Jeremy Messersmith‘s songwriting would have landed him this feature anyway but these two music videos certainly sweetened the deal. Feast your eyes (and ears) on these:

A Girl, A Boy And A Graveyard

Music Video

Lyrics

Lucy takes the long way home
Meets me in a field of stone
She says “I don’t know how I’m supposed to feel
My body’s cold my guts are twisted steel.”

And I feel like I’m some kind of frankenstein
Waiting for a shock to bring me back to life
But I don’t want to spend my time
Waiting for lightning to strike.

So underneath the concrete sky
Lucy puts her hand in mine
She says “life’s a game we’re meant to lose.
But stick by me and I will stick by you.”

‘Cause I’m like a princess in a castle high
Waiting for a kiss to bring me back to life
But i don’t want to spend my time
Waiting for just another guy.

Lyrics

I was born in a mortuary
Full of worry
Ice water in my veins
Gave my heart in the school library
Never knew her name

Lost my tongue in the sanctuary
“Heaven spare me!”
Hands raised above my head
Sent my brain to the seminary
Never seen again…

Swing low
Grey bones
I don’t know
If I’ll ever be whole again

Left my spine in the wedding chapel
Full of people
Feet turning into lead
Lost a leg at the iron foundry
Where they found me dead

Drained my blood at the mortuary
No more worry
Ice water in my veins
Took my bones to the cemetary
Where they still remain

Swing low
Grey bones
I don’t know
If I’ll ever be whole again
