"Hows About Tellin a Story" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
Well how's about tellin' a story
One that's really about somebody
What they saw and what they did
How they died and how they lived
By the time I found a name I moved onto another game
Called write a song toes and spines god damn
Now I can't think of any story lines
But you know I'd love to try and sing about a person, place, or thing
Mansonite and the Wolfman, Katmandu, and Honest Abe
Something happens up in Tucson and then it happens again in Maine

    General CommentI think a lot of writers go through this when they have the block, trying to find some tale with a backbone or coincidence to engage the reader(or listener).
