from by Dusty Stray



They say that you’re stepping down
Giving away your crown
Well that’s astounding
Your reign tangled up in crime
But you’re not doing time
Well that’s confounding

In your kingdom change is in the air
Dancing singing parties everywhere
Now that you’re gone
Gone gone gone

Though you kissed amphibians
Never transformations – none
All that you touch turns to trash
Burning up all that cash – in a heartbeat

In your kingdom monuments will fall
Like you’ve never been there at all
Already gone
Gone gone gone

DUSTY STRAY features the alt-folk repertoire of Texan songster Jonathan Brown which delves into universal themes of unrequited love, heartbreak, loneliness and death but (almost) always with a small dose of hope and redemption.
