None of These Songs are About You or Anyone You Know

  • we recorded this brief collection of songs when we finished high school, in the summer.

    It is both a relieved "good-bye" and an uncertain "hello" (but not to anyone in particular).

    It reminds you of the feeling you get in your legs when you've been in the ocean for a while and your body feels like its being hit by invisible waves.

Track Name: Golden Cage
Across the Sea
Just the wind and me
Her comes the rain,
make my day
I want to stay at home
and never want to go
Live in a cage, my golden cage

Amelie,
dressed in blue and green
works in the cafe de doux moulins
first to catch my eye
first to make me keen
I'll live in a fictional fantasy
I always feel at home
whenever I'm alone
I'll live in a cage
My golden cage

I,
left my shoes at your parents house
To my surprise, you knew my name
You always did. (You're all wasted?)

I,
hit my head on the mistletoe
And I,
Always come when your parents go.
And they never know.
Track Name: My Dear
My dear,
Why is it that you only do the things you know I wouldn't want you to?
I know I'll never have you, but that doesn't mean that I still won't try.

My dear,
Why is it that you only do the things you know I wouldn't want you to?
I'm beginning to rethink that look that I saw in your eyes.

But, in the end, I find
that all the things that I have tried to leave behind
are really just burning holes through the pages in my memories...my memories...

My dear,
The air is thickening in here.
We're so many unsaid words from being in the clear,
but I know from loving you that those will always be the ones you're hiding from.

My dear,
It seems we have this conversation
Most every single day with little variation.
My heart is asking questions that I know you'll never have the answers for.

But, in the end, we'll find
that all things that we thought that we had left behind
are really just burning holes through the pages of our memories...our memories...
Track Name: I Was Only Trying To
High school and "the Golden Rule."
I played the games, and I played the fool.
Then, I got caught looking at what I can't have,
and wasted so much time just to make you laugh...

Where have all my good thoughts gone?
Have I chased them away or have they moved along?
Yeah, well, I never got the chance to say:
I love it when you wear your hair that way.

But, when the winter's winds have died,
and all the leaves go green on the trees again,
you'll find that I was only trying to catch you
like the falling star
you are, to me.

Set me free from this net I'm in.
Yeah, cut the ties and let me swim.
I got caught looking at what I can't have
And not a day goes by where I don't look back
and say...

When the winter's winds have died,
and all the leaves go green on the trees again,
you'll find that I was only trying to catch you
like the falling star
you are, to me.
Track Name: Love is a Dream
Guess I was never all that you thought I would be.
And, if I could fix myself, would you still be with me?
I have been betrayed by lies I thought were true
and all the things that "love" told me to do.

Love is a dream. Love is a dream.
'Cuz every time I get so close,
but every time it seems to slip away.

What else can I do? Don't let me fall apart.
It always ends the same, no matter how it starts.
And I have been betrayed by lies I told myself.
I never should have told you how I felt.

Love is a dream. Love is a dream.
'Cuz every time I get so close,
but every time it seems to slip away. (Repeat)
