Lyrics

Lyrics from our album "Everything Aside" coming October 2nd 2015

-TYBEE-

 

I’m used to rising with the sunshine’s heat

It feels so good to be awake

Dreaming in shotgun, while my brother’s on the street

We only get what we can take

 

I don’t think too much about the future

It gave me a promise it can’t keep

I’m too scared to fuck it up to focus

So stressed out I can’t fall asleep

 

With Blue Comets o’r the ocean

Blue Comets streak the sky

Red and green on the horizon

Watch her waves come crashing into mine

 

We spend our days in Carolina

Then make our way towards beds down by the sea

We set our sights on California

And pray tomorrow’s warm enough to breathe

 

Chorus 

 

Baby I don’t want to hold on 

You don’t wanna take things slow

And I don’t wanna know

You’ve been going without me

You’ve been to the place we just see Blue

I’m crashing in the night

Falling in my own eyes

Drowning cause the tide’s so strong

It’s dragging me along

I can’t believe I was so wrong

 

All I wanted was your Blue Comets o’r the ocean

 

Chorus

 

-LOVE IS GONE-

 

My Love Is Gone

I miss her terribly

She said she’s coming back

But today it doesn’t feel like that

She’s gone, I miss her terribly 

 

Waking up on her side of the bed

Still messes with my head

But I carry on that routine of the day

Fine by myself I guess

But when that daylight falls to night

She’s not by my side 

I can’t feel right

She’s gone, I miss her terribly

 

In my dreams her voice is all I heard

Some days pass where I don’t say a single word

But I can see to yesterday

In hindsight should beg her to stay

She’s gone, I miss her terribly

 

My Love Is Gone

I miss her terribly

She said she’s coming back

But today it doesn’t feel like that

She’s gone, I miss her terribly

 

Now really though you need to know I owe you

From the bottom of my heart and to the far side of my soul

That every time you have to go I wanna tie you to the bed

And put some cuffs and around your wrists and never miss another moment

This is it 

Our lives are ending

No more pretending we’ll live forever

Don’t need another day without My Love

Above all else I am made of

Don’t let me go, oh oh

I never thought I’d be the guy who gets to miss you

I know I’d rather die than take a break and ache and fake it like I’ll make it to another day without her loving up above and way beyond all else I’ve ever felt just me and my self

 

Chorus

 

-LITTLE ARMS-

 

If you go anywhere

I’ll go there, too

Baby do not think there’s a thing you can say or do

To distract my love from you

Cause I will be there for you if you’re sad or alone

I am home

 

What would I do without those Little Arms hugging round my neck

I’m glad you look so much like your mom

I will be there for you when you’re sad or alone

I am home

 

I’m on my way

Couldn’t call myself a man before today

I’m holding my girl in my arms

The day is gonna come when she no longer needs us

As your folks that’s all we can hope for

I just want to be the one you see

Every day

 

Long before you were born

I picked my love up from the airport

Asked her if she would marry me

We knew we’d love you

We’ll be there for you if you’re sad or alone

Now I am home

 

Chorus

 

-DAY JOB-

 

This routine is getting tired

Four hours sleep, but still feel wired

The sugar rushing false energy

It’s fine with me

I’ll whine til I’ve expired

So dream awake, work overtime

Save up enough to stay alive

But do not dare to aim much higher

Just forty more years, then you might retire

Keep getting sick, and missing out

But can’t complain, or talk about it

Within me, and within you

Seems holding back is all that we can do

 

We know what they’d all say

“We’re busy til tomorrow, and can’t enjoy today”

I don’t know where we’re going

But I know where we are

We can make it farther

 

Feel the rush of freezing air

With the windows down and no one there

So you can sing a little louder

You can fantasize about her

I now believe in anything

Or maybe just don’t know a thing 

About this unpredictable life

Still can’t see how beautiful we are

 

Chorus

 

Second chances never came

It took such a long, long time

back when the chance was mine

I just want to quit my job

Sleep in every morning with the love of my life

Wake up when we want, make some coffee

Drink it out on the porch, cuddled up in the winter time

I don’t wanna work for the man anymore

Just play with my band at the local bar 

Where they can ignore us all they want to

But we know we’re one step closer with every song

 

Chorus

 

-NOT CLOSE ENOUGH-

 

Not Close Enough

But I can touch you with my stare

I kind of, sort of feel it in the air

The kind of home 

That I could only build with you

And nothing can undo 

 

The day that I first met you

We were just 14 years old

The way I felt about you then

And since that day has grown

I never thought I’d earn this chance

But I know you’re worth a fight

And amazingly it turned out I was right

 

I’ll stay trapped until forever in your heart

And I don’t want to do it any harm

It’s quite the opposite

I live to feel you’re smiling in the dark

You don’t have to see me either 

Cause you’ve known me for so long

 

The day that I first met you

We were just 14 years old

The way I felt about you then

And since that day has grown

I never thought I’d earn this chance

But I know you’re worth a fight

And amazingly it turned out I was right

Amazingly it turned out I was right

 

Not Close Enough

But I can touch you with my stare

I kind of, sort of feel it in the air

The kind of home

That I could only build with you

And nothing can undo

 

The day that I first met you

We were just 14 years old

The way I felt about you then

And since that day has grown

I never thought I’d earn this chance

But I know you’re worth a fight

And amazingly it turned out I was right

 

Amazingly it turned out I was right

 

-OUR LITTLE LIES-

 

I know there’s not time in the day

To judge all I see

Breaking down everything

And to keep all the plans with the people I say I’ll make time for

 

I know there’s so much I can do

To grow and make more of myself and have dreams come true

But I won’t do a thing

And I bet that neither will you

 

Cause it seems we all believe Our Little Lies

I could have been something if I’d only tried

I know that I will change

But will I grow?

I just hope you’ll always be there when I come home

 

I swear I thought it all through

Cause her family’s now my family, too

But some days it feels like that’s just more people to let down

 

So tell your self how “That’s the way it goes”

Doubt yourself now and the feeling just grows 

And it never shoes a way

Only holds us back

 

Chorus

 

Now they can’t keep being the one’s I lean on

Every single day

I’m only going to keep you til I throw my life away

If you’ve already quit

And that’s it

Then why haven’t you gone?

I think I’m pleasing everyone

But I’m letting myself drown

 

Chorus

 

-ONLY SUNDAY-

 

Heard your voice before I saw you

Singing Florence to a crowd of cool kids

You were parked out by the alleyway

I’ll help you carry your keyboard to your car

 

Now I feel so guilty for the way that I loved her

But Only Sunday I’m sorry for the pain I gave

Why should I feel guilty for the way that I loved her?

Just this one day... Forgive me

And tomorrow I’m back at it again

 

Living poorly, so love the same

Feeling overwhelmed, like Sunday again’

I just want to be able to make it through on my own

But I’m only mostly alone

Cause I’m only alone with you

 

Chorus

 

This would be so much more simple if we could meet again

For the first time

 

Now I feel so guilty for the way that I loved you

Just this one day... Forgive me

 

-FEELS MAKE BELIEVE-

 

I’ll stroke your hair for a while

Cause it’s my turn to make you smile

I don’t feel bad when you’re pretending to be mad

I know that you’re in love, cause so am I

 

You can call me out now darling

I’m pretending to be strong

She makes me feel all right 

When I’m so wrong

 

Yesterday Feels Make Believe

Tomorrow never comes

But this morning I am really in your arms

 

Junk TV, almost no money

We split the bill, and share a bowl of cereal

We dream along our chosen path

Could cry, but instead you make us laugh

Your love’s worth more than anything I have

 

Chorus

 

You still surprise me easily 

Here’s a rose, happy Tuesday

I’ll sing cause I don’t know what to say

Still nervous when you look at me

 

Yesterday Feels Make Believe

Tomorrow never comes

But this morning I am really in your arms

 

Chorus

 

-ONE DOWN-

 

I love giving advice

Be careful before you take it

I have never used it myself 

I don’t know if it’ll work

 

It’s just too easy

Guaranteed one day to come back and bring me on down

I’ll finally pay for those words

 

Won’t you take it in

Form another scene

In your mind, where this works out okay

 

Oh love will you keep them off me?

With you it’s like no one can stop me

Can that body you’ve got be copied?

It’s all I see anymore

 

You’re just what I needed

You’re the message I never deleted

I can hear you again

And I’ll smile

Just like I did before

 

Chorus

 

It’s just too easy

Guaranteed one day to come back and bring me on down

I’ll finally pay

 

Chorus

 

-I’LL SEE YOU AGAIN-

 

Hurt tends to linger

Outstay your welcome by a while

Missing a smile, cause you’re looking away

 

She walked up to me

Said, “ What are you doing in this place? 

I barely recognized your face. It’s me. It’s Julie. 

From so long ago. How have you been? 

Where did I let the time go? I’ll See You Again”

 

How long will I be gone?

You knew your way back her all along

 

Ian and Stephen drank two bottles of wine

Nobody needs two bottles of wine

 

Hello, garden

Hello, sky

Hello, love that made me cry

I yearn, but I do not learn a thing from tears

 

Chorus

 

Hello, garden

Hello, sky 

Hello, love that made me cry

I yearn, but I do not learn a thing from tears

 

I’ll See You Again

 

Chorus
