  1. Twisted Velvet

From the recording Turtleback Mountain

Lyrics

Last night the waves grew tall as LA’s downtown skyscrapers
And crashed upon my sailboat again
At first I tried to navigate them or negate them
But I ended up just hoping I would drown

And that’s how it feels sometimes
Like life’s a puzzle I can’t figure out what rhymes with me
But I love that twisted velvet skirt upon the darkness
As she twirls across the ballroom floor
The ballroom floor

Last night the walls grew thin as paper and you lit a match
The flames so hot it turned my heart to ice
I guess I’m back to writing sad songs like when I was twenty one
I tend to find the truth more fun

And that’s how it feels sometimes
So tired of smiley sun and heart emojis on the run
Yeah I love that twisted velvet skirt upon the darkness
As she twirls across the ballroom floor
The ballroom floor

Isn’t it so romantic
Dancing with you darling
In this ancient aching waltz

I’ve got a twisted velvet smile upon my face
As we twirl across the ballroom floor

Last night the waves grew tall as LA’s downtown skyscrapers
And crashed upon my sailboat again
