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: the wind and the weather
you said no i don't feel a thing
when he asked does that saline drip feel cold?
you said i'm a mom of three boys
and this is no way to go
with a smirk on your face i'm not ready to go

you said i swore they must be wrong
when they came in and they told me what was wrong
but listen to me now ... statistics they're just like the rules
and there's not one I know
that hasn't been broken
so i don't believe in two years
what i believe in
is you

so don't believe in two years
what we need to believe in
is you

lord can you hear me
i got something to say
lord can you hear me
i believe this one goes down deeper than faith
lord can you hear me
i'm talkin to you
lord can you hear me
i believe we deserve an answer or two

you said you take a walk every night
on a beach that's inside your head
place where the water and the weather was just right
and everyone has a smile smeared across their heads
it calms you
it soothes you
on these long days in bed

well i had a dream last night
and you were in it
a place where the water and weather was just right
we were singing

well it might take your body
but i'll be goddamned if it takes you

...

well i had a dream last night
and you were in it
the wind and weather were alive
we were swimming
Track Name: mamma i have
it's been too many years now even to tell
but i know we've see each other scrape our knees
through some hell

and i have seen your courage
and i'm here to tell

that i've seen you
and i see you
and i will see you again
but right now i am just thinking of you


here's to the things we cannot change
and here's to the things that we can
grant me the wisdom to know the difference
if you can
and you're willing

cause i've seen him
and i've met
and i have some questions to ask of him
like why does he do those things that he does
when he does those things that he does best

mamma i have see your courage
mamma i have
and mamma i know you've fought harder then anyone else ever has
so let's get through this
Track Name: through this pt 1 piece of you
you could get through this
but you won't
you could have given up hope
but you don't

and when the time comes
spirit will rise up
and in rising high and strong
you will be alright

you will be alright

and you say you know you're going to a better place
but you don't think this place is really that bad
and that's what makes it so hard to leave
but mamma as sure as i've got a piece of you inside
you will be alright

you will be alright
Track Name: through this pt 2 the horses
so i watched your breath
i respected my own breath
when i watched you breathe
i respected my own strength

and i heard you say
well i trust they'll safely get their horses in each night

and mamma... we will be alright

so i respected life
cause i know none of us are gonna get out of this one alive
and the biggest part of life
for you it is here

and i trust they'll safely get their horses in each night
i heard you say

but mamma we will be alright
Track Name: wooden bench
there's one thing that i've learned
is that life is only as hard as you're wanting to make it
every time you smile
and every time you complain you are breaking it

well you have sat by me
every time i built it up
and every time i've destroyed it

so i will sit with you until the end
but i'll have to borrow your courage so i don't flinch

well there's a pile of empty moving boxes at my feet
and they remind me of everything you believe in
but you keep believing

and that's what kept you going until today
even though you knew you were going away
but me, i hated it this way

so i will sit with you until the end
but i'll have to borrow your courage so i don't flinch
and i will sit with you until the end
like three old friends sharing a wooden bench
like three old friends sharing a wooden bench

and i have a couple questions to ask of god
but first i think i'd like to punch him in the eyes
maybe that would help out his site
cause there's no way he can see and still allow this torture
well this felt like torture

and i know that it should not be this way
and i understand agony
but if it's a life lesson you want
well i'm learning it
but me, i hate it this way

i will sit with you until the end
but i'll have to summon your courage so i don't bend
i will sit with you until the end
like three old friends sharing a wooden bench

you see i finally found that photograph you made of them
the one you spoke about for years
remember you would remark on how great life would be
then you would describe that scene to me

so i will sit with you until the end
but i'll have to borrow your courage so i don't flinch
and i will sit with you until the end
like three old friends sharing a wooden bench
just like three old friends sharing a wooden bench
Track Name: gods hot sun
and i aint hittin no hammer on no head
and i aint guessin no wait on no nose
and i aint gettin no younger no
and that is the only thing
that is makin any sense

and i carried my mother down
and i stood in gods hot sun
and i sweat through my clothes
for real

and i saw reflect on
and i crossed my body felt stiff
and i said this don't make no sense
and i know i will one day rest

so i crossed my body once more
and i said here is to your rest
and i know i will one day rest
so i crossed my body once more
and i said here is to your rest
