The sun was smiling down over Market Street
It was my birthday
And you were with me
I was busy stressing out
‘Cause I knew this could not last
Your bags were packed; your bus was in the station

And so I held you tight
Said, “Baby it’ll be all right
You don’t have to worry
About anything we did last night
We were both drunk
And you were on vacation”

And everyone was laughing out loud at the party
We were both stoned and playing the guitar
When I caught your eye over some silly 90’s cover
Let’s get the hell out of here, take it a little too far

The rain was pissing down over Third Avenue
It was October
And I was with you
You were busy stressing out
‘Cause you told yourself this was a one night
Kind of thing

And so you held me close
Said, “I’ve got a funny feeling
That this ain’t the best idea
For either of us here”
And I said, “Don’t worry, it’s not a big deal
Kind of thing”

And everyone was moving to the music on the club scene
We were both bored, getting blitzed at the bar
When you caught my eye over some shitty Top 40
Let’s split a cab out of here, take it a little too far

And I’m sorry that I lied
But that was the best night
That I’ve ever had

So now I’m sitting on my hands
Trying not to call you
Making all my plans
To get out and see you
Cleaning out my closet
Trying to find a trace of you left in this place
And I’m breaking all the laws
That I set for myself
When I said I’d never get caught
Up in this kind of stuff
But I’m so wrapped up I don’t believe myself
I haven’t slept in weeks

Just thinking about you now…

The snow was falling down lightly on the house
It was Christmas Eve
I called you but you didn’t pick up
I called you but you didn’t pick up
I called you but you didn’t wake up

We love making music and playing shows. We’re not that fond of writing third-person biographies and comparing our sound to a synthesis of indistinguishable post-genres. We hope our songs will get your feet stomping, your knees knocking, and your heart pounding – because that’s what they do for us. ... more
