Listen to Jasmine Gillison’s New Single “Concrete.”


Concrete – it’s where I want my feet to stay
Strong walls – maybe better off that way

This brain has been doing flips and shit
And this heart – I can’t put a finger on it
And it goes up down up down up down everyday
And it goes up down up down up down everyday

But then the concrete cracks
And then there’s no looking back
But then the concrete cracks a little more
Look down under the cracks – a new floor

This brain is getting punched and pulled and pinched
But it learns what it couldn’t learn without all this
And this heart is getting wrung out more and more these days
But it feels a joy it could only feel this way

Jasmine Gillison – Lyrics, Vocals, Acoustic Guitar
Ben Tufts – Producer, Drums, Synth
Mark Williams – Electric Guitar
Kevin de Souza – Bass Guitar

Recorded and Mixed by Ben Green at Ivakota Recording in Washington, DC
