A Name Like Tobleron

This song is not in a battle

It's "A Name Like Toblerone" it just wouldn't fit it all in.

I wrote aobut this woman down our hill who is like 30, but looks about 70. Sad sad story. So I wrote this song. Which probably has nothing to do with her, but was inspired by her.


Severed fingernails beneath the teeth she bites them with,
A silver bangle dangling from her wrist.
Knuckles white and hard from years of smoking cigarettes,
She doesn't have that long (I think you get the gist)

She's a sinker,
On a fishing wire.


She's this crooked little easel of a girl,
Clumps of hair they tear and fall about the place.
And when she smiles (which isn't often, and it takes a while)
It's like her lips against the grain of her face.

She's a sinker,
And she's cast away.


She has a name because her mother called her Toblerone,
She has a dog which she just calls Dog.
And when it yelps it coughs and splutters through the living room,
And wades its way into the niccotene fog.

She's a sinker,
She's a sinker,
She's a sinker,

And she's sinking down,

A very simple song, lovely melody and lyrics and tasteful guitar playing. Nicely done.

Incredible song EG - you're really talented!

I love the sound of the guitar and your voice - is it recorded live? It's just that sometimes it sounds like you turn your mouth a little away from the mic, maybe to look down on the chords?!? - don't know if it's so, just a thought.

I also really dig your lyrics - you really master the technique of "Don't tell it - show it" - you use the melody like a canvas a portraits this woman to the listener - and very effectively - I'm impressed.

Would really love to hear it produced with more instruments... hope you have a some guys around you, so you can play your songs with a backing band.... Then all you need is a live audience and you're reaching for the stars...

I'm getting chills that reminds me of early John Mayer...
