about

SpaceBandito! Detroit, Michigan

I'm just a guy who has a really small ukulele. I plan to put up some of my own stuff along with some covers. I'm just doing this for fun, not for a living, and if you appreciate what I upload here that's all I want.

Track Name: The Cello Song
You told me it was love at first sight
When our eyes met across the crowd
But even then I knew something wasn't right
Woodwinds, they just never left me wowed

Oh, I love you more than you will ever know
But I'd leave you in a second
If I ever met a girl who plays the cello

We travelled the world and made it ours
Checked off each wonder one by one
But Bach was playing over Holland's fields of flowers
So see you later baby, it's been fun

There's no place for you that I'd refuse to go
But I'd leave you in a second
If I ever met a girl who plays the cello

Baby I know that this estrangement
Has not been easy on you
But I'm just a man who loves a good string arrangement
And that flute of yours just won't do

I know it's so hard to let go
But I found somebody new
And she absolutely shreds on the cello
Track Name: Manic Pixie Dream Girl
Paper girl, you live in two dimensions
You're my paper girl, I don't need depth perception
To see my paper girl. She folds up so easy into my pocket


She changed my life, showing me a world I never knew
And I could not believe that I'd been so untrue
To myself and paper girl you showed me the way

Oh, paper girl on the surface you seem wacky and so strange
You like french fries dipped in frostee and Dave Mustaine
But beneath that is nothing, you're just surface

You never got a life from the writers it's sad to see
No hopes or dreams outside of helping me
You could have been so much more than just a plot device

Paper girl, you live in two dimensions
You're my paper girl, I don't need depth perception
To see my paper girl. She crumples up so easy, thrown away
Track Name: Devil in Detroit
Blood-red moon on the snow
Melts as the winds of Hell blow
I shiver in the heat, I can feel my heart beat
Deep down inside me I know

The Devil's coming for me tonight
He is stalking the streets of Detroit
I wrote him a check, now he's come to collect
Yes, the Devil's coming for me tonight

I hear the sound of cloven feet
It follows me down every street
In my favorite bars and from passing cars
Emanations of brimstone and heat

Yes, the Devil's coming for me tonight
He is stalking the streets of Detroit
Sent his rejects after me, now Sid Haig is all I see
'Cause the Devil's coming for me tonight

Each year the people think they drive him out
I doubt we have that kind of clout
Le Nain Rouge est toujours la, il ne nous remarque pas
And it don't matter how loud we shout

Oh, the Devil's coming for me tonight
He is stalking the streets of Detroit
He's the rust that comes with rain, now he's gonna bring the pain
Yes, the Devil's coming for me tonight

He's chosen for me a special doom:
The incinerator's deepest room
He likes to hear it howl when he's on the prowl
And to him it smells as sweet as perfume

Oh, the Devil's coming for me tonight
He is stalking the streets of Detroit
Thought that I could get away, seems like Hell is where I'll stay
'Cause the Devil's coming for me tonight
Track Name: Untitled/Love Song
Sitting on the fire escape I watch
The city as it moves through the night
And I'm dreading the first glimpse of morning's light
Cause I know that at its sight
You'll wake up from where you lay
You made it clear that you had no intention to stay
But now that I've got you home I can't bear to see you walk away

Though you're lying next to me I'm just
Watching a spider cross the ceiling
As it weaves its web I wonder how soon you'll be leaving
Sound like a mourner with my grieving
As though you're already dead
Instead of sleeping quiet and bare-skinned in my bed
And my stomach turns over the lies that we have said

In my dreams I hear you
Ask me please not to kiss you
You say your freedom is so long overdue
And you know that even a few
Seconds would be too much to take
you've shed so many tears you're drowning in a lake
But I move in close and make the worst choice I could choose to make

I can't sleep at all because
I'm so scared of the dark
I left my heart behind as you walked me through the park
You leaving me was just the spark
And you watched all your bridges burn
You ran away so much it's time you finally learn:
You can't win my trust, no, that's a thing you have to earn
Track Name: Flagstaff (Old Version)
Drawn like a moth to a flame
Don't think you noticed all the pain when it came
But oh, it came
Saw you standing by the light of the bridge

Even Frankenstein never had so many hearts
At least he did something with the parts
You kept 'em hid
Lining shelves inside your little chest
I saw mine up there with all the rest

Grabbed my arm on Valentine's Day
The coward in me ran away
Heart on your sleeve
But I knew it was too good to be true

I hoped when you left that out of sight
Was out of mind, but I sure wasn't right
Thought I'd be strong
But your eyes wrapped round me like a chain
Dragged me under once again

I still see you dancing in that green dress
I was scared on the sidelines I confess
Now you're gone
But I still think of you in the by and by
And wish that Flagstaff and Detroit were side-by-side
