Evening Hymns “I Can Only Be Good” – Listen

Evening Hymns is one of the musical projects of Canadian Jonas Bonnetta, and today’s featured song is the first new music under this name since 2015’s ‘Quiet Energies‘.   It’s a  song that enumerates all the reasons not to fall in love, or stay in love.Jonas Bonnetta says of the new song “It was difficult to write this while in a relationship. I was writing from the perspective of someone falling out of love and with the end in sight. Knowing that was going to come and that I’d have to deal with this intense destruction of all of these comforts and shared dreams that I’d known for years. Looking around and something just not feeling right even though it should have.”

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
