Just In Case Anyone's Feeling Too Cheery Right Now

Here's a light little ditty by James McMurtry, recorded live in the WNKU studio:

Ruby And Carlos (from Just Us Kids) - and a short little interview at the end.

Her body still could rock all nigh
But her heart was closed and locked up tight
Holding back the flood
Just don’t do no good
You can’t unclench your teeth
To howl the way you should
So you curl your lips around
The taste of tears and a hollow sound
That no one owns but you
No one owns but you

Thanks a lot, McMurtry. Would it kill you to sing about flowers and rainbows? Just once?
