Music Monday: Griffin House, The Guy Who Says Goodbye to You ls Out Of His Mind

My first Music Monday! Thanks to Drew over at The Tattooed Book Geek!

I’ve been a Griffin House fan for a long time… He’s a singer/ songwriter playing folk-rock. And has been compared to Wilco, Ryan Adams, and a host of others in this same vein. I’ve seen him several times in concert and every time it’s a good night. I may try to see him again next month at the historic Sweetwater Hall in Mill Valley, Ca. We’ll see.

This is probably his best-known song… but he has several others that in my opinion are just as good. Check it out!

Come on
You don’t need to change
A thing about you, babe
I’m telling you from where I sit
You’re one of a kind
Relationships I don’t know why
They never work out and they make you cry
But the guy that says goodbye to you
Is out of his mind
Well, I’ve been down and I need your help
I’ve been feelin’ sorry for myself
Don’t hesitate to boost my confidence
Well, I’ve been lost and I need direction
I could use a little love protection
What do you say, honey? Come to my defense
I stand up for you if it’s what you need
And I can take a punch, I don’t mind to bleed
As long as afterwards you feel bad for me
And you give me all of your attention
I’ve got deep desire and it needs quenching
I think that’s pretty plain for you to see
Well, enough
