about

sovroncourt Ohio

sovroncourt is cameron sharp (and periodically a small cast of friends). There is vitality and a sense of honesty in his imperfections and character. sovroncourt plays a peculiar brand of folk, with a voice that might rub you the wrong way at first, but with time, will feel like the softened grooves of a well loved record. ... more

Track Name: el condor pasa (if i could)
i'd rather be a sparrow than a snail
yes i would if i could you know i would
i'd rather be a hammer than a nail
yes i would if i could i surely would

away
i'd rather sail away
like a swan that's here and gone
a man
gets tied up to the ground
he gives this world it's saddest sound
it's saddest sound

i'd rather be a forest than a street
yes i would
i'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet
Track Name: mouth of the ocean
i would remember to stop in the office to say hello
i would remember to wear my re-entry badge
and swim
and fear the ocean

i was always more interested in what you were reading
i would sit and watch you as you would read
i would give you your straw hat from the basket to give you shade
while you would read

i would build towers and spires out of wet sand
and sit by your chair and dig around

we didn't speak
not because we were told not to speak
not because it was awkward
not because we didn't have anything to say
but we didn't have to

the ocean did the speaking
we just listened and watched the mouth of the ocean

this is why i'm burrying your hat
right here where i've dug up these memories
this is why i'm leaving you with the mouth of the ocean
this is where i'll sit right here in the sand and listen

i know i don't always speak like i miss you
but as sure as this song exists i promise i do
Track Name: san bernadino
we came in last night
we held each other tight
cause it was cold

we stayed up all night
we decided that we
didn't mind growing old

we talked about tomorrow
and babies' names
we moved right on past that though
for fear showing mold

we lived in a wigwam
we bought and watched fireworks
we made love that night
i tell you it was gold

san bernadino
ho
san bernadino
home
Track Name: zaleski state forest
we drove all night
talked about the President
how hard that job must be

then you turned
you looked straight at me
then you turned
you said you believed in me

so now you cannot die
not while i'm alive
now you cannot die
'cause i need you by my side
yes i need you by my side
Track Name: swimming the dam
i don't mean to be so ambiguous so often so i won't for now
i just caught myself thinking how crazy we weren't better friends before
how we're not better friends no
when i heard 'i feel the rain' by the Red House Painters described your summer before all the mirrors fell
and the windows went silent if only for one single moment
all other moments changed

when i swam the dam with john and you on that dark dark night i was nervous but you said you had done it many times before
remember john was going through a crazy time
you took him to the dam and me and we swam

in time our pace became secondary our motions automated
and we slowed down

and we swam on our backs
and we owned the water
and we owned the dark dark night
and at that moment i swear we were free
from the land
free from our troubles
we didn't look at each other
just up
and we spoke of not much at all
alive in agreement of not much at all

no one else was there

when we got back i told people we swam the dam but i don't think it meant much when i told them
but knew better and i like to believe john and you knew better with me

well i've been thinking and i've been swimming the dam
yeah i've been thinking and i've been swimming the dam

i've been thinking about you and i hope that you're alright
Track Name: someone else's life
i will not live someone else's life
even if my life is not the one you see as right
and i will no live someone else's life
even if my life is not the prettiest of sights

and i may be poor and my teeth may ache
but they will ache with a smile on my face
and my friends will be there and the feeling all around
will be like holding a one-way ticket to your favorite town

i will not live someone else's life
even if my life is not the one you see as right
and i will no live someone else's life
even if my life is not the prettiest of sights

and i will fall down and i will get back up
and i will appreciate both views when i look at the cup
and i've met my lover there and the moment it did glow
like singing a love song back to your stereo
