about

"Jamie (they/them). UK born loser in NYC. I haven’t really written or sung for about sixteen years but my therapist and psychiatrist both thought I needed a hobby before I evaporated completely. I started writing poems about things that made me sad and angry. I don’t really read poetry myself but I do have a lot of feelings."

lyrics

I don’t mind when a Kennedy dies,
I don’t mind when two Kennedys die.

I’ll never own my home, I’ll never make a change.
We live to serve a class smaller than us,
But I love the birds, I love the trees
I love the flowers, I love the sea

So have a few drinks,
Make a couple friends,
Write a few words,
Sing a couple songs,
Make a some fat beats,
Rent a home,
Be alone,
Do whatever.

Sometimes doing something is better than it isn’t,
Sometimes being alive is better than it isn’t.

I don’t mind when a Kennedy dies,
I don’t mind when a Roosevelt dies.

Hey.

Did your friends in Australia like the song?
Did your mates in Croydon sing along?
My pal in Japan said it wasn’t his thing,
But he’s a sweet guy, so it’s okay.
My mum think it’s nice that I’m trying to sing,
My wife thinks it’s good that I’m not always drinking.

And I don’t know who’ll listen to this,
And I don’t know who could like this,
But if you’ve heard me for a second or two,
Then it’s cool as shit to be alive with you.
