about

This track is from an unreleased album (hard drive crashed) recording around 2006 (?). I used the original bed tracks, but updated the vocals and added some cello and violin and keyboards. It was inspired by a guy named Bob that I met while attending Carleton University. He was a great guy, but he had a passion for singing very depressing songs.

lyrics

ODE TO BOB

Sitting here in this vacuum
It’s all that you left behind for me
It’s a wonder my head don’t explode
My thoughts are bleeding out my ears
And I don’t know why

My heart keeps beating on at all
I don’t know why, my heart keeps
Beating on at all

Perched like a gargoyle by the phone
I’ve got no pride when it comes to being alone
You said my heart was like a wheel
Well if that’s so, then mine’s been
Rolling over glass
Rolling over glass
And I don’t know why

My heart keeps beating on at all
I don’t know why, my heart keeps
Beating on at all

I guess there was a problem
Guess there always was a problem
Though I always said “no problem”, anyway
I guess there was an answer
Guess there always was an answer
Even though I always said “no way”

I’m beat like a dog but what the heck
My spirit’s broken and my life’s a complete wreck
It’s a wonder I still go out at all
I heed the call, ‘cause after all
I don’t know why…

My heart keeps beating on at all.
I don’t know why, my heart keeps
Beating on at all, beating on at all,
Beating on at all
