I <3 DAVID GRAY

Quote:
Lightening strikes
And silver motorbikes
Are roaring down the open road
Wind on my skin
I'm hungry to begin
And my cup has overflowed

So let fall the rain
Down into these desert veins
I'm taking back what they stole
While there's diamonds in the mind
Can't afford to be continued
By someone else's pigeonhole

So I made up my mind
I made up my mind
Gonna move on ahead
Stead of lagging behind

Half past seven
And way up in the heaven
The stars are singing in the sky
Lying half dressed
Your head upon my breast
Listening to the oceans lullaby

Standing where we are
It seems so far
From the cold light of day
Where the faces full of grief
And the grinding of the teeth
Been eating my belief away

Cracks in the veneer
The light so severe
Shining down the avenue
Try to join the throng
But its feeling all wrong
What are you supposed to do

Shoulder that despair
Take a lung of dirty air
Turn to watch the sun set red
On the ruins of a culture
And a sky that's filled with vultures
Circling over your head!
i have been on a huge(ly obsessive) david gray kick for about 6 months now, and i am kicking myself for not getting into him earlier. i have pretty much everything released at this point, and a bunch of live only stuff, and he is just such an incredibly lyricist. i love his voice too, i am so weird.

anyone else?

y'all better or you'll get the , just fyi.

One of my favorite artsits. Seen him three times, and hope to again soon. One of the most passionate performers out there today.

I like David Gray, he's up there on my favorites. I haven't really looked into getting any live stuff though.

Gray's cool, ain't no love is probably one of my favorite songs

"Some days I'm bursting at the seams
With all my half remembered dreams
And then it shoots me down again "

He's a musician that grabs you even more when you see him live. Saw him a couple of years ago in texas and hooked ever since.

Recently, I've been obsessed with lately and shine

Might be the best lyricist out there. If not the best, then the most consistent anyway. I've been listening to The Light a ton lately for some reason.
