Hey! Here’s a fun way to know you’re too tired: When that song “Bruises” comes on at work, instead of being repulsed by Train you start to tear up and think “Ohhhhh, those two should give it a try! Maybe they’ll finally find true love. There’s hope for everybody!”
I’m someone’s #mcm for the first time evah! So I guess you could say today’s going pretty well.
The homie Dallas Jones has been sharing tracks from his new album Sunday, which will be available May 1. This is my favorite share so far, a track called “Leave Behind.”
"This is the oldest song on the album, but it turned out to be one of my favorites. For me, it’s about learning to let go of things in your past that are keeping you from moving forward to new and better things. They will always be a part of you, but you’ve got to leave them behind as well."
You can find his albums The Morelock Sessions, Wherever You Roam and American Weekend on Amazon. If you’re in the #SGF, you can see him every Sunday night with Molly Healey at Springfield Brewing Company.

Him that he had a weight problem, and
She had Daddy Issues

"We all self-conscious, I’m just the first to admit it."
He knows her back window
Two rush hour-choked blocks away,
Is struck pulse surging, hummingbird-hearted
By the curves of her
License plate’s numbers and letters,
He is just another white sedan.
Left turn signal, accelerator to floor, right turn signal,
Left lovestruck lightheaded by her exhaust.
What he wouldn’t give for a fender-bender,
Ugh. You guys, seriously.
"…If there’s two things that I hate / It’s having to cook and trying to date / Busting our ass all day to play ‘hurry up and wait / That’s a few things that I hate / If I call when I ain’t drunk / This old boat’ll still be sunk / ‘Cause one of my friends has taken her in and given her codeine…"
