Meeting Eddie Smith Lyrics – Damien Jurado

There’s no coming back
Even your drums will die

Meeting Eddie Smith is another sublime track from Damien Jurado’s new album Reggae Film Star, making seamless switches between haunting folk rock and a bouncy latin groove. The song reveals another color in Jurado’s rich pallet and his great ability to express himself.
lyrics
Meeting Eddie Smith
Hold your troubled jaw Your losing teeth “Let’s shoot it again”
Hear your phantom song Sinking shoes
“Let’s shoot it again”
Drink your wolf man heart Holy water
Not my UFO Plastic czar Funeral t-shirt
There’s no coming back Even your drums will die

Troubling times Bent on a dime Pushing your eyes Back to your homes
“This is the part
Where I die in the scene” Chased in the parking lot By a faceless phantom
“Let’s do a take
Where you fall from this window” “You’re blurry again”
“Step out of the frame”
This the playback Calling your friends Back when we mattered Matching the soundtrack
Roger’s Audition
Keep your hands out
Or have your eye blown wide I ain’t playing now
Test my patience
Push me too far
And see what’s troubling me
I know that
Life can be so cruel
I know
It’s a sick joke
Where the bad guys win In the end
In the ambulance Screaming down the street Is the future me
Holding my audience
For the encore
Leave them wanting more
I know that
I can be so cruel
I know
It’s a sick joke Where you never win Start over again
“Too much blood on the sidewalk” The boom in frame
