John Smith - Great Lakes

John Smith is one of the best folk artists that UK presents! His raw talent playing the guitar and the deep-scratchy voice makes you believe that he is like 70, but his image proves you wrong! He is young and talented and he has already released 4 albums. His last one "Great Lakes" will drive you into the love-land! He has played in every popular festival in UK and he was the support act for Ben Howard's tour.  Watch the sweet music video and read the lyrics here.




John Smith - Great LakesI get into the car, drive away from the life
Suddenly certain she won't be my wife
And the jewellery I gave her
Remains in the bottom of a draw

So I go to the water, it is time that I need
Oh my hearts wears a fancy dress, burst at the seams
All that had mattered and all that I've seen
Diving into the great lakes of love

It was foolish resistance 'til I heard in the distance
The drums of the band, they were beating persistently
Letting me know it's nothing but time to move on
Perhaps I'll see her around, hair up top down
And I could watch silently, making no sound
It would soften the blow to leave without saying Hello

So I go to the water, it is time that I need
Love is nothing, love is everything, it's never in between
All that had mattered and all that I've seen
Diving into the great lakes of love

The willow will bend and the wind it will bellow
Straight, straight to the shore
The lake is deception
She waits in the shallows
Swim, swim out for more

So I go to the water, it is time that I need
Oh my heart wears a fancy dress, burst at the seams
All that had mattered and that I've seen
Diving into the great lakes of love

I'm falling into the great lakes of love.
