Written in February, 2010. Over the past few years, we've done hundreds of gigs in hundreds of rooms just like this. If you've ever been to one of our shows, you should see yourself in this song. - J


The curtain goes up, on this old wooden stage
We're all here tonight, and here's where we'll stay
The people they smile, as those lights flicker on
Mostly they listen, but some sing along

And just for an hour, they have the power
To forget all their troubles, On With the Show

Music it echoes, out into the night
Moon through the windows, makin' everything shine
Some wear pretty dresses, some dusty work boots
But in the end, they all leave two by two

And just for an hour, they have the power
To forget all their troubles, hey, On With the Show

An old couple dances, back behind all the seats
The woman she follows, the old man, well, he leads
Me, I keep starin' at that clock on the wall
I know it won't be long, 'till that big curtain falls

But just for an hour, yeah, I have the power
To forget all my troubles, and get On With the Show

But just for an hour, we all have the power
So let's forget all our troubles, and get On With the Show

Let's forget our troubles...

"The Potter's Field defies easy description -- Harmoniously haunting, deceptively simple, painting portraits of real life on the canvas of the listeners' hearts and minds with sepia undertones of edgy eeriness, poignant lyrics and bright splashes of toe-tapping energy." ... more
