My sister in law works for an undisclosed promotion company... she sent me the single a month ago. I did not like it at first, but it has grown on me.

I just heard it for the first time, too. I grows on you. Will add it to the list of road music.

Thanks...

Had a time running down where the download actually was.

Gomez on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads

In my search, ran across the lyrics. Helps when you are listening through laptop speakers...

All the angels on the wire
Getting dizzy from the heights
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

She shoots but never misses
Stare down, passin traffic
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

I would return the favour
Oversleep the rapture
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

Your watermelon candy mouth
The penthouse at the sands
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

As much as I love Johnny Cash, I do prefer the songwriter's rendition:

YouTube - Leonard Cohen - Bird on a wire

I am continually amazed at Johnny's pure artistic talent.
Every time I hear his version of Hurt I am moved.
Thank you reday.
Keep on wandering.

Well sense this became a Johnny Cash thread suddenly, I thought I might throw my pick in. You see, I don't really care for those slow sad songs. I prefer something to make the toe tap, a little rock a billy, a little sinner music. I was sent this a few weeks ago and embedded it on my blog.
