Finally, Joshua Jesty is Having a Nervous Breakdown

by joshua jesty

getting old is getting old makes feel kinda numb I was almost getting decent at being young I don't care what it takes I'll fight anything with you I don't care where we go I'll run anywhere with you played dead for a year or two take off your funeral dress darling we've got dancing to do
For a Moment 04:26
the bitter that comes after the sweet on the tip of your tongue now ain't it the words "you belong to me" for a moment you were buying it for a moment you were buying it
Wash Away 01:34
There is nothing that will not wash away
I gotta get out of this party I want to be the guy who you're waiting with your friends to arrive to take you dancing
get in you head dress you up with false platitudes I know the whole damn playbook I couldn't leave you alone I couldn't leave you alone I couldn't leave you alone one of them boys will get you
oh I had no doubts but I see now there's just power lines over your house
You feel so cold and it's nothing you want to weather borrow my sweater it's all I've got to give but its yours if you want
stop showing your tattoos stop pleading your case get out of my swimsuit get out of the rain
somewhere in the middle between wrong and right I found an excuse Stranger in a Spiderweb Stranger in a Spiderweb asking to be cut loose
it ain't called Smarting around so let's try to not be surprised by the final bell I said cool to you and you didn't laugh and we're down for whatever keeps it now
I will comfort you when and if you come my way
Thanks for coming see you next time and if no next time may you hold this time near if you need it know I loved you and I'm so thankful that we somehow ended up here thanks for coming see you next time


This is the 7th or 9th record Joshua has made during the month of February over the course of his illustrious career. Scouts honor, all of these songs were written, re-written, arranged, performed, produced, recorded and lightly mixed by Joshua Jesty with the help of a few friends.

Some of these songs may return in a more remixed fashion later on.

For now, enjoy the thrill of a record being written and recorded as quickly as possible. Since it's not my first run I think there's a lot of good stuff in here to hear you hear.
