about

The song is about a person clinging to someone who is aloof and distant and wondering why they cling to that person and their own sadness.

lyrics

You are like a bird in flight,
Disappearing in the sky.
You make love to me
But I don't know the reasons why.
You want to run away
Like a frightened ghost in the night.

Why do I cling to sadness?
Sad guitars bending strings
Follow hollow emptiness.
Sad guitars find the tears,
Why do I cling to you?

You are just a mystery,
Hiding secrets in your mind.
You cover up your scars
With the alibis you designed.
You are happy to live
Like you're dying in a tragedy.

Why do I cling to sadness?
Sad guitars bending strings
Follow hollow emptiness.
Sad guitars find the tears,
Why do I cling to you?

about

Donald & Jack Youngstown, Ohio

Sad Guitars was recorded during the summer of 2013. We work in a factory in Youngstown where the open playing of music has been banned and radios are confiscated. This is where we met and began talking about making music. Donald and Jack are characters in a story we created about a musical journey.

Eric Bartholow: Vocals, Sad Guitars, Piano, Drums
