BandPopSinger/Songwriter

A swiss-army knife of acoustic pop songcraft, John Gorman enraptures audiences with a tongue-in-cheek playfulness and enthralling melodic gifts that spin conventions of singer-songwriterdom on their heads. He draws heavily from soul, pop, folk and rock with impressive aplomb and unvarnished beauty.

Lyrics

Lease

Written By: John Gorman

Smoke that cigarette my boy and drink that whiskey down
It's half-past midnight in the cold dark morning of a grey sky dead-end town
Keg stand bar dancer in the corner giving out 'take me to the bedroom' eyes
But the conversation is degradation so tell me what you're doing 'round about sunrise
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
I really really think I'll lease you
For the price of a dinner and a one-night stay
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really wanna know your name
That's a goddamn shame
Crunk all your friends they are growing old
With a wife and a kid and a dog and a home
While you ghost-ride whipping all your single friends
Cul-de-sac asking how the story ends
Well it's a sad sad feature for the newscast
But it'd never even make the broadcast
There's no romancing when the has-been's dancing to
The sound of a youth that's fading fast
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
I really really think I'll lease you
For the price of a dinner and a one-night stay
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really wanna know your name
That's a goddamn shame
You are my silver medal dry those tears
I'm here to calm all your deepest fears
I ain't never gonna leave you all alone
For the night, anyway, I'll be gone in the morning
Jetpack to the nearest exit
No address, no number, no friend request
And you can like my status if you like my status
It's complicated ... I just thought I'd confess
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really want to know your name
I really really think I'll lease you
For the price of a dinner and a one-night stay
It's really really nice to meet you
But I don't really wanna know your name
That's a goddamn shame

A Thousand Words

Written By: John Gorman

The sun seeps yellow drops
Falling down from skies of grey
Tomorrow did a time switch
Trading places with yesterday
The silence of a thousand words
Paint a picture of the life I lead
Curse the sun and pray for rain
Water set the music free
Don't let life ever run away from me
Confused and ignorant
Let me be none of these
For a man who don't know what he want
Will never do just what he please
The silence of a thousand words
Paint a picture of the life I lead
Curse the sun and pray for rain
Water set the music free
Don't let life ever run away from me
