Hey Casanova Lyrics

Hey Casanova
You don't look too good
But I know times are toughYou never found your paradise
Like you said you would
And it's all catching upIt may be that we will never change
You may never come to your promised land
And it's a gray morningWith all you have
Still you turn your back
You're given every chance
How can you ask more than that?
But still you have to askHey tragic hero
Did you get passed by?
Well, what do all those heathens knowHave a seat, a cup of wine
And have a good cry
And then it's time to go'Cause you're living up to your own worst cases
You're looking for hope in some pretty strange places
And that's a gray mourningWith all you have
Still you turn your back

You're given every chance
How can you ask more than that?
But still you have to ask
I really need for you to askWith all you have
Still you're turning
With all you have
Still you're turning
TurningHey you lone ranger,
Is it cold tonight
So far beneath the stars
Maybe the desert will do you good

Duncan Scott Sheik (born November 18, 1969) is an American singer-songwriter. Born in Montclair, New Jersey, Sheik's upbringing was split between his parents' home in South Carolina and that of his grandparents in New Jersey. His grandmother, a piano graduate of The Juilliard School, taught him to play the piano and encouraged his musical development. He graduated from Phillips Academy in 1988, after which he studied semiotics at Brown University.

Sheik began his professional musical career playing for other acts, including Liz And Liza (with Lisa Loeb and Liz Mitchell), and played on His Boy Elroy's 1993 album. Through connections from fellow Brown alum Tracee Ellis Ross, Sheik's music gained the attention of executives at Atlantic Records. Duncan Sheik's eponymous debut album for Atlantic spawned the 1996 hit single "Barely Breathing" in the US, which remained on the charts for 55 straight weeks. In 1998, he was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for "Barely Breathing."

In addition to his work as a solo artist, he collaborates with the poet and writer Steven Sater. Together, they have written an album of art-pop songs, ''Phantom Moon'', a Broadway musical, ''Spring Awakening'', and the score for the film ''A Home at the End of the World''. They are currently working on a new musical based on the story of "The Emperior and the Nightingale", which will have its workshop premiere in 2007 at the La Jolla Playhouse.

As of 2009, Whisper House is the sixth studio album recorded by Duncan Sheik, released in the United States on January. The album is Sheik's first for the RCA Victor label, as well as his first in the wake of success from composing music for the Tony award-winning musical Spring Awakening.
