about

This deliciously dark little number is the first song of Callum Gentleman's debut EP, due for release in April 2016.

lyrics

Roll me to the bottom of Beresford Street
Hang me out to dry
Roll me to the bottom of Beresford Street
Or bury me alive

I’m in prison in the middle of Beresford Square
Chained to the bar
I’m in prison in the middle of Beresford Square
Between the bottle & this guitar

So just pour another whiskey
Maybe shoot me in the head
If I survive tonight
I’ll still wish that I was dead

I’m hanging with the hookers & the screaming queens
I don’t know what to say
So I’ll sing another song & maybe cut afew lines
I might even pray

I’m staring down the barrel of Beresford Street
Towards the church on the hill
Should I try to make my Sunday meeting?
Or drop another pill

Or Drink another whiskey
Maybe shoot me in the head
If I survive tonight
I’ll still wish that I was dead

You know that I’m not the kind of guy that can say no
So I guess this is how I go

Roll me to the bottom of Beresford Street
Hang me out to dry
I said hang me at the bottom of Beresford Street
Before I see the light of day

Why do I end up this way?
