Are You Up? 03:42
My soul had gone a’driftin And far away it hid. And I know this thing can be so twisted This love we call it our friend. Oh are you up now? Are you sleeping? I’ve been laying here all morning. Are you up now? I’m ready, ready for this day to begin. And in that classic depiction of love and all of it’s joy There’s no room for a long haired fool in there! No room for a long haired boy. Then I found myself fighting. Fighting with the one that I need, Cause there was some kind of story here But I don’t think that it’s about me. Oh are you up now? Are you sleeping? I’ve been laying here all morning. Are you up now? I’m ready, ready for this day to begin. And I had it written up inside a theory That I’d never feel this way again. We were young and it was ok To spread our ashes on the windowpane. You’re love, it brightens me up. Wonder how long it’s gonna be this way. Oh are you up now? Are you sleeping? I’ve been laying here all morning. Are you up now? I’m ready, ready for this day to begin. Oh are you up now? Are you sleeping? I’ve been laying here all morning. Are you up now? I’m ready, ready for this day to begin. Etc.

The people in this city call me country Because of how I walk and talk and smile Well, I don't mind them laughing in the city But the country folks all say I'm citified The fighting men they say that I'm a coward Because I never push no one around Gentle people call me trouble maker 'Cause I'll always fight and stand my ground Funny I don't fit Where have all the average people gone? Some pious people point and call me sinner Because to them I've never seen the lights Other folks think of me as a preacher I'm just doing what I think is right The wealthy people think that I am a hobo Lean and hungry, writing mournful songs And the poor, poor people think I am a rich man But really, I'm just trying to get along Yes, it's funny I don't fit Tell me where have all the average people gone? And the government has given me a number To simplify my birth and life and death And still my woman thinks I'm awful important Like the moon and the sun and the sea and the sky and breath Yes, it's funny I don't fit Where have all the average people gone? Funny I don't fit Where have all the average people gone?

I walked alone through the days and all the hours. I can’t count them anymore. I sat at home and I watched through the tv screen as the lovers had their fill. I pondered on and thought of all the things that I had shared with me. And every glass of wine should come with a friend. And tell me what’s the end if there’s nobody to share it with. Nobody there to be scared of it with you? Shake your finger like the heretic. Never one to waste your time on getting along! I know when the curtains call I’ll have someone to hold on to! (The puff of smoke that shows right before you go) And so it goes, the stubborn kind has a harder time finding anyone. But my misery has so many things she’d like to share with me. And every glass of wine should come with a friend. Someone should see it when you go. Tell me what’s the end if there’s nobody to share it with. Nobody there to be scared of it with you? Shake your finger like the heretic. Never one to waste your time on getting along! And I know, as the curtains call, I’ll have someone to hold on to! (The puff of smoke that shows right before you go) (The puff of smoke that shows you where to go)

No that we’re here at the end. I can’t believe it. We really did it this time. Now that we’re staring at our feet in our hands, We’re babies, babies again. And ain’t that how it feels when you’re lonely? After being loverly for so many years.. And it feels like I’ve had seven kinds of living lives. All of them quite beautiful, but pardon me I can’t recall your birthday Or you favorite kinds of colors here. In the fall as the leaves are falling, Here I am, trouble recalling those things. You know what it really is? I can’t go around a single corner. I can’t hit the grocery without her spirit followin me. And if it’s not my pocket that’s a’ringin It’s ringin in my head from ear to ear. She’s right there in my head. All you ghosts and all you poets, You wouldn’t even understand. She’s right there everywhere I go. In my pocket, on the road. Now that we are at the end of something. I can’t believe it, we really did it this time baby. And in my head there’s only the past and where I’ve been, memories of your skin, Or at least what I can recall. And now that this whole thing has come upended Those days pretending that it could not be Seem like such trivial things in such a beautiful story. Seems like the only thing that don’t come running out Is that I wish that I’d done anything differently. Anything. Ahhhhhh.

about

With Okey Dokey’s latest, multi-band, collaborative album “Once Upon One Time” having just been released in October, the band is back with a refreshing pallet cleansing EP entitled Leaky Sealing. The songs are a collection of b-sides, covers, and new interpretations of some of the band’s favorite songs from the album. The lead single is “Delicious” remixed by the indie pop group Generationals. “With the ‘Leaky Sealing’ alternate spelling I was hoping to draw attention to all the leaks. The ones above our heads and the ones above our souls. We live in a world we barely know.”, explains frontman Aaron Martin.
