about

Cannonball is a dirty cigar box, harmonica, violin, whamola, blues, beat-stomper that tells the story of a love you just can't kick, but you're not sure you even want to. You kind of know you should, and so you try to leave them, but you can't cause its too good, and then you're just like ah screw it lets go catch a movie.

lyrics

Lost out of my mind as you whisper
Laid down to me
Hold on as I start the breakdown
Woo hoo

Said nice to meet you let us stay
Laid down to me
Another part of my madness breakdown
Woo hoo

You’ve got me face down until the moon will rise
You’ve got me face down
You’ve got me right down until our cells divide
You hit me deep down like a cannonball

I asked what would you do if I left you
And you said to me
Animals will always return home
Woo hoo

And when the sun it has faded slowly
You said to me
Our spirits rising we say our farewell
Woo hoo

You’ve got me laid down until the moon will rise
You’ve got me laid down
You’ve got me right down until our cells divide
You hit me deep down like a cannonball
