Matt Waters at Caffeine Underground

September 14 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

I will be performing my second set at this lovely Brooklyn venue on the second Friday of September. Come on down. I’d love to play you some songs & hear a condensed summary of your life. I will be playing new songs including Camila (lyrics below) & Houdini’s Last Words.

Camila

Well I could sleep more
If I turned out this light
But my loan got denied
For dreaming
And the best songs
Live at night

I wish I had your mind
For company at this hour
I have no one to hold
And starlight
Never kisses
True city flowers

I experiment electric
In my peaceful laboratory
Shaping static with
My palms aflame
So they may feel continuity
In a make-believe story

Hello & goodnight
Like a comet in flight
I was holding you
An hour ago
But like the mercuriality of the moon
In bed with your shadowed face in our mirrored room
When morning came
I never knew
Which Camila
I’d be talking too
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Am I talking too?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Are you?

Night conversations while
Sleepwalking the estate
A bouquet of black roses in
Your unzipped leather coat
You tear petals
For the defeat I tolerate

For one of us is living
And one of us is dead
One of us knows
But only wants to feed
The neon swans
Their crumbs of bread

And when I try to touch you
That’s when the dream must end
I return to the world where your
Melodies found company
And all you wanted from me
Was to be your friend

Hello & goodnight
Like a comet in flight
I was holding you
An hour ago
But like the mercuriality of the moon
In bed with your shadowed face in our mirrored room
When morning came
I never knew
Which Camila
I’d be talking too
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Am I talking too?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Which Camila?
Are you?
