lyrics

Jetstream Sunset

Fly me up to the old jetstream, fly me up to the old jetstream

Earlier today out on the street I met a friend, I had to get away
Sometimes you know we all just need some time alone
Doesn't matter anyway he's on that phone throughout the day
I wonder if his voice inside his own head its own self ever gets lonely from neglect
Catching kisses in the jetstream waking up from nice dreams
Think I'll buy myself an ice cream Coney Island you are a freak show and I love you so
much to do I don't know how I will get through but something always comes along
that makes me want to sing another song I wonder if it might find me today

And fly me up to the old jetstream…

Holy Moly Joe goes on and on about 'flow' he never stops
but he never seems to go anywhere he's like a concrete business building
wishing he'd been born a river
River Phoenix was the older brother of Joaquin, a bright young actor on the screen
Now he's all but forgotten
I guess it's hard to see that line before too late and much too soon
Went to work at sixteen came back home at sixty-nine can hardly remember
What happened in between
Some drive-in movies, and some golf balls on the Moon
Later on that day I met my friend again and said come on and turn that phone off man
Let's just go sit and watch the river like we did in the old days

Fly us up to the old jetstream…

about

Thomas Truax London, UK

"Thomas Truax crafts rich, poetically evocative songs about insects, trees, technology, and a lifelong obsession with all things lunar. He travels the world performing with his "band" of bizarre self-made instruments including a motorized drum machine made with bike wheels and a souped-up Gramophone called 'The Hornicator', as well as his venerable guitar 'Hank'.
