Steel & Rubber

from by Levi Strom



Live studio recording of this one. Trev dog really upped the tempo on drums ala Tom Petty and allowed my whimsical lyrics a chance to spread into your head like a virus.


(Verse 1)
I don't know if I should sing this song.
I'd like to give it back where it comes from.
I wake up in the morning and I smoke my sticky bun.
And learn to live and learn to lie alone.

When I think about you I just wanna die.
Stick a needle in my arm and just turn out the lights.
I'm winding down the highway drunk,
smokin' just to leave my mind.
This is how I like to toe the line.

It takes WORK! WORK! WORK!
To make a lover, of a man made of steel & rubber.
Inside my belly, I remember how she wore her hair.


(Verse 2)
Well it's been real it's been a real good time.
But now we've got to move a little further down the line.
Where there's another party waiting for us tonight.
And another body to keep me warm inside.
Ready, here we go.

(Repeat Chorus)

(Verse 3)
Well I don't mind if we sing this song all night.
Well I like the words and the musics tight.
There's no telling where we'll end up tonight.
I feel something welling up inside.
Alright last time.

(Repeat Chorus)
Yes I remember how she wore her hair.

It’s also the title of his new record due out this summer on Vow Records. A mash of driving acoustic guitar, lush back up harmonies, and Levi's slightly off-key, heartfelt vocals make "Surf Country" a must download for summer 2013. ... more
