about

Shiny and the Spoon Cincinnati, Ohio

Called “Perhaps the best folk duo our region has to offer” (The Historic Southgate House), Shiny and the Spoon give off the warmth and intimacy of the likes of Johnny Cash and June Carter, with transcendent vocals and a vibrant acoustic core, complimented by sprinklings of ukulele, guitar, harmonica, and boot-stomping. ... more

Track Name: Someday Love
A little ring and a lot of doubt around a finger, calling out. And it’s something to think about: that I guess you’ll have to do with me…guess you’ll have to do with me…guess you’ll have to do with me. Had a reason the other day, or a feeling, anyway. You want something that’s going to stay. Wonder what you think we’re doing here… what you think we’re doing here…what you think we’re doing here? And it never stops. It never stops to let you off. And the world goes by while you decide what’s good enough. And you’re taking time. You’re taking mine right from my cup. Every year buzzes around my ear. You’re still calling it a “someday love.” Now you’re looking watered-down, like feeling for the ground. Say it’s something you haven’t found. So I guess you’ll have to leave me here…guess you’ll
have to leave me here…guess you’ll have to leave me here. And it never stops. It never stops to let you off. And the world goes by while you decide what’s good enough. And you’re taking time. You’re taking mine right from my cup. Every year buzzes around my ear. You’re still calling it a “someday love.”
Track Name: Needle
Morning came, and everything was clear, and all of yesterday found its way to my door. I don’t know what all was said, but daylight came upon my bed and found me crying on the bedroom floor. Hey, hey, hey, it’s your love I’ll never trade. Farmers till the weeds away, and shotguns keep the deer at bay. You work hard to keep me true. I’ve been itching in my skin since you walked out and he walked in, like a thunderstorm blowing through. Hey, hey, hey, it’s your love I’ll never trade. And it’s more
than I can take to see your heart break. It’s like a needle in the hay-it’ll work its way up someday. Down and out, and out of town, and I still feel you hanging around. Honey, my heart is black and blue. You know me, I’m a mess, and I know you, you’re not impressed, but I’m…I’m coming back to you. Hey, hey, hey, it’s your love I’ll never trade. Hey, hey, hey, it’s your love I’ll never trade. It’s your love I’ll never trade. It’s your love I’ll never trade.
Track Name: Box Of Bullets
The radio was playing songs of summer while you were planning out your great escape. Just waiting on the world to make an offer and counting out your bullets, just in case. But you keep moving faster, start shooting at the sound of someone’s footsteps at your door. I don’t know what you’re after, but someday you’ll have to tell me who you keep those bullets for. You keep moving faster, start shooting at the sound of someone’s footsteps at your door. I don’t know what you’re after, but someday you’ll have to tell me who you keep those bullets
for.
Track Name: I Don't Like It
Amid a host of old attacks, you tell me that I’m half the criminal, how you hope I’ll just relax and take a cue from what you’re chewing on. But I don’t like it. It’s a set up: ring toss, wrong cup. And if you’re done
listing your facts, making treaties on the telephone, I’ve got some questions for the ax and the tree that you keeping hammering on. I don’t like it. I don’t buy it. Just keep it, because I don’t like it. So when you’re calling down to Earth with every bullet in your arsenal, keep your crosses, keep your dirt, for a piece of something credible. I don’t like it. I don’t buy it. Just keep it. Yeah, I don’t like it. Yeah, just keep it, because I don’t like it.
Track Name: Pieces
The pieces that you left, I kept around and I slept around the part that held your shape along my bed. They all say, “no regret,” so I came
around and oh, honey, now the rain don’t cloud about my head. And it’s so slow to heal. And it’s so slow to heal. The pieces that you left don’t come around here. Now dreams don’t bear a case to bother me. They say, “you make your bed,” but I’m sleeping now to dream. I’ll make a case to mourn the walking dead. And it’s so slow to heal. And it’s so
slow to heal. And it’s so slow to heal. And it’s so slow to heal. And it’s so slow to heal. And it’s so, so slow to heal…to heal…to heal.
Track Name: December
Papa, I know when December winds blow, you’re fixing to leave me alone. I’ll sit and write you a book every night while you sleep in a temperate zone. And it’s clear that I’ve only half-grown. I recall scenery:
creek bed and willow tree, anchored in shag carbon floor. When we were able to sit around the table, trouble held fast at our door. Trouble held fast at our door. Papa, I know when December winds blow, you’re drinking the sweet winter down. I’ll sit and stare with my nose in the air for to fix you from going back down. And it’s clear that it settled somehow. I recall scenery: creek bed and willow tree, pictures of dancing ballet. When we were able to sit around the table, trouble had nothing to say. Trouble had nothing to say. Trouble had nothing to say. Trouble had nothing to say.
Track Name: Gram & Heloise
Don’t you load that pistol in your hand. Don’t you know what you show in taking stands? Beneath the coat that you wear (show your friends), there’s a hole there, a hole there. Lord, I wonder if this is how it looks:
lonely lovers, a bag of open books. You play Heloise. Me, I’ll take Gram. Yeah, it’s hardly an ever after. And it’s sweet talk the morning after because you only feel good around her. Say you’re sorry if you have to. Turn a light on. Turn it on. And it’s sweet talk the morning after because you only feel good around her. Say you’re sorry if you have to.
Turn a light on. Turn it on. Turn a light on. Turn it on.
Track Name: April Showers
Say what you want to say. We’ll all carry on somehow. No one’s listening to you, anyway. Hear what you want to hear. Pull out every hired gun. No one’s listening to you, anyway. No one’s listening to you, anyway. Anyway… Sing a little louder, dress a little darker, play a little
harder, now. Sing a little darker, dress a little louder, play a little harder, now. Say what you want to say. We’re all passing out on you. It’s all turned to pieces now, anyway. Sing a little louder, dress a little darker, play a little harder now. Play a little harder, now. Play a little harder, now.
Track Name: Explain
And they knew by the arms and the pins in the charm he was trying to make a break from the fear. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here. And the beast of the odds is that nobody stops, though we cry as if the company can hear. Explain, explain,
explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here. We both know that the post in your room was no company, no friend in the mirror. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here. Where you sat in that spot, you must have thought, when we waved as if it all were so clear. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why
nobody’s here. You would know from the pictures they showed there are things they say you can’t take from here. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me who carries them here. And we knew you had damned your demons down, but a whisper always fell on your ear. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here.
Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here. Explain, explain, explain, explain, explain to me why nobody’s here.
Track Name: Honey I've Flown
I left a note under our pillow. Read it when you wake, in the peace of the
dawn. Honey, I’ve flown. I love you so…more than a dream…more than a dream. My heart is free. I’ll give you everything, but I’ve got to go. But I’ll always come home. You and I’ve got so much time to spend. I’ve got broken promises I need to mend. Oh, my dear, our troubles will fade to an end. When my form crosses our front door, there’s nothing but you and me. Honey, I’ve flown, but I love you so…more than a dream…more than a dream.
Track Name: Kingdom Come
Well, they want you to change your name so you can be queen for a day. You can write on a smile, it may last you a while, but they want you to change your name. Well, it took all your words to agree. Say, the truth only hurts, same to me. You can write on the wall, but the wall’s bound to fall. And it took near a year to agree. Well, they told me I’d know when I saw it. And it hurts now to know that I bought it. You can fall down a well where it’s too dark to tell, singing “I’ll Fly Away” ‘till the morning. Whoa, what walks we weave to know. Whoa, what cost is kingdom come? Whoa, what walks we weave to know. Whoa, what cost is kingdom come? Whoa, what walks we weave to know. Whoa, what cost
is kingdom come?
