Judging by his name, Benjamin Francis Leftwich should be president (or at least assassinate one) but he decided to pursue a singer/songwriter’s career and that was definitely a wise move on his part. Great lyrics, beautiful tunes and gorgeous music videos. Gotta love this guy. Check out Atlas Hands and Pictures:

Lyrics

Take me to the docks, there’s a ship without a name
It is sailing to the middle of the sea
The water there is deeper than anything you’ve ever seen
Jump right in and swim until you freeze

I will remember your face
‘Cause I am still in love with that place
But when the stars are the only things we share
Will you be there?

Money came like rain to your hands while you were waiting
For that cold long promise to appear
People in the churches started singing above their hands
They said: “My God is a good God and he cares”

I will remember your face
‘Cause I am still in love with that place
When the stars are the only things we share
Will you be there?

I’ve got a plan
I’ve got an atlas in my hands
I’m gonna turn when I listen to the lessons that I’ve learned

Lyrics

If you crash your car into
Your best friends’ house,
Would you be quiet as
Words came out of their mouth.

Stop, don’t do it
I have been waiting for it,
Stop, I knew it would come.

If you find a guard next to
Your girlfriends’ bed,
Would it be hard to
Sort out your spinning head.

Stop, don’t say that dear,
That you wanted him here,
Stop, don’t give him a clear.

Take a picture of them,
Take a picture of them.

If you are afraid don’t be,
I have the whole thing planned,
We’ll start in the ocean baby,
And when we find the land,
We will be thankful to
All of our friends,
That they didn’t leave us,
As we got to the end.

Take a picture of them,
Take a picture of them,
Take a picture of them,
Take a picture of them.

If you find your faith in
Your parents’ god,
Dont be so quick to
Point out the flaws in it.

You’ve been around and you’ve seen,
The way that things work,
But you need a compass to
Get around your house.
