James Vincent McMorrow-Gold

The statistics show that you really love the new album by James Vincent McMorrow because two of the songs of the tracklist are already in the top 5 of the posts on Lyrics On My Wall. Today, we have the chance to post the BRAND NEW music video for "Gold" which is premiered at noisey.com. McMorrow has a poetic way to write lyrics and he is not afraid to experiment between the music genres, without giving a damn about being labeled. What is excellent about this particular song is the melody and the dramatic sense in it. You could easily imagine it as a soundtrack to the most dramatic scenes of a heartbreaking movie. Some people just love that! Watch the great music video directed by Emma J Doyle featuring one talented roller skater old enough to disprove the last line of the track: "Time wasn't the only coward".


James Vincent McMorrow-Gold

how was the cold
along the path i determined to hold
although it coiled round a perilous wing
blinded by hot gas and carving off steam
there was still smoke

burnt in the grass
reclaim a portion of desolate south
add in the stirrings and long lost fatigue
barrels that hide us in hair fallen heed
then became sound

i wasn't afforded a love
covered up in hard earned clay
i wasn't accorded a stop
always in it so much more
i wasn't afforded a love
covered up in hard earned clay
time wasn't the only cavernous

I hope my contour charts show up via rivers
out to the only ocean
there's something peaceful that goes out via river
out to the ocean
i was peaceful standing, i was open

i wasn't afforded a love
covered up in hard earned clay
i wasn't accorded a stop
always in it so much more
i wasn't afforded a love
covered up in hard earned clay

time wasn't the only cavernous
time wasn't the only cavernous
time wasn't the only cavernous
time wasn't the only coward
