words, images & music by russian red

now tell me what it is
it isn’t fair ’cause i’m wasting time
’cause it isn’t my heart, it isn’t my fault
and every situation understands, well
the anecdote of chasing the location to your door

’cause i’m wasting time
now i’m wasting money again
and all the cigarettes that i have never smoked
and all the letters that i have never sent

and he was sitting by the swimming pool
but he was scared ’cause it wasn’t his time, it wasn’t his chance
getting older’s not been on my plans but it’s never late
it’s never late enough for me to stay

’cause i’m wasting time
now i’m wasting money again
and all the cigarettes that i have never smoked
and all the letters that i have never sent

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter

    Nothing to add, other than I really appreciate the blog – I’ve found a lot of great, new music through you. At work, I just got a positive email from one of our customers, and it made me think of how many people only reach out on the net if they have something critical to say.
