best of 2022 • Courtney Barnett - Sunfair Sundown

 “Sunfair Showdown” show Barnett’s strengths: riffs and toplines married to a wryness as chronic as a scowl.

Oh, what a day, and congrats on the keys to your place
You've escaped the rat race, as they say
Now you're settling in for the stay anyway
You got a blank slate to renovate
Take it all
Yeah, you reap what you sow and so it goes
What you put in the ground comes around
When you don't really know what you're missing at all
In a daze, I can picture you whittling away
With such care, with such patience and grace
And I smile when you say that you'll build me a table one day
Well, I'd be so grateful
Sometimes it's hard, getting lost, you say is a fine art
Put the map down and follow the stars
Shall we leave? Are you sure?
Let me grab my bag, we can sneak out through the side door
In the dark, are you scared?
Did you hear those dogs bark?
And do you ever wonder what sets you apart?
Shine the torch on the path, darling, please don't let go of my arm
When you sleep, are you warm? Can you feel my cold feet?
Are you good? Are you making ends meet?
At the end of the day, you're awake with your thoughts
And I don't want you to be alone
And I don't want you to be alone
Yeah, I don't want you to be alone
And I don't want you to be alone
