about

An edited version of an oldie but goodie

lyrics

Don’t ask me why I cry when the sky is blue
Don’t ask me why I lie when I speak of you
Don’t ask me why I hide when I see the morning dew
Oh what they say about those growing pains are true

I try to listen for your call
Wasting my time when it’s not there
Like the bird above that’s standing on the wire
I can’t bear looking down to see the concrete floor
I must find my nest
The sparrows want to fly away
Hoping they can find a brand new day

Don’t ask me why I run to where the sun goes down
I try to reach the star that I once found
Some people say that what you get is yours to hold
But my legs are growing tired and the story’s growing old

I try to listen for your call
Wasting my time when it’s not there
Like the bird above that’s standing on the wire
I can’t bear looking down to see the concrete floor
I must find my nest
The sparrows want to fly away
Hoping they can find a brand new day

You said you won’t forget, you said that you would call
But all I see here is my shadow on the wall
I am not remembered
The sparrows have flown away
Hoping they could find a brand new day

Scott Krokoff New York, New York

With a rich and melodic sound drawn primarily from his love of 60s and 70s music, Scott Krokoff (pron: Crow-Cough) weaves elements of folk rock & country pop into confessional and compelling Americana. He is an evocative and introspective songwriter, and a deft finger-picker in the vein of James Taylor and Paul Simon with “an edge of Replacements styled alt rock to his strum” (Hiplanta). ... more
