TEMPER, temper

2014 August 6


Jon & I are rarely apart–only about 8 to 10 hours a week.  Luckily, we’re best friends & rarely even argue.  But every couple I know has THAT set of friends.  You know them–the couple that fights constantly.  I’m talking about the ones that burn hot even in the easiest of situations.  They seem to thrive on it.  Our new song “Grouse & Grackle” is for them–inspired by the great-tailed grackle, often dubbed the “devil bird”. Here are the lyrics for G&G– found on our “Creekwood Crow” CD being released August 13th.

Grouse & Grackle by the Pea Pickin' HeartsGROUSE & GRACKLE

Temper like torch flame/Fanning the blaze
Nothing remains /But fire in the veins
Lush life in chains/Calling your name
Revel and remain /For momentary gain

(Chorus) Grouse like a grackle
Corn and cackle
Grappling with dawn
Tongues wag all along (repeat)

Fires ignite /At home tonight
An angry disguise / In a loving light
Advice divided / Feeling alive
Sense in the riot / Where love resides


Feeding the flame / Lovers lay claim
Famous for drama / Name of the game
No burr in saddle / Bridle your tongue
Tongues will waggle / Passions undone
