Last Year

This song is by Jim O'Rourke and appears on the album Simple Songs (2015).

Isn't that the guy
From last year?
Hey, he's a wild man
He's a real pioneer

Hasn't moved an inch
Since last year
Hey, the man's an artist
He's committed to his craft

I wouldn't last a day
Not out here
Hey, not to be heartless
Hey, I think he does it for a laugh

Is someone standing there?
If you can hear
Please come in near
I'm in need of a friend

It seems I was left here
Try looking for my last volunteer
Picked the wrong one again

She fell asleep ahead of me
Now I'm an absentee
Underneath this tree
In the public domain

Bring yourself in closer still
Make yourself at home
And don't mind the smell
It's been more than a year

It's a kind of house arrest
To be dispossessed
Without my last request
'Cause I'm more than infirm

If you could set me alight
I'd be much obliged
And if you're so inclined
You could keep yourself warm

Isn't that the fire
From last year?
Hey, it's a hot one
It's a real nine alarm

Wasn't there a park
Here last year?
Hey, I left my lighter around here

If you see that guy
From last year
Say that he can keep it

I've got another one at home

(Hey)
