about

I recorded this EP from December '09 to January '10 at home. All these songs were written recently, within the past five months or so, and a couple of them were still works in progress (as in: had no lyrics or vocal melody ideas) when I began recording them. It all came together quickly, though, and here we are.

Once again, you can download this album for free or you can choose your price. Either method is much appreciated.
Enjoy!

Track Name: Something Else
Oh it's all so short-lived
three days of bare trees and dead leaves and I'm gone
a week of waiting and I can't tell
a night of drunk love and what the hell
a life of questions we can't work out
and we're on to something else.
Track Name: A Delicate Thing
I waited out of fear, and to make it fully clear
That what you had was left behind, and we wouldn't waste time
Now I'll watch you dance
And I'll fumble for your hands
Oh
Oh

I'll stand here as long as you like
With your bike between our hips
Refusing to say goodnight
We're eye to eye and lip to lip

Move so slow, it's a delicate thing
And maybe ruined when I sing
But your smile says otherwise
I'd kill to try us on for size
Oh
Oh

I'll stand here as long as you like
With your bike between our hips
Refusing to say goodnight
We're eye to eye and lip to lip

I guess I fucked it up again
And no pity from your friends
'Cause you never told them anything
No, you never told them anything.
Track Name: Half A Second
Why do I pretend I'm shy every time one goes by?
I know it's strange, but I always act the same, don't know why.
She was next to me, we were looking at the same music on the rack
And for half a second I caught a glance

Why did I look away?
I should've got your name
With your white coat and your red hair
If I wasn't dumb I would've stared

I asked the clerk behind the desk about a band and she said, "Funny, someone just asked about them."
And I knew that it was her, 'cause she'd just walked out the door
And for half a second I ran
But wouldn't that be creepy? Wouldn't she misunderstand?

Why did I look away?
I should've got your name
With your white coat and your red hair
If I wasn't dumb I would've stared
Why did I look away?
I should've got your name
With your white coat and your red hair
If I wasn't stupid I would've cared.
Track Name: If I Told You
If I told you what I really thought
I don't think you would believe me
Anyway, it's all my own fault
All the way from the beginning

And now you've got another one
And I'm really glad you do
But I can't believe it's been so long
I wonder if you wonder too

Just let me
Let me
Let me
Let me know
Oh
Track Name: Mine
I hear them all the time, the ones you called unfair
And I wish that they were mine; you should hear the things that they say to me, dear.
Funny how it rhymes, everything that we did fits in fine
Funny how you smile when what I want falls through each time

I can't seem to act like me for you
I cannot get past whatever it is that you hide from me

Now we're over it again and you're calling me your friend
There's no sense of wonder left when everything is so predictable in the end

I can't seem to act like me for you
And I cannot get past whatever it is that you hide from me.
Track Name: Dumbed Down
I don't mean to leave you out
Dumbed down again with your oldest friends
And it makes no difference what you thought I meant

I'll forget you if you prefer
But I'll never move on to her, oh no

Oh
Oh

Dumbed down again with your closest friends
And it makes no difference either way it ends

I'll forget you if you prefer

Oh
Oh.
