Old Shaky (by June Star)

by June Star (featuring ellen cherry)

subscriber exclusive


This is a song by Andrew Grimm (June Star) for his subscription service here on bandcamp. Because I worked so hard on the backing vocals, he let me use it for my own subscription service. Enjoy!


these shaky hands
can no longer hold you
no more than they can
hold a cigarette

you can't drag someone
in to the future
if he's always holding on to regret

this bleeding heart
is hidden in my chest
locked up tight
with all the other ghosts

how it beats
is anyone's guess
someday it will stop
on its own

and I will never
get over you

I'm sorry that
I never listened to you
and you were yelling
loudly in my ear

now that we've told
each other's secrets
I guess there's nothing
left for us to fear

and I will never
get over you
and you will never
get over me, too

these shaky hands
are always waving at you
and I can't bare
to mention your name

if you need me
you know I cannot help you
everything we changed
has stayed the same

and I will never
get over you
and you will never
get over me, too
