Check out our new music video for THE MAN WHO COULD! Here's the link:
Here's the story:
One of our film collaborators just finished a short film/music video inspired by our song THE MAN WHO COULD from "Beautiful Empty". It's a near-miss love story about two people who didn't fall in love, but probably should have.
The filmmaker is Drai C. Lloyd. She's written, directed and filmed music videos, short films, a full length and other crazy shit. She's a huge talent -- exactly why we feel so utterly lucky and perpetually honored to collaborate with artists the way we do.
I'd be eternally grateful if you'd help debut this video to the world by sharing it with your friends, and generally fall in love with Drai's work.

P.S. Here are the lyrics:
THE MAN WHO COULD
written by john common
The beautiful ones smoke along the banisters
Watching the mating dance swirl around you down below
I was just walking down the street
I wasn't planning to be
The man who could really, really love you
When the bars give out and lovers run into the street
I’ll be lost in a fitful sleep dreaming of you
You stood there like a jewel
While I acted like a reckless fool
Not the man who could really, really love you
So the next time you’re alone
And some nervous boy tries to say hello
Don't be surprised
When you look into his eyes
If you see the man who could really, really love you
He’s the man who could really, really love you
