Song Lyric Sunday Theme: a song from an artist/singer who shares your name

Drinking while sleeping
Strangers unknowingly keep me company
In the hotel bar
Looking out a window that isn’t there
Looking at the carpet and the chairs
Well the only words I said today are “beer” and “thank you”
Beer, thank you
Beer, thank you
Giving praise in a quiet way
Like a church
Like a church
Like a church that’s far away
I’ve got limitations like Marvin Gaye
Mortal joy is that way
Outside a train sings its whale song
To a long, long train long, long gone
Then silence comes back alone
High as scaffolding
‘Til the wind finds something to ping
When the pinging things finds the wind
We’re all looking for a body
Or a means to make one sing

Smiley Bill!  

Well, that’s Bill Callahan with a song called simply The Sing. It’s the opening song from his last album called Dream River from 2013. He yet another fave singer-songwriter but say that every weekend for the song I pick. It’s William Callahan or his birth name is, my name is William but anyone calls me Bill too, you know? That’s the SLS theme this weekend, your name which brought to you by Kirstwrites.

Cheers 🙂
