"Lovestain" as written by and Jose Gonzalez....
You left a love stain on my heart
And you left a bloodstain on the ground
But blood comes off easily

But blood comes off easily

You left a love stain on my heart
And you left a bloodstain on the ground
But blood comes off easily

But blood comes off easily

    General CommentI'm a bit confused by such enthusiasm for JG lyrics.

    Don't get me wrong I think he's a fabulous musician, I love his album (one of the best of 2005). But I still feel like he is a rather sub-par lyricist.

    It's not so much the extreme repetition that happens in his song, but I feel that overall he doesn't expresses much. Maybe I'm just dense to those lyrics.

    I read an interview in which he said he always wrote the music first, and then add some lyrics. He was rather dismissive himself as to his quality as a writer.

    General CommentYou left a lovestain on my heart
    And you left a bloodstain on the ground
    But blood comes off easily

    But blood comes off easily


    that could be considered a poem
    it's so effortless and simple, but very effective
    i don't know what people are talking about
    his lyrics have a style and are very poetic

    General CommentBlood Comes off easly with water, When someone effects your heart, It stays forever, Also you can choose to wash blood, you can not choose to wash your heart clean, His woman left him, it sucks

    General Commentbefore you go ripping JG, maybe you should know this is a cover song. he didn't write the lyrics, I don't believe.

    General CommentI have to agree with Bearded.
    He has great musical talent.
    But his lyrics could use a little work.

    General Commenti think, as with many things, it comes down to personal preference.
    but consider this.
    how easy is it to say exactly what you feel? maybe add a few words that rhyme with eachother?
    now think about taking a load of feelings, something as complex as a love situation and condensing that into only few short lines.
    for me, again a personal belief, simpilicity will forever hold complexity better then complexity ever did.
    for those of you who consider yourself accomplished or simply good at writing, i challenge you: listen to jose's music, try and write your own set of lyrics. i dare you to not change his style.
    the eerie overhangs that seem to haunt you. if you dont like him you, simply dont like his music. his lyrics and chords go hand in hand. they make eachother what they are.
