Moonlight 03:48
I decided to live forever Or die trying As long as I held you In my arms close you’d stay At peace with the world And the love inside you dying One more dance you’d say The devil comes today Only in your life Do you find peace and quiet When I’m not around Around to make you pay And all you ever wanted Was life beyond the lies My thoughts drift away To you and me someday When you were alone The world seemed so quiet Now your in my arms And the drums begin to play The old man in the rain Stands wrecked beside his bottle His crutch is whiskey pain To him it’s all the same You felt for a long time The peace inside you dying You felt a long time The roaring in your veins And I felt a long time I don’t want to take you down Well I made you play the game But you are not to blame
Daylight No one Sittin’ with a gun And I’m broke down Breaking Breaking in the sun Hold tight, Virginia A mile from our home And it’s Comstock to Norfolk Mile from our home   Prison held me Held me through the years And I’m sorry to you For the lies and for the tears   How’s our little one How’s our precious son Does he call your man daddy Does he see him as the one   [Chorus] I am too small For you now I am too small For you now   Will I find you Home and not alone  As a new train rides in On the broken backs of bone Take my memories Throw them in the road Yesterday’s memories Are tomorrow’s heavy load   [Repeat Chorus] I am too small For you in your world I am too small For you now
Ugly 04:09
[Chorus] Hey Have you seen A very ugly girl Well, I’m with her Hey Do you know me Well, I’m kind of white I’m kind of bitter I’m really just kind of misunderstood I love your sister but I know she’d never treat me good [Repeat Chorus] Well we danced in the moonlight When she told me goodbye Such an evil mind Oh yeah And the world just spits on you like a dog And if you want something from it You better hold on to that hog [Repeat Chorus] And the world just spits on you like a dog If you want something from it You better hold on to that hog [Repeat Chorus]
She said, “Show me your tattoo.” She said, “Show me what you want to.” She laid there naked in the snow Her breath like cannon smoke I’m weary in the dawn I’ve been weary all day long Your orange coat and slippers on the floor Were you drunk when you bought them These girls these days They wake up and get away And I can’t find a way to stop them [Chorus] But if you show her your tattoo She just might love you I bought it and I put it on They said it wouldn’t peel I bought it from a gumball machine I hope she thinks it’s real In my car we’ll drive real far Headlights bleeding on the road I’m choking on her cigarette tar She really is disgusting [Repeat Chorus]
Hey Now 04:19
Well I guess I’m wrong too much To be true The devil breaks your heart But I lie to you I guess I’m wrong too much My heart’s in stone Please let me go Just let me [Chorus] Hey now, hey now What you gonna do, I’m so broken Hey now, hey now What you gonna do, I’m so broken Hey now, hey now What you gonna do, I’m broken down tonight Yeah Oh, I’m broken down tonight Well a drunken beggar cries And here I’ve lost him with the lies That I told forever The river wilds its way close to me The candle burns back the day to a dream Oh, and I could stay for good And you would never know But I must go Just let me [Repeat Chorus]
Cold Rain 04:19
Cold rain falling All is dark, but storming Trees split, they scream and crack The thunder’s wail breaks their back And the cats all hide in mother’s barn And the sleeping ghosts can do harm But, baby, I was your lover Baby, I was your song Please don’t find another It’s just I’ve loved you so long You run out to the night Soaked in the rain With your dress white And you fall to your knees and moan You’re only screaming when you’re alone All that glass you held in your hand Tight as you did, well, I don’t understand And you let it fall to the cliffs down below And I watched it shatter and I watched you go But, baby, I was your lover I held you closer than me But I still don’t remember How to lose what I can’t even see Baby, I was your lover Baby, I was your song And before you meet another It was I loved you so long
Secrets 03:22
When did you fall I never noticed at all I never thought you done me wrong Oh the thunder on the bay When you’re walking away And the ships all come to call Your name [Chorus] But I’m pretty sure That your secrets are unkind This boy on the shore is losing his mind You’ve known this before And I’ve passed out blind Trying to survive But falling anyway I never cared for you much Until you did decide To hold me when you cried All the pain that I stole Deep in your soul I took it into mine That’s where it hides [Repeat Chorus] [Repeat Chorus]


"He delivers a unique brand of country-folk blues-rock that's fed through a modern-day Brooklyn boho filter. "Hey Now, " "Secrets" and "I'll Be 'Round" all possess the artist's loose and ragged brand of blues-rock, flavored with mandolin, horns, piano and more, all of it spiced with an occasionally dirty-ass guitar tone. And despite the retro origins of the genre, there's not one lyric here that's cliché. This artist is a diamond in the rough." - Music Connection Magazine

"The whole collection is characterized by thoughtful musical arrangements and genuine lyrics, the hallmark of great Americana music...the perfect blend of rock and funky, heartfelt innovation and empathetic tales." - Americana Highways

"With a carnival in tow, Mazzetti saunters though dark back alleys as he tells a tale of a troubled man" - OhEsTee Music
