RIP David Berman

This one hurts. Silver Jews have been one of my favourite bands for a decade, and his recent comeback album reignited my love for his words and music. I've been wandering around Thailand for the last month listening to it. RIP to one of the greats.
1Silver Jews
American Water


I wrote a letter to wild flower on a classic nitrogen afternoon / some power that hardly looked like power said I'm perfect in an empty room
2Silver Jews
The Natural Bridge


What if life is just some hard equation on a chalkboard in a science class for ghosts / You can live again, but you'll have to die twice in the end / In the end, we'll meet again
3Silver Jews
Starlite Walker


Half hours on earth...what are they worth, I don't know / In 27 years I've drunk fifty thousand beers, and they just wash against me, like the sea into a pier...
4Silver Jews
Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea


Somewhere in a foggy atlas, lookout mountain, lookout sea / first life takes time then time takes life / now the next move's up to me
5Silver Jews
Bright Flight


I have not avoided certainty, it was always just eluded me / I wish I knew, I wish I knew for true / I wish I had a rhinestone suit, I wish I had a new pair of boots, but mostly I wish, I wish I was with you.
6Silver Jews
Tanglewood Numbers


And in the end we must be who we are
7Purple Mountains
Purple Mountains


On holidays in lonely haunts, at closing time in restaurants / I can't keep on pretending not to see, yeah I'm starting to suspect though I hope I'm incorrect / That maybe I'm the only one for me
