Odd Nugget Social-done

Slow sorrow and tune bloom brilliant and subdued in Ashley Jana And The Midnight High's tune "Coulda Been Somethin'".

Most sentimental songs get preachy, but this song knows it's preaching to the choir.

Raindance; you're soaking.

A puddle of tears takes you under.

Sunken, sad and all alone...

Thoughts pain you like lightning and thunder.
