As you know me, you know I like to keep my chatting short and sweet.
It's really for the sake of who's listening.
Typically, when I'm long-winded, it's pretty lame.

But as opinions bleed out, I'll make it quick before your records wear out-
I'll raise my voice on the subject of subtle sounds
and talk your ear off to a point of ironic interest
on early '60s portraits
through antique grooves.

You say, "This could be you, Columbia aught '62, all dolled up in a blue classic background.
And this could be me, Atlantic aught '63, in a suit poised alone, to spin solos as stories."
But you and I could never be that lavish.
It's a point of ironic interest towards
toward early '60s portraits
through antique grooves.

    General CommentFrom Evan in a live version on youtube: 'It's about arguing about jazz with your friend, and in this situation I was Miles Davis and she was Billie Holiday'

    I can't make out what he says after that.
