glass in the gravel like the stars in the sky
In that slow-motion minute between living and dead
He looked in my eyes and he told me, he said

It’s war that I wage to get up every day
It’s a fiberglass boat, it’s azaleas in May
It’s the women I love and the law that I hate
But Lord, let me die in the Iodine State
Lord, let me die in the Iodine State

Palmetto rose in the sidewalk mud
Dirty white stem and a big green bud
Catch them coming out of a King Street store
Some bullshit story about the Civil War

Now, you can believe what you want to believe
But there ain’t no making up a basket weave
Everybody in the tri-county knows
Who makes the best palmetto rose

And it’s war that we wage to get up every day
It’s a basket of sweetgrass, a wedding bouquet
It’s the ladies I love and the law that I hate
But Lord, let me die in the Iodine State
Lord, let me die in the Iodine State

Out on Sullivan’s Island, they’re swimming
On the beach where the big boats rolled in
With the earliest slaves and their children
Our first American kin

Here on King Street we’re selling our roses
Two for a five dollar bill
At night, after everything closes
I follow my own free will
And I take in my fill
I take in my fill

JASON ISBELL Hudson Commodore

Welcome to thetheologyofjoe Lyrics JASON ISBELL Hudson Commodore Lyrics, singer by JASON ISBELL

Time between the glory days and the golden years
She did the work of 20 able men
Sent Tommy off to school to be an engineer
And Sarah went to try out all the sins

She took to taking tea out in the Belvedere
Bourbon in the evenings by the fire
As if the Great Depression never made it here
As if she had defeated her desire

She just wanted to ride in a Delahaye 135
She just wanted to ride in a Hudson Commodore
No need to worry anymore

A doctor then a lawyer then a Roosevelt
Tried to take her underneath their wing
She was in her 20’s in the Bible Belt
Before she knew she didn’t need a thing

She didn’t need their pity on a single girl
She didn’t need their help to raise the brood
She wouldn’t be returning to her daddies world
She didn’t want a better attitude

She just wanted to ride in a Delahaye 135
She just wanted to ride in a Hudson Commodore
No need to worry anymore

She just wanted to ride in a Delahaye 135
She just wanted to ride in a Hudson Commodore
No need to worry anymore
