about

An old tune first recorded back in 2005. We played it live so much it would've been a shame not to record it for posterity so here it is.

lyrics

Oh there's a mother and daughter who'll take you town
You place an ad in the paper when you want to get down
And it's a cold, dark night in Shreveport and
we've got no other place to go
But now's the time to change your mind,
you cannot leave once you get through the door
Oh I'll keep that a secret just promise me you'll do the same

There's shell of a building on Common and Line
You knock twice on the doorjam and ask the man for the time
You see this man he's a salesman, he's got the trick up his sleeve
and for a hundred an hour he gonna make you believe
That you're the king of your castle, the ruler of all,
but what he won't tell you
You've got a long, long way to fall

It's a cold, dark night in Shreveport and we've got no other place to go
But now's the time to change your mind,
you cannot leave once you get the through the door
Oh I'll keep that a secret just promise me you'll do the same.

Dark, dreamy, soulful rock-and-roll, spearheaded by Louisiana born, Chicago-resident Justin Jahnke, Midnight On Pearl Beach is Justin's take on psychedelic rock, trippy folk, and poppy rhythm and blues.
