Iron & Wine - Waves of Galveston #New #MusicVideo #DianaMarySharpton #GrabTheBullbyHisHorns #LivingisToday

Introduction:

“Nothing happens in the "real" world unless it first happens in the images in our heads” 

Gloria Anzaldua


The song being featured this evening is titled "Waves Of Galveston"(2). Sung by an artist totally new to me but definitely got my attention. Iron &Wine, better know as Samuel Ervin Beam, is an amazing up and coming singer/songwriter. For all of those who want to know, he is from Chapin, South Carolina and currently lives in Austin, Texas.

"Waves Of Galveston" has touched my heart. Personally from Texas and intimately aware of the expectations in living here, I can tell you the verse is a story of truths for many people at so many levels. The words were the begining and the melody was the end for me. It's a good song. 

Most of "Iron & Wine's" genre is  Folk, folk rock, and indie folk. The song was written in 2013 from what I can gather; however it has not been added to any of his previous albums or officially released. It is my understanding from a post by "The Label"(4) "Waves Of Galveston" is the 2nd track on an new six song EP collection scheduled to be released on August 31, 2018. I can hardly wait. I know it will be a hit!  

The video was published on August 31, 2018 by SubPop.

I have listed the lyrics to the song below for your reading pleasure.

"Waves Of Galveston(3)


Leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause you've been hit behind the seawall, gently folded in the sand
Papa left you for Heaven after your Mama lost her song
And though your baby left you for Houston, no one stays there very long

There's a graveyard by the pizza parlor, a gate that only closes
Snowbirds fly away like secrets sn one really wants to know
The climbing moon's always shining on the kind of shells you keep
The broken horse tied to the water tower's running in his sleep

It's too bad that you ain't got a soft place to fall
It's too bad Texas leans to the least of us all
And says, "If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants"

So leave the waves of Galveston but only if you can
Cause it's the only place the Lone Star kind have offered you a hand
Your baby left you nothing and a dog was left for dead
You never knew you were a burden til it hit you on the head

It's too bad that you ain't got a soft place to fall
It's too bad Texas leans on the least in us all
And says, "If you can make the music then you can have the dance
If you can shoot the pistol then you can wear the pants"

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week-end and thank you as always for checking out my posts. I pray you’re having a blessed and safe day or evening regardless of where you might be in this world.

My words, my thoughts, my language...

Peace as always
Diana


In love with you all over again, Sugar...
