Ho Hey.

02 Nov Ho Hey.

I really am enthused about the current generation of pop coming up. Nuance is back, and I love it. Mumford and Sons, the Lumineers, even Funhas depth and thought behind their music.

Out of everything, I’m hearing now, it’s “HO Hey” by the Lumineers that resonates with me the most and most often. I had my kids sing it because they hear it so much. Ruby calls it the “sleeping in my bed” song.

The “real” version.


And, I like everything about this song. The length, the message, the “ruckus”.
ERSE
I’VE BEEN TRYING TO DO IT RIGHT
I’VE BEEN LIVING A LONELY LIFE
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING HERE INSTEAD
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED,
I’VE BEEN SLEEPING IN MY BED
SO SHOW ME FAMILY
ALL THE BLOOD THAT I WILL BLEED
I DUNNO WHERE I BELONG
I DUNNO WHERE I WENT WRONG,
BUT I CAN WRITE A SONG
CHORUS
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEET
VERSE
I DON’T THINK YOU’RE RIGHT FOR HIM
THINK OF WHAT IT MIGHT HAVE BEEN IF YOU
TOOK A BUS TO CHINATOWN
I’D BE STANDING ON CANAL, AND BOWERY
AND SHE’D BE STANDING NEXT TO ME
CHORUS
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
BRIDGE

AND LOVE, WE NEED IT NOW
LET’S HOPE FOR SOME
CAUSE OH, WE’RE BLEEDING OUT
CHORUS

I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEETHEART
I BELONG WITH YOU, YOU BELONG WITH ME
YOU’RE MY SWEET

Art is what you make it, right? And I get out of this someone that’s trying to make a commitment to something, someone, somewhere, trying to be happy. Trying to reckon with it all. That’s where I am.
