Mary 04:19
I've got a place down by the shore I've got a bottle of wine and no glasses for it I've got a sore heart I've got a bad head Since you stopped laying next to me Mary Walkin' around, taking up Space on the sidewalk Lookin' for somebody to throw me a line Since I lost my Mary, I'm Just lookin' for a little company I've got a trunk with all of my things in it I've got a bed on the floor at my best friend's I've got a cold heart I've got a bad head Since you stopped waking up with me Mary Walkin' around, taking up Space on the sidewalk Lookin' for somebody to throw me a line Since I lost my Mary, I'm Just lookin' for a little company

You fall asleep on your own again I stay up half of the night I've lost a piece from inside of me The joy that keeps me alight I feel its hole in my side Why is loving you so hard? Why is loving you so hard? This should be the easy part Each day comes then it's gone again I don't ever go out Sit on the couch in a worn out shirt Watching reruns for hours With all my things in your house I try to keep it all working Words turn to ash in my mouth A sadness is overcoming me This fire we started is flickering out Why is loving you so hard? Why is loving you so hard? This should be the easy part

I wake up in my house Alone in my bed Six am is screaming Back to this again I do it with my eyes closed Wear marks in the cement How the hell am I supposed To wash you from my head Melbourne Rain Fall on me again Around my feet Stuck on your doorstep Hallway light Trace your silhouette Melbourne Rain Fall on me again I take a breath and step in Get blown through the city Everyone keeps asking me For twenty cents of pity All that I am asking Is baby please think of me Yesterday was blue skies and bicycles And I miss you already Melbourne Rain Fall on me again Around my feet Stuck on your doorstep Hallway light Trace your silhouette Melbourne Rain Fall on me again Melbourne Rain Fall on me again Around my feet Stuck on your doorstep Hallway light Trace your silhouette Melbourne Rain Fall on me again

Give me a pill That alters my mind Paint over memories Of things left behind Cause I don't want them around here no more Give me a smoke And I'll smoke you right out of that room in my head Where you told me to stand and wait Where you held my hand Where you said I know you do Where you said Because Where you said I'll see you again, When you hear them singing La la la Then you walked out the door So give me a drink Just one more drink Something to keep me warm Something to wash the last cells from my brain That whisper your name in the cold Something to wash down that last drop of rain That I caught on my tongue, you were laughing There at the end I could hear them singing La la la Then you walked out the door

about

Recorded live in a makeshift temporary studio in Paris, with my buddy Brice Chandler, a little acoustic session of some old songs of mine. Hope you enjoy them.

about

Steve Wallis Paris, France

Steve Wallis writes honest, clear eyed folk songs, driven by his shrewd fingerstyle guitar, and his wry gift for finding joy in the melancholy. His songs are old letters from ex lovers, regrets folded into fond souvenirs, that final glance back before rushing onwards.

In 2018, Steve's song 'Melbourne Rain' reached new success after it was featured in PS4 game Detroit: Become Human.
