What are the words I couldn't find? Maybe you know them better than me Without air we choked the flame Swallowing words I'll go the same Pick me up next weekend Let's hang out in a record store And play those songs they play no more Pick me up, don't put me down today Don't he do the things I do? Like compliment and say I love you And what about that card I wrote It brought a tear to your throat Pick me up next weekend Let's hang out in a record store And play those songs they play no more Pick me up, don't put me down today I've been playing this same old song I've been waiting so fucking long Pick me up next weekend Let's hang out in a record store And play those songs they play no more Pick me up, don't put me down today

Well, I gave her my name And she said it was the same As every guy that ever gave her a name So she gave me her name And I said it was the same As every girl that ever gave me a name So we went to the town, where the lights are down And everybody was hanging around I took a pill, and it made me ill For everybody that ever took a pill So she gave me her number And we went undercover And I told her love was unlike any other So I gave her my number And we went undercover And she told me my love was unlike any other So we went to the town, where the lights are down And everybody was hanging around I walked a line, and wound up doing time For everybody that ever walked a line

Sitting alone in my bedroom of ashes My anger slowly fades A breeze from the window attacks where the past is The light gives in to shade today I feel like running away If you remember my 5th of November I'll remember yours Pick up the pieces of glass from the embers The loss we can't afford I feel like running away Sitting alone in my bedroom of ashes My anger slowly fades A breeze from the window attacks where the past is The past has nothing to say anyway I feel like running away

Sometimes you want to be there just for yourself And I know you're tired of pleasing somebody else When the sun comes shining through on the shelf The dawn breaks the life you led in the dream Leave the guilt for someone else who deserves the fall Burn the book and rewrite it all Sometimes you want to be there just for yourself The ashtray is full of dust from the past Remember the hopes you had in your teens When you're not falling apart at the seams

She gets drunk and she can't talk She wears heels and she can't walk She's got a laugh we hide behind She's like stepping on a landmine But she glides with a rhythm Wrapped up in ribbons She sees things that we can't see She'd find better men than me But as we dance in a silhouette She ain't found a better man yet And she glides with a rhythm Wrapped up in ribbons As she glides her way to the organ tune A silk embrace underneath the moon A dance with death and I think I've fallen for her As if she'd fall for a devil like me Out of the sky from those ribbons be free But if she did, I'd be there waiting for her Now she's the queen of the big show And she smiles with a faint glow She got tequila in her grenadine And a double shot of rhythmeen And she glides with a rhythm And she's prone to indecision And you'll find her lately Just gliding with a rhythm Wrapped up in ribbons

about

Acoustic EP recorded in 2016. The title of the album relating to "a quick drink", the price of the download is set at 30 Czech Koruna, which is around the price of the average pint in CZ. Buy my record, buy me a beer.

"There is a tradition of rock and rollers picking up the acoustic and ploughing the lone furrow and Craggy is no different, following his heart and making music that we all love and making it to a very high standard. As you will quickly appreciate from the first listen it's obvious this guy loves it and believes in the awesome powers of rock and roll." - Dom Daley in Uber Rock
