At My Most Lonesome

from Romantic Music For Perverts by Black Hay



Still a little lower than the angels, you can hold a candle
But some love is too hot to handle so let it burn
A pretty boy in an ugly crowd, chasing pretty girls to hold them down
And see how far they really want to go

At my most lonesome I wonder where it went
The return on any and all of my passion spent
Little pieces crumble off one at a time
But don’t look back on what you leave behind

Sometimes opening my mouth is like screaming in the canyon
All the little birds just fly away
Met with only glazed eyes when I seek out my companions
In the tail-lights of another passing day

At my most lonesome Watching you all have your fun
Wondering how you’re full of joy when all this leaves me numb
You can’t blame me for wanting more than I have found
And I can’t blame you for letting me down

And you come from such loving kin, I never thought they’d let me in
To a house so warm and food that tastes so good
I gave all I had to share but words rise up like more hot air
And I’ll never know how much was understood

At my most lonesome saying someone else’s prayers
Picturing my lover taking someone new upstairs
Each new trail leads me back to the start
Knowing it’s all built to fall apart
Knowing it’s all built to fall apart
It’s all built to fall

Black Hay London, UK

Black Hay is the project of London-born Gideon K and a motley crew of collaborators.

Previously described as "Worse than Leonard Cohen", Black Hay's music has gone from noirish garage rock, to grungey alt-country low-rock, via DIY house-bound balladry, to a current incarnation of cold-hearted post-punk indie synth-tronica.

The new single 'Always Be Mine' is out now.
