And then you drink 3 more beers, watch the lights go a little softer, stop thinking, your hands cold but safe inside your overcoat. The bar is almost empty now, but you don't go home, trying to catch what is left of the music in the ringing lightbulbs. Watch the empty stage, try to remember his voice once again, carve his face in your memory. After you've compared him with Dylan, imagined him as José González with a banjo, a shaved Devendra Banhart or Joanna Newsom's new boyfriend, you don't have much else to say about him. Yet you're sitting there with your sixth warm beer, trying to remember the lyrics to that song which made you feel as if your life was at once solved and finished... As the bar gets crowded again, you start to forget who you are. You feel that Scandinavian (yet countryesque) voice fade away along with any image of your own face you've ever had. Don't worry, he won't go away, The Tallest Man On Earth is here to stay, even if you don't. [Well if I ever get to slumber justlike I'm old deep in the ground, hell, I won't be found.] -postbop
