Sadcore Sundays: “What’s In it For?” by Avi Buffalo

I just saw Avi Buffalo at Echo Park Rising 2017 and he blew me awayyyyyy!! I had listened to his music when I was in high school but it was a totally different experience seeing him shred on guitar with crazy guitar pedal transitions in-between songs…by himself. I love seeing artists perform solo, it’s so much more intimate and I feel like I can see their raw soul in that moment. I felt really sick before I went to see him, but felt so comforted in his show. Hope this helps you too xoxox.

Lyrics to “What’s In if For?” by Avi Buffalo

I walked in on a plan to dissolve all of your wishes
But I couldn’t help your mouth which I missed by two inches
Maybe I thought you and I could run away along side
But I didn’t understand I was a cold tear in your eye

What’s in it for someone with nothing to do
What’s in it for me
What’s in it for someone with nothing to do
What’s in it for me

I can read but I won’t if I’m sleeping here without you
And all these things that you learn I’ve been knowing since my childhood
You are tiny and your lips are like little pieces of bacon
I can feel you’re on fire because you’re drunk and I seem too cool

You know I love it when you put your fingertips around my shoulder
Should I take you to more functions or would you rather be lonely
I feel like I’m messing up too much and I forget where I am
You are so much wiser and I’m used to stretching things out so long
