Alejandro Escovedo

I ushered at the Lyric tonight and heard Escovedo’s concert in support of his new album, Real Animal, including “Always a Friend.”

Wasn’t I always a friend to you
Wasn’t I always a friend to you
Do you a wanna be my friend
Do you a wanna be my friend
Every once in a while, honey let your love show
Every once in a while, honey let yourself go
Nobody gets hurt, no
Nobody gets hurt

We came here as two, we laid down as one
I don’t care if I’m not your only one
What I see in you, you see in me
But if I be wrong, smoke my smoke, drink my wine
Bury my snakeskin boots somewhere I’ll never find
Still be your lover baby

Uh oh, Uh oh
Uh oh

Wasn’t I always a friend to you (x2)
Do you wanna be my friend (x2)
Every once in a while, honey let yourself go
Every once in a while, honey let your love show
Nobody gets hurt, no
Nobody gets hurt

Well I could be an astronaut on the wrong side of the moon
Or wrapped up like a baby on a bus
Where ever I go you’ll be with me
But if I be wrong take ’em out to sea, I’ll take the floor
You sleep in late get your rest, I’ll catch up on mine
Still be your lover baby

Uh oh, Uh oh

Wasn’t I always a friend to you
Wasn’t I always a friend to you
Every once in a while, honey let your love show
Every once in a while, honey let yourself go
Yea! Nobody gets hurt, it’s only love
Uh oh Uh oh
Uh oh

To hear him, here’s an NPR show live in concert from WXPN and Wiggins Park in Philadelphia on July 11, 2008.
