Shoes – Hot Mess Video

Standard

Another video is up from the new Shoes album Ignition. It’s for Hot Mess. Do you like cats? You’ll like this video

Hot Mess
Lyrics by Shoes

Composed by Murphy/Klebe/Murphy

——-

She’s got good motor skills
When she’s stuffed to the gills
So honey say what you will

She’s no stranger to pain
She sleeps in the rain
‘Cause she’s got nothin’ to gain

Ooh she’s a hot mess
Been tryin’ to pin her down
Such a hot mess
She’s bound to be makin’ rounds

She’s a hot mess

She does her personal best
With stains on her dress
She’s a reliable wreck

She’s been payin’ her dues
With her skanky tattoos
And her sensible shoes

CHORUS

She lets her juices flow
When she’s layin’ low
Cuz that’s how she rolls

She’s got a lopsided grin
When she don’t know where she’s been
She’s my possible kin

CHORUS

She comes across as a man
With her spray-on tan
But she don’t give a damn

She wears her hair in a bun
When she gets the job done
She takes no shit from no one

CHORUS

She’s a hot mess
Couldn’t care less
Makes a hot mess

Shoes – In On You

Standard

The first official video is up from the new Shoes album Ignition. It’s for In On You.

It was created by Linda Lester with help from John Murphy. Love the theme. I literally squeed the first time I saw it. And it’s stop motion. Oh Em Gee. 1129 frames with Photoshop.

In On You
Lyrics by Shoes

Composed by John Murphy

——-

You said you hadn’t heard this talk before
But I thought you knew
You said you couldn’t take it anymore
But I wasn’t through

The friends and all the men you used to know
Have moved on years ago
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

You didn’t think you had it left inside
What more could you do
No one really cared if you had lied
You know that now too

The trouble is the worst ain’t come down yet
There’s what you want then there’s what you get
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

You wait and see
Try to put your trust in me and leave it be

We tend to overlook the mounting cost
Of all that we wagered and what we’ve lost
It happens when you least expect it
To close in on you

Still hopin’ for the end to your sadness
It’s long overdue
So tell me what’s the meaning of all this
When things come unglued

The trouble is the worst ain’t come down yet
There’s what you want then there’s what you get
It takes you from behind
Don’t let it close in on you

You’ll finally see when you put your trust in me
But you made it harder than it had to be
