omg! i just love this song. it's maybe somehow creepy...but i love ut :)
Hey Josh, I think you're a very talented musician/song writer and truly striving to express your genre of music to others. I however, am wondering what is it that pushes the lyrics you put on paper from within? As a fellow musician and song writer I find myself often being swayed by the overwhelming desire to deliver upbeat melodies with a constant positive message of hope, love, faith and a detachment from all the worldly things that clutter the minds of so many these days. Just wondering if you're spiritual to a point of releasing that into your music? I actually came across your music from facebook and have only listened to a few songs of yours. But I will say, that I truly believe that you're walking on the edge of a spiritual side of yourself, but maybe I'm way off base and if so, I'm sorry. I just think you have a lot to offer through your music and unique sound. Hope I didn't come off the wrong way or anything negative. Keep doing what you seem to truly love. Remember, that music surely moves the souls of the most hardened of clay hearts.
hey there, and man I really love this song. just the whole story, the distant kind of feeling you get, like youre listening to your grandpa telling you about his life
and now that i watched the vid and googled peoria, i finally get it b/c i didn't know what that word was in the song before. and again, EXCELLENT SONG!
P.S. this is WhiteBrightLightning from YouTube
P.S.S. thanks for makin this site, really loving it!
Sorry for my bad english, i'm from germany and don't speak it very good... ;) I've found your great songs on jamendo.com, I enjoyed your music since the first time I heard it. It's very easy to understand your music without a dictionary! What I still like is that you can (compared to many modern pop singers) sing live without editing your voice on PC ;) I hope your work is very succesfulness and you still publish your music under creative common rights!
Good Luck and many greeces from Germany
:) i will take the time and spend time making a Minecraft Animated Music Video for this song! it'll be uploaded on SCMowns. you'll soon see josh!
Awesome, can't wait to see it!
Behind every song a songwriter must have a story. Always wondered what's the story behind this one.
Is it all just fantasy ?
I'm not entirely sure, actually! I keep a file of song ideas I've come up with over the years, which has random things like possible titles, themes, lyric snippets, character names, etc. One of the character names I had in there was "Billy Barnum", which sounded like an old-timey name, so I think the story just started coming together from that.
I still find this the most beautiful song you've ever written. I think it's because, although very dramaticly put here in this song, it embeds a feeling we all experienced somewhere in our life : a moment where we have done something very wrong (our at least we considered that way ourselfs) and kept it a secret only ours to know.
