• Favourite Hawksley Workman Lyrics (simple title, extraordinary talents within)

    Continuing the theme of me writing a journal entry whenever I have studying to do, I have a calculus final exam worth 50% of my grade tomorrow. But, instead, I'm going to compile my favourite Hawksley Workman lyrics. This may bleed over into other artists, but just know that it started out as only words written by this artist:

    - What loving can't fix tonight, the whiskey certainly might. I must have whispered your name 65 times ~ Even An Ugly Man

    - I wish the telephone had not been invented 'cause I keep picking it up to say stupid things to you ~ Wonderful and Sad

    - Wish that happiness could just be pretended. The closest thing to that is a bottle of whiskey, dear ~ Wonderful And Sad

    - You slept through the last small town. I'll wake you up when the next one comes around. Your eyes are closed, like you truly believe you're safe and sound with me ~ Safe and Sound

    - Who'll give you time to cry and time to find yourself ~ Smoke Baby

    Sat 29 Mar – Hawksley Workman

    My background with Hawksley goes like this:
    I have this cousin (whom we will refer to only as M.) who is a major supremo volunteer at the Winnipeg Folk Festival and has been for the last 11 years. She is a real music lover/appreciator (like myself), and volunteers at the festival only because she truly loves music. So last year, at my birthday, M and her brother (who will be known as I.) informed me that they were giving me a ticket to a Hawksley Workman concert as their gift. I was excited...well, actually, I tried to be polite and appear excited, but in fact I had never heard anything from him except the song "jealous of your cigarette" that was played on Much Music a few times. And its not that I didn't like the song, I just didn't like the chorus. Sooo, going from that knowledge only, I was a little unsure of what I was getting myself into when they picked me up at my apartment to go to the concert that night.
