Living Proof
Gregory Alan Isakov Lyrics


The night fell with bicycle bells, the dark had wooden teeth
Oh we broke on up to hill country, the air was thin and sweet
Lord, the air was thin and sweet

She held onto my coat that night, like a kid lost in her sleeves
Oh we warmed the ground, we hushed our sound
We slept on walking feet
Lord, we slept on walking feet

Oh Darlin, pardon me
Can you help me remember
When we were all flying free
We were dust from our bodies
And we were flicker and flame, yeah we burned till the morning
Darlin, pardon me

Off in the night, you can hear 'em bright,
The Sirens of the Sea
Oh and city birds and alley girls, they all just sing for free
Oh they all just sing for free

Oh Darlin, pardon me
But do I look familiar
When we were just larkspur and leaves
We were strung through the tether
And we were all silver and stone
We were the lust of the miners
Darlin, pardon me

That sky glowed all calico like phosphor in the sea
To the ground we fall, she owns us all
Kings and boys and beast
Kings and boys and beast

Oh Darlin, pardon me
But do I look familiar
When we were just flying free
And we burned from a freight train
And we were some flicker of truth in the smile of a salesman
And we were all buried jewels 'neath the grass in the suburbs
And we were all living proof
Oh Darlin, pardon me

It makes me so happy to think that some people in this world have yet to discover this music and it will change their life. It's so exciting

Samantha Cruz

And I agree!!!!! His music is beautiful and soothing

voice of many waters

G.A. I 's music is a buried jewel...we who know it can see it sparkling just under a layer of Earth. The reason he is not huge is because he will not sell himself / his soul.

this song makes you remember the happiest moments in your life which gives u this sort of nostalgic sad feeling yet contentment at the same time... one of my favourite artists

The abandoned Six Flags just outside of New Orleans; it went under after Katrina. You can google it for more pics/vids

Felt dead for the past few days and GAIs music got me through it. Gotta get home and buy quite a few CDs.

Amelia T

This song is just wonderful. It has that power to lift your spirit up with that beautiful lyrics. Love it.

elan sings

It’s a beautiful record ☺️

Parker Johnson

When I found Gregory, I didn’t feel as depressed. Favorite by far is probably master and a hound.
