I Savor The Pain You Cause Me – Sand

It starts early and it never stops
If anything, it gets more intense over time
There’s no avoiding this curse
There’s no escaping this blessing

I’ve resigned to feed the flame until my fuel is spent
For you, child
I pretend to be more than I am
I believe every lie I can

I wouldn’t know you if we met today
But I would fall again
And excuse myself
And lose my place
And wander
And crash like a wave
Then dissolve into the sand

New album "Observations" available now. A veteran of NYC’s underground music scene, Mike Power played on the stages of such beloved lost venues as CBGB’s and Kenny’s Castaways, as well as stalwart surviving ones like Arlene’s Grocery and the Bitter End as singer/songwriter/bassist with Late Model Humans. In 2020, quarantining from the global pandemic he worked remotely with other artists to record a collection of new music called Observations, that infuses his punk roots with introspective acoustic pieces.
