Joseph Arthur

Here’s a really cool tune (and an even cooler music video) by Joseph Arthur, a singer songwriter from Akron, Ohio. Relationships can be such a drag sometimes. Here’s the proof:

Devil’s Broom

Music Video

Lyrics

In the time when I can’t get enough to make it
Get me back at the sense that I used to have
Waking up in the sun, face down on the pavement
Everything I own in a garbage bag

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can’t you see?
You mean everything to me.

Waking up in the tank, disorderly break-up
And no one here will even tell me what I did
With the guilt and the shame completely vacant
It’s hard to stay alive when you don’t know how to live

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can’t you see?
You mean everything to me.

Since you’ve gone ain’t nobody else gonna save me
Cause I can’t trade a bottle for an empty room
I just pray that the lord is gonna come down and take me
Sweep me off the floor with the devil’s broom

Where are you?
What did I do?
Why can’t you see?
You mean everything to me.
