Cello Chasing

I’ve been busy.

My cello has had a mind of it’s own lately & I’ve had to spend some time acquiring superpowers to keep up with it. However, these efforts have begun to bear fruit, and I am very willing to share it’s sticky goodness with all of you.

I am still working on my solo album, and I’m also playing in a band.
All of that deserves it’s own entry, very soon.
In the meantime, there is this:

Last month I played a show in Portland as part of Stumptown Comics Fest.
I shared the stage with Dame Darcy & Myrrh Larsen, respectively.

& so, here is some video from said show, of a newish song called Show & Tell.

Show & Tell from Star St.Germain on Vimeo.

Loose lips sink ships
but I’m navel deep
& I’ve had way more
than my fair 3 sheets

& oh god I’m gushing
& I think I’m blushing even in my sleep
these day I can’t rely
on counting sheep

despite the weather this week
i’m on a hell of a streak
& I’m feeling so bleak
despite the company I keep

if this is show & tell
& I know you so well
but not as such
(I know this much)

if I could see your face
in that moment of grace
my body stops to brace
& see you flush

except you aren’t here
just buzzing in my ear
& I’m all fantasies & fear
& I should hush

cause I’m spilling my guts
between the clicks & cuts
with all my ampersands & ifs
or is it whats?

this is show & tell
& I know you so well
but not as such
(I know this much)

I think It’s fair to say
that I’m losing ground
Is this all sinking in?
am I just making sound?

but try as I might
rehearsed I’m trying to recite
all poise & painfully polite
I’m fret & fuss

i’m good at holding my breath
& scaring myself to death
& giving compliments by accident
& pretending I’m quite content

if this is touch & go
should we just say hello
because it’s all for show
this much I know

loose lips sink ships
but I’m navel deep
& I’ve had way more
than my fair 3 sheets

    the part of me that is in love with fancy wordings of old phrases is so turned on right now.
    I got a little chill.

    LD! Heavy stuff! A goosebump-raising performance; I speak from experience. Very well done from lyrics to performace, and I like your pre-roll, too.

    Much love and hugs to you, sweetness.
