A pop blues and at 2:38, a real breakthrough of the three minute barrier for songwriter Dave Graney. “When you play your songs with a band it’s always fun to hit a groove and often you all want to go back and repeat those grooves. Writing songs and focussing on the dynamics of that packet of sound and melody, you don’t get carried away like that and often it’s best to just hint at things. Once.”.
Acoustic guitars, drums, bass, harmonica (by Matt Walker), vocals and vibes.
Descending chords and a wide open sound.
The lyric? Cruel and distracted- or maybe a natural reaction from a modern citizens to the daily viewing of tragedy and horror in the world- the singer is asking the listener to FEEL for him. What is it? Compassion fatigue? Crying it forward? You do it!


Be Sad For Me!
I’m outsourcing my tears
cryin’ it forward
Here’s a minor chord
strum it!
they will come
tears of a stadium
tears for streaming
here- have some of mine
help yourself!
you can cry for me
I’m all choked up
but I don’t have much time
Be sad For Me
I’ll owe you big time
Be Sad For Me!
I’m outsourcing my tears
