Lezers,

heden ontdekten wij Joe Pug, een singer-songwriter uit Chicago. Luistert u vooral naar het hartverscheurende ‘Not So Sure’ van zijn meest recente album ‘Messenger’. Misschien wel een van de mooiste liedjes van 2010 tot nu toe……

There was a time when I heard you calling out my name
But these days I’m not so sure
When the room went dark and your voice was gone, I heard you all the same
But these days I’m not so sure
I knew I could remember your bedroom and your touch
But these days I’m not so sure
Definitely was the word I used far too much
Cause these days I’m not so sure
I bummed expensive cigarettes
I wrote John Steinbeck’s books
I undressed someone’s daughter and then complained about her looks
Stealing was so easy then I wish that it still were
Now as I pick my own pocket I know these days I’m not so sure
The church was my kitchen, the world was my church
But these days I’m not so sure
The choirs I would listen, the briers I would search
But these days I’m not so sure
I sacrificed my sister, I prayed my own soul to keep
I told my dying father that a man should never weep
Breathing was so easy then I wish that it still were
Now as the breeze just makes me colder, I know these days I’m not so sure
So if you see me tripping, I’ve forgotten how to walk
and I spend my days wishing after her
My steps are without rhythm and her name is drawn in chalk
as these days I’m not so sure
I drank my wine for breakfast every morning I was born
in the black electric winter my back was always warm
Sleeping was so easy then I wish that it still were
Now in my sleepless bedroom, I know these days I’m not so sure.
