The thing you got to love most about Jeff Pianki is that he wears his heart on his sleeve. His voice, the words he chooses and the sincere way in which he conveys these words simply made it impossible not to feature him. What a great singer/songwriter. Check out Missing Parts and This Town. Just try not to believe each and every word that comes out of this guy’s mouth.

Missing Parts

Music Video

Lyrics

It’s been ten years
And I’ve got my new set of scars
From broken hearts and broken arms
From chasing after where you are

I’ve cried a couple tears
Been taking everything too far
And running around in the dark
Trying to finish what I couldn’t start

So who’s gonna love you now
That gravity brought you down
Now that I’m not around
Who’s gonna love you now?

This is where you disappear
After playing all your favorite cards
A father, but just on my charts
You leave before it gets too hard

So what are you doing here
When everyone is at the bar
Filling in the missing parts
And here we are

So who’s gonna love you now
That gravity brought you down
Now that I’m not around
Who’s gonna love you now?

This Town

Video

Lyrics

I still remember this town
Though it’s been years since I’ve been around
All the stores boarded up, changed names or burnt down
But I still remember this town

I still remember the storms
The fireplace burned just to keep our house warm
How we all felt so brave when we were misinformed
But I still remember the storms

I haven’t forgotten this street
The burning, cracked blacktop beneath my bare feet
Through unbearable winters and covered concrete
I haven’t forgotten this street

I haven’t forgotten your face
So many memories time couldn’t erase
And an old picture book holds each one just in case
But I haven’t forgotten your face

I still can’t remember my dreams
But recall you telling me yours frequently
And wishing I could pull one out of my sleeve
But I still can’t remember my dreams

But I still remember this town
Rusted old streetlights and snow on the ground
Though the home I once knew is not the home that I’ve found
I still remember this town.
