about

Matt York Boston, Massachusetts

Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald says, "You have to have smarts and heart to turn the same three chords Buddy Holly used into something fresh. On Matt York’s “Boston, Texas,” the singer-songwriter uses basic building blocks — Holly’s chords, Hank Williams’ swagger, Steve Earle’s boozy wisdom, Paul Westerberg’s straight-up-drunk wisdom — to construct an album of beauty, optimism and heartbreak". ... more

Track Name: On My Own
The gang's all here.
First time in years and it's been fun.
But I'm cheerless
and I'm obsessed with what may come
I succumb.

I'm on my own.
I got some money in my pocket but
I feel alone. I'm by myself and
I've got no where to go

Two balloons, fractured love that has become no fun
The names have changed,
The pain's the same and I am done, all done.

I'm on my own. I've got my phone but I've got no one to call
I feel alone, I'm by myself and I've got nowhere to go.
Track Name: Hot Shot
Hey hot shot I'm in need of a reprieve
Hey hot shot I've got something up my sleeve
I don't care about no needle or no needle done
I don't really care about no one.

It seems to me, lately I've been running out of dreams

Hey hot shot I was good until the end
Now I'm out here just trying to find myself a friend
For those of you out there that think you're sunk
I'm out here saying a prayer for all you punks

It seems to me, lately I've been running out of dreams
It seems to me, lately I've been running out of steam
I'm running out of road

Lately it's been complicated, all the colors have all faded since you're gone, yeah since you're gone.

I've turned on just about everyone but taking you ain't half the fun that it used to be, oh can't you see.

Hey hot shot, I just need to be at ease
I'm out here begging please end this disease
I gave it all to you and now it's through
I gave it all and I'm just trying to pull through

It seems to me, lately I've been running out of dreams
It seems to me, lately I've been running out of steam
I'm running out of road
