These youngsters are pretty good songwriters and players. This tune is called Broken Window Serenade.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmo8s3PD-kc&feature=youtu.be


A couple of pretty flowers
Is what I brought to you
I saw you through a broken window
With a different point of view
You had signs of depression
From a long line of sin
And your face tells a story
Bout the places you have been
I love you so,
I thought you should know

And that muddy waters flowin
As you take my hand
Past the creek down by the holler
Through your daddies land
I could buy you a diamond
But I cannot change your world
Cuz I ain't got no money
You'll never be my girl no no
I thought you should know
You was gonna be a singer
Or be a movie star
But you cant catch no breaks baby
And Hollywood is hard
Now you work down at the time out
Off 155
And you're dancing for your dollar
Just tryin to stay alive
It hurts me so
I thought you should know

You feed your addiction
With your crystal meth
And I plea for your life
as it takes you to your death
You make your deal with the devil
As your looks begin to fade
I saw you laughin through the tears
As you slowly slipped away
I watched you go
I thought you should know
Yeah I watched you go
I thought you should know

That cold rain is pourin
As they lower you in a grave
I can barely recognize you
In your fragile state
No more signs of depression
From a long time ago
I throw in a pretty flower
As they slowly laid you low, it was a rose
I thought you should know
Yeah it was a rose
I thought you should know

A couple of pretty flowers is what I brought to you
I saw you through a broken window
With a different point of view..

Good music.  Sad tale told, though.

Very well done and cleanly recorded.  I like the more down home acoustic flavor to this band...  Country songs are all about reality and many of them are sad like this one...

Doesn't hurt that they hail from about 25 miles away from my home in East Texas.  These boys are from Palestine, TX.   Give a listen to some of their other tunes...

They have quite a few little gems. My brother sent me a bunch of tunes from them and I have quite enjoyed their songwriting and their style.
