Last night about 15 or so of us went to see Amos Lee at the Murat in Indianapolis. And I mostly sat quietly and took it all in. We saw him last year at the Bluebird in Bloomington – my first time seeing him live – and it’s just the kind of laid back night of introspection about love and loss, family and friends, and the curves of life that I enjoy. Here’s a glimpse of his song, Violin, with lyrics like:
Lately I, every time I try to lie down
Well my mind just gets away
I can’t even close my eyes now
Between the big fish ambition, and the lovers
Using words as ammunition
I don’t feel like this now, but is there a person alive who hasn’t been touched by similar feelings at some point?
