>An Unsuspecting Smile

>It’s been almost two years since the release of “Brother, Sister”, but I’m amazed with Aaron Weiss’ lyrics. (cf. “I’m still Waiting To Meet a Girl like my Mom who’s closer to my age”)

Take for instance the song “in a Sweater Poorly Knit”:

“You’re a door-without-a-key, a field-without-a-fence.
You made a holy fool of me and I’ve thanked you ever since.
if she comes circling back we’ll end where we’d begun
like two pennies on the train track the train crushed into one

or if I’m a crown without a king, if I’m a broken open seed
If I come without a thing, then I come with all I need”

Gosh I wish I had written that.
