Neverending Sweetheart

from 50​-​90 2021 by The Fishermen & the Priestess

backstage exclusive


This was recorded on a four-track cassette tape mailed around the country. It originated in California with Elesimo (bass), then went to Wisconsin to nancyrost (wurlitzer piano), then came to Washington, DC where pfoo (another wurliltzer piano) and I finished it up.

Standup: I did the lyrics and vocal. This was hard, I spent time on Titular and Lyricloud looking for random ideas that would spark something. Then I used Random Lyric Generator, which is awful but DID give me the adjective neverending for my sweetheart. Also put some of the lyrics I had into an AI called Talk to Transformer, which spit out riffs on some of the ideas I had. I think it ended up in an OK place, but it was a lot of hard, weird work.

Elesimo: I love starting a 4-track collaboration. You come up with something small and simple, put it in an envelope, and let it go. Then after a few weeks you listen to what it became, and it's always such a nice surprise. This one turned out lovely, beautiful and sweet. Great job, everyone!


Take your time
And don’t you choose
There’s never enough
Time to lose

Never-ending sweethearts
Hopes are high
cowboys and sweethearts
never compromise

You’re up against
Hope and style
You’re up against
The miracle mile

Life gives you a left and a right
And a left
Take the punches
Do your best

Still we venture
every day
We take our chances
And we stay
